Worldwide Photographic Journeys

Our Team

The guide is an important feature of any photographic tour. All Wild Images photography tours are accompanied by one or more professional leaders with the knowledge and experience to make the tour wholly successful. Wild Images leaders know their areas thoroughly and take pride in sharing their photographic knowledge with those who travel with them. Our constant aim is to try and ensure that every participant on our photography holidays has a great time.

Not only are Wild Images guides highly skilled photographers, they are also friendly, competent and approachable individuals who are experts at dealing with the day to day running of the tour, confidently coping with any problems that may arise and so greatly increasing the chance that everything will run smoothly. Leading a photographic tour in Europe or North America is one thing, leading one in a developing country where logistical problems are a fact of life is quite another! We can justifiably claim unrivalled experience in many parts of the world.

The travel organising skills of our office staff and their caring commitment to our clients and friends are second to none. Having such a dedicated and efficient team behind you makes all the difference when it comes to having an enjoyable tour, both before, during and after the holiday.

You can call or email our office at any time and ask us any question you would like to. You are going to find helpful and courteous service, and we always enjoy chatting with actual or potential customers, so if you have any questions at all about any of our photography tours then please get in touch. We want to hear from you!
