ABOUT STATEN
ISLAND
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 Staten Island.

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 Staten Island Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

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

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

It was great. Alex was knowledgeable and got me on the right path. Alex took time with all of us and covered the topics I was most interested in and I came away from the instruction better than when it started. Great meeting other members of the group as well

Alex was informative and made the class enjoyable. I will probably take another one of the classes offered. I was happy the class was only 3 of us.

Kemar was patient and generous with his knowledge. He took his time making sure we understood our camera. He was eager to see the pictures we took and gave us suggestions on how to best fix it even though he had already done that. Looking forward to having another class with this young man.

It is one thing to know something BUT another to teach it, KEMAR was an excellent teacher, He was able to convey the basic art of photography in it’s simplest form for me to understand it, he challenged me and the class to capture a feeling, Excellent Instructor
