View Our Tours

We run small group photography workshops, photo tours, and relaxed photographic holidays, offering personalised tuition.

UK Photo Tours specialises in photographic workshops and small group tours with a maximum of 5-7 participants. This allows for a more relaxed photographic holiday with lots of personal tuition at each location.

We work hard to greatly increase your chances of amazing photos on each tour by chasing the light every single day and maintaining a flexible itinerary so we can take advantage of the changing daily conditions at a moment’s notice.  Along with our featured workshop locations, our trips also include alternate landscape or wildlife options so we can make the most out of our available time.  So make sure you bring plenty of memory cards!

We’ve got you!

Need help getting the perfect shot?
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.

Whatever your experience level, we can offer you assistance as needed on the workshop, whether that be full tuition, or for the more independent photographers, some location advice on where to explore for creative shots to enhance your portfolio.

To help our clients capture amazing images without spending a fortune on equipment, we offer a selection of pro camera bodies, telephoto lenses, teleconverters/extenders, and astrophotography lenses to borrow on our workshops if needed (for Canon, Nikon, and Sony).

Many of our tours are perfect for beginners to photography, or those looking to greatly improve their skills on a photography holiday but have yet to take the leap to costly equipment.

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.

Dion did an awesome job as guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the Scotland Photo Tour! I enjoyed getting to know the other participants and having lots of laughs. Dion did a superb job of balancing the daily weather conditions with sites that he and the group wanted to photograph. This maximized our time each day so that we could capture as many great photos as possible whether it be sunrise & sunset, or moody scenes unique to the Scottish landscape. Dion was very attentive to people’s photography skill level and provided instruction to capture the best scenes considering the settings on their various camera makes and models. He also gave the more experienced photographers in the group the freedom and flexibility to do their own thing when at the photo locations. I highly recommend this photo tour to anyone from beginner to advanced wishing to advance their photography skills in many of the magnificent locations in Scotland highlands and Isle of Sky!

So far I have joined 4 tours in 2022 including 2 multiple days tours to Norfolk for baby seals and Lake District, and 2 day trips for jousting and vintage air show, I truly appreciated all arrangements from Dion. He is very kind and generous in sharing not only his own equipments including cameras, lens and filters to all of us, but also his photography knowledge and experience of different genres. He even taught us to shoot full moon with his professional long lens when there was spare time, which was not supposed to be included. I would highly recommend multiple day tours as I am sure Dion will try his best to arrange more than enough, just like he even taught us to use Lightroom for post production after dinner. As Dion is very detailed and well planned, I feel safe and comfortable to join his tours, with enjoyable memories and nice photos to take home.

I’ve just returned from another fantastic workshop with Dion, the first was Lake District in Feb 2020 and this trip was Astrophotography in Norfolk.Both trips used ND filters something I hadn’t used before that Dion lent to me. Also there were lenses I borrowed for my camera and other full camera setups I used. Each trip I learned something new. For me, I found it beneficial in a holiday setting where I could learn and practice in a relaxed environment with Dion at hand to answer any questions.Each accommodation was beautiful, given that you take photos any time, day or night, it was advantageous to have a full kitchen just like at home! Or big sofa to relax in. It was also nice to have a small group together.I hope to book another trip soon!
