Your location is far away from my locality. Do have any plans to conduct classes in our area?
We normally conduct short workshops in central area of the city. But this course is designed for extensive learning and supporting tools are not limited to audio visual equipment. During this course we provide you various camera accessories like tripod, lenses, flash units, continuous lighting units, studio setup etc. It is inconvenient to carry them across different locations. Our well-equipped setup will benefit your learning.
Another aspect is, considering the structure of Pune city it is difficult to locate single location suitable for all. And conducting classes in core prime city area will unnecessarily increase expenses and in turn it will increase course fees significantly.
Driving for 4 weekends is worth for your hobby. We have participants joined from out of Pune locations like Kolhapur, Satara, Indapur, Beed, Loanavala, Daund, Ahemednagar, Aurangabad etc.

What if I miss any of the session of the course?
We normally expect participants to complete the course according to the schedule. Because this streamlined learning do benefit them to master photography techniques and their camera. But sometimes people have urgencies/emergencies or business priorities or any unavoidable circumstances. In those cases participant can join missed sessions in next batch. We do not allow to miss first two sessions and also more than 3 session missed. In such scenario we accommodate participant in next batch for fresh beginning.

What if I face any problems after the course?
Just like any other art, photography is also a continuous improving activity. After the course you will keep on working with your camera. You will face difficulties at some or other time. We understand this need and we have sustained and free supports to all our participants forever.
Participants can repeat any of the sessions other than outdoor session in ongoing batches with no extra charge. We have discussion group for our participants. In this forum participants share their work, discuss ideas, plans and execute photography events.
