What should I bring?

Essentials:  just bring a notebook and pen to take notes. You might choose to bring your Leica camera if you have questions about its use.

In Focus: notebook and pen for personal notes. Many In Focus events will include downloadable course notes – a link is proved for you during the day. For software-based In Focus events, you are welcome to bring your laptop, with the same software installed, to follow along.

Indulgence: most of these events will involve overnight stays and shooting opportunities so bring your cameras, a tripod, laptop and clothes suitable for the venue. More detailed notes will be provided on booking.

On Location: almost all On Location events involve overnight stays so pack for the destination and bring any camera gear you think you might need. Detailed notes specific to the event will be provided on booking.

What happens if I have to cancel?

If you need to cancel we will refund your fee up to 30 days before the event. For bigger events, where a booking deposit is required, we will refund the booking fee up to 90 days before the event. After that we will only refund fees if we can fill your place. Please refer to the Akademie Terms and Conditions  for full details.


Do I need to be a Leica owner to come to an Akademie Event?

Absolutely not, all photography enthusiasts are very welcome. Most of our In Focus events are of general photographic interest and will apply to any camera. Indulgence and On Location events will often have Leica cameras available to try out but please feel free to bring your own camera along.


What level of photographic experience is needed?

We cater for all levels of experience from club enthusiasts to working professionals. Absolute beginners are very welcome too but should be at least able to easily operate their cameras and be familiar with their controls.
