FAQ’s: A few frequently asked questions:
What should I bring on the photo tour ?
>Bring your camera of course; digital camera is a MUST – be it point & shoot, D-SLR, or smartphone; you may also rent a camera from us or a local camera rental store
Plenty of memory cards (formatted and ready to go); always carry a backup. Extra batteries for your camera and flash (if you have one).
For night photography, bring a light and sturdy tripod or we can loan you one .
How about guests and non participants?
Only paid registrants may attend our LA Photo Safaris. Please do not register spouses, friends, children, etc. who are not interested in photography. These are photography workshops covering many technical & creative aspects of photography. We keep our photo tour groups very small to make sure that everyone receives adequate attention. An ideal group size is 2-4 people
What about cancellations & rescheduling?
What about cancellations and rescheduling? Our photo tours workshops are kept very small (max. 4 participants) which means not only do we usually sell out but we often turn away customers. So if someone cancels at the last minute we lose money. If you need to cancel: You must cancel 7 days or more prior to the start of the photo tour to get a full refund or a rescheduling of your photo tour.
What about bad weather and other changes?
Our LA Photo Safaris & tours are rain or shine. As the weather is often unpredictable in, our instructors have learned how to make the best of seemingly difficult situations. Photo Tour itineraries may be changed locations to adjust for inclement weather. Please keep your cell phones & email contact on so we may contact you in the event of a change.
Are your LA Photo Tours this strenuous?
For shooting safaris you can anticipate walking anywhere from ½ to 3 miles depending on the photo tour. Most or all of the the walking will be on hard concrete (it is Los Angeles ). Each photorapher should be in good physical condition before attempting to participate in a photo tour. Our more strenous tour are the hike up Griffith Park to Hollywood sign. Easy walking photo
Tours are Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and downtown Los Angeles.
What is covered in your photo tours :
One-on-one photo instruction/ photo critiques, snack bars, photo cheat sheet ( PDF file) and emai support after the photo shoot.
What is not included :
Cost of Uber/Lyft rides and lunches ride. You can bring a rental car for your group
But I highly encourage using a combination of public transportation & Uber as Los
Angeles has the worst traffic and parking conditions. By the way, gratuities are welcome.
