Upcoming Events

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 Rochester .

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

    Great meet up! Weather was great. Don is a lot of fun!
    A great morning walk looking through my lens. Dan was knowledgeable and accommodating.
    Despite it being an overcast day, Don was still happy to walk thru the park and share his knowledge with me! Learned a few things and am looking forward to another class. Thanks!

    Madi did a great job. I learned a lot and I feel so much more confident with my camera now
    This class was awesome! Stephen is enthusiastic, passionate about art and creating portraits that tell a story. I feel inspired to pick up my camera again and am so appreciative.
    Was a good refresher for me. Location is kind of uncomfortable as you can get distracted by customers.

    Very informative for a first time learning about a camera

    Title or Location: Durand Eastman Park- Killdeer pair
    This photo was taken at the parking lot by Camp Eastman in Durand park. My mother and I had gone the day on a walk and seen a Killdeer by one of the post, the bird seemed as if she was hurt, so we had left. The next day my mother asked if we can go back to check on it and asked me to bring my camera, glad it did. We saw that the bird was nesting and had three eggs by the post, we also saw it's partner was nearby and would come to swap places in defending the nest while the female goes out to eat

    Title or Location: Observation Deck at Niagara Falls
    I visited the observation deck for the first time at Niagara Falls and wanted to capture the maid of the mist. I was able to snap a photo as the boat was traveling right towards the misty area.

    Title or Location: Spring Lake Park, East Rochester, NY
    Sometimes when I need some perspective I seek out a park or take a drive somewhere I've never been. I find that just walking alone and focusing on the beauty that's around me helps me clear my mind and often that's when I take the best photos.

    Title or Location: Niagara Falls
    I took this at Three Sisters Island in Niagara Falls and saw numerous birds flying. I was able to capture this bird while taking many shots at once. I changed the picture to black and white and tweaked the lighting, clarity and texture.

    Title or Location: Vroom Rd. Ogden/ Spencerport area.
    I took this photo at 5:47pm. I knew the sunset would be amazing and I couldn?t get a good shot from where I was. So I took a chance and made the right hand turn onto Vroom rd. Pulled over to the side of a farmers field and took a couple of shots.

This is one of many shots I took while there, This is a blue hour blend where I took one photo right after sunset and another photo from the same spot hours later to capture the night sky then blended the 2 together. Thanks for looking!

    Title or Location: Sunny Sands, Folkestone
    This morning was not very promising, but still I was determined to get out and take pictures! Headed to Sunny Sands and found these two rocks in the sand that caught my interest. The tide was rising and the sun started glowing in the sky! "Perfect moment", and the a wave caught me by surprise and made my feet soaking wet! Apparently sign of good luck, and maybe so, it's one of my best images and was definitely worth it!

    Title or Location: McGee Creek, eastern Sierra Nevada
    I had been out of photography for a few years, and was just getting back into it when my brother and I took a trip to the eastern Sierra for fall colors in October 2017. We had been out all day when we returned to McGee Creek during the late afternoon. A had set up my camera and tripod to get a long exposure shot of leaves on a rock in the creek, when I looked to my right and saw another great image. I realized that my "eye" had returned, and I was exhilarated! Rock with aspen leaf, McGee Cr

    Title or Location: Uxbridge, Ontario
    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?
