Steve's Impressions of India trip did everything it said on the tin and more. Not only did I get to see some of the most incredible sights, I've got spectacular photos to prove it. The combination of an intrepid tour guide with local knowledge and Steve's travel experience and photography instruction made it stand out from other trips I've been on. In three weeks I managed to go from complete beginner to competent user. SLR's not needed!

travel photography tours with steve davey

Travel Photography tours, led by professional photographer Steve Davey, with ATOL protected land arrangements by Intrepid Travel - The Better Travel Photography range of travel photography tours are bespoke photographic holidays, designed and led by Steve Davey, drawing on his years of experience and intimate knowledge of some of the most fascinating and evocative parts of the planet.

"Your love of photography and travel is infectious and I can honestly say I have never laughed or learnt so much on a holiday before!"

This comment from a recent tour more than anything sums up what Steve is trying to achieve with these tours. Yes, we want people to learn as much as possible about photography, but it is also supposed to be enjoyable!

These travel photography trips will benefit your photography in a number of ways. Firstly you will be exploring some of the most incredible and photogenic parts of the world on a tour designed around photography and maximising the photographic opportunities. You will also be in the company of other keen photographers, benefitting from their enthusiasm and experience and certainly not look down upon for wanting to spend time taking pictures. Lastly you will benefit from the expert tuition and encouragement from Steve Davey - a professional travel photographer. Steve mixes nightly illustrated talks, personal tuition and practical demonstrations so you learn more about travel photography than you ever thought possible.

As Steve is trying to juggle his professional and family life with running these tours we are only planning three or four departures a year. The key for these trips is coming up with unique and stimulating travel photography experiences, so the itineraries and destinations will regularly change. Our current range of tours is below.

Impressions of Namibia 2022
Our last trip to Namibia was fantastic, and we have made a few tweaks and improvements for our return. There are some things in this incredible country that you just have to include: sunrise at Dead Vlei, Kolmanskop Ghost Town, and the incomparable floodlit waterhole at Okaukuejo. We include so much more though,and have timed our visit for one of the best times to see wildlife and photograph the stunning landscapes. To see more click

My trip to Morocco with Steve Davey was truly inspirational and one of the best I have ever been on. Steve gave me a great insight into what it takes to be a great travel photographer. He willing shared his expertise with all the group throughout the day whilst we took photographs and gave talks most evenings.  Personally, Steve has help me improve my photography both technically and artistically – I particularly remember him pointing out a great photo opportunity in Casablanca which he taught me to anticipate and take the photo I want rather than missing the opportunity. Steve is a very charismatic and funny guy who is great fun to travel with - I would definitely travel with Steve again!
