Skill Level

Part Time Vagabond Adventures caters to a wide variety of photography tour-goers, but we want to make sure you choose the right trip or workshop. This handy guide will show you which tours are right for you. Each trip will have a skill level attached.

Beginner

You are someone who has used mostly point and shoot cameras, but has little to no photographic training. You want to learn the principles of photography and videography, but you haven’t had much field experience. You’ve never taken your camera out of auto mode, so you want to learn the basics.

Intermediate

You’ve played around with your high-end point and shoot, your mirrorless camera, or your mid-range DSLR, and you’re familiar with using manual mode. You’d like to learn more about how to use your camera, what makes a photograph more than a snapshot, and how to make your photos look more like the pros. You’ll learn about intermediate photographic principles like exposure compensation or external flash.

Advanced

You’re a serious, advanced hobbyist, or even a professional, who wants to either take their skills to the next level, learn a new skill, get a refresher on a particular skill, or simply see a new place with a group of like-minded photographers.
