What's included

There is nothing more amazing than being out under the night sky and capturing the stars.
The session is kept to a limited number so that I can dedicate my time to each person to ensure each person gets the most out of the experience.
We meet at the designated spot just before dusk. You will be told the start time in the week before your session depending on the time of night fall.
I will take you through everything you need to know including all the camera settings and extra tips and tricks so that you can take awesome photos that you can print later. 
We will go to a special place to take the best photos we can.

Level of experience and fitness level
You will get a lot out of this session regardless of your experience level. I ensure the group is small so that I can dedicate personal time to each person to help improve your skills and capture some great images.
A reasonable level of fitness is required for this tour. There will be some walking on uneven terrain. I have tried to ensure the places visited are an easy/moderate walk.
Sturdy walking shoes are a must!

Wet Weather Plan

I always recommend bringing a sturdy walking boots and a warm jacket.
If it is going to be cloudy, the session will still proceed and I can still teach you everything you need to know. We will have some extra fun by practising with light painting.
If we do have significant rain forecasted, you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule. A judgement call will be made five days out from the workshop and a further assessment the day before.

Equipment to bring along

  • Sturdy tripod
  • DSLR camera which has manual settings
  • Make sure your battery is charged and you have a memory card in your camera
  • Spare battery and memory card if you have one
  • A range of lens (including your widest angle lens)
  • Remote shutter trigger (if you have one but not essential)
  • Headlamp, torch
  • Waterproof boots
  • Coat, hat scarf, gloves, wool socks, thermals

I am hoping it will be a warmer night but be prepared.... It can get cold!!!!! Wear appropriate clothing. Do not wear cotton against your skin. If it is going to be cold, woollen socks are a must and waterproof shoes/boots. If you are cold and wet, you will not enjoy the session. Be prepared!

And then?

After the tour I offer ongoing support through assisting with processing your photos and general advice. We also have a dedicated facebook page where you can share your photos to the group and learn from others.
