Itinerary:

We have created fixed workshops during the tour to ensure that we cover as many aspects of photography as possible. These are worked around the best light, travel times, check in times and meal times.

There is also time between the workshops for each photographer to have one-on-one time with the professional instructors – to assist to assist with their camera set up, camera bag and checking of camera settings. These are 30 minute time slots and need to be booked in advance.

The professional instructors will also go through each persons photographs through out the tour outside of the workshops – to assess, crit and comment on their images.

The tour does also allow for free time as the mornings are early and the nights are long.
