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 Lancaster.

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 Lancaster 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 enjoyed this event. I learned about aperture and shutter speed as we practiced. I got some new good tips and ideas how to manage them.

Hi, I’m Michael and I`m a Professional Photographer based in Preston, Lancashire. Originally from Bristol, I’ve also lived in Sunderland and eventually Glasgow where the whole creative thing took me up to Glasgow School of Art to study Fine Art. After a number of years mainly working as an artist my love of the camera took me in a slightly different direction but I still paint every week and also have a few exhibitions planned for 20 / 21. I enjoy the variety of work as a photographer and have been fortunate to travel all over the UK (and abroad) photographing a variety of interesting places and people. I genuinely care about my work as it is my passion and I hope you can see this in my work.
