Course cost is just £99 per person

A non refundable booking fee of £39 is required to secure your place on the course, this is taken off the balance which is then due 4 weeks or more before the course date.  If you wish you may pay the balance in one payment of £60 or two separate payments of £30, either way the full payment must be received 4 week prior to the course start date.  


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 photographer 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.


The first course is now available to book.

Cancellations:  The booking fee secures your place on the course until full payment is due 4 weeks before the course date.  The place is then only yours when you have made full payment.  The booking fee is non refundable.  If you wish to cancel your place and there is more than four weeks until the course date, the booking fee will be retained and no further payment will be due from you.  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 telephone call.  You will then be offered an alternative date OR a full refund of all fees paid.
