Terms and Conditions

Don't worry there are very few of them and they are mainly common sense.

Health & Safety

The photography courses generally take place in the little village of Smeeton Westerby in rural Leicestershire. It's a fairly quite with very little traffic but you will need to cross roads at times during the practical photography exercises so you do need to take care. The course organizers cannot be held responsible for your safety while on the public highway.


Smeeton Westerby is a very picturesque villages and we get a fair few hikers and photographers strolling around. We ask that you be sensitive to peoples privacy while you are taking photographs. Most people are very friendly but as a matter of courtesy it's a good idea to ask permission before photographing someone or taking snaps of the flowers etc in their garden. I will inform you on the day of good places to take pictures.

A free buffet lunch is provided on most courses. This is purchased fresh and there will be a vegetarian option. If you have any allergies or special dietary requirements we recommend you bring a packed lunch as we cannot be held responsible for illness resulting from said allergies or conditions. If you are self catering then please let us know so we don't waste food.

Cancellations - If you cancel
These courses do tend to sell out quite quickly and are usually full. If you cancel up to two weeks before the course we can probably resell your place and you can book on another course. If you notify us in good time you can choose to transfer to another date with available spaces. If you cancel with 48hrs then it is unlikely we will be able to re-sell your space and as such no refund is available so both you and DPC will have lost your course fee. In this case you can attend another course for the refresher price of £75.

Cancellation within 48 hours
This means it is unlikely we will be able to re-allocate your space and as such no refund is available. In extenuating circumstances, and at our discretion, you may be able to transfer to another course with available spaces at a later date.

What if we cancel?
To date we have never had to cancel a group course. In the unlikely event we need to cancel a course you will be offered a full refund or the chance to attend another course. If it should happen we promise to give you as much notice as possible and we will always aim to provide you with an alternative course where possible or a full or partial refund at our discretion. Refunds are limited the cost of the course and no additional payments will be made for travel or other expenses.

Advanced Courses
The Professional, Intensive and Advanced Courses must be completed within three months to maintain momentum. No refunds are allowed so once you commit, that's it.

Gift Vouchers
Gift Vouchers are valid for a full twelve months, and we could stretch this to longer at our discretion, so no refunds are allowed. We will aim to keep the purchaser or the recipient informed about upcoming courses but we do recommend you also keep an eye on the website. Please remember to inform us about any change in your contact details.

The weather
We have never had to cancel a course yet due to the weather. In the unlikely event that it does rain continually we have a contingency plan to ensure you still gain a great deal from the day.

Liability Limitation
We assume no liability for any act, error, omission, injury, loss, delay, mishap, or damage to persons or property arising from any cause during the course or in transit thereto.

As there is always an element of risk in any outdoor workshop, participants must be physically fit and capable of participating in the said workshops, and are fully and completely aware of any associated risks created by field locations and weather.

We reserve the right to change our itinerary should conditions necessitate, or to cancel any aspect of the workshop due to exceptional circumstances. We can accept no responsibility for losses or additional expenses due to delay or changes in the services to be provided. In the event that we deem it necessary to cancel the workshop we will provide a full refund which the participant acknowledges as full and final settlement.

Student Testimonials

Having spent over a year using my camera only on full auto to take photos I decided I needed help to figure out all the settings I should be using and I'm so pleased I did.
This photography course explained all the settings and all the best picture composition tips I needed. Glen ensured no one left without all of their questions being answered- including me.

Hi Glen "Thanks for a most enjoyable and informative day, It answered all my questioned plus many more. Considering lunch was included I thought it was really excellent value for money."

David Stone

Hi Glen. I'm just dropping you a note to say how much I enjoyed the course today. You answered all my questions and gave me the confidence to go out and use my camera properly. Today has turned my box of expensive gadgets into top class photography equipment. Thanks!

This has been a great photography course and I know I can now take proper photographs instead of just snaps.

Highly Recommended.

A good balance of technical & practical information with enough detail for the more experienced camera user without losing the beginners interest. A great course for getting the best out of my DSLR.
