Landscape Photography Tours and Holidays

Our photography tours take place over a number of days and include accommodation, some meals and full tuition from expert leaders. Our mission is not simply to improve your image making skills, but also to pass on our enthusiasm and to inspire you to reach new creative heights. During every Tour we will provide you with the knowledge, the views and the techniques for making the most of the light.

We want you to go home feeling that you have not only been to some fantastic places, met some great people, and had a fabulous time - but also, and most importantly, that you have learnt something new and exciting about photography. You need only bring your camera equipment and an open mind.

Winter in Glencoe

£1399 09th Jan - 13th Jan 2017 Tutored by - David Ward, Phil Malpas,

Glen Coe and nearby Rannoch Moor contain some of the British Isles best wild mountain and moorland scenery. When you add in the possibility of the landscape being clothed in snow and ice, something we don’t see that often these days in the south of the UK as global warming gathers pace, they become truly magical places. There are few more beautiful sights than golden, early morning sunlight striking the spectacular snow covered Buchaille Etive Mor. Experienced photographers know that, far from...

Venice - ‘An astonishing architectural...

£1349 28th Jan - 01st Feb 2017 Tutored by - Clive Minnitt, Phil Malpas,

It is difficult to imagine that a collection of men, originating as legend has it from Illyria, chose to initiate the building of the settlement that would become Venice upon the most feeble of island foundations: marsh, mud and silt! The true early origins of this highly improbable city are hard to corroborate as fable and fact are woven through its early history. The Venice we see today is a city that could so easily be a product of one’s imagination and this magical place conveys to...

Almond Blossom in Andalucia

£1195 17th Feb - 21st Feb 2017 Tutored by - Peter Hendrie,

Andalucia is arguably the most exotic and stunning region in all of Spain. With its remarkable architecture and breathtaking landscape the region has evolved into a wonderful amalgam of Moorish culture and recent Spanish tradition. If this rugged landscape could speak, it would testify to untold battles and conquests by both Moors and later Christian forces. This is the southernmost region of Spain. Less than 200 kilometers away lies Africa – little wonder that the Moors invaded and swept...

Weston-super-Mare Long Exposures

£849 06th Mar - 08th Mar 2017 Tutored by - Doug Chinnery,

As photographers we capture a precious moment in time with our cameras. Now, with the advent of extreme neutral density filters such as Lee’s “Big Stopper” we have the ability to slow the world down and capture the effects of time passing on the landscape in ways that our eyes can never perceive. If you love this minimalist style of image making, with streaking clouds, smooth translucent water and a surreal feel then this is the ideal workshop for you. Join Doug Chinnery on the west...

Over countless millennia the forces of nature have created in Namibia some of the world’s most amazing desert landscapes. The country is renowned for its pristine and haunting landscapes which are as diverse as the people who inhabit this vast land. For photographers, Namibia must surely rank as one of the best of African countries in which to make some stunning landscape images. Light & Land have been running very successful tours to Namibia since 1998 and we have been continually...

Isle of Sark

£1949 19th Apr - 26th Apr 2017 Tutored by - Clive Minnitt, Phil Malpas,

Just 80 miles south of the English coast, between Guernsey and Normandy, lies the hidden jewel that is the Isle of Sark. Covering 2.2 square miles and with a resident population of only 600, the island is about 3 miles long and a mile and a half wide and yet it boasts over 40 miles of what must surely be some of the most spectacular and picturesque coastline anywhere in the world. A visit to Sark is a step back in time to another era where peace and tranquillity prevail. The fact that there are...

Chicago

£1515 - 2295 08th May - 14th May 2017 Tutored by - Justin Reznick,

Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper and filled with incredible architectural gems from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry and beyond. After a great fire in 1871, Chicago had to start from scratch, and aimed for the most ambitious buildings of its time. This started a movement to push boundaries and be on the forefront of architecture which hasn’t slowed down, even to this day. You will have the opportunity to photograph the many fascinating skyscrapers of Chicago like the Willis...

Tuscany - A Heavenly Landscape

£1899 20th May - 27th May 2017 Tutored by - Clive Minnitt, Phil Malpas,

Tuscany has been a favourite destination with Light & Land clients for over a decade now. It is a region with fabulous photographic opportunities – the sculptural cypresses, the picturesque, gently decaying buildings scattered - as if by an artist’s hand - across the softly rolling landscape and the beautiful Renaissance architecture of jewel-like cities such as Pienza and Siena. It feels almost as if five hundred years ago a group of Italians sat down and decided that they would make...

The Rocky Mountains are among the most spectacular ranges on the planet. In the state of Colorado, they are rivalled only by the Canadian Rockies in terms of beauty and sheer size.  We will explore lakes, rivers and summits surrounded by one of the great colour displays in nature, aspen trees in the fall.

Isle of Harris

£1825 - Fully Booked 02nd May - 08th May 2016 Tutored by - David Ward,

The west coast of Harris has some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery to be found anywhere in the British Isles; white shell-sand beaches give way to turquoise seas and distant views of craggy mountains. It is perhaps no bad thing that the weather here is cool and changeable and the summer months often made hellish by the West Highland midge. Without these discouragements the island would undoubtedly be covered in hideous high-rise hotels, the beaches smothered in sun worshippers and the bays...

Cornwall Coast - A Leading Lights Tour

£1595 - Fully Booked 05th May - 09th May 2016 Tutored by - Antony Spencer, Joe Cornish,

Cornwall is England’s coastal county, a place of ancient trade, Arthurian myths, mining history and, for many of us, fond holiday memories from childhood. At the vanguard of Britain’s westerly maritime climate, its rugged northern shoreline distills the wildness of western Europe’s Celtic fringe. The geology is both varied and amazing, offering the landscape photographer enough challenges for many lifetimes. The May 2016 Leading Lights workshop is based in Sennen Cove, an...

It is hard to imagine a better backdrop for a colour printing workshop than the Cumbrian Lake District at the height of autumn. And there is nowhere in the Lake District to surpass Borrowdale, that narrow defile that drains into Derwent Water, the queen of England’s lakes. Borrowdale’s woodland is mixed and extensive, and while every autumn is different, the colour of the landscape is always a feature at this time of year. Even in heavy rain it is possible to find photo opportunities,...
