How do the gift vouchers work?

If you have a voucher for a 1to1 tuition and would like to redeem it then please get in touch. We would like to ask you a few questions about your camera gear and your photographic needs.

This way we will be able to arrange the best tutor for the job and tailor the content of the training. We will also discuss the date of the course to suit your calendar.

All our photography gift vouchers are valid for 12 months – giving recipients plenty of time to redeem their gifts.

What happens after I buy a voucher?

It is very important that you provide us with the full name of the gift voucher recipient. If you haven’t done so during the checkout process, please email us. Without that information, we can not print and send the voucher.

How do I book my one to one photography course?

In order to book your one to one photography tuition – please get in touch by email or just give us a ring.

Email – info@dslrphotographycourses.com

Telephone – 020 8947 8118

We would like to ask you a few questions about your camera gear, your interests in photography, your skills, and most importantly – your photographic needs.

Next, we will review all the information, select the most suited tutor for the training, and agree with you on the date, time, and location of your private photography lesson.

How much do private photography lessons cost?

Private photography lessons cost £75 an hour and we do a minimum of three hours sessions.

Occasionally we also do 2 hours of private lessons. We can be especially flexible if this is your third or fourth tuition.

Time flies very quickly and especially for the initial course we strongly recommend booking 4 hours. This should give us just enough time to go over the fundamentals of photography plus do some practical exercises.

 

What should I bring to my 1to1 photography course?

Generally, all you will need is your camera, but you are welcome to bring as much or as little gear as you like!

If you have a selection of lenses, please let us know, and we will recommend which lenses will be the most suitable for your one to one training.

Do you offer free camera hire?

Yes, we offer a free camera hire for the duration of all our photography workshops and 1to1 lessons.

This is a popular option as you can learn about all the different camera functions before buying one.

We have Nikon and Canon cameras available.

What happens if I’m late or miss my 1to1 course?

We start classes promptly and keep to stated hours. Please try to arrive 10 minutes earlier to prepare your camera and all the gear that you have.

Running late or can not find us? Please let us know asap so that we can help you with directions. Our studio phone no is 020 8947 8118.

If you find out that you can not make it on the day, we would appreciate it if you notify us as soon as possible. We can try to make some alternative arrangements for you.

In case you would like to cancel your attendance – yes we can offer you a full or partial refund. Please visit our FAQ page and read the relevant answers about our refunds and cancellation policy.

I can not make it on the day will I get a refund or a credit for another course?

Yes, if you find that you can not attend the course but give us at least 7 days notice, you will be given the choice of a full refund or a credit for another course.

If you notify us less than 7 days to the start of the course and if we manage to re-sell your place or fill that place from the standby list you will receive a full refund or a course credit.

In case we are only notified on the day itself, or if you fail to present yourself at the course then we regret that there will be no refund.
