Upcoming Events

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 in 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 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 Knoxville Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    Title or Location: Bodie Lighthouse, Nags Head, NC
    On a quick get-a-way with my wife to the Outer Banks 2 weeks ago. Even though the day had been cloudy, my wife convinced me that we should go ahead and try to get a night shot of Bodie Lighthouse. No one was there at 10pm when after only a few shots, the skies opened up and was perfectly clear. The trick was to time the 20 second exposure with the timing of the lighthouse light and not for it to be overexposed. No AI in the edit. Fixed contrast and white balance. Even from the back of the cam

    Title or Location: Bright's Zoo, Limestone, TN
    I took this photo on August 31, 2023, on the morning of her 1 month birthday. She was staying mostly in the shade but finally came out. The enclosure has an offset wire mesh which prevents auto-focus cameras such as cell phones from getting a good shot. I got close to the fence and manually focused My Canon R with a 100-400mm lens to blur the fence out, ISO 500 260mm f 5.6 1/800 sec. Cropped and edited in Adobe LRC dehaze and denoised. This was my first visit to Bright's Zoo, which is in Gree

    Title or Location: In the night sky
    This is the Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888) which rises in the North-east skies at night around now. It'll be visible for another 3-4 months. It's hard to see it with the naked eye in a telescope but in very dark skies it can be seen. It's what is known as an emission nebula meaning it emits light. In this case the majority of the light is among two wavelengths: Hydrogen alpha (a very red, near infrared light) and Oxygen III (a bluish-green light). It takes a long exposure to get enough light to show

    Title or Location: Fort Smith, Arkansas
    Photo was taken at a wet lands outside of Fort Smith, Arkansas as an early morning fog was being burned off by the morning sun. The tree that the heron is perched on was surrounded by water allowing me only one angle. Luckly the fog was masking the sun.

    Title or Location: West Knoxville
    Where I lived I had a very large holly tree (around 15-20 feet tall) that would periodically produce a great many berries. Every 2-3 years a swarm of cedar waxwings and other birds would visit my yard and eat the berries. At one time I counted well over 200 birds in my maple tree just waiting for their chance to get to the tree and over 100 birds at the tree. It was always such a sight and a treat to see.

Thought I would try a little creative work with them, using Adobe Photo Elements 2023, plastic wrap. You either like photo art or you don't, I love looking at other people's work, there's a lot of creative people out there.

    Title or Location: Bauld Hill, Stanwell Park
    I was on my way home when I saw the paragliders hovering ahead. So even though I thought I would try to get a few photos of them. The storm was getting closer & we all thought we would get wet, but just before it hit, it threw out a quick burst of colour. Sometimes it?s all about timing. iPhone 12 Pro Max & Snapseed.
