Yes these courses are all ran as private 1-2-1 learning experiences with professional photographer Paul David Smith.
Having ran both group and private trips, Paul now focuses solely on private photography tours and workshops as experience has demonstrated that attendees learn at a far quicker pace this way with the added bonus that you get to tailor the experience to your own preferences.
UK based trips are priced for up to 3 people to attend, so feel free to come on your own, with your partner, or with a small group of friends.
Please check the individual course/holiday pages for trips abroad.

The best equipment is the equipment you have with you at any given point. There is absolutely no camera snobbery on these courses and you are welcome to attend with any camera you own. If there is certain equipment required for a specific course then it will be specified on the individual photography holiday / course page.
