How many people minimum and maximum per group session? 

2 minimum and 8 maximum. We will email you 3 days before to request to postpone to another suitable date if we only have your single booking.

If there is only 1 person booked can we still go ahead?

Yes if you don't mind doing a private session for 2 hours instead of 3. You will still cover all learning material and all photo locations and you won't be charged extra for a private session. You can also choose to postpone if you would prefer to be in a group.

Will you re-schedule if it is raining?

We will notify you up to two hours before. Please provide us a contact mobile number. We will try and give you as much notice as possible. In most cases we will not cancel. Rain or shine we'll be fine if you bring the following items to keep you and your camera dry. Umbrella, small towel, plastic bag, good walking shoes & raincoat. On some tours we will visit areas where you will be undercover or indoors.

All levels of experience welcome but would suggest you start with a day course before you jump into a night session which requires a little more manual control.

What level of experience do I need for the night session? 

 Would suggest you do the day session first if you are an absolute beginner. Bring your tripod.

Can minors under 16 years of age join the workshop? 

Minors (From 8-15 years) must be accompanied by an adult unless written consent is given before hand (12-15 years).

I recently purchased a gift voucher that I would like to redeem, can I use this voucher in any city on the day or night session?
Yes if it is the same value. The only vouchers that can be used on a day or night session are the ones purchased directly from this website but may be open to changing after you have redeemed from another site.

I have a voucher code, where and how do I redeem and book?

Once you have chosen the course, time and date, you will have the option to add your voucher number which will give you a credit for the same value when booking.

If I buy a gift voucher can the recipient choose which workshop or course to do after?

Yes, when the gift card or vouchers are ready to be used, the voucher code is typed in after a course, and date has been chosen. The total price will credit the value of the course. For example, if you change your gift card from a day to a night course (same $99 value) or change from one city to another it will be fine. If you have any trouble please email me and I can book it for you.
