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 in Bakersfield .

  • 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 Bakersfield Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    I enjoyed Michael Perrys class. He is very informative and helps pinpoint many things in our cameras that we have not known about, he is easy to follow along when taking photos and setting up cameras. I do wish to learn more from him.
    Michael Perry (
    One of the joys of a profession in photography is capturing, and sharing with others the beauties of nature: the mountains vibrant with fall colors, the exuberance of a field of poppies, the mysterious geometry of stars moving in the night sky.

    Decades of landscape photography as well as a career as a psychologist have guided me to offer images sometimes simple, sometimes otherworldly.

    My tools include medium format and 35mm film cameras and wet darkroom. Now I use 35mm digital cameras, Photoshop and Lightroom. My images have appeared in various publications and in three coffee-table fine-art books.

    I love the art expressed in a photographic image. And the craft of photography excites me too. I love to teach!
    I hold a California Teaching Credential in Photography and have taught Photography from the 8th grade to Jr. College level.
