ABOUT BOURNEMOUTH
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 Bournemouth Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.



Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions
We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 2 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.

Very enjoyable morning with a great teacher. Instructions were very clear, the 3 challenges taught different skills and the informal approach was great for building confidence.

Attila is very knowledgeable and obviously a skilled photographer. He was helpful and engaged with all of us, helping with settings and creativity even though several of us were freezing! The weather was not Attila's fault obviously and with a warmer evening it would have been much more relaxed. I picked up some good tips and new techniques which I shall be using going forward.

INSTRUCTORS
Jamie Torrance
As a professional commercial photographer Jamie's been making images on both sides of the Atlantic for the last 10 years. But his love of making photos came from being a 3 year old playing with his grandad's old rangefinder bellows camera. Whilst he has updated his gear, his excitement about images hasn't dwindled and his amiable and approachable manner makes for a relaxed and inclusive learning experience. When he's not tackling commercial gigs he's still out there taking photographs as part of his love of fine art, documentary and landscape projects.
