Learn About Us

UK Photo Tours is owned and operated by professional photographer, Dion Hitchcock.

From Perth, Australia, Dion qualified as a pharmacist and is still registered in the UK today, returning to the medical field to help during the Covid-19 pandemic in both a patient-facing role in community pharmacy and as an adviser for Covid-19 safety protocols for multiple pharmacies and organisations.

A travelholic of 40+ countries, his photographic journey began in earnest during 2011 when he joined a local Meetup.com photographic group in London and on his first workshop was asked if he wanted to help as an assistant for future events, which accelerated his learning. His interest in photo tours began with Iceland in 2013 and after multiple trips co-organised his first tour for clients with Iceland Photo Tours in 2014.

Now London-based, he has guided tours and workshops across the UK, Europe, Iceland, and his native Australia. Alongside UK Photo Tours, Dion also runs three Meetup.com photography groups with over 7000 members, concentrating on landscapes, wildlife, and astrophotography.

Dion Hitchcock - Photo Tour Guide
Our priority is helping you capture amazing photos in a relaxed atmosphere so you can concentrate on the photography.

We’ll do the rest!

We also like to have fun on our tours!

With well over 100 tours and workshops under our belt, we know that it isn’t all about the photography. It is also a holiday, a well deserved break away from it all and so it should also be enjoyable!

Once the light fades (assuming no astrophotography opportunities of course!) we aim to have a good meal, maybe with a cheeky glass of your favourite beverage, and relax with the like-minded people on our tour for an enjoyable evening.
