Winter Landscape - Peebles Island State Park - 9am - 2
We're going to explore a few ways to "see" what's right in front of us, what's ahead of us, and what's at the end of our horizons.
We're going to shoot from vantage points on the island and surrounding area to learn about framing dramatic landscape photos, composition, and the importance of being present in the environment thinking about the shot.

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 Albany.

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.

Buying Gear - Troy, NY - 9 am - 2 hours
Every January the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) debuts new photography gear and dazzles the masses with the newest, and best to arrive in stores in the coming months. As the weather (hopefully) begins to break for us and folks start getting out more to take pictures, now is a good time to look at gear, and navigate what's needed, what may not, and what separates the tools from the toys. This class is designed to help new Photogs navigate the market a little. Great for those new photogs looking to buy their first kits or upgrade.

It was fabulous. Instructor was professional but approachable, knew his stuff, and easily changed gears to give info to all of us at very different levels of knowledge as well as very different cameras. Great ideas and challenges presented. Perfect amount of loose structure but organized ideas.
