ABOUT GEELONG
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 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 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 Geelong Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Everyone needs a mentor when embarking on a new field. Karen is not only gifted with imparting her photography knowledge but she is gifted with building a genuine rapport with her students embedding a level of ease & trust. Karen encourages questions & offers easily digestible responses & many tips. I have thus far, attended two meet-ups & have greatly benefited. I look forward to more meet-ups.
