If you want to develop or polish your skills as a photographer and get together with individuals with similar interests go to a photography tour. It may give you a unique perspective on even those destinations you may have visited many times.
It doesn’t matter either you are a professional or you just start to learn the art of photography, there is for sure a study tour for you. There is a range of custom-designed tours that adjust to every student needs.
Before making a final decision to try a photography tour, ask yourself several important questions. Why you want to do this? Do you want to get some technical lessons? Do you need any free time to explore on your own? Are you ready to hear lots of critiques of your work? Than try to find an appropriate tour which offer such services that exactly coincide with your expectations.
Once you know what you want out of a photography tour, start doing your research.
Keep in mind that some photography instructors may ask you to complete a variety of assignments, drop film at night, and spend time in critique the next day. Some instructors may also expect you to have a certain level of experience. Some are oriented mostly on developing the art of seeing; the others will take you on a side trip to off-the-beaten-path places. Some photography instructors may handle their own destination details, but others let the travel experts handle the particulars.
Find out about your group size and group ability. Moreover, remember that there is a great difference between a tour on a bus with 50 people and one in a van with five people.
If your photography instructor does not have a pre-trip checklist or equipment requirements, ask her to put some information together for you. Always check your photography gear and bring the owner’s manual and spare parts and batteries. Some instructors require a tripod, filters, and flashes. Ask to be sure.
