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 Halifax.

  • 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 Halifax Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    The training was excellent. I learned a lot, and Carlos clarified a lot of questions I had about what the different settings in Lightroom do. I would take more of these types of courses.
    I learned a lot about the interrelationship between light and shutter speed, aperture and ISO, all working in manual. I knew some of this in theory, but the hands-on made it real in practice. I'd recommend it for anyone wanting to break away from using the P or automatic mode on their camera.
    I thought it was a great class and am looking forward to future ones with Carlos.

    Loved it?more please! James did a great job of putting us at ease with the up close environment between photographer and model. He also made sure to get us in various situations that we will encounter or should look for such as framing, low light, back light etc.
    Learned a lot from this event. James was very hands on and even took time to look at my personal camera and helped me get to know it better. The hands-on exercises also helped understand the settings and how it affects the photos. Overall great experience!
    This was an excellent class. The instructor James was excellent, personable and was able to teach us a better understand on the basics , details about our equipment and our goals. I felt like I walked away from the class feeling like a real photographer and much more self confident

    Very fast exciting event. It was my first time shooting a sporting event, and the advice of the teacher were great!
    Was well planned out. Had a lot of fun shooting in a new environment
    Great event.

    I enjoyed the event. I have never really delved into street photography and this was an informative way to try and get started. The teacher was informative and helped guide me to see a lot of shots I wouldn't have previously thought of.
    it was awesome, I learned so much!
    I really enjoyed this photo session. It was my first time shooting in studio, and John was really good at explaining everything such as light, light metering and backdrops... The models were also great to work with. The equipment used, lights, backdrops, etc... was first grade professional too.

    It was my birthday so we visited the park for fun and it was spring so there were lots of plants coming back to life after winter. And on that day the temp was 23 degrees which is rare in Nova scotia. So i decided to capture this shot against the sun to show how the life is coming back in the presence of sun. Sun = Life.

    This image was shot at Halls Harbour and our plan was to have it appear as if the model (Christina Shaw) was standing on water. She is actually standing on a wooden barstool. The timing was a bit off between the tide coming in and the sun setting. By the time everything lined up the water was up to Christina's knees. Just goes to show when things do not work as planned that you can still get a good image and share a lot of laughs in the process.By the time we were done I had to wade out

    This is a focus stack of 15 images. I ended up using a pretty heavy crop to make the result larger than life. Using a Canon RP and RF100mm lens. ISO was 100 1/125th of a second exposure, and each image was at f3.2

    Title or Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having

    A friend of mine discovered this bald eagle nest just north of Lititz. I've been keeping an eye on it for a decent shot. This adult has been keeping guard of its juveniles for some time now. I finally saw the adult sitting just to the right of the nest. I am a very new and amateur photographer and still very much learning. I travel quite a bit and enjoy shooting the places I visit but also love wildlife photography. I really didn't process much other than bring up some of the exposure to g

    Title or Location: Bempton Cliffs. Unsociable puffin
    Me and my partner spent the day at Bempton cliffs and this was the only lone puffin that had it back to the sea, He/she was clearly not wanting to socialise with other birds. Possibly in a bad mood. This is why this particular puffing grabbed my attention.
