Module 1 - Basic Principles

In our Basic Principles webinar we set the scene for the whole series, looking at why taking control of your camera is so important. Andy has developed his own style for creating these kinds of images and for years he has been asked to run workshops showing how he creates them and the though process behind them.

Here are the answers to the most frequent questions that we expect you to ask, if you have anything else just click here to contact us.

Q. Will the sessions be recorded?

A. The sessions will be recorded and will be available to stream via a private link within a few days. If you miss a session don't worry you will be sent the link with everyone else. Please note that only the presenter sessions will be recorded, no user images or names will appear in the recordings to protect your intellectual rights. Personal recording is strictly forbidden, as is distribution of the videos of the presentations. 

Q. Can I ask questions?

A. Yep absolutely you can, at the end of every session we usually have a chat and a Q&A so this will be the perfect time!

Q. Do I need a good broadband connection?

A. If you can watch videos on YouTube or the web then your internet is well good enough for Zoom. We will not be showing movies as in our experience this does cause broadband issues. Before signing up to this event please ensure that you have a broadband connection as specified, we are not able to give refunds for any poor connection issues during the day. If your web drops out during a session or something comes up then don't worry, you will have the recording to catch up on everything.

Q. Can I access from my smartphone?

A. Of course but we don't recommend it. To get the full experience and see the images in all their glory you ideally need a laptop or better still connect the laptop to your TV! So please don't access the session by phone if you want the best experience.

Q. How safe and secure am I during the workshop?

A. Your online security is of vital importance to us. We will use a waiting room before entry. Our meeting address and password will be secret and only shared with registered delegates. During presentations all videos will be switched off and so will audio. You can hide your video feed at any time, many users do this and it's perfectly fine and under your control. So you will be as safe as we can make it.

Q. What is your refund policy?

A. Due to experience our policy is simply that once you have made your booking then no changes / cancellations are permitted at any time.
