FAQ’s

WHO ARE THESE WORKSHOPS FOR?
Our workshops provide photography instruction for photographers at any level who wish to improve their skills. We’ve specifically designed these workshops for photography enthusiasts who enjoy the outdoors but also want to learn to become better photographers.

YOU OFFER PHOTO WORKSHOPS OR PHOTO TOURS?
We most definitely offer just workshops. Tours simply take you to a location and let you wander off on your own to find things to shoot. Not here. In our workshops we work one-on-one with each participant, helping to answer any of their questions along the way. At the end of the workshop what participants come away with are not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures.

WHAT WILL I LEARN ON AN OUTDOOR PHOTO JOURNEY WORKSHOP?
Our goal is that at the end of each workshop, every participant has the skill set to go out and make better photographs. While gear is important, our focus will be on the art of photography and how to tell a story with your images. For the beginner, we’ll get you off the automatic setting and take creative control of your camera. We’ll explore how to create engaging and powerful compositions, rules of photography and how to break them, use of filters etc. For intermediate and advanced level photographers, the process is not much different, just at a higher level and with greater care.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE WORKSHOP?
Photography! The key ingredient is that you get one-on-one, hands-on personalized attention. It’s the best way to learn photography.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED IN THE WORKSHOP?
Every workshop varies slightly, but generally here is what’s not included.
• camera equipment
• camping equipment
• parking fees
• accommodations
• transportation to/from location

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO BRING?
A digital camera and your enthusiasm. Once you register, we will send out a comprehensive list of outdoor and photography gear needed for your workshop.

DO YOU RENT CAMERA EQUIPMENT?
If you want to rent camera equipment Henry’s Camera has locations across Ontario.

HOW ABOUT MEALS?
Most meals are included in the cost of the workshop, but each workshop is slightly different so please see workshop for details.

WHAT’S YOUR RAINY DAY POLICY?
We meet rain or shine, and assess the conditions before setting out. We will still go out in inclement weather, unless conditions are unsafe. Many fantastic landscape and seascape photos are taken during bad weather because of the added drama and interesting light a storm can bring.

DO I HAVE TO PAY THE ENTIRE WORKSHOP FEE ALL AT ONCE?
Full payment is due at the time of registration. For our International Adventurous Journey workshops, we require a non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot. The remainder is due 120 days before the start of the workshop.

CAN I BRING MY SPOUSE, FRIEND OR PARTNER WITH ME?
Absolutely. Non-photographers (spouses and friends) are welcome to join us but are required to pay the full cost of the workshop.
