Workshops and Courses

The best way to improve your photography is to actually go out and make pictures.

This is not always easy and sometimes we all suffer from a lack of inspiration and motivation. A great way to give yourself a kick start is to attend a class or a workshop.

We’ve been very lucky in the Society to have been visited by many professional photographers who have been willing to share their passions and experience with us. A  number of our past and upcoming speakers will be leading classes and workshops over the next few months so take a look!
