ABOUT WARRINGTON
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Warrington.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

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!

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.

Join the Warrington Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 2 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

Absolutely superb. I tried so hard to pick up on the ins and outs of using the camera on manual, without success, until today. I picked up so much. The three and a half hours flew over. Mike is not only a very professional photographer, but also an excellent teacher. It's just a pity he can't change the weather! :)

Dave is a great tutor and an excellent source of ideas. He taught us at our own level and was very good at guiding and steering us. We discussed perspective, framing, subject isolation, light, using height and the floor, camera angles, foreground interest, reflections and slow shutter techniques when trying to capture reflections in water. Great fun, many thanks.

I would recommend this course as a follow up from the beginners class that is also offered in the group. However, you don’t need to do that class to do this one, you can just jump right in! For me, I found this class as a great opportunity to practice and fine tune the elements that were discussed in the beginners class. It was a great help to have further “supervision” when taking more shots and use Dave’s expertise to draw upon. Dave is very knowledgeable on the different makes/models of camera and that was a great help for me as I changed cameras between the two classes to I was able to ask Dave on certain settings etc. Dave is very helpful and patient and happy to go over any areas should you still be in doubt. I’m also enjoying the different settings the classes take place in. Having lived in the NW for over 20 years I still don’t know a lot of places so the settings of the events are giving me ideas for when I want to go off and have some practice on my own. Really enjoying the group and will look at booking another with Dave ASAP!
