Petra Photo Tours

I have the incredible opportunity of leading a photo tour through the wonderful country of Jordan.

Photograph the magnificent ancient ruins of Petra, camels silhouetted against sunset on dunes, Petra by Night, a cascading waterfall and much more. Capture your adventure and memories while at the same time learning how to photograph star trails and the Milky Way under the vast open night skies of Wadi Rum and  enjoy a 3 hour jeep tour in the desert.

Numbers are capped at 11 in order for me to give everyone personal attention.

“Jordan is one of my favourite destinations in the world, and it’s absolutely brilliant for photography. I created Petra Trek Tours with a heartfelt desire to share this wondrous land with you. And to maximize your photographic experiences, I asked pro photographer Stephen Cruickshank to lead us on this unique photography tour.

I have a very deep love for Jordan and her people. There is nothing better than to sit under a star studded heaven in the most beautiful desert after having enjoyed an authentic Bedouin supper, sipping a piping hot cup of Bedouin tea around a fire, talking away with newly made friends until the early hours of the morning. 

I have been visiting Jordan since 2016 (3 times a year), and I keep going back. It is the most amazing country and people. I have traveled Jordan from the north all the way to the east, south and west – traversing mountains, deserts, wadis, dirt roads and the like.  In the process i have acquired an intimate knowledge of the country, her people and the culture, and I have built up a network of local support and guides. I am passionate about sharing this diverse country and her people with you. I always leave Jordan a richer person with new friends and beautiful memories, and would love for you to experience the same. Petra Trek Tours offers tours with a difference – you will experience the heart of Jordan and Bedouin hospitality like nowhere else in the world.

Please join me on the most fantastic journeys through this diverse country.
