Beginner's Photography Class

Beaumaris - 9am - 3 Hours

Ready to learn more about your camera and get out of automatic exposure? Now is your chance!

Join us as we break down your camera to help you learn about shutter speed, aperture, ISO and how these settings affect your exposure.

We will then put your new knowledge to the test with the guidance of a professional photographer.
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 in Edmonton.

  • 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 Edmonton Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    Title or Location: Crystal Cove State Park CA
    While photographing the hummingbirds in Crystal Cove State park, a park ranger stopped and told me about the Albino hummingbird and the likely location. Following his instructions, I found this hummingbird. It was difficult getting a photo because of the sun location, so had to find my way into the scrub brush. The park ranger warned me about rattle snakes and their babies, the mom and babies will all attack at once and that would be a heavy dose of venom.

    A blanket of snow is just that, a blanket, a covering, a surface accumulation of snow that serves to protect and insulate our cherubs from the extreme weather is a blessing.

    Title or Location: Abraham Lake
    I was on a day trip with my friend Sydney last February that took us past Abraham Lake and down into Banff National Park. I pulled over to see if the lake was frozen enough where we were to go skating (spoiler, it wasn't at that end). But we saw the mountain goats grazing and thankfully I had my camera out. I got quite a lot of good shots that cold, windy day.

    Title or Location: VIVID Sydney - Sydney Harbour
    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.

    Photograph taken with Olympus OM-1 and Olympus 100-400mm Lens (100mm 1/1250 @ f/11). No real interesting story here. Just like to shoot the air shows when I can. Takes me back to my days in the Navy and seeing the jets coming and going from Hickam AFB when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor NSY&IMF and would shoot a round of golf at Hickam AFB's Mamala Bay golf course after working on the submarines. A couple of the holes on that course are near the runway for the base. The surprise sound of a

    Title or Location: Lost Dutchman Park
    This is a focus blend of 2 photos- 1 for the fence and the other for the rest of the photo. It was taken with a Sony A7RIV camera on a Sony 35mm GM lens at F1.8, ISO 2000, 15". The Superstion Mountains were named Monte Superstition by Spanish conquistadors who arrived in the 1540s. Greedy for gold, they tried to get local Apaches to show them where it was however, believing the area was home to the God of Thunder, they refused for fear of angering him. Apaches believe there's a hole to the
