Calling Beginner Photographers in Manchester!

The City of Manchester’s Parks and Recreation Division is excited to announce a partnership with Hunt’s Photo to provide a hands-on photography class tailored for beginner photographers. This class is perfect for all ages who are interested in getting started with photography.

🌟 What You’ll Learn

Students in this class will learn basic photography techniques such as composition, perspective, depth of field, and movement. The small class size will allow the instructor to tailor the experience to all skill levels and adjust technical teachings appropriately.

Additionally, students will be able to engage with other beginners that share their passion for photography.

📷 Equipment Recommendations

We recommend bringing a DSLR or mirrorless camera to class. However, if there is not one available to you, your smartphone camera using manual settings will be sufficient.

‍👨‍🏫 Instructor

Emily Hojnowski is Hunt’s Photo Leader and Lead Educator. She brings a world of enthusiasm to every class and workshop in which she teaches.
