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 Columbia .

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

    Kalief Robinson guided us through a wide number of shooting locations and posing ideas with a very capable model Carly Siegel. It was great to be introduced to the spaces that we can return to if we have the opportunity to take portraits on our own.

    A very enjoyable event! Kai was generous, insightful and willing to assist with our many questions regarding lighting, distance and our interaction with the talent. Both the talent and my co-photographers were a very pleasant group to work with. I can highly recommend taking this workshop!

    Had a great time. Kalif was very knowledgeable, let us do our own thing, but was right there if anyone had questions. Even threw out the settings he was using to help those just learning their system. He had challenges for each shoot, which helped us push our creativity to the next level.

    I enjoyed getting together with others to practice some skills. It was a good time and worth the very reasonable cost.

    It sometimes pays to keep old clothing--and I mean OLD clothing. My granddaughter found a "vintage" empire waist dress from my teen years in the closet, and we decided to use it to try our hand at a Bridgerton-themed photo shoot. This was our attempt at a Regency-era look.

    My Gardenias had bloomed for a couple weeks, but I could not find time to take a picture. Then one afternoon after a rain shower, I took the time and got this photo.

    Title or Location: Near Loen, Norway
    This photo was taken after cruising into Olden and taking the Loen Skylift, at the top of which are many trails. We took one away from the crowd and came across this little stream which lined up nicely with what I expect is it's destination. Taken on a Sony RX10IV

    Title or Location: San Juan Islands-Washington State
    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
