Travel insurance is the responsibility of the participant and is highly recommended for cover of unforeseen circumstances. You may wish to make sure that the policy covers lost luggage, missed connections, out of pocket costs due to cancellation by the Supplier etc. Camera and equipment insurance is the responsibility of the individual photographer.
No particular level of photographic experience is necessary to take part in our Essentials & In Focus events. A modest amount of photographic experience would be advisable to get the most out of our On Location Events. For such events, familiarising yourself with the basic camera operations would be strongly advised.
It is not a requirement at any of our events for you to own a Leica camera. You are always welcome to bring any other brand gear along with you to use at the event.
You are responsible for your own travel arrangements to get to the event, for any meals not specifically included in the workshop itinerary and any accommodation not specifically included in the event description.
Alcoholic drinks are generally not included (except where specified), nor incidental expenses of a personal nature.
All workshops are conducted based on a minimum number of participants booking. This may vary from workshop to workshop. If we cancel due to minimum numbers not being reached you will get a full refund. Other bookings, such as travel and accommodation, that you may make are not our responsibility and so we recommend travel insurance which does cover unexpected cancellations.
We will be assisting you to take photographs and provide tuition throughout our events. Instructors do not generally make their own images unless demonstrating some technique or composition. They are there to teach you and help you get make fine images.
In the event of a tutor being unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control we will endeavour to provide another tutor of similar experience.
Participants who will be under 18 on the date of the event will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Please contact us to find out more about under 18s participating in On Location and other overnight events.
There maybe some moderately energetic walking involved to get to certain locations so please consider this related to your physical abilities. If you have any other medical conditions that might affect your enjoyment of the event please let us know.
Evening and early morning shoots will form part of some events. You may choose to not participate in these but we recommend that you do take part. Early morning shoot times are entirely dependent on the sunrise times so schedules we set for departure will be adhered to rigidly.
Please bring clothing suited to early morning or evening shoots that might be a little chilly. Sturdy footwear, hat, sunscreen and camera are highly recommended. Like any trip away from home please bring personal medication requirements
