ABOUT BERKSHIRE
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
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 Berkshire.

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 Berkshire 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.

INSTRUCTORS
Kamal Khan
Kamal is passionate about photography, and even more passionate about helping others develop and improve their photographic skills. He first developed an interest in photography playing around with his father’s medium format Rolliecord camera which was very difficult to use, but took great photos. Since then he got into SLRs, DSLR’s, Full Frame and Mirrorless. He has also developed skills in photo editing and graphic design using images. He has run photography workshops, got into travel photography and street photography. Through Berkshire Photography Group I hope to share my love of photography with a whole new audience of likeminded individuals.
Bill Welsford
Bill Welsford has always been keenly interested in photography from a very young age when he took ownership of the family camera (a 126 instamatic box camera) during childhood holidays. The results surprised and impressed the family, and when he was a teenager, not able to afford a camera, he borrowed 35mm SLRs from friends to take social and travel images. Working in various photographic roles from retail to (35mm film) processing and printing, venue photography for live bands, social & portrait photography on Caribbean cruise ships, supplying stock libraries with travel images, digital imaging and editing. More recently he is enjoying a role at a primary school teaching assistant, and subsequently an running after-school photography club for a year, up until Covid 19 lockdown. He is keen to share his enthusiasm and experience to those who are relatively new to this wide-ranging interest.
