ABOUT ZOOM PHOTO TOURS

OUR STORY

Zoom Photo Tours have over the years taken numerous travelers to some of the world’s best photo destinations – from the rainforests of Borneo to the African savannahs and the vast icecap of Greenland. Our tours are always led by some of the world’s greatest photographers in their area and we work with both well known National Geographic photographers to award-winning Sports Illustrated photographers. Our journey started in Sweden in 2013, and after quickly becoming the leading photo tour operator in all of Scandinavia, www.zoomfotoresor.se, we now have offices in several countries, from Stockholm to New Delhi. Every month we bring photographers from all over the world together on amazing photo adventures to unique locations where they get the chance to develop as photographers and capture the splendor of our planet.

OUR MISSION

Ever since the start, it has been important to us that our tours are always accompanied by a highly skilled and talented photographer. Their task is to help you develop yourself as a photographer and get the most out of your camera during your tour. To do this our photographers will hold daily photo activities, image editing workshops, lectures and of course give you personal guidance.

In order for you to have an amazing tour and get the maximum amount of time to capture photos, it is important that the all the logistics of the tour is working smoothly. To ensure this, all of our tours are accompanied by a tour coordinator from Zoom who will manage all the logistics and make sure you are having a great experience. This also helps our photographer to focus fully on you and your photography.

During our tours we think it’s important that you eat and sleep well, so the hotels and lodges we use are of a high standard. It is also important to us that you already know before you book what hotels you are staying at. In addition to this, we always work with local agents who have long experience of photo tours on the destinations we visit. They are familiar with the hotels, bus companies and the various restaurants, which means that we can maintain the same high standard all throughout the tour.
