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 Detroit.

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

This was a great class!!! Doug was very informative. I like how he explained things to us and even gave us a chart to follow to help us gain better understanding of the concept of exposure.

It took me a bit to grasp the challenge of reflection in photography but once I did I enjoyed it very much. Instructor Lauren was helpful, patient and so kind to everyone. Nice to be with a great group of like minded people. I even watched and learned from them too. I will never walk pass a window reflection the same again. Thank you!

I loved this event. Lauren G is a wonderful instructor. I learned much about manual mode on my camera. Where to start, how to make adjustments. She had us try many different challenges to learn how and what to change on our camera. Belle Isle is a beautiful park too. Enjoyed it very much.

I loved it. It was my first class with DPG and it was a great experience, Lauren G was wonderfully patient with the whole group and it was fun learning something new. She got me to think outside of the box and more creative. I will recommend this to others.
