General Tips

  1. Make sure you charge your batteries as we will be taking hundreds of photos during the course.  Bring a spare battery if you have one.  If possible also bring your charger as there is some opportunity to charge your battery throughout the day.
  2. Clear your memory card so that you have lots of space for pictures during the day.
  3. You will not need a tripod for this class.
  4. Bring basic zoom lenses including telephoto lenses.  Also bring prime (single-focus) lenses if you have them.
  5. Lunch and snacks are provided.  Please let us know ASAP if you have any dietary restrictions.
  6. Course notes and a quick reference guide are included in the session.  You may wish to bring extra paper and pen to take notes but most of our students get through the day and remember what is taught without supplementary notes.

Outdoor Season (March 15 – October 30)

  1. You will be emailed 3 days prior to your course with the meeting time and place.
  2. The majority of the course is outdoors.  Please dress appropriately for conditions.  This includes warm clothing, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug-spray and other possible requirements.  Watch out for the possible course cancellation approximately 24 hours in advance to the start of the course.  You can find our weather cancellation policy in the terms and conditions located here
  3. There is approximately 2 km of walking throughout the day.  If you have a very large zoom lens you may want to consider leaving it at home instead of carrying it throughout the day.  We can perform the vast majority of exercises with standard lenses.
