Please contact us if you can't find you answer here

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS?

You can expect a professionally run workshop. I have many years of experience taking people to remote areas and bringing them back safely!! We will have in-the-field learning, fun and adventure with like-minded people.


CAN I BRING MY PARTNER ON THE WORKSHOP WITH ME?

Of course you can! We would love your partner to share the adventure with you. They are welcome to join us for the walks and activities but partners do not receive the expert photography tuition in the field or attend the critique sessions.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

To find out what is exactly included in the photography workshop, please read the itinerary for your workshop carefully to ensure it is covering the areas you wish to visit and the content you want to learn.

All my workshops are FULLY ACCOMMODATED including ground transfers, accommodation, meals, and drinks (excluding alcohol), tuition, some land tours, please refer to your workshop itinerary for individual inclusions.

HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS ARE THERE IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

I operate small group workshops from min 2 participants up to a maximum of 6 participants, depending on the workshop you attend. So you won’t be standing with 20 other photographers, fighting for the best position to capture that elusive shot!

HOW MUCH TIME WILL YOU BE SPENDING WITH THE COURSE LEADER?

I will be available all day throughout our workshop. I will be driving and guiding you on location, conducting the workshop and sometimes photographing next to you. I will dining with you every night so there's plenty of opportunities for questions and chatting about photography.

HOW PHYSICAL IS IT?

Most of our workshops require a good level of fitness. We operate in remote locations with medical help usually some distance away. This will vary with the workshop you choose but to get the most out of your workshop you should be able to do long walks over uneven ground, be able to carry your own gear including a tripod into remote locations on an average of 1 hr or more, each way. Please read the itinerary for your selected workshop and ask Pam if you have any questions regarding fitness or health requirements.

WHAT LEVEL PHOTOGRAPHER DO I NEED TO BE?

You don’t need to be a seasoned photographer to come on our workshop. We have all levels of photographers attending, from experienced photographers wanting to get to the right place at the right time to newcomers who need assistance with basic camera settings.

We actually like a range of photographers to attend. The more experienced participants invariably help the newcomers, and the newcomers look at things in a new way. And it is all done in a positive and encouraging environment. Different photographers at different stages require different levels of assistance and that’s fine!

I love helping other photographers capture great photos – my reward is seeing the expression on your face when you get that great shot.

I will be shooting as well. I am just as passionate as you are about photography, so I want to capture my own images. I also feel it is important to practice what I preach and show participants what I have found. However, I am very aware that my primary role is to act as your instructor and guide. And I want you to return on other workshops or trips, which you will only do if you are happy. So, please don’t be shy to ask for help at any time and it will be cheerfully provided with a smile!

WHAT TYPE OF CAMERAS DO I BRING ON THE WORKSHOPS?

You can bring along any DSLR camera or mirrorless camera with changeable lenses. A tripod is a definite must with its carry bag.

We do recommend you bring everything you think you might need, but not so much you can’t carry it with you. You will be able to leave equipment behind in the hotels or cars if you don’t want to take it on a particular shoot, but note that leaving equipment in the vehicle while we are away has some risk!
Travel insurance is a must and is your responsibility.
