We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Manchester. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.


Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos in the Manchester Photography Facebook Group

Adam is absolutely brilliant - I love the focus of having little exercises to do, the friendliness and welcoming nature of him and the other photographers, and the individual help he gives everyone. Every session really helps me understand more about my camera and how to use it and grow in confidence, so thank you!

I enjoyed how relaxed it was and that we had a nice mixture of being taught but also being able to wander and find things that we each found interesting to photograph. It was really nice to then see all the different photos we all came back with.
