Photography Day Tour faq
Tours - Frequently Asked Questions:
Will the tour ever be cancelled?
What if it rains?
Do I need a DSLR?No – We are happy to develop your skills with a wide range of cameras such as Bridge cameras and manual SLR's – However we do advise to get the most out of the each tour, your camera should have a Manual Mode function. If you have any questions. Please feel free to contact us via email or phone for more information.
Do I need a tripod?Tripods are required for all participants on all tours with The London Lens Project If you don't have one, or you're not travelling with one, you can rent one for only £5.00. Please let us know before your tour via email.
What equipment should I bring?At a bare minimum, a camera and a tripod. Anything else is up to you and what you want to get from the tour. If you have a polariser, ND filters or a flash and you want to learn more about them, bring them along. It is difficult for us to give suggestions on what lenses to bring as the answer will change from photographer to photographer. It depends on your lens arsenal, what you usually shoot with, what kind of photography you enjoy and how much weight you are comfortable carrying.
I am not a confident photographer, can I still attend a tour?
Can I bring other people on my tour?Yes, you can have a maximum of 3 people for the same price - Whether they are family, friends, or other photographers, we welcome you to bring two additional people. Anyone else on top of that additional 2x, will have to pay only £20 per person.
Can children come on the tours?
Are these walks suitable for people with disabilities?We will always do our best to accommodate people with a disability. Please bear in mind that most of the walks are 2-3 miles in length, and that some parts of London are old with uneven cobbled streets or tall stairs. If you are in any doubt at all, then please just call me and we can talk about our options.
Is there much history on the walks?
