What is the difference between workshop, tour and expedition?
Workshop: we have a very light schedule, and in between sessions we spend lots of time on lessons, processing instruction. We have time to teach each other in-fields. Suitable for beginners.
Tour: We bring you at amazing locations at exact time! We help you to setup cameras and travel a lot. We are short in time to make so many tuition sessions as we can do during workshop. Suitable for beginners.
Expedition: we use all our time to work hard on our photography! We have almost no time for tuition, but we work shoulder to shoulder, sharing our secrets and tips. You may always consult with a leader. You should know your camera settings very well, it is not suitable for complete beginners.
