We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Sydney. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Complete beginner? We recommend starting with the Photography for Beginners Class, which is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor.

Looking to learn more? Come along to the group sessions, which are more casual and informal than other workshops, and with more time to take photos and put your new skills into practice.

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!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

Join the Sydney Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session and to take part in our free, fortnightly competitions!

First time with Zac leading the group, he did a great job and he assistant. They both where interacting with the group, all morning. We meant 15 minutes before it finished and reviewed the photos we took with Zac, he was super friendly and helpful.

It's good to have real time feedback from instructors during the session, and also meeting other members of the group and exchange experiences at photography.

Zac Alviz was a good instructor. I liked that he set specific challenges and spent time with each of us to review some of our shots.

Zac, our photography host, was excellent. He set us a couple of challenges and gave us some extremely helpful tips. He gave us the chance for a brief discussion and share our best work with the group halfway through the event and again at the very end. While this event is not meant to be a lesson, we do want to come away from these events having learned something new, either from the host or each other, that will ultimately make us better photographers. Zac definitely provided the energy & space for that opportunity, despite the intense heat of the day.

Was a great inspirational 2 hours... Zac Alviz was an excellent teacher/adviser. Will be doing a session again, but hopefully NOT in that sort of heat!

It was my first one and I have no idea what I am doing... so I can't wait to do the beginners and read more in understanding it all. I needed to leave so didn't get to finish going around. But I really enjoyed it.
