What is a Photography Holiday?

A photography holiday is designed to maximise the photographic opportunities with minimal or informal tuition along the way.

We have designed our photography holidays to take you to great locations at the best time of year & get you to the right places for the best light.
We try to run things in a light-hearted & fun manner, after all, you are supposed to be on holiday!

What is a Photography Workshop?

A photography workshop is an educational experience to help you improve your photography skills & to learn how to get the best from your camera.

Our captive birds of prey workshops are designed to teach you new techniques such as how to improve your composition & birds in flight skills.
Our photography workshops are also a great way to get in some practice ahead of a photography holiday. Group sizes are kept small to allow us to give everyone some personal one to one time.

Do NaturesLens workshops & photography holidays offer post-processing tuition?

No, we don’t offer formal post-processing tuition during our workshops or photography holidays for one simple reason; after a long day’s photography, you will be too tired to want to sit through a classroom-style tuition session!

However, we are more than happy to review images & to provide post-processing advice should you want some help.

How large are the groups on a NaturesLens workshop or photography holiday?

We aim to deliver the best experience that we can via our workshops & photography holidays. As a team, we firmly believe that the only way to achieve this is to keep the group size as small as possible. Group sizes are usually restricted to 6 participants per leader, depending on the specific workshop or photography holiday. This way our team can pay more attention to all participants individually & make sure that you all gain the maximum benefit out of the workshop or photography holiday.

I am interested in a specific photography holiday, but it is fully booked - what can you do?

Some of our workshops & photography holidays are very popular. Hence they are fully booked as soon as they become available. If you would like to take part in one of them, send us an email via our contact form & we will add your name to a waiting list for the next one.

When it is about it be announced, we will send a notification to those on the waiting list, meaning that you will be the first to know about it.

How strenuous are NaturesLens workshops or photography holidays?

How experienced do I have to be to attend a NaturesLens photography holiday?

Photographers of all experience levels are welcome on our workshops & photography holidays. We intend that you will leave our workshops & photography holidays with new skills & techniques, great memories & a portfolio of stunning images captured during the trip.

Are there really no single supplements on your photography holidays?

Absolutely! We dislike single supplements as much as you, so where possible there really are no single supplements on our photography holidays.
We don’t penalise single travellers by making them pay extra to have a room to themselves. However, there are some trips where it is not possible for you to have your own room due to the nature of the accommodation. In these instances, we make it clear on the event page if the trip is one where you would have to share a room.
