Digital Landscape Photography Courses
Full Day Group Course for Three People
Max Attendees: 3
I offer tuition to small groups comprising of two or three relatives or friends as I find that this ensures a commonality of objectives which can be best achieved. By keeping numbers low, I can make sure that all participants still receive my personal tuition which allows them to get the best out of their day. Prices are based on the full price of a One to One Course for the first participant plus a reduced amount for subsequent participants.
