Other information

Added value:

In addition to all the daily Master Classes, Evening Seminars and end of week Super Classes, PTO have introduced a couple of extra specials for even more added value: “Wake up with Nathan” – Nathan Wake will take delegates out at dawn to shoot the sunrises and in the evening Simon & Brian from the Flash Centre will “Give you a Flash” around the Pool – details in resort.

Models:

PTO is most grateful to the sponsorship contribution towards the cost of bringing models from the UK – ‘The Societies’ and Fuji Film UK. To hire a PTO model for wedding or portrait practice sessions the rate is £20 per model per hour. To hire the Glamour model the rate is £30 per person per hour or £50 for two hours. If you require models for longer sessions – price by negotiation with the model. PTO Model Release forms must be signed and payment made to the model/s before each session.

Group colour coding:

The groups Red Green and Blue are colour coded simply to divide delegates into equal numbers, each group will receive the same level of tuition so please stick with your allocated group unless you want to join a friend in which case please find another delegate to change with and exchange your colour coded badge holder. Yellow Group generally comprises our non – professional delegates

Charity tombola prizes

If you have any please let us have them ASAP. We will again be donating proceeds to worthwhile charities.
