amazing journeys + incredible photography

Your photography is as unique as your way of learning – and we don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to teaching. We get to know you one-to-one, working with you to get the very best from your camera in the world’s most stunning photographic locations.

Paul’s tailor-made, private photography expeditions are focused on giving you the most authentic travel experience as you journey together across some of the most incredible photographic destinations on the planet.

Using only the very best luxury hotels and transportation on offer, our all-inclusive approach means you spend the most possible time in each location followed by the highest levels of relaxation in-between shoots. We’ve revolutionised the way that photographic workshops are delivered – with nothing to worry about from the moment you first arrive, through to our final goodbyes – all you need to bring is your camera and a sense of adventure.

explore the world, in a truly unique way

Having spent over 20 years travelling the world for high-end commercial clients, Paul’s passion for adventure combined with his skills as a photographer make him ideally placed to plan the perfect tailor-made trip for you and your camera.

Working directly with Paul, together you’ll create a complete itinerary for the destination of your choosing. Whether it’s for a solo trip, as a couple, or a group of friends, we’ll help find the perfect balance of locations, seasons and adventures to get you to the heart of the action, capturing the essence of each place you visit along the way.

you’re in control, we do all the work

Way before your private workshop begins, we’re pulling everything together with meticulous planning – and that includes backup locations, alternatives for weather, and extra shoots if they’re possible in each destination based on how you’re feeling at the time. Unlike with a group or fixed workshop itinerary, with us, you really are in control.

Travelling with only you, decisions that suit your needs can be made fast. No waiting for others, no ‘boring locations’, just an entire photography trip focused around the things that matter to you. You’ll return with new skills, unforgettable memories, and amazing photographs which will fill you with pride every time you get to say “I took that!”

learn from the best, designed for all levels

As an expert in his field, Paul’s landscape and travel photography is used by some of the top brands around the world – from National Geographic, to luxury hotel and travel groups, to some of the largest media companies in the industry. Paul’s roles as a Phase One Ambassador and SanDisk Storyteller ensure he’s experienced in teaching at all levels of ability with great success, whether you’re just starting out with a new camera system or already an accomplished professional.

an experience like no other

You can expect the best experience, the maximum possible dedicated time with Paul and an unforgettable journey along the way.
