Both novices and experienced photographers will find something special from my photography tours. Hand crafted itineraries based on my personal experience in the regions and collaboration with boutique travel operators. The expeditions are designed to make the most of photographic opportunities along the journey, but also allow time to share knowledge on a one-to-one basis. Specialised notes and a series of instructional themes are included in the package, or simply take the opportunity to learn directly from a professional.
Anyone with a passion for travel or photography will find new inspiration on these adventures. My philosophy of the camera is simple: Go slow, get closer and look for the light.
Each year I run a couple of workshops for very small groups with the help of other photographic mentors like Ian Rolfe and Billy Law. These masterclasses differ from the photography tours by staying in one place for a few days and exploring one theme in great detail.
These are wonderful experiences designed to help you build skills and experience very quickly. They're also a lot of fun an open to any skill level :)

8 is Great
I never want to run a photography tour with more than 8 people, let alone 20 or more. Smaller groups mean less drama, more fun and are infinitely more rewarding. My first responsibility is to ensure every person on my tour gets plenty of my time and advice, plus to ensure we don't ruin a lovely location by dragging a horde of photographers about. Small isn't just good, it's great!
Any of our current itineraries can be scheduled for private groups, many for as few as just 4 people. Have a look at some of our past research trips and unique adventures for ideas on where your camera club or group of friends could customise a photographic adventure...
Ewen Bell's first photography tour was run in 2005 and since then he has maintained a modest schedule of just 4-6 trips each year. Sharing his passion for photography and travel comes together to make the most professional, educational and bespoke journeys available to photographers.
