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 Bolton.

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 Bolton 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.

Mai Hem
Mai Hem is a professional photographer currently based in the uk. Mai Hem is naturally creative, and experimented with various forms of art and music as a child. However, the camera lens came later in life as her channel for emotional expression. “Photography is my visual release for emotions and thoughts i struggle to vocalise, comprehend, or understand at times.” Mai Hem is drawn to urban, urbex, and street photography, where the stories of creation, connection, and destruction are dynamically flowing; but is in awe of the beauty within landscapes and nature, and power of the portrait. Mai Hem’s teaching style is emotive and intuitive which allows students to feel their way into producing images that can encapsulate emotion, atmosphere, and energy.
