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 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 Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    When the pandemic hit, I found myself in an awful place. The loss of a loved one before the world shut down sent me spinning. I didn't know how to make it stop. Until one day I decided to take a walk around the block. I deemed that walk "not completely horrible." And then the next day I saw my camera lying there unused and thought "maybe this will make the walk more interesting." And so I started walking around my neighborhood and saw with new eyes for the first time, the vibrating energy of my neighborhood. It was then that I said to myself "I bet there are some nice spots to take pictures in this city." And that's what I did, from Harlem to Central Park, to Times Square and the Whitney to Prospect Park to the Brooklyn Museum to Astoria Park and the NYC ferries rediscovered my home town and unexpectedly found relief from grief.
    One day as I was walking around my neighborhood, a woman stuck her head out of her restaurant and asked "are you a professional photographer?" I paused, thought about it for a second and answered "Well, yes."
