To offer immersive adventures that get you closer to the action, using your camera as a passport.



We bring together small groups of discerning 40 to 60-somethings, 98% travel solo and we are 5***** rated on Trustpilot, Facebook and Google reviews. And 65% of our guests repeat book, some as an entire returning group, which we are mighty proud of.



Our trips are about finding authenticity, using your camera as a 'way-in' to get behind the scenes. Smartphone or SLR, we’ll show you individually how to capture the essence of the country you're in. From going backstage at a homeless circus in Cambodia, sleeping in a monk’s temple in Japan, to exclusive access to the famed National Ballet School in Havana, we curate hard-to-replicate experiences across 4 continents.


“We’re looking at the next phase in travel; luxe boutique hotels, gourmet food and locations to die for. This is not a technical photography course; it’s cool, creative, funny, quirky, high-end and the guys that run it really know how to create great holidays. Definitely try it.”

No tech.

Buttons. Dials. Snoozefest. Of course - SLR or smartphone - you'll learn to use your camera like it's second nature, but what's most interesting about photography is you. We'll draw out your creative side you likely never thought you had, and guide you to make images that really capture the moment. (And with the pandemic behind us, the creative tools we show you are also great for mindfulness, boosting your wellbeing and reducing stress).


“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.”

Hassle free.

We take care of everything, so you don't have to. All you have to do is turn up. Help on flights, extensions, visas, jabs, food? No problem. Our UK-based pros know every nook and cranny - and just 20% secures your spot, 100% refundable up to just before the trip - no questions asked. This is hassle free travelling.


Not for tourists.

Our immersive experiences range from 5-day short haul Escapes to long haul 10/11-day Retreats. Imagine partying at the most remote festival in the world in Bhutan, meeting a living goddess in the backstreets of Kathmandu or getting a reading from the Maharajah's palmist in India? We take you behind the scenes and then some - so you feel more traveller, less tourist.


Ready. Steady. Go.

It's just 20% to secure your spot, then the remainder just 56 days before takeoff. We'll send out packing tips, help with visas, jabs, money and more, put you in touch with fellow Escapers on WhatsApp and get your individual requirements for the tour - no two trips are the same. Then it's off to the airport to start your Creative Escapes adventure.
