A bespoke range of photographic tours, designed and led by travel photographer Steve Davey. These tours draw on Steve's years of experience and intimate knowledge of some of the most fascinating and evocative parts of the planet.
More than a holiday, you will benefit from many picture taking opportunities as well as tailored photographic tuition & encouragement.
Over the past couple of years we have had some good press coverage, including a couple of pieces written by journalists who came along on our launch tester trip.
We will be adding to this section as we get more press coverage.. If you have seen something that we have missed though, please do give us a shout.
For me, the most inspiring of Steve's mantras is his insistence that we must all strive to take a proper photograph, not just a simple, representational record of our travels. This requires an eye for composition, as well as knowing how to get the best from your camera. While significant enhancements can be done later at the computer, we all agree that travel photography means getting out and about – not sitting in a darkened room screaming at Photoshop.

I'm beginning to really dislike Steve Davey. Not because the renowned travel photojournalist isn't a nice chap – he really is – but he has this awful habit of making me keep the strangest of hours.
When my wake-up call comes the next morning, I don't complain – I know the rewards on my camera will be worthwhile. Perhaps Davey is not so bad after all. John White - Metro
So to progress from holiday snaps to real travel photographs, I joined six other budding snappers on a journey through Morocco with travel photography guru Steve Davey. In Marrakech, we may have looked like ordinary tourists but we were pilgrims in search of the holy grail of a well-composed photograph. In Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech's vibrant main square, Steve gave us tips and set us tasks. Street performers, singers, snake charmers and jugglers Ð all were suddenly potential photographs!
