Venice is a city steeped in history, culture and romance – with endless photographic opportunities. It is like no other destination: unique and atmospheric. The iconic Basilica in St Mark’s Square, the Opera House, the maze of narrow winding walkways, gondolas gliding along the network of canals and the lovely arched stone bridges which allow you to traverse the floating city. Diversity enough in just this one location but our Photo Roadtrips always offer more. This is no exception.

The West Coast of Ireland - April 2018

The land of coastline, castles and rocky wilderness, this spectacularly diverse part of Ireland is a gift for photographers. From the mountains, forests and lakes of the Connemara National Park to the magnificent beaches and tiny harbours which fringe the wild Atlantic, the scene before you is truly inspirational. Derelict cottages and castles pepper the landscape and we are free to explore en route, stopping wherever and whenever we wish to capture the moment.
