We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Dallas. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

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!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

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.

It was fun. I had never been to the TX Discovery Gardens before. Looking forward to going back. Michael was knowledgeable about cameras and lenses and helped us with our settings. Letting those who did not have a macro lens try his lens out. I enjoyed meeting him and the other photographers.

The event was very good. Michael trained me on all my questions plus so much more. And he took special attention to us who needed some extra help with LR. Michael was very tentative especially to the wide range of participants experience. He was well prepared for the event. Michael showed his sincere focus on us and made sure we all had a clear understanding of the issues and questions we had.

Michael was great in taking the tune to show us technique. I have attended other photography sessions before but this really gave me a chance to ask questions and practice hands on. I would definitely attend other classes and recommend this to others who are interested in photography.

Michael is very technical knowledge, a lot of question answered. In addition, I like his approach to help student understand & improve the "story telling" skills - " How are you going to capture this?"..."You should do this, and here is the reasons" ...."This is my capture....your capture needs....etc"....Looking for next session with him

It was very helpful to me and I learned a couple of things I plan to try out in the future. Chris did a great job and I will be signing up for future meetups when I can. I like that he asked for input on possible future meetups.
