Light, Land and Sea offers cultural photographic tours and instructional workshops in various European destinations.

Join us to photograph some of the most beautiful locations, both well known and special “hidden gems”. In each location we will be there to help you find the best angles from which to shoot and if you desire, to aid you in your photographic decisions, from composition to lens choices, shutter speeds to filters.  The level of help you receive is entirely up to you.

Workshops – these are shorter than our tours and focus exclusively on visiting breath-taking locations and shooting them well. You will receive hands-on photography instruction in every location as well as having a post processing and image review session.

Tours – these are longer and while they also focus on visiting beautiful locations and shooting them well, in addition, we will also provide you insight into the heritage and history of these locations.  We believe that getting to know places in this way affects your reaction to them and results in photographs with more depth and intensity.  The hours between will be peppered with cultural activities such as local entertainment, whiskey and wine tastings, cultural performances and authentic cuisine.

Our tours and workshops are aimed at everyone interested in photography, from the average ‘Point & Shooter’ who would like to learn to take better photos, to the experienced photographer looking for ways to refine his or her craft.

Sign-up here to be notified first about tour dates and details and to receive other occasional news and offers from Light Land and Sea.
