Looking for a way to improve your photography skills and explore the great city of Melbourne? Classbento offers a variety of fun, informative photography classes to help you take better photos and see your city from a different perspective. You’ll learn the theory and technical stuff, and you’ll also be invited to put what you’ve learned to practice. There’s no underestimating the value of having a professional give you constructive feedback, and these classes are specially designed to give you plenty of one-on-one time with your instructor. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s simply a great way to get outside and explore!

The tours are lead by either Francine or Stefano, two Melbourne-based photographers. Francine, from Switzerland, is fluent in English, German and French, and has spent much of her life traveling. And Stefano, from Italy, is a travel photographer who loves cycling. They are both amazing instructors and will give you clear, helpful feedback on your shots.

So, what kind of courses are offered? Here are the best Melbourne-based photography classes to get you started:

Day Photography Class

melbourne photography classes

This is a 3 hour class of no more than 8 participants that will teach you the basics of capturing the best of Melbourne with a digital camera. Your instructor will take you the iconic Melbourne Cafe, the graffiti laneways, RMIT (for those who don’t know, that’s the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, who’s architecture is a fun challenge for photographers), and the state library of Victoria.

During your time in this class, you’ll learn all about composition, control ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, and the art of capturing the urban setting. This course is tailored specifically to digital photography, but don’t worry, if you have a smartphone, there’s another class for you below.

This class will be held rain or shine, just make sure that you dress appropriately for the weather and bring good walking shoes. Your digital camera should be fully charged with plenty of storage.

Night Photography Class

Like the Day Photography Class, this one last 3 hours, has a capacity of 8 students, and takes you to the most iconic parts of Melbourne. Of course, these landmarks are the ones that are better captured at night - Flinders Streets Station, Federation Square, Graffiti Laneways and the Yarra River.

In addition to your fully charged digital camera, you’ll need a tripod and cable release or remote.

Night and Day Photography Course

This 6 hour class will give you the best of both worlds by teaching you how to take the best photographs both in daylight and at night. You get twice the experience with this workshop, so be sure your equipment is ready or that you have extra batteries. Have a good meal before-hand and don’t forget your water bottle!

After 6 hours, you’ll feel like a professional, and you’ll have made some new photography buddies!

Smartphone Photography Class

If you don’t have a digital camera, or would like to hone your smartphone photography skills, you’ll love this fun 3 hour class. Like in the Day Photography class, this workshop will take you to all the photogenic areas of Melbourne - RMIT and the State Library of Victoria, etc.

Your instructor will provide you with valuable information on photography theory and how to practice travel photography. You’ll also learn some technical stuff like how to control ISO and exposure, as well as how to edit your shots on your phone. Because these classes are so small, you’ll get great one-on-one feedback on your photos throughout the tour.

This class is suitable for all smartphones. Just make sure that your phone has a full battery or that you have a portable battery.

A few things to remember before you hit the road with your instructor: make sure to consider the weather! If it’s going to be sunny or a bit overcast, wear sun-lotion, a hat, and sunglasses. If it looks like it might rain, bring an umbrella. And always, always bring comfortable walking shoes.

So, whether you’ve lived in Melbourne your whole life or are just passing through, it is a wonderful experience to see the city through the lens of a camera. You’ll naturally notice things differently when you take on the perspective of the artist, and in this photogenic city, you have plenty of material to work with.

So sign up for a Classbento photography workshop today so that you can take your skills to the next level. The city is waiting to be photographed!
