Frequently Asked Questions
What happens in poor weather?
If the weather forecast is poor we can arrange to change the one to one session to another date at no additional cost
How long do one to one tuition sessions last?
Standard One to one tuition sessions usually last between 5-7 hours depending on the time of the year and the weather conditions. Due to the distance some guests travel we have found from feedback from previous participants that around 5-7 hours is the ideal time for learning that remains comfortable for participants and allows for a large variety of different images to be achieved.
Can I contact you after the workshop for feedback and answers to any questions that I have?
Absolutely, there is no time restrictions on this service, Chris is always happy to answers questions and queries and this is a service many participants utilise both leading up to and following their workshop.
Can I split One Day Workshops Into Two Sessions?
Yes and this is something I recommend guests to do if it is convenient for them. I shoot the vast majority of my images close to dawn or dusk when the light is at its best, the majority of my personal shoots when I am out shooting on my own normally last for just three or four hours. Guests can chose to split there workshops over two days or even two sessions at different times of the year. A workshop session that has been split will usually last 3- 4 hours for each session. Splitting sessions means you can achieve completely different weather conditions in your images and even take in different locations, we could do the Norfolk Broads on one session and the Norfolk or Suffolk coast on the other. Guests who travel to the area especially for the workshops and stay over night often chose to split the workshop into a sunset shoot on the day they arrive and then a sunrise shoot on the following morning. There is no additional charge for splitting workshops.
Do I need to bring refreshments?
We aim to keep our workshops and one to one sessions as cheap as possible for participants therefore we do not provide food and drinks throughout the day. Participants can bring there own packed lunch and snacks for the day, alternatively we can also stop at a local café or restaurant where you will have the opportunity to purchase food and refreshments.
Is there any suitable accommodation nearby?
There is plenty of accommodation nearby our locations to suit all budgets. Many guests for our Norfolk Broads & South Norfolk Coast workshops stay at the Travelodge at Acle where rooms can be booked in advance for around £26. We are always happy to recommend other hotels upon request.
Bookings can be made online using the below checkout options or alternatively you can also pay by cheque or bank transfer.
