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 Gainesville.

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

    Very knowledgeable and had the ability to make the functions of your camera easy to understand.
    Great class! Lots of good diagrams and the flow of the info was super! I learned a lot and had a fun time!
    The event was a huge success. Katrine was the best person to lead this adventure. She had many tips and tricks about street photography. I felt at ease following her and taking pictures of total strangers, something that I thought I would never dare to do before meeting her. I'm looking forward to getting together again in the future.

    Excellent event. My wife and I learned a lot from the instructor. The instructor is very knowledgeable on all types of cameras. The hands on approach to this event was ideal. Plan to attend future events.

    Seeing these huge container cranes at sunset and sunrise they look like sentinels guarding the port. Working on the Mississippi River for the passed few weeks is just one more adventure in my life. Thank you for enjoying my work.

    I?ve been experimenting with ICM (intentional camera movement) photos recently & I often love the soft, almost dream-like quality of the images. This shot was taken at sunset at Sweetwater Wetlands Park, Gainesville FL, right up the road from my house. I chose a 1 second exposure & used a smooth vertical move upward, with only light edits in Snapseed.

    I was up early for sunrise at the park, looking for the usual show-stopping cranes, herons, egrets, and very active gators. But then this common blackbird caught my eye, singing his heart out in that very early light. It was as though he had been waiting for it all along, while balancing precariously in those tall weeds. To me it was a beautiful moment!

    Horses have always inspired me. In an instant you can see the true emotion on their face. I just feel blessed enough to be able to capture it and share it with everyone.

    Title or Location: Montforts Beach
    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them

    There?s sunset and there?s sunset like this! As if Mother Nature decided that the colours were not enough and returned with these extraordinary after colours!I was a bit wavering that afternoon looking at those thick clouds building up but then a gap in those clouds made for a colour burst producing a sunset that has by far been one of the best in this year I have seen!
