What equipment do I need?
Ideally you should bring a DSLR or mirrorless camera with lenses covering all focal ranges from wide angle to zoom (around 16mm – 300mm). You will also be able to gain a lot out of our holidays if you have a compact with a manual mode, although your creative opportunities will be slightly more limited.
What will I learn?
The skills and knowledge required for photography fall in to two main areas – composition and technical. Our photography tour leaders can give you advice and coaching in both. We also have offer a 1 day pre-holiday tuition which gives more formal training on both aspects. As much as possible this is tailored to the particular needs of participants.
What levels are catered for?
Anyone with an interest in photography will gain a lot from our holidays, from beginners to those that have been doing it for years.
What prior knowledge do I need?
If you are a beginner then ideally you would be able to get a decent exposure in manual mode, however this is not essential as we can easily get you up to speed.
How many people will be in the group?
There will be a maximum of 10 people in the group, but most holidays have 6 to 8 participants.
- Accommodation as stated in each individual description
- Meals as stated in the individual descriptions (usually only breakfast is included)
- Transport throughout the holiday
- Advice, coaching and assistance on the creative and technical aspects of photography
Can my partner come too?
Yes, of course! We visit incredible travel destinations that are definitely worth seeing even if for those not obsessed with capturing great pictures. However, we spend more time than the casual visitor generally would as we work to get the best shots, possibly waiting for the right light, or perhaps for just the right person or animal to come along. Any partner that is not interested in photography will often be able to go off and do their own thing, but at times would have to have patience with the rest of the the group as they work on their photography.
What’s not included?
Flights for overseas holidays.
What about transfers from the airport / train station?
Transfers are available at an extra cost which is detailed on the ‘Important Info’ tab of each holiday.
