What’s included?

We’ve created a warm friendly environment where no question is a stupid question and all makes and models of cameras are welcome. You’ll get to play with the latest gear, spend time with our experts and leave a better photographer.

You will then have the opportunity to play with all the various system as shoot a few frames each on either a portrait or naturally lit still life set. Or if the weather is good we may venture out on foot.
