We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in San Antonio .

  • 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.

    I liked the informal setting because there is so much to learn and had it been a structured class like setting, I would have been overwhelmed. Malika was helpful and patient. I?m glad there were only 2 of us that attended because we could really get individual, non rushed attention.
    Malika was super knowledgeable and patient with me as I am a complete novice with a camera. I would highly recommend her, she is so sweet & personable.

    I was sitting on our backyard picnic table. It was May 5, 2024 close to noon. I do this daily so that I can try different settings on my Canon EOS 80D. I'm very new to photography. We live in a rural area that's thriving with wildlife. I was fortunate enough to get this pic as this black vulture flew from the oak tree onto our fence. My settings were ISO5000 / 300mm / 0ev / ?5.6 / 1/1600s. Lens I used was EF70-300mm ?4-5.6 IS USM. I used Light Room to crop and add my name.

    With the camera in hand utilizing the 70-200 2.8 I carefully framed the shot, ensuring that the fence served as a leading line, guiding the viewer?s gaze through the composition.I experimented with angles, searching for the perfect perspective to capture the enchanting beauty of these vibrant blooms.

    Title or Location: Night-time at Portland Bill lighthouse
    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!

    A photographer friend visits his parents in Alaska every year and upon his return home he always brings me salmon steaks that his family catch as part of their food provisions. This was my dinner and will say that this dinner was nothing short of amazing!

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
