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 White Plains.

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 White Plains Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.

Martina De Marchena
Martina's passion for photography started at the age of 12 when she was given her first point-and-shoot film camera. She discovered she had a natural talent for it, which was recognized a few years later when she won a photography award for her nature and landscape work. While attending and then graduating from nursing school she never stopped taking pictures and improving her photography skills, so she decided to swap her scrubs for camera straps, attended Cornell University’s digital photography course, and built her freelance photography business to what it is now. Currently a full-time portrait, family, event, and stock photographer, Martina has been capturing memories for her clients and igniting a passion for photography in others.
