What level of photographic experience and knowledge do I need to take a tour with you?
We have had clients of all levels on our tours, Jaime is there to answer your questions and offer tips but in order for you to get the most out of your trip, we suggest that, at a minimum, you should be familiar with the workings of your camera, regardless of what type it is. You don’t have to fully understand f/stops, depth of field, but the more you do understand, the more you’ll get out of the trip and the better your photos will be.
What about level of physical fitness?
Age is not a concern so long as you are physically fit and a good walker.
Please let us know if you have special needs due to allergies, weight or physical limitations.
On some of our tours we will be in and out of the van a lot, especially when we are out photographing in the countryside and will sometimes be walking over uneven ground. Visiting and exploring towns & villages can involve a good deal of walking.
We encourage you to keep your luggage as light as possible as you will be handling it on your flights as well as in the hotels.
Do you follow a strict schedule?
Unlike some other photo tour groups, we do not follow a strict schedule. We have a schedule for each day but it is not set in stone, we tend to travel more slowly than typical tours and prefer to assess the day’s weather conditions, opportunities and will sometimes change the agenda accordingly, thus providing our tour guests the opportunity to understand the culture and customs of a particular location, and to connect with the local people.
How much time do participants spend learning post-processing techniques?
Post-processing is one of the greatest benefits of digital photography. On our tours, we spend most of our time in the field, capturing images but we definitely take time for some post-processing sessions. Jaime uses Lightroom, Adobe Camera Raw, Photoshop, Nik Plugins. It is amazing how a few subtle processing adjustments can really make your images come alive!
