Q: What is the age limit?
All participants must be at least 21 years or older.
Q: What kind of camera do I need?
We believe that great photography is not about the camera but the photographer. The more equipment you carry the more options you will have in creating the images you want to create. However carrying more equipment has some serious downsides. It's heavy. Please consider that you will be walking several miles a day on our photo tours. Which means you will be carrying the equipment with you. The more you carry the quicker you will tire.
You may choose to participate with a smartphone or an expensive DSLR. All of our photo tours will give you an opportunity to photograph a variety of subjects. Having a wide choice of lenses may be very useful; but as a reminder the more you carry the sooner you will tire.
Q: How fit must I be?
All Participants must be physically fit and able to carry their own equipment. Depending on the schedule you can expect to walk between 2-5 miles a day. It is important to note that although public transportation will be used whenever possible to reduce the amount of walking you do, you will still need to carry your own equipment each day and there will many places where walking is the only alternative. There will be many opportunities to take breaks along the way and you may always choose grab a coffee rather than take a photo.
Q: Guests and non participants?
Only paid registrants may attend Photo Safaris. Although spouses and friends may also join us, please remember that our focus will be on photography.
Q: What can I expect on a Photo Safari?
All safaris are hands on photo tours led by professional photographers. Our photo tours are geared towards helping participants learn how to take better pictures and to do it on their own. The instructor will give feedback and direction on how to improve each participant's photographs along the way.All of our photo safaris are kept small to insure that everyone has a chance to get their questions answered.
