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.

8 is Great
If you have to share a tour with dozens of other photographers, then it's just a tour instead of a photo tour. 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.
Ewen Bell's other website is called "Photography for Travellers", an online guide rich in features both practical and philosophical. Field guides to wonderful locations, insights into techniques plus inspiring idea to help you think differently about the art of photography.
Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
