Conservation Photography Holidays
My conservation photography holidays are designed to allow you to get involved and be part of important initiatives to help wildlife conservation and communities. Furthermore you experience the incredible privilege of photographing amazing creatures and documentary style images of conservation teams.
Why a Conservation Photography Holiday?
My portfolio of conservation photography holidays and expeditions have been developed to offer outstanding nature experiences, stunning photography opportunities and award-winning support from first enquiry till long after you arrive home.
As wildlife photographers, we are all guilty of taking more than giving to conservation efforts. I believe we need to give back and support in saving endangered species and environmental causes.
That’s why, part of my 2020 vision, I only run trips to established conservation projects.
Although, heavy focused on photography, you’ll be hands-on with a sense helping the conservation teams at the projects. However, you will gain a huge sense of satisfaction, knowing you’ve directly supported nature and communities, whilst taking fantastic photographs.
What to expect from a Conservation Photography Holiday
I’ve partnered with Oyster, A leading conservation travel specialist. Their team have a wealth of both ecological and travel experience. Furthermore, each project we visit has been experienced, nurtured and supported by the team.
Initially, contact will be with myself or via the booking form on the website. I will then introduce you to the Oyster team, who will handle your booking, payments and travel arrangements.
However, I will also be available to ensure you have everything you need and everything is you expect.
Your Conservation Photography Holiday
Each journey starts with meeting myself at the destination airport or meeting point.
You will then transfer to your accommodation, whereby an evening meeting will occur to outline the rest of your holiday.
I will be on hand 24 hrs per day for the duration of your time with us.
During some of the holidays, for instance, South Africa, you will have ‘free days’ whereby you can could try your hand at a new skill in the community. Alternatively, you could visit the nearest town for some sightseeing or relax on the beach.
Together, Oyster and myself have have hand-picked the most amazing conservation projects that will allow you to make a difference, whilst taking some beautiful photographs.
There are huge concerns regarding single use plastic, the state of the oceans and how much rainforest is left for the world’s orangutans. At times, wildlife photographers, can be guilty of taking more from nature than giving to it. I believe we need to give back and support endangered species and environmental causes.
Therefore, during my conservation expeditions, you must be prepared to give back and get involved with the project you visit. The tasks are not overwhelming and are suitable for all abilities.
However, you will be expected to get hands on with tasks such as habitat regeneration, rehabilitating animals, tree planting and wildlife tracking. Of course, while constantly having a camera with you to document conservation.
Together, we can make a contribution to the preservation of our planet.
Leading each of our carefully planned nature photography tours will be myself. I will be on hand to help on composition, lighting & equipment, as well as, ensuring you have a focus on key species. Animals such as Orangutan, Asian Elephants, and Africa’s Big 5.
Additionally, I will offer as much one-to-one tuition as possible whilst out in the field. During the evenings, I will be more than happy to help you with post-processing your images.
