Light and Land celebrate the big 25
“In 25 years of assisting our guests with their photography, we have taken great delight in seeing a network of communities being established and enduring friendships formed with photography and its immense potential being at their core.”
Back in 1993, when acclaimed photographers Charlie Waite and Sue Bishop joined their mighty photographic knowledge and passion to create a unique tour company, Light and Land, neither could have imagined the success that would follow.
Fast forward 25 years and following over 1000 tours to more than 40 countries with many thousands of delighted customers, Light and Land is delighted to be celebrating its 25th year in 2018 with many specials events taking place!
Charlie and Sue are teaming up again in May to lead a special tour to Tuscany (where it all began) for a group of lucky competition winners. This promises to be a wonderful tour with amazing photographic opportunities, we can't wait to see some of the group members’ images from this up coming trip.
Light and Land has also introduced some fascinating new tour locations to explore and photograph for 2018, including Macedonia, Romania, Morocco and Aarhus - Denmark.

Light and Land is also delighted to announce that it will be holding an exhibition at the OXO Gallery situated on London's South Bank 18th-22nd July 2018. This will feature images from our tour leaders including Charlie Waite, Sue Bishop, Joe Cornish, Valda Bailey, Doug Chinnery, Antony Spencer and many more. It’s a celebration of Light and Land's 25th Anniversary, and those who have contributed to its success. During the exhibition there will also be the opportunity to take part in one day workshops and attend inspirational talks by our leaders.

A few words from our clients:
"I really enjoyed the Hebrides tour. It's such a beautiful part of the country and the tour took us to all of the best bits. Doug and Terry (who stepped in at the last minute) were excellent leaders with good knowledge of the locations and all the techniques required for a really creative workshop. Doug is a born leader/tutor and did an excellent Lightroom/Photoshop session on the last rainy afternoon rounding of a perfect week. Another superb tour with Light & Land".

"Paul and Nathan were superb. They did a very professional job as regards the teaching. As well as that they were very supportive to the group as individuals and as a group. Nothing was too much trouble. They were great fun. I felt that I could ask anything and they would help me. This was my first experience of L&L and it was great! Thank you very much”
ANN HENRY - OCTOBER, 2017
"Creating a website that strongly show cases your work seems like a technical challenge too far for most photographers. Not so after a day's empowering tuition from Adrian, who makes the learning fun".

Loved every minute. Clive and Phil were knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and kind. They are exemplary tour leaders, nothing was too onerous for them. Light and Land are fortunate to have them".
