We start in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, and have a number of days to explore the fascinating towns of the Kathmandu Valley. This is the historic religious, cultural and administrative centre of the country.
We explore the city of Kathmandu as well as Pashupati. Boudhanath and Patan. These towns are fascinating and have ancient squares, Buddhist stupas and palaces. The Kathmandu Valley is a thriving and bustling place and we will be able to photograph a number of historic buildings as well as some of the incredible people of Nepal.
From Kathmandu we move on to the ancient town of Bhaktapur to explore its own UNESCO listed Durbar Square. Leaving the more bustling towns, we head on to the atmospheric village of Nuwakot to have our first experience of rural Nepali life.
We then drive to the remote and well-preserved hilltop settlement of Bandipur, set on a high ridge to explore the preserved buildings and local countryside.
Proceeding on to Lake Begnas,we will have time to explore the lake as well as preparing for our mini-trek. This is a part of the so-called Royal Trek - and takes us along trekking paths, through some tiny villages where we will get the chance to interact with and photograph local villagers. The trek has stunning views and passes through a lot of interesting rural scenery.
We spend an overnight camping before trekking onwards to a vehicle, where we proceed to Pokhara. We have time to explore Pokhara before returning to Kathmandu.

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 three tours available, but are busy working on more itineraries:
assignment: Holi 2020
The first of our new series of assignment: tours will see us returning to the vibrant and colourful Indian festival of Holi. Our assignment: tours will emulate the way that a professional photographer would approach a commission. They will be hard work, and in the case of Holi, crowded and messy, but will represent a great way to approach a particular festival or place. As well as covering Holi in incredible depth, we will also look for tigers in Ranthambore and photograph the Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset. To see more click here.
Impressions of Madagascar 2020
Madagascar is rightly famous for its wildlife, being the only place in the World where you can see lemurs in the wild, but there is a lot more to see here too. We have created a fantastic blend between wildlife, landscape and culture, including visiting the remote protestant village of Soantanana, the Avenue of the Baobabs and the Tsingy de Bemhara. We have made a few changes from our previous itinerary: most notably travelling to Ifaty in the South to photograph the entracing 'dancing lemurs' as they leap across the ground between trees.

Impressions of Namibia 2020
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.
