Are there any tutorials teaching you how to use your camera?

Of course! We sometimes hold a general camera tutorial at the start of a term during a Friday event. We also have base-level workshops, especially during the initial weeks of term!

Which brand of camera is the best?
The one you are shooting with!

You don’t have a DSLR, can you still join?
Yes – you don’t even need a camera;…just passion and willingness to have fun!
