Thoroughly enjoyed my 5 day tour to Skye with Tyler. The process of booking was easy and communication good. Tyler knew the locations well and was able to chose the best for the day based on the weather forecast. He's an excellent teacher and I learned a huge amount about landscape photography. The proof is the photo I took at the end of the trip in Glen Coe on the way home which I would never have been able to take before the trip. Unfortunately the weather frustrated us a fair bit so there was no chance to do any aurora shoots or astrophotography but these we very much in Tyler's plans. We stayed in Dunvegan which did mean a fair amount of driving each day and perhaps Portree would have been better but our Airbnb accommodation worked well for the group. Already thinking about which trip to do next.....

This was my first photography workshop. I am a fairly novice landscape photographer. I learnt a huge amount very quickly in camera setup and composition. Early hops to catch the sunrise. Tyler was patient and helpful, and easy company. Lots of help after shooting with Lightroom as well. What you get out of this will depend on your experience - if you are very experienced then it will be tips and being taken to good locations, if less experienced then the basics will be covered. I would happily join Tyler again for a workshop. Really enjoyable, thanks.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience in Iceland! Tylerโ€™s expertise has helped me view the process of photography in a completely new light. We saw the Aurora on technically 4 nights, very impressive given the forecast for the week! Thanks so much Tyler for an amazing experience. Will be on another tour in the future!

Great photography tour. Tyler is an excellent tutor when it comes to providing advise on how to improve your photographic skills and composition. He is very attentive to the needs of the participants and always willing to help. The tour will take you to some very nice location for landscape photography. This is not a touristy tour it is made for photographers who like landscape and nature photography. We have been lucky enough to see 4 times the Northern lights, at varied degrees of activity but managed to get some good photography. The tour is fairly fluid in terms of schedule, based on weather conditions and light. Really recommend it for people who want to improve their photography skills, while enjoying rural Iceland.

Great November tour to Iceland. Tyler makes everybody feel included and is free with his advice and tuition so that we all could get the best photographs we could. This is helped by the genuine small group nature of his tours. Time is spent at great locations at the best possible moments. The day starts with sunrise photography but doesn't end at sunset as we had a number of nights photographing the aurora. This is a photographers trip not a rush around to see every possible sight on the itinerary tourist trip. Highly recommended for photographers of all skill levels.

I joined a tour to Iceland in November 2021. It was everything I expected and more. Tyler is a great non-nonsense guide who creates a relaxed atmosphere while using every available minute. I got some great tips here and there that were to the point and will help me in the rest of my picture-making 'career'. This is not a luxury tour and that's fine by me. We arranged our own food wherever we could. Supermarket, gas station, restaurant, whatever was available. Accomodations were comfortable and clean. And most important of all, I returned with many great pictures !!

Tyler's tour of the Lofoten Islands was an incredible experience. If you are expecting 5 star hotels and fine dining look elsewhere but what you do get is real knowledge of the area and some great inspiration to take epic photos. We were lucky enough to see aurora 2 nights of the trip but the rest of the week was spent in some amazing places. Highly recommend Tyler Collins Photography

Been to Norway, Lofoten with Tyler, 7 days of photography, 7 great days in good company. Tyler nows photography and is very will prepared, get us to the right place at the right time, we visited amazing locations, Tyler gives good advies about focusing and composition. Driving on the ice roads is a skill, never felt unsafe for a moment! I would highly recommend booking one of their tours or workshops, you won't be disapointed.

I attended Tyler's Lofoten tour Feb 2020 and what an experience it was. We got some amazing photos and Tyler is a first class guide with great knowledge and experience with conditions being tough he still went out of his way to get the group to locations where others would have just said no it's snowing and subsequently we got amazing winter shots. I would wholeheartedly recommend Tyler as a guide and an expert on Northern lights with such experience and gut feelings which paid off with four nights of aurora activity. Book him now you won't regret it.

I recently returned from a workshop with Tyler at the Lofoten island's. The whole trip from start to finish was excellent. Even when conditions were extremely difficult for photography (2 day snow blizzard), we managed to get fantastic images, if it wasn't for Tylers determination to get us out, I would have stayed in the log cabin with the fire going! Tyler had obviously done his homework regarding sunrise and sunset locations, and due to this we got nice side lighting on each location. We were lucky enough to get aurora 4 nights out of 7 and the last night the sky exploded which put the icing on the cake. Tyler is a perfectionist when it comes to composition and i learnt a lot from him during this trip. If you are lokking a tour where you a going to visit Epic locations, get great tuition and brilliant craic Tylers your man.

I joined Tyler and Steven for the Iceland photography tour back in October 2019. It was my first time in Iceland and I'm glad they were able to show us around the place. They taught me new photography techniques like shooting panorama and the proper settings for capturing the aurora. They also made sure we got to the best locations by planning out the timing of the light and when it's not full of tourists. We also stayed in amazing hotels / hostels. I would definitely book another tour with them.

Although my international photography trips are sold and advertised as tours rather than workshops, that doesn't stop me helping people as much as I can.

One thing I always encourage people to do is to slow down and just observe.  Really observe a scene, watch how the birds are flying, watch what the water is doing, what direction are the clouds moving, how does it look from this or that angle. Only then once you've taken it all in with your own eyes that you can start working a scene to compose an image.

I honestly believe that just slowing down and really working a scene can improve the photographs you create. Obviously being in the right place at the right time plays a massive part along with editing... but just slow down when you get to a location, don't rush your image and don't be afraid to try new things!

One thing that striked me about this location is the small village Gรกsadalur above the cliffs. It was only 2003 that the village became accessible to the rest of the Islands as to get here you've got to go through a tunnel.  Before this, everything was brought in by boat and carted up the hill from the sea!

I've another shot from this location too which looks out to one of the many Faroese islands.

Faroe Islands is known for being wet and windy considering it's located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.  We really lucked out with the weather during the trip, but if there was ever a location that is crying out for wet, windy and miserable locations it's Drangarnir! Unfortunately what we got was "nice" blue skies with no wind.

As landscape photographers, we're always at the mercy of the weather no matter where we go and it can take a few visits to the same location multiple times to get that shot you're truly happy with.

I honestly believe that no photo or video will ever do Faroe Islands any justice.  It has to be seen with your own eyes to appreciate the shear size, beauty and wildness of the place.

Bookings are now open for March 2023.

A cold night waiting for Miss Aurora. She was appearing on camera around 11pm but very very faint. From around 4am she really started to produce the goods!

I love going through my archives looking at older images, reviving those old memories that I thought were gone.

This photo, from 3 years ago I remember it was so windy that the wind would take your breath away, I literally couldn't stand still, I had to ly down on the rocks and balance the camera just to get this photo.

One of the locations we visit on my Isle of Skye Photography Tours - multiple dates available on my website.
