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 around Grand Rapids.

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 Grand Rapids Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

Jacob, and two "novices" covered a lot of territory and had a multitude of photo ops, and chances for "stretching". I took 100 photos, and wished I'd taken more.Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to connect with.

Jake is a photographer that has been gathering images of all kinds for nearly 6 years. With a focus on variety, his work involves many different disciplines of the craft. However, you’d most likely find him in out in the local parks looking for interesting macro shots of bugs and other critters. Additionally, as a Grand Rapids Native, you can be sure he’s got his finger on the pulse of all the best locations and events around the city to help take your photography to the next level.
