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 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 Palm Bay Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

Keep 6 feet away from others.

I learned a ton about photography today. The site was excellent for learning with lots of options (birds, boats, water, people, trees, buildings?!) for subjects. The teacher was excellent and handled our various questions with ease and he clearly is an expert in the art of photography. I will continue to learn and the handouts will be a very useful reminder of what was taught.

Joe provided usable and understandable information in his very friendly way. I learned more about the “colors” of black and white photography. The smaller size class allowed for group discussion and positive interaction between us and Joe. I really enjoyed this type of format where we discussed the goal, walked somewhat independently and then met backup to discuss our findings and receive a critique on how to sharpen our eye and settings! Joe has so much experience to share.

INSTRUCTORS
Phil Moore
Phil is a recent photography enthusiast transitioned professional. He has fully delved into what was a longtime bucket list hobby to take up. When COVID changed the work environment this opened up his ability to take up photography full time. Absorbing as much info and classes as he could for the past 2 years and currently, he has put into practice all of his knowledge and continues to learn and enjoy taking photos on a daily basis. Exploring different genres, from landscape to wildlife to product to architecture, he drew an attraction to nature and the outdoors. Product and real estate photography help pay the bills with his company Blue beetle productions, but also allows to fine tune lighting and flash photography.
