What support will I have from the photographic leaders?
Note that photo leaders are not tour guides. However, due to the knowledge of the places, they will provide some historical information related to them. The main function of the leaders is the organization of the trip, the management of the times and routes so that they can be in the right place at the right time. They will be 100% of the time with the participants.
Will I have ANY support from LEADERS at the photographic level?
A photographic trip is not like a workshop where the trainers are totally focused on the participants. On this trip, the leaders will photograph side by side with the participants, and share the framework, composition and settings with the group. They will of course be available to help those who need.
The event states that travel is included, will I have to drive?
No. All driving is assured. You just have to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the landscapes.
