In 2021 Easter, join us in a photo tour in majesty's lands.

The Lake District is a region and national park in Cumbria in northwestern England. A popular destination for British photographers, yet unknown to photographers in other parts of the world, it is known for its glacial lakes and rugged mountains.

This region is characterized by its country side, mountains with snow-capped peaks, and green fields. It is typically countryside style, with a fabulous natural beauty for landscape photography.

 

After 4 nights on the lakes we will depart for Snowdonia, which is located in the northern part of Wales. In a certain way, with many similarities to the Lake District landscapes, wich is a great complement to our photography tour, keeping the same kind of record.

We will stay in this region for 3 nights, where we will enjoy to explore and photograph its beautiful landscapes.

 

This is surely a great photographic trip for all photography lovers.

FAQs

What support will I have from photographic leaders?
Be aware that the leaders are not tour guides. However, by the knowledge of the places, they will provide the historical information related that they are aware of. The main job of the leaders is the organization of the trip, the management of the times and routes so that all can be in the right place at the right time. They will be 100% of the time with the participants.
Will I have some photographic support of the leaders?
A photo trip is not like a workshop where leaders are totally focused on the participants. In this trip, the leaders will photograph side by side with the participants, and share with the group the frames, composition and settings. They will be available to help those who need it.
The program mention that the transportation are included, will I have to drive?
No. All driving is assured. You just have to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the landscape.
The flight is not included in the package, but can I request photo details some booking help regarding my flight?
