What You Will Need To bring?

Camera - Obvious but you never know!!!

Batteries fully charged!!!!

Memory Cards -please make sure you have enough Memory Cards.Please check these are working prior to the course and make sure you have enough memory as you will be taking lots of photos at least 16GB preferably 32GB memory cards and as many as you think you will need but please think of this before you come as the last thing you want to happen is for you to run out of memory!!!!

Lenses - I use the 70-200mm lens for most of our work but bring any lens you would like to try during the shoots

In case of bad weather and the fact you maybe lying on the ground please bring Waterproof trousers Wellies Waterproof coat

Note pad and pen

Not compulsory Laptop with a copy of Adobe Lightroom installed to follow the training on the last day.This is not a requirement of the course but if you want to follow along during the live edit session then bring one along.

You may also want to view your images from the photo shoots so again it maybe an idea to bring a laptop if required.
