About the event

Whether you're brand new to photography, just purchased a new camera, or just want to refresh your skills, join Sony Advocate and seasoned photography tutor, Craig Turnbull, for an educational, fun-filled day of all things photography.

Craig’s experience and knowledge extends well beyond the Sony system, so no matter what make or model camera you own, you are more than welcome to join. If your camera has both S (TV) and A (AV) modes on the dial you’re all set.

If you’re not sure what this means just contact Craig before signing up.

We will meet at the Library Café where Craig will run through what you can expect during the day, get to know you and what you’d like to get from the day’s shoot.

After an initial walk around, we will take a short break at 10:30, lunch at 12pm, followed by another short break at 2pm. These breaks are designed to give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your camera, it’s settings and anything else you are unclear about.
