ABOUT ABERDEEN
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 Aberdeen.

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 Aberdeen 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.

I feel like we received loads of useful information about how the camera operates, understanding the exposure triangle and framing our shot. I also started to understand white balance and how to adjust this within my camera. I'm looking forward to putting today's lesson into practice.

I had a really enjoyable morning taking pictures of places that I would normally just walk past! Neil pointed out lots of interesting architectural details and gave advice on proven camera angles and perspectives for these landmarks as-well as camera settings and processing advice. I would definitely sign up to events like this again.

The size of the group was just right. Neil was able to provide individual tutoring and guidance in equal amounts. The arrangements were easy, straightforward and sent in plenty time. The fact the 'class' was at the Beach using the area there to its full advantage was brilliant. I was able to ask the silly questions to the point where I gained a complete grasp of the basics. Neil was so prepared and just lovely!
