Do you prefer to be in a group of 10 people, or 3-4? Smaller groups mean we have to charge slightly more, but in return you get undivided attention, individual treatment and you are not herded around in a minibus...as our feedback confirms, ensuring that guests get the pictures they want is our priority.
Our Ethos and Ethics
We work in pertnership with local guides and suppliers. It ensures that money goes back into the community and helps to protect the areas we love.
The price at booking will always be the price you pay. We have no hidden costs. We keep our overheads low, ensuring that our holidays are competitively priced, without cutting corners.
Nick is an expert photographer and teacher - with 30 years experience as a professional photographer and 20 years of working with camera and software companies like Canon, Adobe, Apple, Phase One and Miscrosoft on product development and training, he has proven ability and the detailed knowledge of the craft of photography to help even advanced photographers improve their technique and the presentation of their photographs. He was recently asked to become an ambassador for OM SYSTEM cameras.
From camera setup to image processing and colour management, everyone will take plenty of knowledge away from these trips, together with a set of beautiful pictures of birds, wildlife and landscapes.
Our trips are built on a passion for birds, photography and a great deal of hard work, to ensure the best possible experience. Our guests recognise this and we've had some lovely feedback. Here is just some that we have received:
I love taking photos of wildlife. Have done for many years but felt I needed to learn a bit more about getting a better photo. This trip really lived up to the expectations.
The tuition was delivered expertly by Nick who has an obvious passion for photography, wildlife and the environment. Within a few hours my photography had improved immensely
What I really enjoyed about the course was the small group. You got a lot more attention and help than what you would have had in a big group.
Great week of high quality photography mentoring from Nick Wilcox-Brown

Glossy Ibis in a paddy field, contre jour, no lens hood. Sometimes mistakes look better than ‘proper’ pictures. Love the atmosphere of this image taken recently in Spain.
Today was wet, then bright. The Stonechats carried on regardless.
