Free Photography Class Tampa

Free Photography Class Safari

Haven't shot in a while? Looking for some photographic camaraderie? Come and join us for this FREE 2-hour Photography Safari.  We will spend part of the the day walking downtown Tampa and reviewing photography principles including shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, and composition. If we get the chance we will also look at some off-camera lighting principles. Tampa is a beautiful city with some remarkable modern and historic architecture, curious (and sometimes odd) public art, and a great place to practice street, urban,  and architectural photography.

The class is open to any former student and is absolutely free. We will meet at a central location, review camera settings and equipment best used in this type of photography, and then shoot together. I will be available to work with you one-on-one for specific questions that you might have about your camera or other aspects of your photography. Please be advised that this is a walking tour. And, while we won't be running a marathon, we will most likely walk for several blocks. Please be prepared with comfortable shoes, layered clothing, and a bottle of water if needed.


Please reconsider signing up for this free event if there is a possibility that you will not be able to attend. The class size is limited so if you take a spot and don't use it, someone got left out.

Polarizing Filter

Monopod or Tripod (remember though this is a walking tour, so if you bring one, try to bring a light one)

Dates for Free Photography Safari

Saturday April 1, 2017

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

 Tips about shooting in a group:

  •  If everyone is shooting the same subject and you want to get closer, say out loud "stepping in", get your picture, and then step out.
  • Try not to block the sidewalk with tripods or groups of people. Street photography includes being respectful of others.
  • Don't be afraid to help others or ask others questions. Some people have more experience than others.
  • Also, don't be afraid to share contact information if you are comfortable with that. Creating a stronger photographic community is a great thing to do, and part of what this safari is all about.
