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 meetups based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.

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 one 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 Tucson Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

REVIEWS
This class presented a variety of difficult shooting environments and learning opportunities with needing to shoot through glass or fencing and in challenging lighting situations. Lot of great things to take photos of at a Zoo.

Great Bird Photography Event. Capturing birds can be a challenge. Today we learned how to shoot different kinds of birds in different settings such as on water, in flight, in trees, and with changing light. I took lots of images and even captured a few good ones!

Another great event by Richard and the Tucson Photography Group. Macro Photography is something I have always wanted to try. It was fun to learn to look for details to photograph. I feel like I grew as a photographer today and I must go out and buy a macro lens now.

Very well organized and prepared class. Started out at the library going over some of the areas of opportunity with Magazine Photography. We then went to several pre-scouted locations for a variety of shooting ideas and practice. Ended with a wrap up that included image review and critiques.

Richard was very knowledgeable and had some great things he shared with the group. I also really thought him sitting down with us individually was great at the end. He looked at every single picture we took, and advised us what was good and what didn?t quite work. I also would like to thank him, and the lovely young ladies who posed for the group.
