I have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as it unfolds. In light of recent developments and the uncertainty we all face in our daily lives with the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), I wanted to write to you directly to keep you informed.

My absolute number one priority is the safety of everyone on our Algarve Photography Holiday trip. There is a higher likelihood of severe illness the older you are (not an increased chance of contracting the virus), with those under 25 likely to be unaffected by the disease. However, there is no age-specific guidance at this moment in time.

With the travel restrictions being put in place all over Europe and the virus spreading at a great speed I have taken the only sensible decision to suspend our May 2020 trip.

All photographers deposits have been refunded this morning in full, we will be confirming new dates for October 2020 and also May 2021 shortly. There will be a special offer for those booking both trips with a nice discount, all will be confirmed shortly.

Models that had been offered the chance to join the trip have been informed.

I would like to thank you all for your patience as we have now reached a non-realistic date to finalise everything for this May. It’s a massive shame but the right decision and hopefully, you will all stay safe and healthy over the coming weeks and months.

I look forward to hopefully seeing you in October later this year or if you can’t make it, then in May next year.
