ABOUT BUFFALO
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
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 Buffalo.

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 one 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 Buffalo Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.


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

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.
