Don’t you wish to finally start capturing beautiful photos while you’re traveling rather than snapshots? Photos, your friends will go green with envy? Hey, everyone is impressed by fascinating photos, right? And how good does it feel receiving an honest wow from friends or reading it in the comments of your Instagram feed? Photography holidays are perfect to combine the passion for traveling with photography. In small groups of like-minded people, you discover a place and improve your photography skills at the same time.
During a photography holiday, you are guided to the most beautiful spots in a city or country without having to do long hours of researching yourself – that’s done by the photographer. You will be inspired to try new stuff and see sceneries from a different perspective. The goal is to stop just pressing the shutter to make a photo but rather start seeing through the lens and capture stunning photographs. You will learn the basic rules of composition and how to avoid typical traps. And if you’re not familiar with the camera settings and which ones to use in which situation, you’ve got the photographer helping you. In discussions, everyone is invited to show his/her photos and ask for feedback and suggestions. This will further increase your photography eye and mind and will give you additional ideas about how you can improve.

Together with my travel agency partners, I’ve set up different tours designed around photography. We’ve got trips to Asia, short city trips within Europe or to the US, landscape photography tours to Italy or architecture focussed trips. And on all our trips we will photograph hell for leather.
Although the photographic approach is the focus of these holidays, I’m attaching importance to an interesting and exciting social and cultural program. We will want to experience the country and the culture, too, right? That’s why my partner and I packed a lot of things into the packages of each photography tour.
Photography holidays for singles?
Are you single and tired of traveling by yourself? Photography holidays are perfect to find travel partners with the same interests. Together we spend the day capturing fantastic photos and talk about our shared hobby. As your photography guide, I will make sure that every participant feels comfortable in the group. All my tours are designed for photography enthusiasts – singles are more than welcome.

Myanmar. Jeez, my trip to former Burma was life-changing. When I relaxed at the beach after my roundtrip through the country, I suddenly knew that 2017 would be an exciting year for me.

Myanmar is one of the most photogenic places in the world to me. This photography holiday takes us to Yangon, Bagan, Inle Lake and Mandalay and I can guarantee, that you will take awesome shots and have an unforgettable journey.
