Have you got a photography related question that needs answering? Or are you just looking for a bit of support and encouragement? Welcome to the Shutter Hub Surgery. Each month Shutter Hub members can book a 20 minute time slot and ask an expert for advice, run ideas past us, or just check in for a video chat. You can be anywhere in the world and still be able to connect. You might want to use this once in a while, or every month, it’s up to you and all included in your membership fee.


Check out the details below about the surgery guests, and choose what suits you best. You can book your time slot in your members’ dashboard. If you’re not a member but want to try the surgery out, you can book a one-off session with one of the Shutter Hub team for just £40. You can find out more about that here.


We’re really pleased Antony Zacharias, photographer and BenQ Ambassador, will be holding Surgeries in April! You can book a video call appointment with Antony on Wednesday 14 April 2021.
