Saturday 16 March
Battery Point, Hobart, Tasmania - 10am - 2 Hours
Brett Meikle
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

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 Hobart.

  • 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.

  • REVIEWS
    This was a great event. It gave me a basic understanding of my camera settings so that I can start to play around with my camera with a bit of an idea of what I need to be doing! Very worthwhile for anyone who has bought a camera and is confused about all the different terminology. Susie was also very down to earth and explained things in a way that was practical and easy to understand.

    Title or Location: Cornelian Bay, Hobart
    I've always loved the way Hobart lights up for various events, and being a member of the LTBTQIA community myself, having the bridge lit up for this year's Tas Pride stood out particularly. I had taken a photo from this position last year during Dark Mofo when the bridge was lit up red, and decided then that it was probably one of my favourite angles of the bridge, so on this night I went out and took several photos from various positions. When I arrived at Cornelian Bay, there was a young

    Surfing through this region for many years has given me many memorable moments, this day was one of those days. The morning stormy clouds and off shore windy conditions allowed me to surf and take photos which is very rare, especially being so passionate about both activities. Its hard to enjoy both when the surf is good.I had decided to go for a walk around a little cove I don't visit that much and was gifted with this sight straight away.

    Title or Location: Opossum Bay
    One day, I took a spontaneous 50-minute drive to Opossum Bay near Hobart, Tasmania, hoping to capture a beautiful sunset. It's often tough to find a good spot around Hobart because of the surrounding mountains, but this time, I got lucky.After waiting for about 3-4 hours, the sun began to set, painting the sky in warm colors. I usually prefer making videos, but there's something special about freezing a moment in a photo. Looking at the picture later gave me a surreal feeling.This experi

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    Title or Location: Halstead Kansas, outside my house
    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    Title or Location: Three Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Swansea
    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
