Questions & Answers
Q) What happens on a 1-2-1 workshop with Ross?
A) The principal aim of the day is that you develop your photographic skills in order to benefit your photography long term. However, with tuition taking place entirely on location, hopefully you will also return from the day with some great shots. Normally, the day will start with a quick cuppa and short technical brief. The rest of the day will be spent in the field, covering the aspects of photography relevant to you. Locations can be decided through discussion with Ross. Being based in the South West of England, you will benefit from a wide choice of truly stunning locations, including the rugged Cornish coastline, North Devon, Dartmoor and Exmoor. More experienced photographers may simply want Ross to guide them to the best, most photogenic locations in the area, with minimal instruction. Weather depending, the day will finish at dusk. 1-2-1 tuition is for up to nine hours of instruction – therefore, during the summer months, there may be a short break in the middle of the day.
Q) What level do I need to be?
A) Any level. Ross is experienced at teaching photographers of all abilities – from complete beginner to aspiring professional.
Q) What do I need to bring?
A) An SLR, Compact System or Bridge camera, a range of focal lengths (ideally, from wide-angle to medium telephoto), film/digital memory, tripod and whatever filters and accessories you already have. Also bring suitable clothing and footwear. Please note: if required, Ross can lend you Lee filters and a sturdy tripod during the day.
Q) What about transport?
A) Transport is provided while on location.
Q) What if the weather is bad on the day?
A) If, the day beforehand, the forecast looks wet/poor, the day can be rearranged for an alternative, mutually convenient, date.

Q) What happens once I have booked and paid my deposit?
