ABOUT AUGUSTA

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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Title or Location: Mayors Pond
    Took this photo in the early morning hours at Mayors Pond near Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. The ground was softer, and much colder, than expected. My feet were wet. My tripod was in a few inches of water. The shot made it worth it.

    Title or Location: Brick Pond Park, North Augusta
    This photo was taken on Tuesday, February 13, as I took my usual daily stroll around the Brick Pond Park. I heard the Osprey and it took a bit to finally locate it. It was high up in a tree behind the solar panel bank. I missed watching it dive for the fish but was able to watch it peck away at it. The fish would start to slip off the branch and it would use it's talons to pull it back up as it took another bite. It was almost like it was keeping a watchful eye around it as to ensure nobody

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    Title or Location: Three Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Swansea
    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
