Join us on an amazing day to photograph the world’s most iconic prehistoric monument…at Sunset and Blue Hour!

We’ll spend several hours on site making the most of what nature serves up as the light changes. The unique stones make a stunning backdrop for long exposures, which are possible in the “Blue Hour” even if you don’t have filters (wired/remote triggers advised).

We’ll be shooting from the north and east aspects of Stonehenge which is the most attractive side and also perfect in winter as the sun sets in a south-westerly direction thus giving us our best chances of colour in the sky!

Situated on the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, the early henge was built around 5,000 years ago & the unique stone circle was erected in the late Neolithic period, ~ 2,500 BC, with final modifications estimated to have been made around 1,500 BC. Stonehenge consists of an outer circle of 30 standing stones called “sarsens”, which surrounded five huge stone arches in a horseshoe shape. There were also two circles made of smaller “bluestones” – one inside the outer circle & one inside the horseshoe – as well as four “station stones” positioned outside the central monument.

Don’t have a telephoto lens & want to take some close-up pics like the sample shots? We’ve got you covered as we’ll have multiple camera setups, lenses, & teleconverters available to borrow (please let me know when booking).

Please note:  There is the option for participants to purchase entry tickets and shoot with the general public inside the English Heritage site and then meet us afterwards for the sunset shoot.  Up to date ticket prices can be found on the English Heritage website.

Recommended Equipment
  • Wide angle lens – 16-35mm, 10-24mm, 14-24mm (recommended if entering Stonehenge grounds)
  • Walk around/kit lens – 18-55mm, 24-70mm, 24-105mm
  • Tripod
  • Remote shutter release – we prefer a wired trigger as it saves battery over using your phone with wifi/bluetooth or a wireless trigger to reduce camera battery drain.
  • Spare camera batteries – multiple long exposures can drain batteries quickly.

  • Extra memory cards

Dion Hitchcock UK Photo Tours workshop guide

Dion Hitchcock

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 mainly across the UK, and occasionally internationally.

His London-based photography Meetup groups have 7,000+ members and over 500 5-star ratings.

Dion still maintains his registration 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 the craft’s technical and artistic aspects. 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.
