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 in Mackay .

  • 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 Mackay Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    I really enjoyed it! Very informative. Marty is very generous with his time and in sharing his knowledge. The small group size allowed us all to benefit from individual help. Loved the relaxed vibe and beautiful location.

    Marty is great. He explains everything so I can understand it easily, and will also answer any other questions I have about other photos I wish to be taking. It is a great course to do to learn more about your camera and how to make the most of taking different shots. they are nice small groups which is great.

    I really enjoyed the afternoon. I could ask the questions I needed information about and get constructive feedback on shots taken throughout the session. The venue selected provided variety regarding photo opportunities and the group was small which made the experience even more enjoyable. Thank you, Marty.

    Excellent! Class was so relaxed. I did not feel lost or flustered. Marty's explained everything so well, I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. I went straight home and played with different settings in the backyard. Have already booked for the next course. Highly Recommend

    I took this photo on a late afternoon walk at the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Mackay. The colours as the sun was setting were just stunning, the water and the birds just made the perfect image, and being able to use the posts were a bonus. It was just lovely and peaceful &129655

    Title or Location: Montforts Beach
    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them

    There?s sunset and there?s sunset like this! As if Mother Nature decided that the colours were not enough and returned with these extraordinary after colours!I was a bit wavering that afternoon looking at those thick clouds building up but then a gap in those clouds made for a colour burst producing a sunset that has by far been one of the best in this year I have seen!
