The photo tour you are looking for is currently not scheduled. Steve Davey is a professional photographer and writer and so only leads three or four tours a year to balance with his professional and family life. You can see some images from the last time that this tour ran below. At the moment we have a number of other tours available, but are busy working on more itineraries. Please see if there is anything that grabs your interest below, or please do get in touch with any requests or suggestions for future tours:
Impressions of Ladakh 2022
The region of Ladakh is like nowhere else on the sub-continent, with an atmosphere more in common with Tibet, than the rest of India. A high altitude plateau encompassing parts of the Himalayan and Karakoram ranges, the predominent religion here is Tibetan Buddhism. We will visit a number of historic and photogenic monasteries, and through a series of long, but stunningly adventurous drives, we will visit a couple of hidden valleys, crossing one of the highest motorable passes in the World. We have even timed our trip to witness a remote monastery festival and a Polo festival. To see more click here.
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 here.
Impressions of Rajasthan 2022
Nowhere on Earth has as many festivals as India, and we have arranged this exciting photography tour to take in not just one, but two incredible religious gatherings: the iconic Pushkar Mela, and the lesser known Kolayat Mela near the desert city of Bikaner. We also visit some of the most stunning forts of Rajasthan and two of the most evocative desert towns: Bikaner, and the incredible atmospheric living fort city of Jaisalmer. To see more click here.
Impressions of Uzbekistan 2023
Uzbekistan in Central Asia is an entrancing mix of Islamic and post Soviet cultures, with a friendly and welcoming population, embracing some of the best characteristics of both! We will visit the iconic cities of Samarkand and Bukhara, as well as the ancient walled town of Khiva and traditional villages in the beautiful Fergana Valley, photographing mosques, madrassas, ancient forts and plenty of Soviet-era architecture.
