Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful trip which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I have learnt so much on this trip – taking the most amazing photos! Yourself and Phil gave me so much help which I am very grateful for.

If you do another trip to the Lake District I would love to join you again!

Debbie A.

Thank you so much Dion for another great photo excursion.

Very well thought out though flexible and as usual you were on hand to offer useful tips and helpful advice.

Great to use the Kase filters again too!

Nigel R.

Many thanks for a wonderful trip last week, I really enjoyed it and have taken away so much 😊.

I’m about 80% through post processing, it’s really difficult to choose as there are so many great shots!

I’ve been considering buying Kase filters too!

Guides

Dion Hitchcock - Photo Tour Guide

Dion Hitchcock

Dion is an expat Australian based in London, United Kingdom. A prodigious traveller, after visiting 40+ countries he decided it was high time to learn about photography so he could better document his travels and quickly caught “the bug”. He became involved in several camera clubs assisting them running workshops and now runs his own, including in the UK, Iceland, and his home country of Australia. A qualified pharmacist, he’s now swapped helping patients and teaching pharmacy students for helping clients with both the technical aspects and artistic side of photography. Although an unconventional transition, he sees this as a natural progression as both of his parents are artists who instilled in him an appreciation of the beauty of the wondrous world around us.

Phil Buckle

Phil is a professional landscape photographer, specializing in the stunning scenery of northern England and Scotland. Living on the edge of the Lake District inspired Phil to take up walking in this beautiful part of England and eventually, photography. Self taught, he quickly gained accolades for his imagery by being shortlisted for both Landscape Photographer of the Year and Outdoor Photographer of the Year in 2015. Phil has continued every year since to be shortlisted, plus commendations for his work in 2016 and 2018. Along with having his images in several publications (including photographic guide books) and giving presentations to camera clubs throughout the UK, Phil has run workshops for 4 years. His knowledge, experience, and easy-going style helping to put fellow photographers at ease and improve their techniques whilst immersed in some of the most beautiful landscape locations.

This was a shared photo experience with my daughter and Dion made the whole experience a very enjoyable and memorable. From the sunrise at Happisburgh lighthouse to the seals at Horsey gap, a truly informative 4 days. Thanks also for the loan of your lenses and Nikon body (my Nikon D5600 decided to misbehave a couple of times!). Will certainly be looking to use Photo Tours again in the future.

I recently had the pleasure of joining a photography tour led by the incredible Dion Hitchcock in the stunning landscapes of Scotland, and I can't express enough how exceptional the experience was!From the very beginning, Dion's enthusiasm set the tone for what turned out to be a truly memorable journey. His passion for photography and Scotland's breathtaking scenery was infectious, creating an environment where everyone felt inspired and excited to capture the beauty around us.Dion's expertise and knowledge of the best photographic spots in Scotland were evident throughout the tour. He skillfully guided our group to hidden gems and iconic locations, ensuring that we had ample opportunities to capture the perfect shot. His keen eye for composition and lighting added an extra layer of depth to my photographs, elevating them to a whole new level.What truly stood out, however, was Dion's exceptional level of patience and helpfulness. Whether you were a seasoned photographer or a beginner like myself, Dion was always there to offer guidance, share tips, and provide constructive feedback. His approachability made the learning experience enjoyable, and I felt comfortable asking questions and seeking advice, fostering an environment of growth and creativity.As a result of Dion's guidance and the breathtaking locations we explored, I came home with a portfolio of photographs that exceeded my expectations.In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Dion Hitchcock's photography tours to anyone seeking a blend of expertise, passion, and a genuine commitment to creating a memorable experience. Thank you so much, Dion!

I had the pleasure to join Dion (UK Photo Tours) on 2 multi-day trips (Cornwall and Lake District) and it was an amazing experience.Dion is a very skilled photographer who has a passion to share his knowledge, he's well versed in just about any aspect of photography and can benefit even the most experienced photographer.What made the trips absolutely remarkable is Dion's extensive knowledge of the areas we visited and deep understanding of what spot works best in specific wether conditions. This allowed us to have a fluid agenda of places to visit to maximize our chances of getting the best photos even when weather conditions changes through the day.On top of all that, Dion is a real delightful person and a great company on trips. He always accomodates everyone's needs and makes the overall experience unforgetable.

A photo tour to the Lake District was a dream of mine since I first visited the area on my own 3 years ago. A UK Photo Tour in particular, as I had done a day tour with Dion before and really appreciated his knowledge and guidance. So, after an eye opening, thoroughly productive multi day (not only) astrophotography tour in Cornwall last summer, I was very happy to secure a place in his Lake District sessions this Autumn. And, oh boy, did they delivered! Dion knew where and when exactly to take us for the best possible shot, tirelessly providing expert advice, helping out in any way possible and a set of Kase filters ever available for anyone who wished to use it. And by taking us to one or two (no spoilers!) non widely known beauty spots, he gave us the opportunity to take some amazing, truly original photos. And if all this wasn't enough, the small group (only five of us) of like minded, photo loving people and the spacious, cosy cottage we stayed in at the heart of Keswick made this a thoroughly enjoyable, fun week, full of wonderful sights and treasured memories. Thank you Dion!

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!
