Everything you need to know about travel arrangements (we think) BUT do feel free to ask any additional questions if you are not sure
What You Need to bring….…
Day time Winter months (November to March)
Sturdy waterproof walking shoes or walking boots, warm socks, gloves, hat and waterproof / windproof jacket.
A mix of layered tops and thin fleeces so you can build up or remove layers for the days when we are out walking are highly recommended to cope with freezing cold days to mild sunny ones! The British weather can be truly varied!!
February is normally our coldest month of the year with average temperatures between 1 °C and 7°C, although freezing temperature, snow and icy winds from the East can make it drop to -10 °C and warm Southerly winds can raise it up to + 15°C.
Day time Spring / Summer / Autumn months (April to October)
Sturdy waterproof walking shoes or walking boots, cool weight socks, warm hat + sun hat and waterproof / windproof jacket.
A mix of layered tops / T-shirts and thin fleeces so you can build up or remove layers for the days when we are out walking.
Generally in the non winter months we rarely have freezing cold days but some of early mornings can still be quite nippy and when we are down on the coast the chill factor can still numb the ears so we still recommend a light weight warm hat as well as a sun hat.

CAMERA GEAR AND ACCESSORIES:
You will need a camera where you are able to control aperture, shutter speeds and ISO (sensitivity). It does not need to be an SLR however. Additionally…
A reasonable capacity memory card, such as 8GB – or higher – compatible with your camera.
If you have a selection of lenses, then please feel free to bring them with you.
A tripod would be beneficial but not necessary. (NOT a table top tripod)
We recommend you bring your A laptop with a minimum RAM of 4GB. 8GB or higher preferable. Ideally with either Photoshop CS6 (or Creative Cloud) and additionally Lightroom.
Should you not have this software pre-installed on your PC we can help you download a free 30 day trial directly from Adobe which will be fine for the duration of the course.
NB: A tablet device will not suffice for the image editing tasks used on this workshop
Prices are based on single occupancy but should you wish to bring a friend and share a room please send us an email and we will send you a quote accordingly. If you wish to bring a partner, to simply partake of the luxurious surroundings and not get involved in our workshops, that’s not a problem, but you’ll need to speak with the hotel directly and settle the cost for your partner separately with the hotel/venue.
