The next photographic tuition holiday in Tenerife is Mon 22nd - Sat 27th October 2018 (Six nights). Fly home 28th.

You are welcome to join me on a fabulous photographic tutoring holiday in Tenerife, the main and largest Canary Island. I choose the autumn/winter to take these tours to the Canary Islands due to the fantastic light and great weather around at this time of year. Air travel can be incredibly cheap if flying with one of the budget airlines. The temperature is usually around the mid 20c so it’s a great time to travel in comfort and usually warm enough to just wear a short sleeved shirt and shorts. I would always recommend you take something warm to wear for the evening and a good pair of walking shoes.

The accommodation that I recommend offers a half-board option, where breakfast and dinner are included each day. This accommodation is very authentic and does get booked up quickly. Therefore, a couple of other options would be to get an apartment in Playa San Juan, or a hotel in Puerto de Santiago or Los Gigantes. Please contact me for more guidance. A light lunch will be supplied each day, as well as travel to and from each photographic destination and pick up and drop off at Tenerife South Airport.

What will be included?

- A maximum of 4 people on this tour

- Photographic tuition each day (excluding 1 rest day)

- Photoshop workshop

- Tuition will be tailored to each person's ability, from the beginner to the more advanced

- Pick up and drop off service from the Tenerife South airport to accommodation

- Welcome to travel with me in my own vehicle when travelling to each location as part of the package

- Canarian wine & cheese tasting tour

- A light lunch each tuition day

- Boat trip from Masca to Los Gigantes

- 5% discount on total price for couples that book, not to be used in conjunction with any other offer


The schedule below is subject to change depending on the amount of time we stay at each location, weather and time travelling to each destination.

Day One

When booking your flights, please make sure you fly into the South Airport of Tenerife (Aeropuerto Reina Sofia). I will then pick you up from the airport and take you to your accommodation. You will then have the chance to settle in, have some lunch and walk around the town. Depending on the time you all arrive, I plan to give a talk during the early evening on the basics of photography before we start on our week's photographic tutoring tour.

Day Two

At 10am we will set off to El Teide National Park. We will be spending the whole day in the National Park whilst stopping off along the way to take photos. We will be having a late lunch, this will be a picnic that will be supplied. We will stop off at one of the National Park's designated areas for eating. Then we will carry on with some more photography and head back later. If you wish I can stop off at El Teide if you would like to take the cable car to the top of the volcano. This is priced at 27 euros per person when purchased from the office. Tickets can be pre-booked and purchased online for less.

Day Three

Today we will be travelling to Masca. Masca is a small village set in the Teno Mountains. It’s a very picturesque place to visit and this will be an opportunity to take some great photos. This is when you will need your walking boots as we plan to hike through the hills of Masca, taking photos throughout our journey. This is roughly a 3 hour walk, depending on how many times we stop off to take photos. At the end of the hike, we will board a local boat which will bring us to Los Gigantes for our return journey. We will have spent a good part of the morning here and on our return to Los Gigantes we will stop off for some lunch. Later that day, I will be organising a Photoshop workshop where we will be looking at some of the photos that you have taken so far.

Day Four

Day four is a free day for you. You can do whatever you like on this day. You can go swimming, shopping , soak up the warm weather on the beach or even take a bus ride to a different part of the island. The hotel I recommend offers a number of activities and facilities, such as a spa, gym, a small museum, a reading and TV room and even horseback riding, so you will have plenty of options to choose from.

Day Five

After breakfast, we will be heading off to the small fishing village of Playa San Juan. Here we will have the opportunity to capture some scenery along the coastline. There will be some walking involved. This will take us up to lunch time, which will be in the village. After this you will be returning to your accommodation and preparing to leave for El Teide at 5pm. At El Teide we will photograph the sunset and do some night photography in the National Park. You will need something warm to wear for this trip.

Day Six

Today we will be travelling to the north of the island for some Canarian wine and cheese tasting at a local vineyard. The journey will be approximately one hour and a half. We will be stopping off at two locations along the way, Garachico and La Orotava Old Town, for some photographic tuition. As part of the photographic tuition holiday you will have the opportunity to participate in some wine and cheese tasting of products from several Canary Islands. The price of this excursion will be included in the package. There are beautiful views looking out from the vineyard and over the Atlantic Ocean and onto El Teide which will be perfect for us to capture with our cameras. As this is your last day it would be great to go out in the evening as a group for some tapas.

Day Seven

Transfer to Tenerife South Airport.
