Is my deposit refundable if I have to cancel?
The deposit is non-refundable. If you have paid the total amount for your trip and have to cancel at the last minute you will unfortunately not be entitled to a refund, as we will still have to pay the travel, hotel and tutor costs. We advise you to take out insurance for your trip against flight delays and other eventualities that may prevent you from being able to take part.
What camera gear is required?
Ideally you will own a good quality DSLR or mirrorless camera with 20mp or more, you should also have lenses that cover 24-200mm. Other requirements include - a solid tripod, a cable release and ND filters would be an advantage (for long exposure photography). If you have any concerns or queries please contact me.
I’d like to bring my partner along - is this possible?
Yes absolutely, although the cost of this does depend on whether in fact your partner is taking a photographers place and would be charged accordingly. Just let us know which trip you're interested in and we will work out a cost for your partner.
What do I need to bring?
You will receive a full list of 'essentials' of both equipment and clothing when you sign up for a photo workshop or tour. Don't worry, though, it's all pretty standard stuff. If you havent received this information and you need it urgently, please just let us know and we will send the list straight out to you by email.
