Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions with answers about WPA Photo Workshops and Tours. If you have a question that is not listed, or require any other or further information, please do not hesitate to contact us either by email, or by telephone on 01903 337008.

I am new to photography, will this trip suit me?
Yes, a lot. In fact, our groups are small so there is time for one-on-one tutelage, which is very much part of the trip, as and when required.
I only have a “point and shoot” camera. Does that exclude me?
No… However we do use Digital Single Lens Reflex – DSLR – cameras. Aimed at DSLR users, our trips take the form of a rolling workshop which gives great consideration to all the creative benefits afforded by a camera under manual control, and in doing so greatly explains the workings of the camera under your creative control. However, “point and shoot” cameras of today’s generation can be sophisticated and you will benefit from learning how to capture great images in manual mode! If in any doubt, we can help advise you with choosing a camera or you might like to hire one of ours..
How do I book a workshop or tour?
You can reserve your place by using the automated system on the website. Each of our Photo Workshops and Tours has their own booking form, and is limited to four (4) participants minimum and ten (10) participants maximum. If you encounter any difficulties in doing so, please contact us and we will send you the appropriate form to complete and email or post back to us. And remember, you can also call us on 01306 230004. Eight (8) weeks before the trip we will send you additional information – what to bring, what to pack etc. At that point it would be time to pay the balance of your trip. As soon as you have all of your travel details, please send them to us so we can organise airport pick-ups, transfers etc.

How do I pay?
You can pay the deposit online via Paypal. Eight (8) weeks before your trip you will be sent a balance request by email. You can pay the balance either by bank transfer or by credit card using Paypal. All our transactions are conducted in British pounds sterling. The balance can be paid by bank transfer or bank deposit into our UK account. We also accept cheques drawn on UK bank accounts. Transfer of funds from outside the UK can be accepted without problem. However the exchange rate will be calculated by the bank on the day of the transaction. Please use www.XE.com as a guide to exchange rates. Whichever method you decide on, you will be sent the appropriate details. Balance payments made through Paypal incur a 5% surcharge.
Is my deposit refundable if I have to cancel?
The deposit is non-refundable. If you have paid the total amount for your trip and have to cancel you will not be entitled to a refund. We require that you take out travel and health insurance for your trip. Please take a moment to read our Terms and Conditions.

Can I be sure that the accommodation mentioned on the website will be what I receive?
Under very unusual circumstances we may stay in alternative accommodation, but this would be of equal, if not a higher, standard.

What do I need to bring?
When you sign up we will send you a checklist of “essentials” of both equipment and clothing.

Can I stay extra nights at the hotel?
Yes, normally this can be arranged. Please email us with your requirements, as we may be able to secure better rates for you.

I’m interested in a bespoke trip, is this possible?
Yes, please contact us with your ideas from which we can start creating your itinerary.

Is it possible to bring along a Significant Other, spouse or friend?
Yes, we would welcome your partner or friend however we ask that you contact us in advance.

Stop dreaming, just do it!
