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 Cape Coral .

  • 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.

    Chantel was awesome! See is really a great teacher and is really knowledgeable. I was fortunate to be the only one in the group so it was one on one. The best thing she taught me was I need to get out more with my camera to understand more about composition.
    It was a really fun class! I enjoyed using a new medium for photos, and the instructor was very helpful and passionate about photography. I was able to learn a lot and experiment with this type of photography.
    Melanie was knowledgeable, engaging and made learning a new skill easy and fun! Highly recommend

    Amazing instructor, extremely knowledgeable and helps strategize patiently

    Hey! I'm Chantel, a family portrait photographer. I'm a mother to a beautiful 3 year old boy named Bryan and a wife to an amazing husband. When I don't have the camera in my hand I love enjoying nature at the beach or park with my family. I started my photography career back in 2014 when I had my very first photographer job in a professional portrait studio.

    I really enjoy photographing children and families because I love the challenges I face when a parent tells me they can never get a great photo of their child. Photography is the freedom to get creative, there's no wrong or right and that's what I love about it.

    Chantel Diaz is available for private bookings

    Available most Saturdays from 1pm - 6pm
    Sundays Available
    Mondays Available
    Private tutoring, weddings, portraits and events.

    My wife called me in the morning to tell me that she was looking at an absolutely gorgeous sunrise so I decided to come outside and fly my drone, and this was the result. Ana dedicated this image to her because she is my support system.

    Title or Location: Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon Lower Falls
    This past August I spent a week visiting Yellowstone National Park. This photo was taken of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon from an observation point called "Artist Point". Each morning there is about a 15-to-20-minute window starting around 9:45 AM, on a sunny morning to catch a rainbow at the base of the falls as the sun rises above the canyon walls. This i s very popular and crowded location. We were on a photo tour and arrived just before the rainbow appeared. This day it

    Thank you for the consideration.Background to this photo.A couple of years ago on our local community page I saw a photo of a tree covered in bioluminescent fungi saying it was found in Gerroa, 5 minutes drive from me. Wow how amazing, so I set out to find it and photography it too. Since then I developed an interest in fungi and look forward to Autumn when there is plenty about. To enable me to photograph ghost fungi ( omphalotus nidiformis) I go for a bush walk during the day mostly

    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.
