Who are Chasing Light Tours?
Chasing Light Tours Ltd is a photography tour and workshop company based in Derry, Ireland. The company is owned and operated by Tyler Collins Photography, a professional photographer and photo educator. Tyler leads photo workshops throughout Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Norway and Italy. Tyler is also certified in Rescue & Emergency Care Level 3, a program that equips individuals with advanced skills and knowledge to handle emergencies and perform rescue operations. He is also currently working towards his Hill and Moorland Leader certification.
Tyler’s passion for photography began in March 2013, when he took his first photograph. Despite initially struggling to understand the camera, he quickly fell in love with the art form and spent as much of his free time as possible taking photographs. In 2016, he moved to Arctic Finland to work as an Aurora Guide, where he developed a passion for teaching and guiding.
From 2017 to 2020, Tyler ran a successful photography tour company under his own name, leading tours throughout Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, and Norway. However, the arrival of Covid-19 severely impacted his business, resulting in all work for the remainder of 2020 and 2021 being cancelled.
In response, Tyler decided to rebrand away from his name setup Chasing Light Tours Ltd. He is committed to keeping his workshops and tours small and personal, and ensures that customers always deal directly with him from the initial inquiry through to the completion of the workshop or tour. As a result, his tours and workshops offer a unique, personalized experience.
Each photography workshop and tour is carefully planned to ensure that participants are in the right place at the right time and receive the support and guidance they need to create stunning images. Tyler is dedicated to providing an affordable, enjoyable, and educational experience for all of his customers.
Chasing Light Tours Ltd is unique in that it offers small group tours, limited to only five participants. This allows for ample one-on-one time with Tyler and ensures that everyone has plenty of space to set up their tripods and equipment. Tyler is committed to giving 100% on every tour and workshop he leads, and only offers a small number of tours each year to ensure the highest quality experience.
