Most companies like to think they are different. But honestly, back in 2007 when we set this company up, we did so because we thought we could offer contemporary, creative holidays instead of stodgy, learning seminars. So that’s exactly what we did. And judging by the number of escapees who choose to return, we think we’re on the right track.

Fun, adventurous, intelligent kinds. In fact, many of our guests have made friends for life on our trips, about which we are mighty proud. And word seems to be spreading; we’ve had guests from all over the world, from Seattle to the Maldives to Rochdale.

All of the creative elements to our holidays assume little or no prior knowledge. That way, our experts can fill in the gaps, break new territory and confidently achieve a new creative you. That said, if you’ve got a little more experience, that’s fine too. Our unique TailoredTeaching method allows us to teach you individually, regardless of your skill level. We’ve welcomed guests who’ve just purchased their camera the day before the trip, all the way to someone with decades of experience. Each we’ve led to collecting images they never thought they could take.

No problem at all. Our team regularly work in leading travel & lifestyle magazines, so we know the inside track to all the places we visit, including the other stuff in the region we couldn’t fit in. In fact, give us a bell and we’ll help you craft your unique itinerary.

Sweet dreams are guaranteed. We’ve scoured our destination notebooks, pillow-tested the collection and hand-picked our favourite hip hotels – from the luxe-colonial governors mansion in Cambodia to the Harpers-voted ‘blissed-out haven’ outside Marrakech – that each retain the essence of the region.

We get just as excited as you before we go away, so prior to leaving, we’ll keep you regularly posted with plenty of info. And to keep you on the straight and narrow before your photography holiday, we’ll send you a small, personal guide containing all the information you need to prepare you for your photography tour.

We really hate trips with lots of hidden costs, so we price it pretty simply. All professional tuition, plus transfers, breakfasts, materials, tours and guiding is included in the price.

We’ve hunted down the locals favourites in every haven we visit, so you can be sure you’re eating the best, organic cuisine on offer. So, whether you are dining under the stars on the rooftops overlooking Havana, or tucking into a delicious three-courser cooked by your personal chef in Kerala, you’ll be sure our nightly socials can’t be experienced anywhere else.

Small groups aren’t small if they have 20 people in them. At Creative Escapes, we pride ourselves of having the smallest guest to tutor ratio in the market – 10:1 – so you can be sure you’re buying a small, personalised experience rather than a follow-the-umbrella group tour.

We source and recommend the cheapest flight options that fit with our schedule, and upon arrival, our team will be there to pick you up and whisk you off for your photography holiday. From arrival to departure, we’ve thought of absolutely everything, leaving you to kick back and enjoy.

The fun’s not over! You’re automatically a member of our Escapology club, meaning an open invite to tons of fun stuff, including our annual summer party, free classes to keep your skills up, day trips to cool places, free talks by super talented creatives and a first notice on everything we do.
