Photography Tour Overview:
Experience the true essence of England’s photographic diversity with an English Photographer in Devon, Cornwall, the Cotswolds, Yorkshire Dales, and the Lake District. Point a camera at the mixture of ancient and modern contrasts, plus the landscape mosaics of hedgerow, stone wall and patchwork fields in mellow autumn light. Also Stonehenge via an exclusive dawn or dusk permit, Salisbury Cathedral, Gold Hill, Mousehole harbor, St. Michael’s Mount, old tin mines, Glastonbury Abbey, thatched cottages, Chipping Campden, Warwick, Wensleydale, Swaledale, Derwentwater, Castlerigg Stone Circle, Ashness Bridge, Langdale and an old steam train et cetera. As with all of our photography tours, early and late shooting is scheduled for each day.


Our itinerary . . .
But first things first! We suggest that you set your camera's clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.


Day 1  |  The Avebury Standing Stones
We'll gather at our Heathrow hotel mid-morning, and go west on the M4 and then turn south into the 'green and pleasant' English landscape where we can slow down for our first picture opportunities. English villages are notoriously charming and the day's highlight will be Avebury which was built among standing stones. On to our accommodations in Wiltshire for some rest after long flights, with Stonehenge scheduled for sunset on day 1, and/or a sunrise visit on day 2.
Near Stonehenge, 1 night

Days 2, 3 + 4  |  Stonehenge at dawn, plus Devon and Cornwall
Quaint villages near Amesbury are on the morning menu, as is the Gothic Salisbury Cathedral. Then off to Cornwall via the cobblestone and thatch of Gold Hill in Shaftsbury . . . an English classic. On to our central Cornwall accommodations for a 3 night stay. Day 3 will be given to a loop of the Land's End peninsula including Porthleven, St. Michael’s Mount, Mousehole, a coastal tin mine, St. Ives, and more. Day 4 sees us exploring more picturesque coastal communities including St. Mawes, Portloe, Mevagissey and spots in-between.
Cornwall, 3 nights

Days 5, 6 + 7  |  The Cotswolds
We leave the quaint coastal scenes behind today and head for the county of Somerset. There we'll take in Glastonbury Abbey and Wells Cathedral before continuing north to our new home in Cotswold stone country.
Days 6 and 7 will find us shooting around the pretty Cotswold stone villages of Chipping Campden, Snowshill, the Slaughters et cetera, with thatches and charm abounding.
The Cotswolds, 3 nights

Days 8, 9 + 10  |  The Yorkshire Dales
Going north today via more Cotswold scenes we'll take time to explore medieval Warwick, including the classic castle image and the Tudor-framed Lord Leycester hospital. We'll then motor on to our new home in the depths of the Yorkshire Dales . . . a green and gray patchwork of stone barns, drystone walls and rolling hillsides.
Days 9 and 10 will bring a farm visit and Dales vistas smattered with northern English character, sheep and thick Yorkshire accents. This is Herriot the veterinary country, and we'll explore the book and TV scenes of Langthwaite, Askrigg, Aysgarth Falls, the photogenic Walden Beck and much more.
The Yorkshire Dales, 3 nights

Days 11, 12 + 13  |  The Lake District
We'll depart in the morn for Fountains Abbey followed by more Yorkshire Dale scenes as we make our way to the Lake District in Cumbria. The 'Lakes' are the most naturally photogenic area in England and we'll explore it all from our 3 night base. Loop trips will take us to Derwentwater; Ashness Bridge; Langdale; Castlerigg stone circle and Grasmere, where Wordsworth "wandered lonely as a cloud". The "host of golden daffodils" will be gone at this time, but the warm autumn colors will handsomely take up the slack. Sunrises in the Lake District are very moody if the customary autumn mist co-operates, and consequently we'll be out early and late in search of the best light.
The Lake District, 3 nights


Day 14  |  The Lake District to Heathrow
We'll 'mop-up' in the Lake District this morning, and traverse the motorway system with one last detour for a picturesque English village then onto our hotel. The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action on this tour by John.
Near Heathrow airport, 1 night


Day 15  |  Departure day
As there isn't any photography scheduled for the day of departure on this trip, your flight home can be arranged for any time today. Transport to the airport is included unless you’re staying on for a day or more.
