Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Why should I do a photography workshop & why with you?
Why should I do a photography workshop? A workshop is the best way to learn photography skills. You will have the undivided attention of a skilled professional most of the time during the workshop. A workshop will teach you techniques and technical skills that would normally take you some time to master. If you are in a group workshop, it is a great opportunity to meet and share your passion with other like-minded attendees.
Why do a workshop with us? On our workshops the focus is you and about teaching you about your camera specifically. You have full-time access to us for the duration of the workshop to actively assist you. As professional travel photographers, we have learnt from many years in our profession how to shoot during any time of the day/night to make the most of our time and get those great shots as well.

“ The 1 on 1 workshop was amazing, well worth doing – Highly recommend. Paul & Helen are so nice & the attention to detail on how my EOS80D functioned was unreal!!
“ Paul and Helen were amazing – very lovely, and willing to share tips and tricks for shooting. Will definitely be doing more of their walks and workshops in the future! ”
“Great, really appreciated to better learn some features of my Sony camera”
“Very good highly recommend it. Paul & Helen run a good interactive session.”
“ Fantastic workshop, so much time and attention was given to each attendee. I would highly recommend this workshop to everyone. Each attendant was given specific information about their camera. There was plenty of time given to answer all questions and we were shown examples of all that we learned. Paul and Helen thought of everything, a nice warm cup of hot chocolate or coffee to start with on a cold morning and handing out lens cleaners before we started using our cameras. Thank you, Paul and Helen, you have given me some great instructions to give me confidence and understanding to use my camera, especially on my travels I have planned. ”
