ABOUT WIRRAL
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 Wirral.

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 Wirral 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 2 metres 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.

An a real beginner I found it very useful - not just learning about landscapes/composition, but the basics of photography itself. It was very relaxed with lots of 1:1 guidance and opportunity to ask questions

What an amazing few hours, Jonathan's knowledge base is awesome and he is so approachable. Its nice that when you ask a basic question, he is very attentive and offers reactive advice, making the whole experience informative and fun. Back again on the next sessions, when there hosted.

Hello and welcome, my name is Jonathan Cooper, I am a freelance commercial photographer and have been working for over twenty years in the photographic industry. My experience in the commercial photography genre is wide and varied from product shots, interiors, headshots and food.I am currently working with the care industry and local councils on their latest advertising recruitment campaigns. My real passion is in street and humanist photography and landscape,with which I want to share and inspire you.Over the years I have had four exhibitions, two of street photography and two of landscape using B&W infrared film.I was thrilled at the turn out and how well received my work was! I am based in West Kirby Wirral and hope to be taking most of my instructor classes in this location as it has everything in one place for a great shoot. Look forward to seeing you, never stop taking pictures.
