Travel Photography Holidays

The photography city breaks will take us to fantastic iconic photographic locations and the time away will be packed full of photography. The photography city breaks are aimed at all levels of photographer as I tailor the photo shoots to your individual needs.

All the hotels I have hand picked to be in the centre so you won`t have to waste time travelling long distances as there are great photo opportunities as soon as we leave the hotel door. As with all my photography holidays there is no single person supplement and non-photography partners are welcome. The holidays, dates and itineraries can be found at

Subscribers to my newsletter are always the first to hear about new photography holidays and they also receive voucher codes for special offers. (In January 2014 I will be announcing brand new UK photography retreats, workshops and courses)

I look forward to welcoming you on one of my Digital Photography Holidays “may the light be with you”

Photo Tip Friday; Research

This weeks tip is about the importance of research to help you get great shots.

Pre digital and pre internet days research had to be carried out by looking at books, contacting tourist boards etc to give a good idea of the location I was visiting. Nowadays research is much easier with the internet. It really pays dividends to do good research prior to a shoot as it saves time when there and gives you a good feel for the place.

Also upon arrival at a location look at local postcards and travel guides to see where the location is usually being shot from. Then go scout out a new angle that is different to the standard view to make the shot stand out.

The shot below is of the Eiffel Tower which everybody knows what the whole tower looks like. For this shot I scouted out this location in spare time when the light was too harsh for great photography. I wanted to have just a small section of the tower in the shot with some old Parisian buildings giving scale and a sense of place and also wanted a Parisian night scene.

The scouting paid off as this shot has been a great earner and used for countless different themes.
