What the trip is like
This is not a lazy vacation. This is serious, sleep-when-you’re-dead style photography. Expect the alarm clock to go off EARLY. We’ll grab a bite to eat together (if something is open yet) and then we’ll head off in caravans.
Each day is different. If we have good clouds during the day, we can sometimes stay out almost all day shooting. Other days, the clouds clear out, and a clear day spoils the photography, so we may only shoot morning and evening and night. We’ll do our best to give you a plan of what each day will bring the night before, but everything depends on weather.
Physical abilities/Skill Level/Equipment
From a physical standpoint, if you feel comfortable walking 1 or 2 miles on uneven terrain, you should be in fine shape for this trip. The rocky ground along the coast can be uneven in some places, but we won’t need to go on any prolonged hikes over 2 miles. T
From a photography skill level point of view, everyone is welcome. There is no need to be an advanced photographer by any means. We usually have a good mix of mostly intermediate photographers, a few advanced, and a few beginners.
