Who is this tour suited to?

These photo tours cater for a wide spectrum of people at a range of different levels. Steve's skill in explaining things, patience and tireless energy mean that he is able to pitch talks and individual tuition so that they are relevant for a range of different abilities.

These tours are primarily aimed at people who have at least a basic knowledge of their cameras and are keen to develop their skills further.

The people who get the most from a trip like this are those who are aware of the areas that they want to develop. It might sound obvious, but if you know your own shortcomings then you are better able to tackle them!

If you have a greater knowledge, then Steve will be able to fill in a lot of the theories behind things that you might have already thought that you knew, which will help make decisions more instinctive and more confident. He will also be able to help you to take your photography forward to the next stage and can teach you a number of advanced techniques and theories.

If you are an absolute beginner, then these tours will still teach you a vast amount about photography. A large part of photography is artistic and not technical. Selecting viewpoints and angles, composition and especially approaching people to take their picture are as vital as apertures and shutter speeds. Allied to this Steve will explain all of the technical aspects that you need to know as they relate to you and your camera.

You will get more out of these tours if you have a basic familiarity with your camera. If it is new, and out of the box then you might spend a great deal of time thumbing through the manual, and not learning about photography. I should also point out that whilst I has a lot of experience with different cameras, he doesn't know everything about all of them! If you are not familiar with your camera, then you should definitely bring the manual with you! Between us, we should then be able to sort out most things!

Different trips will offer a differing level of comfort, and also include varying degrees of physical activity. The specifics for a given tour will be included in the trip notes. Impressions of Rajasthan is based on the Intrepid Comfort style, which (very) loosely equates to three star accommodation; but we will also be staying in a desert camp , where the accommodation will be more basic. There will be some long drives and a fair amount of walking on this trip, although at the time we are travelling the temperatures won't be too high. A good level of fitness will help you to get the most out of this trip. The trek is not a long one, but there will be lots of steep steps and hills, which can be challenging both uphill and downhill.

Finally, it is important to remember that whilst photography does need patience and sometimes you need to wait for a picture; this is a group tour. There will be a lot of time for you to go off on your own, but there will also be times where we have to meet at a certain time, or during a journey need to maintain our pace. If the group dynamic is not really for you and you have the opinion that everyone else can just wait for you if you are taking a picture, wandering off or shopping then these (or any group tours) probably aren't for you!

who is this tour suited to?

Our photo tours cater for a wide spectrum of people at a range of different levels. Steve's skill in explaining things, patience and tireless energy mean that he is able to pitch talks and individual tuition so that they are relevant for a range of different abilities.

These tours are primarily aimed at people who have at least a basic knowledge of their cameras and are keen to develop their skills further.

There will be a lot of time for you to go off on your own, but there will also be times where we have to meet at a certain time, or during a journey need to maintain our pace. If the group dynamic is not really for you and you have the opinion that everyone else can just wait for you if you are taking a picture, wandering off or shopping then these (or any group tours) probably aren't for you!

Similarly, if you are the sort of person who gets offended or irritated by other people easily, and just "have to speak your mind" about it, then maybe any group trip is not for you. These trips work better if everyone is prepared to work together as a team, and help each other. We will all have a better time, and come away with better pictures and better memories.

We use private transport as much as possible. This gives us more opportunities to stop for photographs, and will also make the travelling easier. We will be covering quite a bit of ground though, and there will be quite a lot of walking in various places, so a good level of mobility will be required. Even though we are going to be travelling at one of the cooler times to visit the country, we will also enjoy hot temperatures at times. Please do speak to Steve if you have any more specific questions about your ability to enjoy this trip!

Travel in Morocco
This trip will require a reasonable level of fitness. We have included a number of walks to help us explore the more rural areas of the country and experience the area at a more relaxed pace. You won't need to be a complete gym bunny, but you will get a lot more out of this trip if you are able to walk a good distance.

For more information, please contact us and we will help you to assess if this adventurous trip is for you.

Non-photographing partners
Steve is often asked about non-photographing partners coming on our trips, and he always say that they are more than welcome - as long as they are not photographer-phobic! Steve believes that travel photography is a great way to engage with a place and the people who live there. Because we are photographers we will see more sunrises, talk to more locals, try more foods and visit more markets than ordinary trips. This means that non-photographers can engage with us - and some even go away with a new interest in photography. We are also about having a good time too - Steve is mindful that this is a holiday as well as a photography tour - so we aim to have lively meals, a lot of laughs and the odd drink or two. As someone recently stated abut our tours:

"Your love of photography and travel is infectious and I can honestly say I have never laughed or learnt so much on a holiday before!"

If Steve had to have a mission statement for these tours, then this is it!
