Now booking COVID-secure 2022-2023 workshops & expeditions
In line with our principles of encouraging responsible, sustainable, worldwide travel - we are running a limited number of bespoke photography workshops beginning in 2022.
To ensure you’ll get the best out of your private expedition, while also showing respect for our visited destinations, all trips will be operated in the form a close-cohort "bubble" along with our COVID-secure requirements:
It's all-inclusive... so almost everything.
The Best Accommodation
No twin-bunking here. When you workshop with Paul, you'll only stay at top-rated luxury accommodation in the heart of each location.
World Class Equipment
You'll have access to the best and latest ultra-high resolution medium format camera equipment equipment from Phase One.
Travel in Luxury
Your business or first class airfare and all other transportation are included in the cost of the workshop. From arrival, you'll be travelling in climate-controlled luxury vehicles.
Exquisite Food & Drinks
Start with daily hotel breakfasts. Grab snacks and drinks throughout, enjoy on-location lunches at great local food hotspots and dinner (with drinks) at top rated restaurants
Get all your questions answered about composition, settings, post-production editing & more. Because Paul rarely shoots while leading workshops, you can be sure you'll gain an expansive body of work that's all your own.
Each workshop gets planned accoding to your exact needs and preferences. With Paul, everything is done one-to-one and handled in the most bespoke way. This is your investment, so we're here to help you get the most out of it.
What's not included?
When your trip is all-inclusive, this list isn't long.
Minus your passports, visas and clean underwear, you won't need to bring much more.
Of course, you might want to bring a wide array of clothing (weather can vary from hot, cold, dry and rainy) plus any medications you require - and if you want to bring your own camera to shoot with, check out our recommended list of equipment here.
Paul carries worldwide insurances for commercial photography as well as public liability, but you should always ensure you have your own travel policy in case of cancellation, medical emergencies or any other unexpected situation occurring. It's also a great thing to consider equipment insurance if you don't already hold it.
