The quest for the perfect shot is something many of us aspire to and on one of our photography holidays we ensure that you have the best chance of capturing a range of unforgettable experiences. Whether you’re a prolific snapper, a keen amateur or a serious professional, photographs are a way of capturing the moment you are in. From a glorious sunset over a dramatic landscape to the dancing aurora borealis, an opportune wildlife encounter to a glimpse into distant cultures, our holiday destinations offer a smorgasbord of possibilities from behind the lens. And for those looking to develop their photography skills further, we offer a collection of dedicated photography holidays from Scandinavia to Canada to the Polar regions.
Recommended Photography Holidays
Ideal for wildlife photographers is a bear watching break in Finland, right in the thick of prime brown bear territory. Staying in specially designed hides, you stand an excellent chance of photographing not only bears but other wildlife such as wolverine, lynx, capercaillie and goshawk.
In Canada, visit some of the most breathtaking locations in the Canadian Rockies whilst developing your skills behind the lens or head up to Churchill on a polar bear photo safari offering unique opportunities to capture the world’s largest land predator on ‘film’.
Join a Nikon school expert and experienced professional photogropher George Turner on an exclusive 4 day northern lights photography trip in Abisko National Park in Sweden. Capture mountains, wonderful landscapes and hopefully the northern lights will come out to dance for you!
