Better Travel Photography was created by Steve Davey to celebrate the art of travel photography and to help people improve their travel photography skills and get more out of their travels. Some of the highlights of the site are image galleries, travel photography features and 501 Travel Photography Tips. This site also features Steve's exclusive range of travel photography tours.

Not everyone has the time or money to travel overseas to learn photography so we have launched an exciting range of London-based photography courses. These won't be a quick two hour dash around in the middle of the day, but will feature small groups and have instruction from named professional photographers at some of the best hours of the day for photography.

These exclusive photography workshops are the result of Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman's many years as professional photographers and their long-running collaboration on the BBC's Unforgettable series of photography books, having photographed Unforgettable Places to See & Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die. These titles have sold half a million copies and have been translated into some thirty foreign language editions. In the course of two frenetic periods they travelled to 80 incredible locations!

You can benefit from this wealth of experience by joining Steve or Marc on one of their unique courses, to develop your photography skills before that special trip, or in order to improve your photography to shoot better pictures at home.

Using their years of experience in photography, Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman have developed a comprehensive range of photography courses based in the incredible city of London.

Use the tabs on the right to see the information pages, more about Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman and of course to visit the individual courses pages.

The course by date tab has the courses arranged by course date, and the tutors tabs list the courses taught by each tutor and gives more information about their work.

If you are interested in creating your own bespoke course, whether for your work or a group of friends or a camera club, then there is more information on the bespoke workshops tab.
