Since our first photo workshop in 2011 we have gained vast knowledge of the best locations and opportunities for capturing the best Romania has to offer. Our photo tours of Romania usually include meeting fascinating local people such as shepherds, traditional farmers, people dressed in traditional clothes for special occasions (such as weddings, Christmas, Easter or other religious holidays), gypsy or locals attending locals markets (and more). We include traditional events, visiting some of the most picturesque sights in the country (such as castles, fortified churches, medieval towns or painted monasteries) at times when light is special. And we’ve also found the most interesting landscapes in the country and the best times to be there according to the season (and thankfully Romania has 4 distinct seasons, each very distinct).

We accommodate photographers of various interests and group sizes (from 1 to max 12 people). Some of our tours are more photography-heavy while others can be described as photography holidays of Romania where you will leisurely enjoy the country while snapping pictures along the way.

Our Romania photo tours and holidays are designed so they benefit the local economy and encourage heritage and environmental conservation.

We are not intrusive, we are simple observers and we are respectful of all nature, people and places we encounter along the way.

Our main Romania photo tour categories: Group Photo Tours / Private Photo Tours / Photo Day Trips

In 2019 we received an EU grant (through the Start Up Plus programme)  to set-up this company focused on photo tours.

Excellent knowledge of local history and culture! We visited off-the-beaten path places with practically no tourists around. They certainly know some of the best view points in the country, and they tailored the tour since we were a group of photographers seeking for some good landscape views, as well as people photography.

Gianni from Italy

As part of photography group I had no prior experience or understanding of Romania. At the end of our trip I knew a great deal. It is a photography holiday I totally recommend. 

Leah from Canada

I’ve worked with them for 5 years now, and each trip has been better than the last. I can’t recommend their services enough. Romania as a destination should be on everyone’s radar. It’s stunningly beautiful, has wonderful cultural experiences at every turn, and the food is outstanding. And I can’t say enough about the hospitality of the Romanian people.
