HOW MUCH IS THE WORKSHOP?

 $4,950 US (includes the full workshop fee, 4-night’s hotel accommodations (checking in Thursday, June 6th, 2019 and checking out Monday June 10th, 2019), daily transfers to/from shooting locations and breakfast each morning at the hotel.

WHAT IS THE ACTIVITY LEVEL?

Our hotel is situated in a great location with lots of shooting opportunities nearby, but we'll also be taking local transport for some of our shoots. Workshop participants should be in good health; wear comfortable shoes and clothing, and be ready for lots of walking and standing for extended periods of time while we’re shooting.

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?

The weather in Paris in June is beautiful — it's not too hot with the average temperature around 65 F°, but it can get a little chilly at night getting down as low as 54°, so bring at least a light jacket or coat. As with any outdoor event, the weather is somewhat unpredictable.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO THE WORKSHOP?

A DSLR or Mirrorless Camera; a tripod with ballhead; wireless remote or cable release; a wide-angle lens (24mm or wider); a telephoto lens; a neutral density filter (10-stops, and or a 2nd ND filter of 3 or 5 stop) for the long exposure techniques. You'll need a laptop with either Lightroom or Photoshop (or both) for the post-processing segments. If you need to rent gear, we recommend http://www.lensprotogo.com - also, this gear topic will be covered in more detail in one of the newsletters we send out to workshop participants.

What level of experience is required?

All levels of experience are welcome, but participants should be familiar with their camera gear and have some experience in either Lightroom or Photoshop.

Are there other expenses I WILL need to cover?

As mentioned earlier, lunch and dinner are on your own. There will be a few instances where you'll need to pay a small entrance fee to an exhibit or location. Outside of those minor things, we don't anticipate any additional costs.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the HOTEL

The hotel offers Airport Shuttle to/from for an additional fee. 

What's the refund policy?

If you have to cancel the workshop, and we are able to fill your spot at the work before May 7, 2019, the workshop fee is refundable. If we’re unable to fill your spot, your workshop fee minus a $1000 service fee will be refunded. if you cancel after May 7, 2019 no refunds will be available.
