ABOUT CHARLESTON
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 across the region.

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 one 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 Charleston Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.



We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
* Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.

It was exactly what I wanted. I was given strategies, techniques and hands on assistance with the art of taking street photography. She was very flexible and adapted to what we wanted to do, but was very professional.

It was very good. Appreciate the 2x rescheduling that had to be done. Seamless and all rebooked for the boat. Touring the island was easy thanks to Stephanie who knew her way round. Good talks with her about photography in general

Stephanie Smith is an excellent instructor. She taught me basic things like ISO and aperture and techniques in a very understandable manner. I will definitely take more classes to learn more and take better pictures.

Because it was a small group, we were able to cover targeted solutions to the challenges that I had been dealing with in regards to lighting situations.

INSTRUCTORS
Peyton Smith
Hello, my name is Peyton and I would consider myself a vivacious, professional photographer who specializes in nature and event photography. I discovered my love for capturing spectacular moments in a high school elective class. I spent a semester abroad traveling and exploring the cities and indigenous cultures of Australia, and from that experience gained a passion for traveling, meeting new people and creating new ideas. I graduated from Appalachian State University in the mountains of North Carolina where I majored in Anthropology and Photography. I am excited to bring my unique eye and talent to the Lowcountry where I hope to expand my knowledge and continue seeking new adventures.
