A Photography and Wildlife Tour

18th to 25th May 2019

Join professional wildlife photographer Steve Race on a wildlife photography trip of a lifetime to the wildlife rich Shetland Islands.

The Shetland Islands are situated on the northern extrimity of the British Isles. A remote archipelago of over 100 Islands, much of it lying beyond 60°N. A land where the summer sun barely dips below the horizon and the scenery and wildlife combine to create an inspiring and unforgettable experience, it is a place that few people visit only once…

Imagine yourself; thrilling at the spectacle of Killer Whales hunting seals, in a boiling swell below towering cliffs… enthralled as you track a family of wild otters as they go about their daily business along a beautiful and remote stretch of coastline… and then later that day marvelling at the intensity of life in one of our bustling seabird colonies.

In partnership with Shetland Nature this unique 8 day photography holiday is designed to showcase the very best of Shetland and its incredible wildlife. This small group tour features a range of photography assignments co-led throughout using the expertise and local knowledge of two Shetland Nature guides and wildlife photography tips and techniques from Steve Race. Shetland has so much to offer from purpose built bird hides, Gannet feeding frenzy boat charter, Otter photography, seabird colonies, moorland waders, to Red-throated Divers. By working a group rotation we are able to pair guests off so that guests experience a level of exclusivity throughout the trip.
