Training Start Time
All full day 1-2-1 photography training courses will start at 9am unless agreed otherwise prior to booking. We’ll run until finished, but this is usually around 5pm.
We can accommodate groups of up to 5 people at our home studio in Stilton, Peterborough. Should you have a larger group, we can run the training session at your venue or secure a village hall to run the training from at an additional cost of £75.00 for the full day. You’ll need to pay the hall directly, we’ll arrange this with you once you’ve booked if required.
What To Bring
Please bring your camera(s) with a fully charged battery, lenses and any accessories that you use frequently with you. If you could also bring with you a selection of images that you have taken then that would be really helpful to allow us to get an understanding of your current level.
I Don’t Own A Camera Yet, Can I Borrow One?
Yes no problem, we have a Canon 5D MKIII and various lenses available to loan for the day. There is no additional fee for this, we will just ask you to sign something that says if you break it, you agree to pay to get it fixed.
We will break for a 45-minute lunch break around 12.30. There are a couple of very reasonably priced pubs in Stilton where you can get lunch if needed, alternatively, there is a shop or do feel free to bring food with you.
What Is The Refund Policy?
The fee you pay secures your chosen date and is only refundable up to 30 days prior to your booked training date. If your booked training date falls within the next 30 days then this is non-refundable under any circumstances. Should you wish to change your date to another we will always do our best to accommodate this so long as we are given more than 14 days’ notice of your booked in training date.
