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 Eastbourne.

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 Eastbourne 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.

Ella Barks
Ella Barks is a Brighton based portrait, documentary and fine art photographer, who recently graduated from studying Photography BA (Hons) at the University of Brighton with a First Class Honours. Barks' works with a multitude of mediums, typically using digital for studio shoots, taking portraits exploring themes of identity and the beauty of the human form, expressing emotions through body language. She is fascinated by our psyches and the complexity of the human mind using post production manipulation to create confusing aesthetics. With a medium so grounded in ‘reality’ she likes to test the boundaries and explore the portal of the subconscious mind through art. Her passion for film photography coincides with her passion to travel and her interest in photojournalism; using photography to delve into the understanding of human connections. She uses this medium while she travels to further her knowledge and understanding of the human and cultural similarities we share and the beauty of our differences.
