    Great to hear from you Pamela.

    We are serious about teaching photography so we require that every-one attending should pay the appropriate course fee. Most people today have a digital camera or smart phone. Join as a participant and share the learning experience with your son. Compact cameras and phones are suitable for our photography tours.

    Individuals who have special needs and require a helper to attend and offer support can attend free. Do let us know if this applies in your case.

    We hope this information helps.

    Kind Regards
    Lou Smith
