Photography holidays in the UK

Photography holidays are a great opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, learn some new camera skills and take some amazing images to hang on your wall.

Fortunately, you don’t need to leave the UK to find incredible destinations for your trip, and this week we’re going to share some of the best with you.

Photography holidays in the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are so rich in photographic opportunity that it’s no surprise to find family holidays that incorporate photography there. Log House Holidays offer photography course with renowned landscape photographer David Hall, which you can combine with a stay in their luxury lakeside cabins.

You’ll learn how to shoot around the lakes, and take advantage of the stunning wildlife that lives on this Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Northern Lake District through a lens – Derwentwater

This four-day break in the heart of the Lake District is a perfect chance to learn from an expert on landscape photography and take photos ofDerwent water – one of the most picturesque of the great lakes.

You’ll stay in a country house in the heart of the Lake District and walk up to 3 miles each day with your camera, with the chance to shoot everything that makes this part of the UK so special. It’s one of many photography holidays available through HF Holidays, so if it’s not for you, they’re bound to have something you’ll love!

Astrophotography tour at Exmoor National Park

If you fancy something a bit more out of the ordinary, a trip to Exmoor National Park for two nights of spectacular astrophotography might be up your street. Led by Peter Hendrie and Paul Saunders, you’ll learn how to shoot the night sky in all its glory in a part of the UK with the least light pollution.

This trip is perfect for beginners who want to try something new with their photography.

Going it alone

Of course, you don’t need to go on a guided photography holiday to have fun with your camera. The UK is full of brilliant locations that are perfect for a family holiday and photographer. In fact, we encourage you to take your camera with you whenever you have a family break to record the event, but if you’re upfront about wanting some time alone to go and explore you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

There really is nothing better for a camera enthusiast than a photography holiday, and we hope that you share your work with us because a canvas print of your favourite shot is a great reminder of how much fun you had on your trip.
