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 Boston.

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 Boston 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.

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.

Learned alot about the function of my camera and how to apply its settings to different photos/images.

Bob was fantastic! He was not only extremely knowledgeable about photography but was also very personable and made asking questions easy. He has a gift for teaching. The class was exactly what I had hoped a beginner class would be. I've already signed up for another one!

Excellent! Will Highly recommend to others. The course content perfectly matched what was stated on Facebook. The students were all intermediate level students which was great as no one slowed down the class. It was obvious that Bob knows his stuff expressed his passion for all things photography. I also found that he was very patient with all of the students even when the same question was asked multiple times I can?t wait to see what Bob has for his follow up classes. It was great fun.

So glad i found this event and attended - thoroughly enjoyed. Scot was awesome in providing a relaxed, well paced morning. Taught me great tips on how to use my "real" camera, super patient, personable, helpful and readily available for questions. He explained the use of my camera, lighting, composition in a clear and concise manner that even I understood. Will do more of these events!! Thanks Scot for a great way to start the day!!

Me and my son took the class. It was very insightful, with a lot of hands on exercises at the right level. Since I had some background on basic photography and my son did not, my feel is that we ended at the same level of skills at the end since we were shooting in Manual mode and for me it was a first.
