Q: Can I bring my non-photographer partner with me?
A: Yes, we definitely cater for non-photographer partners. As our photo tours travel to the best locations we have a policy of catering for partners rather than leaving them stranded at a B&B. We offer a ‘TOUR-IN-TANDEM’, which will take partners to different venues, shopping and sightseeing, we can even arrange specific themes such as a gastro tour if required. The partners will meet at the end of each day and stay at the same accommodation as their partner each night. Simply email your requirements.
Q: I’m still a learner in photography, will it be too complicated?
A: Definitely not, you will be fine. We tutor to every level of phototgraphic ability and as the groups are small everyone will be given personal attention and will improve.
Q: Is there anything I could get to bring along and learn to use that would make a big difference to my photos?
A: Yes, a tripod and a basic set of filters. Bringing these along and letting us teach you how and when to use them will make a significant difference to your images.
Q: My camera is very basic, will it be okay?
A: We don’t specify equipment, but you will gain the most from your chosen photo tour if you have a camera that can operate on manual. Your tutor will make sure you still learn a great deal about how to make any camera work at it’s best for each situation. We will be looking at composition and framing which can be learnt using any camera and our photo tours will make even a DSLR simple to use.
Q: I Have some new equipment I’d like to learn to use, can I bring them?
A: Yes, bring along any accessories that you would like to master, we will explain the best situations to use them and you will never look back.
Q: Do I have to be really fit to go on a photo tour?
A: Most of the photo tours involve walking while carrying your camera bag and tripod, so we recommend a moderate level of fitness.
Q: Will my photo tour still run if the weather is not good?
A: Yes definitely, you will be able to create amazing photos regardless of the weather or temperature. Sometimes the results can be even more dramatic than usual.
Q: Can I go on a waiting list for a photo tour?
A: Yes, you can register with us to go on a waiting list. The best way to make sure you don’t miss out on your chosen photo tour is always to place a deposit with us for future photo tours. Simply email your desired photo tour request.

A: Yes, and when we have enough interest in a destination we will send out a notice to all registered members for a priority booking.
Q: Can I arrange a Tailor-Made photo tour for a group?
A; Yes, we can arrange a photo tour to most destinations to cater for a specific request, or you can organise a group of your friends. We can also arrange a tour with another interest in mind such as golf, fishing, gastro, wine, walking or….? That way you can split your time between photography and another of your interests. You suggest it and we will look at it.
Q: How many other people will be on my photo tour?
A: We limit our photo tours to small groups of attendees so we can ensure you recieve the photographic tuition you deserve. On most of the photo tours there will be your tutor David Still and a maximum of eight participants.
Q: Do you take larger sized groups on photo tours?
A: That would be possible to organise if you had a large group organised. This would be considered a “Bespoke Photo Tour” and require larger or more vehicles to transport the group around. Anything is possible though so email us with your requirements and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
If you have anymore questions you would like answered, feel free to contact David Still directly.
