” I have been on 3 photography holidays with different companies, and Appleton Photo Training was by far and away the best of the bunch. It was literally dawn to dusk full on photography. Andrew is a very selfless and supportive instructor, he demonstrates techniques and then gives ample opportunity to develop your own ideas. He provided a lengthy one to one feedback session, giving constructive critique of my images.
The holiday was varied and fast paced, ranging from landscape, street photography, dance and fashion models, including one to one with the models. The accommodation and food were excellent. Andrew, together with his support team set a friendly atmosphere, which produced a great team spirit amongst the delegates.
If you want variety, want to take your photography to a higher level and have a great time get yourself on an Appleton road trip, you will love every minute.”
Our Next Trip
Our next trip is to the fabulous West Coast of Ireland to shoot fine art landscape, nude and fashion on part of the Wild Atlantic Way. The trip is fully booked but don’t worry we are going to try and squeeze another visit to Ireland in Autumn 2018. Our May trip to Venice is sold out but we have places on the Fly ‘n’ shoots to Lake Garda and Venice in June. Or how about 9 days in central France this Summer with two fantastic dancers?

Our destinations are Lake Garda and Venice and prices start from under £1000 excluding international flights. And as with all our European Roadtrips we have picked two sensational models.
Georgia Annable is with us in Lake Garda
Tizana Terry is with us in Venice
We have 6 trips scheduled for 2018 including France and Italy Roadtrips, an Italy Fly ‘n Shoot, A South African Safari and Southern Ireland trip.
Spring 2018 Fine Art and Landscape in Southern Ireland
For some time now, people have been asking us for a trip which focuses on fine art photography and one which explores landscape. This Roadtrip is our answer to both. We have chosen the glorious south-west region of Southern Ireland to focus on these two photographic genres because it has some of the most powerful and evocative scenery imaginable. From windswept seascapes to remote inland vistas, the scope for capturing dramatic images is endless. 15-21 April
Spring 2018 Roadtrip To Italy
This will be our third year for this popular photography Roadtrip across France, Switzerland and down into Italy. The journey takes in picturesque lakes and dramatic alpine landscapes with Venice, Padova and Cittadella being three of the key Italian locations. We also shoot in Piazzola Sul Brenta where the imposing Villa Contarini was once home to members of the Venetian aristocracy. Chosen for their range of architecture and cityscapes, these places provide diverse and exciting backdrops for your model and dance photography.
2018 Italy Fly ‘n’ Shoot
If you are looking for a short photography break but you still want diversity, this is for you.
We have two long weekend breaks planned for 2018. The first is to the beautiful Lake Garda in Italy, staying in a 3 star hotel on the northern tip of the lake you will get 4 nights single occupancy accommodation. The second trip is to the Venice area with accommodation in the old city of Padova.
Central France Summer 2018
This nine-day photographic holiday takes full advantage of the rich culture and history of France. As with all our Roadtrips, we aim to give you a truly immersive experience, blending a broad range of genres with a strong and evocative sense of place. You can expect to shoot dance, fashion, lifestyle, travel, landscape and street in locations as diverse as Paris, the Champagne region of Epernay and the medieval city of Rocamadour in the Dordogne Valley.

Autumn 2018 Three Lakes, Two Mountains
Join us on a unique 8-day photographic journey through the breath-taking Alpine landscape of Europe.

There can be few better ways to combine high quality portfolio building with a really enjoyable holiday. 22nd to 30th September
Autumn 2018 South African Photographer’s Safari
This is no ordinary safari. In association with On Track Safaris, here is an exclusive trip aimed specifically at photographers. You will spend 10 nights in 4 star accommodation in the Kruger National Park. As one of only 6 people in the group, you will travel to areas which most sight-seeing tours cannot access and learn bushcraft to help you track down the Big Five and a host of other native creatures. Our facilitator will be there to give photographic support and ensure that you come home with some once-in- a-lifetime images.
