Photography holidays to inspire the creative in you.

Our hand-built photography adventures across 10 countries worldwide are designed for any skill level, getting you exclusive access to fabulous off-the-beaten track locations, snoozing in plush boutique hotels (and dine in places only the locals know about).

We take care of everything, so you don't have to.

And since we all grow in different directions, you'll mostly be taught 1-to-1; our creative-led tailored-to-you approach means you find your own style quickly, at your own pace - bringing home photographs that really stand out from the pack.

So, join us and other like-minded adventurers on our award-winning, small group, experiential holidays that this year saw a record 65% of our guests come back ...

Travel with confidence.

Your safety, as well as the safety of our employees and partners, has always been our top priority, which is why we are following the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels guidelines to give you peace of mind on our tours.

“Creative Escapes are a good option if you want a dedicated learning holiday. Group sizes are small, meaning there’s more 1-on-1 time with tutors, less competition for spots to shoot from and plenty of supportive group critiques.
Creative Escapes – the name says it all!”

Join a group of like-minded people.

START YOUR JOURNEY

Pick an adventure that suits you.

We have trips to suit all skill levels, across 9 hand-picked countries worldwide.

Our Escape trips are for beginners only – chance to grasp the basics of photography, have a great adventure with like-minded people – and return home with a bag of images that stand out from the pack. 

Our Retreat trips are for all skill levels – time to really learn your camera inside and out, and make a massive change to the quality of your images.

Our Focus trips are for intermediates and up – more challenging photographic assignments to off-the-beaten track locations, time to build a compelling photographic portfolio, in quick time.

START YOUR JOURNEY

Meet the team.

A 20% fully-refundable deposit secures your spot on one of our award-winning holidays, then our team will help you with flights, any trip extensions (we’re experts in each country we visit), visas and more.

Then, your tutor will get in touch, understanding your exact requirements so we can build these into the trip for you – meaning each tour is different from the last.

START YOUR JOURNEY

Ready. Steady. Go.

Our carefully crafted itineraries steer well clear of tourist routes – we spend months not just hand-picking the best shooting locations, but also the inside-track to eat, drink and have fun – the social side of our holidays are just as important as developing your photography skills.

And this starts from picking you up at the airport with a private transfer, whisking you off to your boutique hotel for welcome drinks, starting your holiday in style.

START YOUR JOURNEY

No more ordinary.

In our digital age, it’s becoming harder than ever to see images that stand out from the pack.

On our holidays, we have exclusive access to many locations not normally accessible to tourists, from swirling dancers at the National Ballet in Havana, junior monks chanting in the mountains of Bhutan, to a private temple photoshoot with a Geisha in Kyoto.

START YOUR JOURNEY

Creative-led tuition.

Our creative-led, low tech, personalised tuition means you quickly get to grips with your style of photography, at your own pace.

You’ll try out a range of techniques and styles on location, exploring reportage, portraiture, documentary and landscape – utilising our small group sizes of 8 (and get lots of supportive 1-to-1 time with your professional tutor plus shooting alone time to put it all in to practice).

“Gone are the days when photography holidays meant seeking out Athena poster images of palm-draped beaches or fluorescent cocktails backlit by a golden sunset. On Creative Escapes’ photography tours, you’re not going to end up with hackneyed shots; Instead, the company’s ultra-contemporary trips focus on giving a thorough understanding of cameras and creative techniques by homing in on some of the coolest spots.”
