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 North Shore Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.



We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 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; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

I'm a beginner and this was my first event with the group. I enjoyed the 2 hours - Swain Gardens is a lovely setting with plenty of opportunities to take nature photos. The expert, Rob Marfleet, was informative, friendly and always willing to give suggestions and answer questions.

INSTRUCTORS
Grace Clinton
Grace has been in the photography industry for 4 years now, starting off in event work and was even on the media team for the Melbourne International Three Day Event at the age of 16. She's now moved onto more portrait work and takes headshots for actors and models. Grace strongly believes in creating beautiful imagery using the simple equipment, because when we are limited with tools that's when our creativity comes out the strongest. She swears by the nifty fifty lens and considers it essential for every portrait photography shoot.
Rob Marfleet
Rob has been photographing things for a little over a decade. Not satisfied with being self taught in electronics, computer programming, embedded systems development and 3d modelling, he added photography to the list and in the last few years has concentrated intensely on studio product photography, developing new processes and workflows in high key photography. He has cultivated a respectable amount of knowledge in the technical areas of photography and delights in making the more intimidating aspects more approachable and digestible.
