Festivals for something closer to home

You need look no further if it’s a festival you want to photograph; the UK hosts thousands of vibrant events each year, with something to suit every interest and budget. Fancy dress, face painting, crazy hair, performers and much more are often a feature of the festival scene, providing one of the best photography holiday destinations on a budget.

These are a couple of our favourites:

•    Shambala Festival of Music
•    British Beard and Moustache Championship
•    Glastonbury festival
•    Cheese Rolling festival
•    WOMAD festival

New Zealand

New Zealand is a spectacular country to visit if you lean towards taking photos of the natural world; there’s so much choice when it comes to its natural beauty:

•    Rainforests
•    Mountains

•    Wildlife

The Great Barrier Reef

There are two ways you can get great snaps of this Australian ‘wonder of the world’:

•    From a helicopter flying above the reef
•    Underwater photography whilst on a dive or snorkelling

This trip needs specialist equipment, expertise and transport, but would make for a truly once-in-a-lifetime vacation.


India is a photographer’s dream as a holiday destination. It’s a vibrant country which has a mix of beautiful architecture, religious and historical sites, interesting and exuberant citizens and beautiful landscapes. You really are spoilt for choice here.

Barcelona offers a wealth of photo opportunities with its mix of beach, port, architecture, museums and more natural surroundings.

If architecture is your focus, we recommend looking into the works of Gaudi – you’ll find plenty of his buildings here! For street artists and performers, spend a couple of hours on Las Ramblas.

The British seaside

If you want to stay close to home for your photography holiday, the British seaside is the place to go. A couple of places to try:

•    Blackpool for the traditional British seaside, with fairgrounds and lights
•    Devon and Cornwall for a slower pace of life with peaceful landscape photography inspiration
•    Dorset and the Jurassic coast
•    Whitby for its abbey and Goth festival
