All our courses and trips are outdoor based. This may involve long days exposed to the elements, from wind, cold, rain and even sun !
They are similar to a good day on the hills, but interspersed with frequent photographic opportunities and guidance. You will be required to walk to locations and possibly scarmble as well. Our longer photographic adventure courses are by default similar, but are more physically challenging as may include more hiking, climbing and even cross country skiing!. If you have any doubt, we love to chat to you, so give us a call.
As all of our courses and trips are by mainly outdoor based, suitable clothing and equipment is needed. Especially as there are longer periods stood still for photographic opportunities and guidance. We will send you a detailed kit list relevantg to your trip upon booking.
We love to accommodate all passionate photographers, but the nature of being outdoors especially on mountain terrain may be restrictive. However, we can only advise on a case by case basis and of course the decision is yours whether or not the trip is suitable for your needs and requirements.
Unfortunately we can not accommodate children. However 16 to 17 year olds are welcome with an appropriate supervising adult.
It’s best if you bring your own kit with a digital camera, preferably one that can shoot manually (M Mode). The camera should also be able to accommodate interchangeable lenses. In this case we suggest lenses of around 24 to 110mm range.
A good sturdy tripod is also a must, but don't worry as we have a range of Manfrotto Tripods that we hire out.
Our beginners trips are aimed a complete novices, the intermediate course are aimed at those with more knowledge. To get the most of our International Trips an intermediate understanding of photography is advantageous.
We suggest that all overseas travellers get their own Travel Insurance Cover.
