Heritage Expeditions partners with Australian travel photographer

Ewen Bell will take passengers in his workshops on shore excursions for further outdoor experience
New Zealand’s family-owned Heritage Expeditions will offer photography workshops during three voyages aboard its 140-passenger flagship Heritage Adventurer in 2024.

The company formed a partnership with award-winning Australian travel photographer Ewen Bell, who has been joining Heritage Expeditions’ voyages since 2009.

Bell’s workshops will be held during Heritage Adventurer’s ‘Japan’s National Parks, Art & Culture’ voyage (May 24-June 8), the ‘Kimberley Explorer’ (August 11-21) and ‘Galapagos of the Southern Ocean’ (December 18-29).

Limit of eight

While all passengers will be invited to attend Bell’s lectures, the workshops will be limited to only eight for each voyage.

Those attending the workshops will go on shore excursions with Bell for further instructions.

Natural fit

Bell said the partnership with Heritage Expeditions is ‘a natural fit.’

‘This is something we have talked about doing for years and I am incredibly excited we are able to create a whole new way for people to connect with photography and travel,’ he said.

‘The places Heritage Expeditions explores really are a photographer’s dream and I can’t wait to share these through a lens with our guests.’

Commercial Director and expedition leader Aaron Russ described Bell as ‘an accomplished photographer and videographer of tremendous talents.’

Genuine interest

Russ said his ‘easygoing nature and genuine interest in guests and sharing the art of photography with them is ‘without peer.’
