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 Washington DC.

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 Washington DC 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.

INSTRUCTORS
Yvette Mitchell
The goal of her photography is to use viewfinder to capture each individual and reveal his or her everyday beauty. For her, pictures are more than just memories. They are life in action, life frozen in time. As her spirit leads her into a realm of reality and abstraction, she observes how wonderfully and naturally the two blend, mold, and enhance one another. She has always been amazed by the way people perceive the seemingly ordinary aspects of life. In those ordinary times, she has learned to use an artistic eye and quick mind to transform the everyday into the extraordinary. She likes to guide viewers to recognizing a subject's mostly-missed essence. Nothing in life is a simple as it appears, so she strives to find the innermost beauty, enhance it and reintroduce it to the world.
