This 5 day intensive tour is the perfect getaway and learning experience for the beginner, amateur and even professional photographer. What's even better, you don't need to get a passport. We are only running the one opportunity in 2018, so don't miss out.

Each day will start after breakfast with a theory/classroom lesson, followed by a number of practical and interactive sessions throughout the day. Each evening (apart from the Sunday) will be a classroom style post-processing class, so we can work together on the day's images.

After checking in, the trip officially starts on Thursday night, with welcome drinks and the inevitable "get to know each other" session, but the real fun begins on Friday morning.
