What we're about

If you love photography, crave adventure and are looking to connect with like-minded individuals, then you've come to the right place!

What makes our tours unique is that they are specifically designed for the photo enthusiast who dreams of adventure and fantasises about having a National Geographic photographer-like experience. Guided by the light (or lack thereof), they are journeys that offer genuine experiences whilst learning and improving ‘on-site’ on your photographic skills and sharing this experience with like-minded individuals from all over the world.

Our workshops, on the other hand, are one-day adventures designed to give people a taste of some of the wonderful experiences that we have on our tours. Just some, there’s only so much we can pack into one day!

Whether it’s a tour you choose or a workshop, we promise you 2 things: you’ll leave knowing how to tell stories with your camera, and you’ll have great photos to prove it. We guarantee it!
