other information will I receive about the tour?
Photoventures has always prided itself on offering the client a
comprehensive information booklet for each tour. This booklet contains
a detailed itinerary, route maps, addresses and telephone numbers
of motels/hotels, a comprehensive gazetteer of locations and places
that the tour will visit together with any other pertinent information.
This comprehensive booklet can run into more that sixty pages and

Photoventures does not operate workshops. Our tours are designed
to take you to the very best locations at the right time to allow
you to practice the art of photography. That said there is expert
advice on hand to help and guide should you require. With a Photoventures
tour all the planning and arrangements are left to the experts and
the client just has to enjoy the photography
only do landscape tours?
Certainly not! Photoventures offer a wide range of tours covering
many aspects of travel photography. One of our fundamental aims
is to offer the client a diverse array of photography on any given
trip. We are always looking to add new twists to popular locations
in order that our clients can enjoy a wide variety of photography.
long are your tours?
Our tours vary in length depending on which location we visit. When
we visit the USA our tours are usually eighteen days or more including
travel. This allows us to incorporate over two weeks of actual photography
on the ground. Other tours vary in length but all are planned to
offer our clients great value for money.
need a visa for the USA?
When you visit the USA you can take advantage of the Visa Waiver
scheme. You will need a machine readable passport with more than
six months left to run. Shortly this requirement will be changed
and biometric passports will be required. Before you arrive in the
USA you will be given an I90 Visa Waiver form to complete and this
you will hand to Immigration on arrival to secure your 90 days Visa
Waiver. Please note that everyone must pass through Immigration
at the first airport they land in the USA. From 2009 the US Homeland
Security insist that all passengers arriving from the United Kingdom
have obtained a prior permission to enter the United States of America.
This permission is called the Electronic System fro Travel Authorisation
(ESTA). Application are made online at https://esta.dhs.gov
and all travellers must have this authorisation and inform Photoventures
of the Application Number no later than 70 days prior to departure.
do I do about Visa’s for other countries?
Each country has a different Visa application system though one
thing remains constant, namely the requirement for the individual
client to obtain their own Visa. Photoventures will offer help and
advice on how to obtain visas.
do I do about Vaccinations?
A number of countries we visit require that clients have precautionary
vaccinations and take special medicine such as anti malaria medications.
On these occasions Photoventures will inform clients on what vaccinations
or medicines are required and how best to obtain them. Details can
be obtained from you local General Practitioner, Travel Clinic of
