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 Modesto.

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

    I extremely enjoyed the photography class, it was a great outdoor experience. I want to emphasize that Frankie was a great instructor, she answered each of our questions and gave us her full support. In addition to preparing a fairly complete theoretical material. It was a very pleasant experience for me and I would do it again with Frankie. I 100% recommend this photography class.
    Frankie was very detailed in her presentation and packet provided for us to keep and refer back to at a later date when needed. What I appreciate the most is that she's kept in contact with me to follow up and also provide feedback on a couple different photo shoots completed and made great recommendations. Thank you Frankie. I'll be back soon!!

    Title or Location: Sunset at Fontainebleau
    Many of give consideration to the quality of the glass used in the lenses we pick but how many of us put any thought into the quality of the diaphragm? The quality 9 bladed diaphragm in the lens I used to take this photo is responsible for the way the sun is rendered in the image, and why I chose to use it here. The lens? diaphragm is also largely responsible for how a lens? bokeh is rendered. Choose wisely.Fontainebleau State Park is located on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain in L

    I call this shot Next Turn Nowhere, because that?s where I shot it and where the road leads. Nowhere in particular. Sometimes you just have to take that dirt road and see where it leads you.

    Photographing Upper Antelope Canyon was on my 'list'. I'm glad I researched suggestions to get successful photos during the tour. This was shot at ISO800, f4 and 16mm around 3pm local.

    Shot with Canon RP w/ 24-105mm lens with ND1000 filter 30 sec at f8.0 ISO 100. Edited in Lightroom for minor tweaks. Converted the color shot to Black and White and liked that version so much better!

    One of the creative artistic edits of my images. I love to create motion and fluidity in an image to set it apart from the run of the mill shot by creating drama and emotion using my post processing skills.

    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
