Iain is planning early morning (sunrise) landscape sessions in small groups (max of 4 people in any one excursion). These excursions are designed to give those with a good basic understanding of their cameras, the opportunity to better understand use of light, composition, and techniques to get much more from their camera. These excursions will be promoted via Facebook:
To make sure you get the latest news and course information, make sure you like and follow Iain's Facebook
Iain will happily run excursions for private groups requiring more specific needs (shoot location and/or number of attendees for example). Please contact Iain to discuss your needs
Some excursions will have the option of attending a breakfast after the photo shoot. It requires that at least two participants in any one given group booking request the breakfast option. Breakfast is held at the gallery & grind café at Belmont. Participants can order their breakfast then sit with Iain and glean as much information from him as they like for an additional hour (or so!).
Excursion availability can be found and booked by clicking HERE
Excursions are subject to suitable conditions on the day. That is to say that should conditions deteriorate to either a dangerous level or unsuitable for the excursion to benefit participants, the excursion may be cancelled. Any monies paid in advance are refundable under such circumstances.
$60 per person with a minimum of 2 persons to ensure the excursion will occur and a maximum of 4 persons in attendance in any one excursion. Payment should be made by direct deposit in advance of the event. Details will be supplied upon receipt of the booking.
To make a group booking (I am quite happy to arrange these), please discuss this with me via email or phone
Excursions will take place at sunrise unless by prior arrangement. Sessions will commence (strictly!) 45 minutes prior to the sunrise time on that day and finish up to 1hr after sunrise (some excursions will require participants to meet at an agreed location where Iain will then transport all participants to the final location which would mean an even earlier start time). At the completion of photo “taking” time, Iain will remain onsite to answer any questions you may have arising from the session for about 20 minutes.
In order to participate in any group excursion you must have the following knowledge of your own equipment (beyond turning it on and changing items like batteries and memory cards).
