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.

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!
