A general interest group for photography enthusiasts to share their skills, knowledge and passion for taking photographs.
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for adults aged 18+ years. It is open to improvers and people with a general interest in photography who wish to share that with others. It is ideally suited to people who have completed mac’s Exposure I & II Digital Photography courses.
This course is probably more suited to people with DSLR or Bridge cameras. If you have a basic compact point and shoot camera but are thinking of upgrading then we do have a limited number of Digital SLR’s that can be borrowed during the class.
The course is accessible for people with disabilities who are able to use a camera and a computer. . The room is wheelchair accessible and a carer or support worker may assist. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
What will you learn on this course?
This course is a weekly opportunity for anyone with a general interest in photography to get together with other enthusiasts in the company of our Artist Tutor Kate Green.
It’s a flexible, general interest group that might motivate you to pick up your camera a little bit more and inspire new ideas, skills, approaches and creativity. If you enjoy working on your own photography projects, discussing or sharing your work and thoughts, looking at other photographers work, creating photo books and developing you knowledge and skills along the way then this group is for you. The tutor will be on hand to facilitate group sharing and learning rather than it being a tutor led session.
The course could also include visits out within the local area or into the city to suit participant’s interests in architectural, urban or street photography.
The course is based in mac’s media studio which has Apple mac computers. These can be used for designing photo books and post-production.
This course is ideal for students that have completed introductory courses such as mac’s Exposure I & II, people who know their way around their camera but still want to enjoy the social aspect and creative energy of being part of a group with shared interests.
On completion of this course you will have enjoyed sharing your enthusiasm for photography with others and you should feel inspired to be creative with your camera and want to explore your own capabilities further.
Do you need to bring anything?
Bring along your camera, a tripod if you have one and appropriate clothing for going outside.
You can bring your own laptops or tablets if you wish but please remember any cables you might need to connect your camera to your device. It is also useful if you bring a copy of your camera manual.
Are there any additional costs?
There are no additional costs.

Thank you so much for inspiring me through your photography classes at the MAC. You have such a lot of wonderful qualities – empathy, passion, creativity, warmth, humour, kindness. You have really helped me to develop my photography skills, both technically and creatively, over the last few months, and I am really grateful for that.
