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 Ocala.

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

    It was great. Small class a plus because you got the individual attention you needed. Mike was very knowledgeable.
    This was an easy walking photo field trip with a knowledgeable leader. Kaley knew where to look for birds that live in the park, and she knew the sections that attract the birds. I didn't feel I was being managed but rather that I had found a kindred spirit in photography.
    Kaley was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. When I arrived I new very little about my cannon T7 once the class was completed I was able to get clear detailed pictures I highly recommend her class see you at the next one

    Title or Location: Pompeii, Italy circa 2019.
    Such an awe inspiring place. There were a million people there so this was no paid shoot. I had to be patient, just after sunrise. I had to edit out all tiles with numbers and information on all brick walls which helps them with the reclaiming and restoring the site. It was way too distracting. I just loved the colors that I saw and being able to get Mt. Vesuvius in the back was money. Shot with Nikon Z7 ISO 100 50mm F/10 1/200th sec.This is what you sent me.Ocala Photography GroupAdminT

    Taken just after sunrise. The blue from the sky and water really made the colors of the trees stand out. I love the beautiful reflection off the water and the stillness of the lake.Taken with my Cannon Rebel t3. Lens was Quantaray for Cannon in macro.Only editing done was an auto light adjustment.

    Abandoned subway viaduct along the river in Rochester NY. Frequented by homeless, drug users and talented graffiti artists who paint their stories on the walls. A curious mix of used needles and artist talent.

    Title or Location: Crane Park, Whitton.
    Taken with Nikon D7500 with 300mm Nikkor lens. Two male Kingfishers possibly adult male and offspring sitting low by the River Crane. Light was low so had to use a high ISO. Because of this the image had to be denoised . It was then cropped and clarity and texture added in Lightroom. I have a nice triptych of them sitting in three different poses.

    Title or Location: Bauld Hill, Stanwell Park
    I was on my way home when I saw the paragliders hovering ahead. So even though I thought I would try to get a few photos of them. The storm was getting closer & we all thought we would get wet, but just before it hit, it threw out a quick burst of colour. Sometimes it?s all about timing. iPhone 12 Pro Max & Snapseed.
