PHOTOGRAPHIC WORKSHOP ALTERATIONS
Circumstances can change i.e. weather conditions, transport, political situations and even bird migration. Because of this, Bitesizepics.com.au and local guide agents reserve the right to change any itinerary. If an itinerary must be changed by the lead guide while you are on the photographic workshop,then you must respect their professional decision.
Birdwatching is best enjoyed in a small group, and we aim to offer the best leader per group ratio around. This allows for more personal attention and better opportunities for all group members to see and enjoy the birdlife. To optimize your enjoyment and to enjoy more bird species we have restricted clients to a maximum of 6 to 10 per photographic workshop.
