Steve mixes illustrated talks most evenings, group practical demonstrations, individual tuition and photo critiques to tailor learning to your own needs and interests. Although primarily for people who want to learn more about Digital Travel Photography, you will learn a vast amount even if you still shoot film.
Travelling with other keen photographers, allows you to benefit from their enthusiasm and be in a picture-taking environment where your hobby will not just be tolerated, but actively encouraged by other members of the group.
