Whats the difference between normal guided walks & our photographers guided walk ? TIME & TUITION - PERSPECTIVE & PACE - TOTALLY DIFFERENT ! Our walks & workshops are specifically designed for photographers, the observations, the content is a mix of photographic without you missing out on the historical or cultural context - with a relaxed pace & the length of walk is about an hour longer than regular walks - so allow around 3 hours .

The photography meetup usually starts at a designated location and almost always finishes up at the local pub over a drink or a restaurant for a discussion about the days event and photography. Post the event load your images up for feedback that is helpful & constructive.
