We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Palm Bay. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

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!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

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.

Very hands on and very in-deoth knowledge of cameras and photography. Joe worked with all our different cameras and found the settings needed the day. I got some excellent pics that I will post.

Thanks for asking. I would love to give you my feedback on our meetup. I really liked just getting together with like minded people, and wasn't too concerned with the details. I know this may have been the first organized meetup for this group, so I wasn't expecting much. It can be a challenge to get different people with different camera types together and up to speed.

I think it was a good event for beginners. The instructor was wonderful and knowledgeable. My only issue was that my confirmation email and the Facebook event reflected two different meetup times. Thankfully, I was able to contact the instructor and make it to the meetup.
