Steve's Impressions of India trip did everything it said on the tin and more. Not only did I get to see some of the most incredible sights, I've got spectacular photos to prove it. The combination of an intrepid tour guide with local knowledge and Steve's travel experience and photography instruction made it stand out from other trips I've been on. In three weeks I managed to go from complete beginner to competent user. SLR's not needed!

The Better Travel Photography range of travel photography tours are bespoke photographic holidays, designed and led by Steve Davey, drawing on his years of experience and intimate knowledge of some of the most fascinating and evocative parts of the planet.
These travel photography trips will benefit your photography in a number of ways. Firstly you will be exploring some of the most incredible and photogenic parts of the world on a tour designed around photography and maximising the photographic opportunities. You will also be in the company of other keen photographers, benefitting from their enthusiasm and experience and certainly not look down upon for wanting to spend time taking pictures. Lastly you will benefit from the expert tuition and encouragement from Steve Davey - a professional travel photographer. Steve mixes nightly illustrated talks, personal tuition and practical demonstrations so you learn more about travel photography than you ever thought possible.
As Steve is trying to juggle his professional and family life with running these tours we are only planning three departures a year. The key for these trips is coming up with unique and stimulating travel photography experiences, so the itineraries and destinations will regularly change. Our current range of tours is below.

Impressions of Jordan
Our final tour of 2013 will be an entirely new destination for us: Jordan! Jordan is an incredible country that is steeped in history: walking down the siq that leads to the ruins of the city of Petra, it is impossible not to be struck by the history and imagine the Roman legions that fought their way down here to take the city. Yet Jordan is about more than history and this trip takes in some of the stunning desert scenery at Wadi Rum, the Red Sea at Aqaba and even a dip in the Dead Sea. To see more click here.
Impressions of Ladakh
In July 2013 we will be returning to the high altitude region of Ladakh in Northern India and the literally breathtaking Korzok Gustor. This ancient monastery festival happens alongside the remote Lake Tsomoriri, and features masked Cham dancing and attracts Chang-pa nomads from all over the region. Ladakh is a fascinating region: more Tibetan than Indian. We will visit ornate monasteries, ruined palaces and drive through stunning mountain ranges, including along the fabled Leh-Manali Highway. We finish our trip by catching one of India's narrow gauge 'Toy Trains' on our way back to Delhi.
My trip to Morocco with Steve Davey was truly inspirational and one of the best I have ever been one. Steve gave me a great insight into what it takes to be a great travel photographer. He willing shared his expertise with all the group throughout the day whilst we took photographs and gave talks most evenings. Personally, Steve has help me improve my photography both technically and artistically – I particularly remember him pointing out a great photo opportunity in Casablanca which he taught me to anticipate and take the photo I want rather than missing the opportunity. Steve is a very charismatic and funny guy who is great fun to travel with - I would definitely travel with Steve again!
