Frequently Asked Questions
Are flights included?
Flights are not included. However the majority of major airports including Manchester and London both fly to Cape Town. Flights are currently around £700 for a return flight.
When should I arrive?
We suggest as it's an 11 hour flight to arrive at least 24 hours before the workshop. You may even want to take a couple of days before and after the workshop to explore South Africa and even take a safari!
How much money will I need?
South Africa's currency is very strong and it's quite cheap to get around. I travelled there for 6 days and spent around £200. Don't forget your food and drink is included for most days including the evening of the first stay.
What will the weather be like?
Bring a bikini. The weather will be hot as it's peak season. A fantastic chance to catch up on your tan when you're not shooting.
Can I make contact with other wedding businesses whilst I'm there?
I did! I contacted a local dress designer and shot her dresses on two shoots including the images you see here above! It's good opportunity to create more international links and create a stronger portfolio. I also contacted other photographers.
It may be an idea to offer your services as a second shooter as it's peak wedding season whilst you'll be there too.
