How different is the "Digital Photography: LEVEL 1" and the "Cozumel Photo Tour CLASSIC"?

Not a lot.
But while the "Cozumel Photo Tour CLASSIC" is a 3 hour walking tour, we spend 1 hour in a classroom and 2 hours outside with hands-on exercises at the "Digital Photography: LEVEL 1" workshop.

What gear do I need to bring to the workshops?

The requirements for the workshops vary. Please see the detailed information of the workshop you want to attend. In every case you should bring your camera with charged battery, space on your memory card and your camera manual (if possible).

Do I need to bring any lighting equipment?

Nope. Not necessary at all! If you have an external flash you are welcome to bring it, but it is not required to attend the workshops.

What airport should I use if I'm flying into the city?

To get to Cozumel you can either fly directly to Cozumel or to Cancun airport in Mexico.
Many major airlines fly to both destinations, so it shouldn't be difficult to book a flight.

What transportation options are available between the airport and the hotel?

There are commercial shuttles that can take you from the airport to your hotel for a small fee. These shuttles come and go frequently. You won't need to reserve a shuttle when you're leaving the airport, but you'll need to schedule a reservation for pick-up at your hotel if you want a shuttle to take you back to the airport.
Or you check with your hotel prior to your arrival to pick you up at the airport. Some hotels in Cozumel offer this service for free, but you need to let them know in advance.

You can also rent a car at the airport as well if you'd like to have a car during your stay.

How do I book a hotel room?

Please send us an email so we can help you finding the accommodation you are looking for. Cozumel offers a wide range of accommodations. There is everything from economic hostels to 5 star hotels and rental houses.

If you have the flexibility to stay on the island of Cozumel for a few extra days after the workshop, you'll probably be glad you did. Attendees are often surprised at how quickly and easily they make new friends at the workshop and to locals, and they love being able to immerse themselves in all that positive social energy for an extra day or two. Many people have rescheduled flights and extended their trips because they didn't want to leave so soon. It's common for attendees to get together in small groups and arrange fun social activities after each workshop.

Will there be any presenters other than Tati?

What language will be spoken?
Tati (Tatjana Biermas-Reichgruber) will be conducting the entire workshop. Others may help facilitate some parts of it, but this isn't a multi-speaker event.
The workshop will be held in English. But we can arrange a translator for Spanish and German for an additional cost.

I have special dietary needs. Can you handle that?

Absolutely. Once you register for a workshop we will be in touch with you. If you have any special requests just let us know ahead of time and we will do whatever it takes to keep you satisfied.

What's the refund policy after I register for the workshop?

7 days before class start full refund less 10% admin fee or reschedule to another date.
3 days before, no refund but can reschedule to another date.
Less than 3 days before - no refund and no reschedule possible.

Workshops can be rescheduled within 3 months of the original booking.

Bookings can be transferred once only. Transferred bookings will not be refunded if later cancelled.
You may independently sell your spot to someone else.

I see the workshop I want to attend is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?

Yes you can! Please send us an email with your inquiry.

I would like to host a workshop. How can I make that happen?

We have been working on the “host a workshop” model for a few years now but we are starting to change that up by securing our own venues. That does not mean we aren’t always looking for good partners in different parts of the world to help us bring a workshop to your town. Please send us an email on how to partner with us.

Is it possible to schedule a workshop for my school or school district?

Yes. Just contact Cactus TV by email.

Are there plans to do these workshops in other cities/countries?

We're sticking with Cozumel for now.

Can I attend only part of the workshop (and pay a lower registration price)?

No, Tati 's workshops are designed to be experienced in their entirety, not in parts. Later material builds upon earlier material. If you expect to miss some of it, it's probably not a good idea to attend. Plan to be there for every day of it.

Will this workshop be recorded?

It's possible but probably not. If the workshop is recorded, the recordings may be used for a variety of purposes, including posting clips online and/or creating new products.

What else is fun to see and do in Cozumel?

Cozumel in the Mexican Caribbean Sea is a safe holiday destination and offers a big variety of accommodations, restaurants, tours, sport activities (such as scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, golf, paddling, etc...) and a lot of fun.
You are welcome to visit this website for more detailed information:

Cozumel is safe, liberal and free-spirited.

The locals welcome everybody with an open heart, so expect to loosen up and have fun while you're on the island. :)

Can I record Tati ´s lecture?

Tati allows voice recording only for the lecture. We suggest a digital voice recorder that will allow up to 6 hours of recording time.

Are any workshops available for streaming over the Internet or as products to be purchased later?

Each workshop is designed to be experienced in person. The social aspect is an integral part. So there are no plans to deliver them as anything other than live events. Even if you must travel from far away, it's well worth it for the transformational experience and the results. Get off the Internet for a few days, and join us in person for a very memorable weekend. :)
