What's included?

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

Expert Guidance

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.

Customised Itinerary

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.
