ABOUT CANTERBURY
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 around Canterbury.

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 Canterbury Photography Facebook Group here 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.

REVIEWS
Eleanor was extremely helpful going through the settings for the camera so that we would achieve our sunset shots. She suggested composition advice and which angels would work best. A very enjoyable workshop. Many thanks to Eleanor who is an excellent tutor, I hope to attend more workshops.

INSTRUCTORS
Mabel Mccormick
Mabel is a photographer based in Kent, who mastered her craft at Edinburgh University and is now beginning her career as a Freelance Photographer. Her love at the moment lies with bringing confidence to those who dislike having their photograph taken, and showing them just how great they can look in front of a lens. She also loves practicing street photography, using her camera to capture the uniqueness and quirks of a new environment she has explored. Mabel loves to use photography as a form of expression, as is excited to share what she has learned in the hope of inspiring others to pursue their own photography journey.
