Can I bring children?
From an early age, photography has played such a key role in my life. As part of my desire to champion photography to young people I offer free places for under 16s when accompanied by a paying adult.
What if the weather forecast is bad?
You may be surprised just how many bad forecasts result in beautiful days - it happens a lot!
Walking Photography will always try and proceed with a planned photo walk. If extreme weather conditions or severe accessibility issues arise, then the walk date will rearranged for a convenient date.
What if the weather is bad?
It is surprisingly rare to have an event that is completely marred by the weather. With a deep to commitment to offering fun and enjoyable photo walks and workshops, if the event is judged to have been ruined by the weather participants will be given a 50% discount voucher off a future Photo Walk workshop up to the same value.
Can I bring my camera phone or tablet?
Yes! We welcome camera phone and tablet walkers on most photo walks. There are some events like Get a Grip Course and the Night Photo Walks where you require manual functions on your camera. Such events are clearly noted in the descriptions.
What is the accessibility like?
Accessibility varies widely from event to event. Please get in touch with any accessibility questions.
Walking Photography also offers Private Leisure Tours at a fixed rate that can be tailored to address any accessibility needs.
