The UK is a great location to combine your passion for photography and a great holiday. There are many companies that will offer you a photography course linked to a holiday. However, many people just want to do their own thing when it comes to photography and a holiday.
A self-catering cottage or lodge is an ideal way to combine a passion for photography, a relaxing holiday as well as being able to appreciate the beautiful countryside landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes on offer throughout the UK.
Coastal cottages – ideal for capturing wonderful seascapes and coastal scenes
Nature photography – Britain has a vast and wide selection of wild life from seabirds to tiny mammals. If that’s not enough, have a look at the wildlife parks, zoos and other attractions shown on the detail page for the cottage you are interested in.
Rich heritage and history – Britain has thousands of years of history with its castles, ancient settlements and historic villages all making brilliant photographic opportunities.
Many tourist locations offer guided tours and walks. These can be a great resources to help you better understand the local area and find the best locations for photographs.
One of the key benefits of a self-catering holiday location is the fact that you have the key to the property and there should be no reason why anyone else is in the property. In addition, a cottage or lodge is much bigger than a hotel or B&B room so you are less restricted regarding how much camera equipment you take.
Do check with your insurance to make sure your equipment is covered as a decent SLR camera and Lenses will cost a lot of money to replace.
