Martin is an excellent teacher. Very patient, and with a wonderful sense of humour. He knows Japan, particularly Hokkaido, because he’s lived here for 20 years, and has chosen excellent locations, none of which disappointed – no small feat considering how reliant on weather we were. He’s well-organized and if anything didn’t go according to plan I certainly didn’t notice a glitch in the matrix.
The Martin Bailey Hokkaido experience is a cornucopia of great photography locations, people, learning and fellowship. It was as much a cultural experience as it was a photographic one. Martin's command of the language and familiarity with the locations ensured a hassle free trip. It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by encouraging colleagues in a non competitive environment with unrestricted access to such a competent and approachable teacher.
2011 Update: This was my third time on the tour and definitely not my last. That should speak bundles.

Unbelievable photographic opportunities, outstanding food and superb company made for a truly memorable experience. I shot some of my best images ever! Thank you Martin!

Martin's passion for photography is infectious. Whether you're standing in the dark, at minus 15 degrees, wearing nearly every item of clothing you brought, waiting for a sunrise, or sitting on the floor in traditional Japanese attire over dinner (with beer), you are inspired by his enthusiasm, knowledge and desire to help you master your craft. This trip was a magical blend of opportunity and expertise. If you're looking for a unique insight into the photographic opportunities of Japan wildlife and landscape, this is the perfect trip! Martin's trips will book quickly as word spreads - don't miss out.
