Upcoming Events

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 Augusta.

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

    I really enjoyed the class Ryan was such a great teacher.
    Awesome job!
    Steve says...very informative and well delivered. I learned a lot about my camera and taking manual photos. It was hard to remain standing for the entire class time, though.
    Steve and Kay Timmerman

    It helped me understand my camera a little better and I learned some new things also. It was really helpful :)
    Brett was AWESOME! Had specific suggestions as well as general observations and recommendations. A great workshop/meetup leader.
    Great instructor!

    This event was great I learned so much about how to use the manual settings, Brent explained everything so well and answered any questions I had. He made you feel comfortable and made you want to get involved. Once again, a great event. Thank you.
    Brent was a fantastic instructor. He is knowledgable and passionate about photohraphy. He answered all questions without ever making us feel like we asked a dumb question. The River Walk was beautiful, I had never been there before. I am now not afraid of manual mode.
    Ryan Phillips
    I'm a local photographer in Augusta, Georgia that loves wildlife and nature. I appreciate all genres of photography and try to get out with my camera as much as I possibly can. I love waking up early before the rest of the world is up to get beautiful sunrise photos. I also love meeting new people and being part of the Augusta photography community!

    Ryan Phillips is available for private bookings

    Available mostly on Sundays. Maybe Saturdays if schedule permits.

    Title or Location: Folly Beach, SC
    This was one of those shots where you'd rather be lucky than good. I wanted a silhouette of the sea oats at sunrise, and when I went to review the photos later noticed I had captured this bug landing on one of the fronds.

    Title or Location: Edisto Beach, SC
    Probably not the best picture I've ever taken, but definitely one of my favorites. I was brand new to photography and enjoying my cameras so much I was just dying for something interesting to happen around me that I could capture and document. I was walking along the beach in Edisto with my family in October. It was cold and there was almost nobody on the beach except us. Out of nowhere, we heard a lot of commotion a little ways down the beach and were surprised to find this man had caught a li

    Title or Location: Columbus, GA
    I was walking up and down the Columbus, GA Riverwalk along the Chattahoochee River and saw a pair of red-shouldered hawks perched together. One eventually flew away to another branch, turned around and glided down past me.

    Title or Location: VIVID Sydney - Sydney Harbour
    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.

    Title or Location: Spirit of Saint Louis Air Show and Stem Expo
    Photograph taken with Olympus OM-1 and Olympus 100-400mm Lens (100mm 1/1250 @ f/11). No real interesting story here. Just like to shoot the air shows when I can. Takes me back to my days in the Navy and seeing the jets coming and going from Hickam AFB when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor NSY&IMF and would shoot a round of golf at Hickam AFB's Mamala Bay golf course after working on the submarines. A couple of the holes on that course are near the runway for the base. The surprise sound of a

    Title or Location: Lost Dutchman Park
    This is a focus blend of 2 photos- 1 for the fence and the other for the rest of the photo. It was taken with a Sony A7RIV camera on a Sony 35mm GM lens at F1.8, ISO 2000, 15". The Superstion Mountains were named Monte Superstition by Spanish conquistadors who arrived in the 1540s. Greedy for gold, they tried to get local Apaches to show them where it was however, believing the area was home to the God of Thunder, they refused for fear of angering him. Apaches believe there's a hole to the
