Don’t have the right equipment?
We’ve got you covered…

Our passionate and knowledgeable guides will transport you to photograph beautiful landscape locations and view iconic wildlife, all in a relaxed holiday atmosphere so you can concentrate on your skills and savor photographing the great outdoors of the United Kingdom.

Whatever your experience level, beginner or advanced, our expert guides will offer you assistance as needed on the workshop, whether that be full tuition, occasional guidance or questions, or for the more independent photographers, some location advice on where to explore opportunities for creative images to enhance your portfolio.

Including pro camera bodies, telephoto lenses for wildlife, teleconverters/extenders, and astrophotography lenses for the night skies (camera equipment is for Canon, Nikon, and Sony). Many of our photography tours are perfect for beginners, or those looking to greatly improve their skills on a photography holiday but have yet to take the leap to costly equipment.

Amazing tour on Skye and through the Highlands! Dion is a very patient and experienced guide, I have learnt so much about photography even if it was my third guided photography tour. He knows Scotland very well and could show us many places (sometimes unknown to most people). I will definitely book another tour with Dion.@Dion: what about the Dolomites?

Recent “Nightscapes in Norfolk” Photography Tour with Dion (UK Photo Tours Lead) was a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience. Dion's communication from the start was responsive and prompt. He was also very flexible with the itinerary and was willing to adapt it to everyone's needs and the weather. It was great to have someone as friendly and knowledgeable as him guiding us to the best photo opportunities in the area. Dion even had back-up plans in case the weather didn't cooperate. The tour was well-organized, with top-notch accommodation, transport, and familiarity of local eateries. After each day, Dion would review the photos we took to provide feedback and suggestions for improvement.Overall, it was an exceptional experience. I highly recommend Dion and his company, and I'm already looking forward to my next trip with them!Thank you.

I was fortunate enough to get the last spot on a trip with Dion to Horsey Gap, with a small group of people, all with very different levels of photography experience. I myself a complete beginner was excited to finally learn how to use my DSLR camera properly that I bought a few years ago!The trip did not disappoint, Dion was a great guide and coach, managing to help all the attendees at their various stages of learning and for the more proficient and experienced help capture better compositions. I found him to be very knowledgeable and patient and able to offer a variety of scenery and a lot of Sea Lions and their pups!!Dion was also able to let us use some amazing filters too, and gave the opportunity to go out on early morning sunrise and sunset shoots, this was not mandatory and you could choose to stay in the lovely accommodate that was provided if you did not want to get up early / go out later and join in.I chose to do everything and make the most of it all, which I am so glad I did. Obviously the weather is out of Dion’s control but he managed to find some super opportunities for us and share some secret spots he had found to shoot.All in all a wonderful experience with Dion that I would highly recommend. I have so many wonderful pictures from the tour! I would happily go again if I get the chance to!

Booked this tour with the family in toe. We were taken to some amazing castles and shown techniques and camera settings that brought out the best shots. Dion also supplied camera equipment, had charging support and food supplies including snacks for the kids. He catered to all skill levels across my FY as well. For a friendly and highly experienced photo educational tour with a fantastic selection of sites, look no further than this. Thx again

I had an amazing experience on my seal photography trip. The tour guide was friendly and the accommodation was great - clean and spacious with a good kitchen. At locations, the guide was always on hand to provide suggestions and guidance, and make sure our shots were coming out ok, but also gave us space to experiment and get the shots we wanted.For the seal photography, the guide was very knowledgeable about the best spots for good photos. Importantly he also kept us at a safe distance from the seals and ensured that we never disturbed them (all the photos below were taken from an appropriate distance with a long lens). I'm a big seal lover and it was fantastic to be able to observe their natural behaviour and take some candid, personal shots from a responsible distance.For astro and landscapes, the guide carefully tracked the weather to give us the best chances of catching the stars or a vivid sunrise/sunset. This kind of photography is always a matter of luck, but transport was provided to the local lighthouse and windpumps when the chances were good and I certainly went away happy with some of my shots.All in all, would thoroughly recommend UK Photo Tours in general, and the seal tour specifically, especially to aspiring wildlife photographers and all the other seal fans out there!

Had the best day with Dion Hitchcock visiting Bodiam and Scotney Castles. He is delightful and so helpful too with an excellent array of lenses, filters and tripods you can borrow. He caters for everyone from the true beginner (me) to experienced photographers. Could not recommend him more.

I recently joined a Scotland photo tour this October 2022 with Dion Hitchcock and a group of 4 other participants. Dion’s photography expertise in the field, his friendly disposition and knowledge of the region were beyond anything I could expect. I truly valued everything I learned from Dion during this tour and believe I have acquired some new photo skills. He was even able to provide a whole set of filters for my use during this tour. Dion did a fantastic job modifying the order of our shooting destinations if poor weather intervened. Scotland is a generally very windy and rainy country, but we learned from him that we only have to wait a few minutes and the weather will suddenly clear. Photography takes much patience, as most of us already know anyway. Even getting soaked in the rain and sinking in the mud was all worth it for the beautiful sites we had the pleasure of shooting. We had such a great group for this tour and the best guide we could ask for! I would highly recommend Dion for your next tour choice and photography guide. You won’t be disappointed and will leave with lasting memories, new friends and hundreds of beautiful photographs.
