Meet Ewen Bell

"I love that moment when we're in a conversation and you have just made the mental leap, and landed exactly where you needed to be. There's a glow that takes over people's faces, a kind of happiness that only comes from achievement. Well earned achievement. Being there and guiding people to make that leap is the most rewarding moment of fulfilment I can imagine."

Ewen Bell


From National Geographic to national tourism boards and international travel operators, Ewen's editorial style appears in publications and websites all over the world.


Although experienced in shooting with every kind of camera and lens brand, Ewen is currently an ambassador for Lumix, DJI and Capture One.


His photographic manifesto called "ReIMAGINE" delves deep into the philosophy of photography and how to connect with your creative path.


Former 'Editor at Large' for Digital Photography in Australia, Ewen also writes for Digital Photographer in the UK and a handful of travel magzines.

Tour Leader

Since 2004 Ewen has been designing and leading his own photography tours that take genuinely small groups into some of the most inspiring locations.


Having worked in Zoology and majored in ecology, Ewen loves to be out in the wilderness. Birds are the peak expression of habitat, and a great photographic challenge.

Himalayan Highs

Travel to the rooftop of the world - but without trekking - and have time to experience the culture before you photograph it, with a guide who truly knows Nepal and the art of photography.

Arctic Norway

Stand beneath a storming aurora as it dances wildly above your head - while your camera clicks and captures a version of that moment you will treasure for a lifetime.

A Week In The Outback

We did a special one week version of the outback flying tour for Accor Hotels and it was a blast.

"At the core of my photography is a set of three basic principles... Go slow. Get Closer. Look for the light."


It's about photography, not cameras. A big generous book that lets you fall in love with photography all over again.
