Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula | 15 Day Photo Tour

The vast wilderness of Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula is perhaps one of the great unknowns for even experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Understandably, too; as well as being pretty remote (it’s a 4,000 mile, 10 hour flight from Moscow) little more than a decade ago it was a military zone almost completely closed to outsiders. Considering it’s about as big as Austria, Germany and Switzerland rolled into one, this photography tour will make you wonder how the Russians managed to keep Kamchatka a secret for so long. Luckily for you, the curtain of the cold war has lifted to reveal one of planet the world’s most vast and spectacular natural destinations. On this photography tour you and your camera will be exposed to incredible wildlife, from roaming bears to reindeer, wolves and rare birds. The water isn’t bad too: rivers are packed with fish and the open ocean is home to marine mammals aplenty. But for all the wildlife, Kamchatka’s biggest draw is without doubt the landscape. Sure, plenty of countries have volcanoes, but on this peninsula you’ll find about 300, along with thermal springs, geysers, thousands of lakes, and more scenic rivers than you can count. Our aim is to take you deep into Kamchatka’s great wilderness, on a journey into uncharted territory alongside expert photography guides. Where better to improve your photography skills than in a land with every subject you could dream of? So here’s the plan. Over the course of two unforgettable weeks, we will visit as many of Kamchatka’s photogenic sights as possible with our specially modified 6WD off-road vehicle. Expect shoots of imposing volcanoes, optional hiking trails through lava fields, and the opportunity to get up close to the local brown bears. We will also enjoy a day onboard a luxury boat, photographing the shores of Kamchatka and the magnificent ocean wildlife, with whales, seals, and a number of rare sea birds. All of this will be in the company of a team of skilled professionals, including a driver, a local guide, a chef and a ranger. Not to mention an English-speaking photography expert, who will hold daily workshops and discussions to ensure you make the most of your time here.

8 Day Northern Lights & Ice Cave Winter Photo Workshop in Iceland

Join this eight-day winter experience in Iceland hunting for the incredible Northern lights, as well as visiting the country's major regions and attractions. This is an excellent choice for visitors hoping to capture photographs of how stunning Iceland can be in winter, as well as those looking for a workshop led by award-winning photo guides. Several locations in Iceland offer fantastic light conditions for Aurora hunting and photography, especially during the winter months when the darkness lingers for longer than usual. When the Northern Lights appear in the clear skies, we will watch and photograph them as they illuminate the Arctic landscapes below. Aside from the splendour above, Iceland's true natural beauty is found below ground, hence why this Winter Photo Workshop features a trip to the ice caves of Vatnajokull. The ocean-blue ice crystals make for an incredible composition, and the light dancing off these glittering sculptures means this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for photographers. Open to all skill levels, this winter photography tour, we will make several stops at the glacial lagoon of Jokulsarlon. Deep in Vatnajokull National Park, the lagoon has become a must-visit photography spot thanks to its ethereal ambience and tranquil atmosphere. Not only will we capture the moment that these enormous icebergs break free from the glacier, but we will also photograph their gentle cruise toward the Atlantic Ocean.  We will also visit Iceland’s very own Diamond Beach, which sits on the bank of the lagoon and is littered with magnificent ice crystals.  Don't hesitate to book this eight-day tour and you too will experience the magic and majesty of photographing the stunning Northern Lights during your trip to Iceland.

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula | 15 Day Photo Tour

The vast wilderness of Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula is perhaps one of the great unknowns for even experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Understandably, too; as well as being pretty remote (it’s a 4,000 mile, 10 hour flight from Moscow) little more than a decade ago it was a military zone almost completely closed to outsiders. Considering it’s about as big as Austria, Germany and Switzerland rolled into one, this photography tour will make you wonder how the Russians managed to keep Kamchatka a secret for so long. Luckily for you, the curtain of the cold war has lifted to reveal one of planet the world’s most vast and spectacular natural destinations. On this photography tour you and your camera will be exposed to incredible wildlife, from roaming bears to reindeer, wolves and rare birds. The water isn’t bad too: rivers are packed with fish and the open ocean is home to marine mammals aplenty. But for all the wildlife, Kamchatka’s biggest draw is without doubt the landscape. Sure, plenty of countries have volcanoes, but on this peninsula you’ll find about 300, along with thermal springs, geysers, thousands of lakes, and more scenic rivers than you can count. Our aim is to take you deep into Kamchatka’s great wilderness, on a journey into uncharted territory alongside expert photography guides. Where better to improve your photography skills than in a land with every subject you could dream of? So here’s the plan. Over the course of two unforgettable weeks, we will visit as many of Kamchatka’s photogenic sights as possible with our specially modified 6WD off-road vehicle. Expect shoots of imposing volcanoes, optional hiking trails through lava fields, and the opportunity to get up close to the local brown bears. We will also enjoy a day onboard a luxury boat, photographing the shores of Kamchatka and the magnificent ocean wildlife, with whales, seals, and a number of rare sea birds. All of this will be in the company of a team of skilled professionals, including a driver, a local guide, a chef and a ranger. Not to mention an English-speaking photography expert, who will hold daily workshops and discussions to ensure you make the most of your time here.
