Frequently asked questions
What’s a typical shooting day?
As photographers we are both painters of light and slave to it so our days are dictated by the quality and direction of light. The light is best in the early morning or late afternoon “golden hour” so we typically shoot during those times reserving 12:00 to 15:00 for lunch, editing or some excursions. We usually head out before sunrise to get into position for morning light and shoot for the first two hours of light and then head back for breakfast. After breakfast, we will explore a new area with different lighting or scenery. In the afternoon, we will chase the best locations for afternoon light.
What camera should I bring?
As a photography enthusiast you’re likely to already have the right equipment. Most interchangeable lens cameras (mirrorless, DSLR or rangefinders) are perfect but many photographers like using fixed focal length cameras also and that’s also fine. The main thing is you should be able to manually control the aperture, shutter speed and ISO and shoot in some kind of unprocessed RAW format.
What’s the deposit?
We need the payment in full prior to confirming your spot on the trip.
Is it possible to get a refund?
Yes, up to 120 days prior to departure you can get a 100% refund, and up to 61 days before departure you can get a 50% refund. Inside 60 days of trip commencements no refunds are possible. Thereafter it becomes impossible to ensure the certainty of the trip for the people who have not withdrawn or the small businesses that support us on the ground in the locations we go to.
Are your trips for photographers only?
We’re photography focused but not exclusive! Non photographers, partners and next door neighbours are welcome to join, let us know in advance and we’ll make our best efforts to organise alternative side trips for them (there may be extra charges from the local tour operator) . The cost is the same for photographers or non-photographers so why not see if they want to try their hand at smartphone photography?
