Photo Tours and Dates

22 - Lilypons 722 - Lilypons 7 There are two types of photo tours that I have designed for beginners.  They are "local" and "away."

Local tours are local to where I live, in Frederick, MD.  By designing a photo tour in Frederick, I can keep costs down for myself, and pass them along to you.  We will be meeting in a classroom at the Country Inn & Suites in Frederick, which will be the site for our classroom and editing sessions.    Anyone who is participating in a tour, either local or away, who lives with a reasonable distance of the tour location, may choose to spend the night at home, as I will be doing; those who are from out of town will be offered a special room rate at Country Inn & Suites, or you may select a hotel of your own choosing.

Sunrise SerenitySunrise Serenity Away tours are away from Frederick County, and they will be more expensive, because I will need not only a hotel room for several nights, but travel costs will also come into play.  When I am conducting an away tour, the classroom and editing sessions will be held in a meeting room at the hotel where I am staying.  Participants may also choose to stay at the same hotel or at one of their choosing.

All tours are limited to a maximum of four participants, to allow for lots of help, as needed.
