About Tripods at Dawn

Tripods at Dawn Holidays for Photographers are run by photographers and friends, Cath Evans & Mike Stephenson. With their knowledge of photography and the locations, they will guide you to the best locations at the best time to capture great images.

These holidays are specially tailored for group bookings, so if you are part of a group of photography friends or a member of a camera club, then why not let us organise and book a holiday for you and your friends to a destination of your choice and for a date of your choosing.

Minimum group size is 4 people and a typical group of this size is often made up of two couples where at least one of each couple is a keen photographer.

Tripods at Dawn Holidays are about getting out there and enjoying photography and stunning scenery with like-minded people. Exploring locations, the camaraderie of photographers waiting for the sun to rise, the rain to stop, the Northern Lights to appear or someone to share a pint with at the end of the day. They are suitable for anyone who enjoys photography and taking landscape photographs. There will be no formal tuition or critique sessions, however feel free to pick their brains as much as you like!! Cath & Mike love photography and are very happy to share their knowledge with you.

Tripods at Dawn holidays are just that...holidays, so if you see something you'd like to have a look at while we're driving along, just say and we'll pull over or try to incorporate it into our itinerary. There will be rest time and depending on the destination, extra holiday activities if you wish.

Both Cath & Mike are very experienced landscape photographers and this has been recognised by their success in numerous and varied worldwide competitions, some of which are listed below.
