Our upcoming photography holidays

Our photography holidays for singles, couples or friends operate throughout the year, picked when the weather is good - and the very best conditions - for photography tours (and a holiday!)

An absolutely fabulous trip. Jon's enthusiasm is infectious and attention to detail is second to none. It's very evident how much time and thought has gone into planning the tour. Everything from the excellent locations to the hotels and restaurants is clearly carefully planned. Jon's photographic guidance, tuition and suggestions were always welcomed and with his help my photography has greatly improved. Thank you Creative Escapes for a wonderful holiday of photography, food and more

Thank you Jon for an amazing Moroccan adventure! I learnt so much and had such an incredible time! Creative Escapes is a fantastic company, the whole experience was excellent - from initial queries about the trip, throughout the booking process, and of course - the 10 days away. Great balance of photography, learning, and having fun!

Over the last couple of years, I have taken part in a combination of long haul (Cambodia and Kerala), short haul (Morocco and Sicily) and one day UK workshops with the Creative Escapes team. And I can say 150% that I have ABSOLUTELY loved every minute of these experiences. From a photography perspective, you receive fantastic tuition pitched perfectly to where you are at in your development – and always with a big dose of fun and an element of a challenge which I thrive on! Travel wise – you get to immerse yourself in the most wonderful destinations - allowing you to really get under the skin of your surroundings, and so importantly, get to know and engage with the local people.All aspects of the photography retreats are very well organised; spot on attention to detail from the hotels and restaurants to the assignments, reviews and daily activities.A very special part of the trips is the social side. I have made some fantastic new, like-minded buddies through Creative Escapes - genuinely lovely, funny people, with great – and so importantly – varied photography skill sets. You can never underestimate how much you can share your knowledge and learn from each other; an integral part of any CE trip or workshop.The team at Creative Escapes are fantastic and have inspired and equipped me to follow my travel/documentary photography dreams. I am already excited about my next adventure with them, but just where too given their fab array of destinations … that is the big question!read more

I've done both photography holidays and day courses with these guys and I'm consistently blown away by how much I learn and come away with. Their style of teaching is extremely effective and the focus is on helping each person to identify and develop their own personal style. The holidays are extremely well researched and standards are high across the board. I'm booked on another trip soon and can't wait!read more
