What we're about

Bradenton Photo Group's main purpose is to create, inspire and educate the world about photography. We do this through classes, seminars, workshops, photo walks, and other photo group experiences.

The classes and events sponsored or hosted directly by JPI are posted, on Facebook, Meetup, Eventbrite, and on JPI website. JPI also sends out an email about twice a month about classes. These sites are used to maximize exposure through various social media. On Facebook and Meetup, you can add your name, post comments, or mark you are interested in a particular class or event. Everyone is welcome to follow or join on any of those sites. If there are any changes or modifications, each will also be updated.

Official online processing for JPI registration is through Eventbrite - http://jpiinfocus.eventbrite.com . There is a service fee for Eventbrite, but you do not need an account with them. You can also call the store to pay and register - (941) 896-9921 with no service fee. If you have a complimentary ticket or gift card, you will have to contact the store to save your spot.

Not every event, like the upcoming demos, requires registration. Those are on a first-come, first-served basis. It will state in the description if the class requires registration.

The class duration may vary, somewhat, from the designated time - depending on group size, and group involvement. Each class has an active participation element and expects full interaction with each student. The goal is for everyone to learn, create, and enjoy. All events are scheduled to begin at the start times listed on the individual event page. To ensure the best educational experience, please plan to arrive 15 to 10 minutes early.

Dates & times posted in print and online are subject to change.

Refunds: There are no refunds unless a class is canceled.

Thank You,
