ABOUT SEATTLE
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 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 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 Seattle Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

I though it was good. I like that I learned that it is easier to size images for submission in LR and add watermarks vs PS. Charlies personality was great.

I absolutely loved it. Charlie was a very good communicator, that clearly came to the Meetup with a few goals in mind. The location was great, I appreciated all the comments and suggestions that Charlie made. Also, sometimes when hosting an event, you may have a group that is a little on the quiet/shy side. Charlie was great with knowing when to jump in himself and get it rolling.

I was very pleased with this event. I felt so much better about how to use my camera and take photographs without feeling so frustrated. Charlie was really great! Very informative & helpful! He even showed me a few tricks with my camera I had no idea about.

It was very helpful. I wanted to learn to shoot manually and I didn't use Automatic once today.

Excellent! Jay , the instructor is very knowledgable. I was thinking 3 hours is a long class, but the time flew by. I could hardly believe it was over. For the first time in my life I shot in manual mode. My confidence is higher now and while I'm a beginner and have a lot to learn, I feel less intimidated by my camera. Thank you, Jay!
