Photography Holiday Experiences in Colombia, Ethiopia, Greece, Morocco and the UK
Welcome to Responsible Photography Holidays
If this is your first visit, welcome to the world of Responsible Photography. If you are returning, it's great to welcome you back! Responsible Photography is a tiny independent 'collaborative and participative' photography enterprise, founded by Gail Ward. The aim is to be ethical, fair and credible, to share different photography experiences and to contribute directly to people's livelihoods, communities, conservation, educational and local projects.
Responsible Photography holidays are photography experiences for just three to five/ six participants and include Colombia, Ethiopia, Greece, Morocco and the UK. As well as enjoying your photography, you'll get an exceptional firsthand experience of the culture and way of life. You'll need to be reasonably fit, adventurous, easy going and fun! Be prepared for some early starts, exploring off the beaten track - both 'on' and 'off piste' (another way of saying bumpy roads!), and the ocassional long day travelling from A to B.
Responsible Photography holiday experiences are made all the more special by Gail's enthusiastic parthers, guides and special friends who love to co-host and share personal insights into their homeland - and you'll find they are keen to find out about your lives and homelands too.
Guidance and help with your photography is structured around individual ability and interest. To make sure a responsible photography holiday experience is right for you, talk through your expectations with Gail. Also have a look at some of the lovely feedback received from participants and some of their photographs. 'Word of mouth' is the most credible recommendation, as is the fact that people have participated more than once - even joining the same photography experience twice (that's what happens when you really want that elusive shot!).
If you are really new to the hobby of photography and would like to learn more then one option is to join Gail and have fun with your camera on a beginners photography holiday in either Greece, Morocco or Great Britain where you'll get instruction, workshop sessions and lots of help. There are also workshops and weekends in the UK which are less strenuous and offer different photo-study experiences, in a relaxed and informal environment. These are run by Gail and Associate Photographers who share similar values and working principles.
Responsible Photography Holidays Slideshow
At Responsible Photography ™ we care not only about your experience and your photography, but equally about the impact we all have on the people we meet and the places we visit. We try to stay in small guesthouses, family owned lodges or village run accommodation because this is not only a wonderful way to really experience the way of life, but more importantly, contributes directly to communities and helps towards peoples' sustainable livelihoods and jobs - read about how 'we share because we care'.
Gail is a
'working' photographer - her website is www.gailwardphotography.co.uk, and founder of Responsible Photography - supporting photography campaigns, education,
photo-study and photo projects for people of different ages and
abilities (see www.responsiblephotography.org).
She leads just a very small number of
photography holidays each year which most people hear about through
'word of mouth'. If you would like to participate please get in touch
with Gail to find out more. Please check and book as early as
you can as places are strictly limited to 3-5/6 participants, depending
