Who are Chasing Light Tours?

Chasing Light Tours is operated and run by Tyler Collins Photography. He is a photographer and photo educator based in Derry, Ireland. He leads photo workshops throughout Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Faroe Islands & Norway. 

He also runs a web development company, Able & Flinn.

I still remember the very first photograph I took back in March 2013, I put the camera on full manual mode, adjusted the dials, I pressed the shutter and everything was white. I hadn’t got a clue what I was doing, but I LOVED it. I spent as much of my free time taking photographs. From landscapes to the night sky and everything in between.

In 2016 I moved to Arctic Finland and worked for a season as an Aurora Guide and it was during this time that I really fell in love with with guiding, teaching and the cold!

From 2017 to 2020 I ran a successful photography tour company under my own name of Tyler Collins Photography, leading photography tours throughout Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Norway. With the arrival of Covid-19 the travel industry was turned upside down resulting in my business being severely impacted and all work for the rest of 2020 and 2021 being cancelled.

I decided this was the perfect time to rebrand away from my name as I also use my name for my commercial photography business hence Chasing Light Tours was born.

It is very important to me that my workshops and tours are kept small and personal and that is why from the first time you inquire, book, attend a workshop or tour, you are always dealing directly with me.

I will be your point of contact for any questions you have. I’ll be your guide, your tutor and your driver.

I love photography, driving, guiding and helping others.  I’ve managed to combine all my passions into a successful and enjoyable photography holiday experience for you to enjoy.

Each photography workshop and tour are carefully planned.  Getting you to the right place at the right time, helping you create images and seeing you smile from ear to ear is the best satisfaction I can get.

I want you to enjoy every aspect of the photography tour and it’s the perfect chance for you to get hands-on experience and support from a professional and most importantly I make each trip as affordable as possible.

I only run a small number of photography holidays each year, and you can be assured that I give nothing but 100% on each tour.

What makes my photography tours & workshops unique is just how personal they are.  In my experience, for people to get the most out of the workshops and tours, I limit the number of persons to ONLY 5 this allows adequate one one one time with me if you want and it also means we’re not fighting for a place to set our tripods!

My photography workshops & tours are true small group tours!
