ABOUT WIGAN
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 Wigan.

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 Wigan 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
Valentina Passerini
Valentina is an artist and photographer currently interested in texture, colour and man-made environments. She tries to explore both film and digital photography being captured by the intrinsic difference of the two processes. She is very interested in classical and contemporary art and she is passionate about opening other people's eyes to the wonders of art history. She currently teaches photography classes with the Liverpool photography group hoping to help any beginner or amateur photographer with an interest in making images.
Viv Jambors
Viv is an artist and photographer who has been involved in photography for over 20 years covering both wet photography and digital techniques. She taught on a very successful GCE 'A' level Photography course for 16 years and also acted as the course leader. In her own practice, Viv tries to challenge herself in combining traditional and experimental photographic techniques and even questioning whether images need to be flat or a part of mixed media etc. Currently she is exploring shapes, lines, patterns and textures along with a long term focus of macro and abstracts as a response to nature. Viv is keen to share her enthusiasm for photography, to encourage people to find their own personal response to a subject, and to gain an increasing confidence with their cameras.
