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 Richmond .

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

  • INSTRUCTORS
    Michael A. Stumpf
    He has a fascination for capturing light images since childhood. In 1972, he got his first Kodak Instamatic camera. Even when out of film, he enjoyed composing photos through the viewfinder and pressing the shutter button. His late father often reminded him that they had family members who lived in Oberkochen, Germany, where the headquarters of the legendary Carl Zeiss camera lens headquarters was and is currently, located. Occasionally, his dad (a graphic arts printer by profession) would see a Zeiss advertisement in a publication he was reading and he would call him to his side saying, "Now look at this photograph, just look at what you can capture with a Zeiss lens!" These days, there is a lot more competition in the pro-sumer lens industry. Currently, he enjoys capturing images through Zeiss glass and a variety of other quality lenses. Today, his photographic and artistic passion has led him to having three of his nature shots selected for The Museum Of Chincoteague's "Wall of Photos," National Geographic "Your Shot" five times Editor's Favorite, a front page photo on the Daily American print newspaper, The National Arts Program of Richmond First Place Professional Division, and Laurel Arts of Somerset, PA, Best In Show. For those of you who are interested in taking classes from him and would like to see some of his works, please see his Instagram page: @michaelstumpf.photography
