 FURTHER INFORMATION

  • Class Size

    Maximum group size of 8. Groups of 3-4 will be led by only one tutor and groups of 5-8 will be led by two tutors. Limiting class sizes ensures we provide you with the best learning environment possible, including expert guidance, instruction and personal attention, according to your learning style.
  • Itinerary

    Our exact schedule will be determined according to the whole group’s photographic objectives and the weather. We keep a flexible itinerary to accommodate this. We will spend the workshop instructing and shooting, often from before dawn until after dark. At some point during the weekend the tutors will give a lecture on their photographic ability and how you can apply their systems and vision to develop your own unique style.
    Start time on Friday Night: We do not have any tuition on Friday night, we will discuss photography and get to know each other as people arrive. Our workshops are designed so that you can travel after work and it will not matter if you arrive late on Friday night.
    Finish time on Sunday: We aim to be finished by 5pm on Sunday but some people choose to leave from 3pm onwards, depending on their drive home.
  • Transport

    Transport to the workshop is not included, however we are happy to help arrange transport or put you in touch with any people travelling from your area.
  • Physical Difficulty

    A minimum level of physical activity is necessary to enjoy the workshop. All locations we shoot will be within an easy walk along the coastline, but sometimes over rocky beaches carrying your own equipment. If fitness or mobility is an issue please let us know - there are often locations which offer great shooting possibilities close to the road or our accommodation, or sometimes we also have the option to split the group.
  • Equipment & Experience

    Ideally, you will have a basic knowledge of photography and be comfortable adjusting camera settings such as aperture and shutter speed. An aim of the workshop is to give you more confidence in the creative control of camera settings and shooting in manual mode. We will have a brief session at the start of the workshop, covering camera settings and controls, to be sure everyone is up to speed.
    Camera Equipment: Our workshops focus on how to use your camera, not your type of camera. A basic list of recommended camera equipment can be found here
    Clothing:A list of recommended clothing to wear on the workshop can be found here
