Dion Hitchcock – Owner, Professional Photographer, & Lead Guide

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

Dion brings over a decade of expertise in teaching and guiding photography. He is an expat Australian and when not running photography tours, resides in London, UK, running photography workshops or as a locum pharmacist. His extensive travel experiences, spanning over 40 countries, ignited his passion for photography as a means to chronicle his journeys. This passion quickly evolved into a profound interest, leading him to actively participate in various camera clubs, assisting them in conducting workshops. Today, Dion independently operates his own workshops and photography holidays mainly across the UK, with periodic international tours.

He’s been involved in Meetup.com photography groups since 2011 and since 2018, his own photography Meetup groups have 7,000+ members and over 550 5-star ratings!

He is supported by Kase Filters and is a Nikon Professional Services member.

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!

Dion still maintains his certification as a pharmacist professional, dedicating his time to aiding patients and educating pharmacy students. However, he has transitioned his time into the realm of photography, where he assists clients in understanding both the technical and artistic aspects of the craft. This shift, though unconventional, aligns with his upbringing; both of his parents were artists who nurtured his appreciation for the world’s inherent beauty.

His extensive photography experience, professional background, passion for teaching, and numerous five star reviews ensures you’ll be in the best of care whilst on tour.

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.
