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 Knoxville.
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!

Cameras, their functions and all their accessories can be overwhelming if you’re not already familiar with them. Discover how to use your camera to capture moments, events, and people in your everyday life. The class will cover a range of technical aspects, including aperture, shutter speed and ISO. You’ll also cover focal length and lenses, lighting and correct exposure.

This meetup is perfect for you!
Bring your camera and portrait lens and let's all practice on each other as well as getting some images to use for ourselves. The instructor will be able to help you pose, use correct settings, and most flattering light if needed.
