Highland Spring Mini - 2017

10th - 14th May - tour leader - Gordon Rae

A mini photographic tour designed to give you a taste of some of the wildlife that can be found in the Highlands.
On your tour we plan to photograph Osprey diving for fish at Rothiemurchus, visit Chanonry Point to see the Bottlenose Dolphins, travel out to the moors in search of Red Grouse, visit other sites around the local area in search of other opportunities.
Included in your package will be four nights B+B accommodation, plus all transport around the Highlands.

The cost of your Mini Break will be £425 per person, a deposit of £75 will secure your place (3 places available)



Highland Special - 2017

1st - 7th July - tour leader - Gordon Rae

This tour is designed to be a full on action packed week focusing on one of the Scottish Highlands most iconic birds, the Osprey, they travel here each year to breed and rear their young before returning back to warmer climates again.
During your tour we will have exclusive use of the purpose built hides at Rothiemurchus for three early morning diving sessions plus at least one evening session (we will most likely be able to visit the hides for the other two nights as well but I can't arrange that until nearer the time)
Each client will also have the opportunity to visit a perched set up where a fish is placed out each day for the Osprey to come down to feed, this gives a very different type of shot which is great for varying your portfolio of Osprey images.
Plus for each client a visit up to Chanonry point to see the Bottlenose Dolphins, which can put on a spectacular show on a good day.
Included in your package will be six nights B&B (on a twin room sharing basis) in a very well equipped bungalow near to Glenfeshie, this is only a short distance from Aviemore.

The cost of your tour will be £1050 per person, a deposit of £185 will secure your place. (6 places available)



Going Wild for a Week - 2017

7th - 14th July - tour leader - Gordon Rae

Join Gordon for a relaxing week in the Cairngorms National Park, photographing Pine Marten, Osprey and much more.
Included in your tour will be 7 nights B+B (4 places available)


Osprey Splash - 2017

14th - 15th August - tour leader - Gordon Rae

On this tour you will have two morning and two evening sessions in the water level hides at Rothiemurchus, it will be here where we aim to photograph the Ospreys as they dive from a great height to pluck a fish from the lochen to take back to the chicks. This is an amazing sight to witness let alone photograph.
We may also be lucky enough to witness the chicks arrive at the lochen to try their luck at fishing before they head off on their long journey to warmer climates.

NB/ This tour has NO B+B accommodation included in the package.
The cost of your tour will be £425 per person, a deposit of £100 will secure your place. (7 places available)



Island Photographic Holiday - 2017

Tour 1 - 30th Sept - 5th Oct. - leaders - Gordon Rae & Val Gall
Tour 2 - 7th Oct - 12th Oct. - leaders - Gordon Rae & Val Gall

This is a unique opportunity to join us on an Island just off Scotland's west coast for a photographic holiday with a difference.

Val Gall who lived on the Island for a number of years has helped pull this trip together, her in depth knowledge of the area and the wildlife that lives within it will be invaluable to us during our stay.

On the trip we will be working totally in the wild, so it will be a chance for you to test your field craft skills, and at the same time learn a bit about the behaviour of the different subjects that you will be photographing.

Our holiday has been timed to centre around the annual Red Deer rut, that along with the Islands growing population of Otters, Seals, and other wildlife opportunities that can be found along the way should all in all make for a great four days photography.
There will also be, if the weather is in our favour a chance for some lovely landscape shots around the Island.

Included in your package will be five nights B+B (all rooms booked as single occupancy) plus all transport around the Island.

The cost of your holiday will be £500, a deposit of £85 will secure your place (4 places available)


PLEASE NOTE :- If you want to come on a holiday and fill endless memory cards with images this is maybe not the trip for you.
This trip is all about enjoying the experience of finding and photographing wildlife in it's own environment and the field craft required to help get you the shot.


2018 Season

There will be a number of New Tours and Workshops announced for the 2018 season.


Please Note
The animals and birds that we aim to photograph on our tours and workshops are wild and have a mind of their own. Although we study and generally understand their behaviour, their daily routines and sightings cannot be guaranteed. Please bear this in mind if you choose to book with us.
