About Full Day Photo Tours
Are you planning a full day of photography in Bath? Or are you visiting Bath as part of a longer trip? Our Full Day Photos Tours are a chance to explore Bath in detail or visit some the many photogenic locations within day-trip distance of the city.
One fascinating destination close to Bath is Lacock, the birthplace of photography. Lacock Abbey was the home of William Fox Talbot, one of the inventors of photography! Lacock is great for a leisurely full-day or as an afternoon visit after a walking tour of Bath.
Other of the many options include a driving tour of Cotswold villages, the Cathedral City of Wells, mystical Glastonbury, picturesque Castle Combe Village, or the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stonehenge.
Our Full Day Photo Tours can include as much or as little instruction as you wish. Possible topics include the basics of composition and color, using aperture and shutter speed priority modes, exposure compensation, tips for architectural photography, off-camera flash, etc. It’s up to you. If you’d like the tour to include photo critique and editing, please bring a laptop or tablet with appropriate card reader and software.
The cost of the tour does not include transport or accommodation, although we are able to arrange a chauffeur driver and suggest hotels. Tours of several days are also available. If you have a trip of several days in mind (for example, Bath and the Cotswolds) please let us know, as we’d be very happy to suggest photo locations and help plan your itinerary.
Please see our TripAdvisor page for photos and reviews from people who have been on the tour.

In addition to countless hours spent roaming and photographing the streets and hills of Bath, he has worked on assignment photographing everything from Arctic ice-flows to Tibetan bee farmers to sumo wrestlers training.
My wife, out 10 year old son spent 3 days with Tony. We did the one day in Bath, second day in Wookey caves, wells and Glastonbury, the 3rd day in the Lacock and more of the Cotswolds. Overall we will owe a future of better vacation pics to Tony. – Mark, US
