Photo HERO Course - FAQ
The Photo HERO course is for photo-enthusiasts.
Have you got a digital camera and not sure how to get the best out of it? Are you stuck in Automatic Mode and want to learn more about your camera’s other features and functions? If you love photography, you need to spend some dedicated time, in a relaxed environment and really understand how to improve your techniques.
Whatever your choice of camera or photographic ability, the Photo HERO Course will make you into a photo hero in six days or less! In fact we guarantee that by the end of day one you’ll be taking better photos!
In a group of no more than six people and with an expert at your side, we’ll teach you using our STEP Method®*, and show you all the fun, tips and tricks that digital photography has to offer!
* STEP Method ® = Seeing, Taking, Editing and Printing

A teaching day consists of two Sessions, each lasting around 3-4 hours – that’s over 35 hours of expert tuition, but there's plenty of time to relax, read, go for a stroll, or take a dip in the pool. Teaching takes place on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - Tuesday is your day off!
Our times are flexible, as we may go for a dawn or sunset shoot, or take a picnic lunch somewhere, but on a typical day a continental breakfast is served at 9:00 with the first Session starting at 10:00. We break for lunch at 13:00, and with the exception of the last day, the afternoon Session starts at 14:00 and ends at 17:00. Dinner is served at 19:15.
