All attendees will need to bring their own camera and equipment for the day and the minimum required is a DSLR camera, any make any model, and one lens.  If you're buying your first DSLR camera then my friend Nina Mace has an excellent blog with some camera recommendations which can be found HERE.  I also recommend, if you have the money to invest, buying a 50mm prime lens, this will give you very pleasing results and high quality images yet only costs around £80 to buy new.

Cancellations:  The booking fee (£49.50) secures your place on the course until full payment is due 4 weeks before the course date unless you have chosen to pay the full fee upfront.  The place is then only yours when you have made full payment.  The booking fee (£49.50) is non refundable.  If you wish to cancel your place and there is more than four weeks until the course date, the booking fee (£49.50) will be retained and no further payment will be due from you.  If you paid the full fee upfront then you will receive a refund of £49.50 as long as there is more than four weeks to go be fore the course date.  If you wish to cancel your place with less than four weeks until the course date then the full fee is due.  In the very unlikely event that the course needs to be cancelled by me for any reason, you will be notified by email.  You will then be offered an alternative date OR a full refund of all fees paid.
