What do our clients think….?

We are proud that so many of our customers have recommended us to so many of their friends. We spend very little on advertising and rely heavily on word of mouth to stay in business.

  • Our client return rate is over 50% (people come back to us!)
  • Most of our tours are unique with different situations each time we tour (we try to make sure that you get different shots each time)
  • Some of our customers have been returning for over 5 years (we didn’t just start doing this yesterday!)
  • Selling photographs is not important to us. Your images are all that matter.

“Just back from 5 days bird watching/photo trip with Marcus Conway in Scotland. Marcus was a master in finding sites with great birds. Those were fabulous days packed with a lot of birds, excellent weather and impeccably arranged tour. What a fantastic experience to spend the night on the moor and wake up together with the Black Grouse. Photographing this spectacular bird of prey was a fantastic finish to the week.”

“Really enjoyed the tour. Lots of opportunities to see and photograph birds”

Tours: Mull 2011



“Seeing new things – The eagles, otters, hares, divers. The highlights were the unexpected though like the grasshopper warbler and sabines gull. (…) I loved the thorough and preparation that had gone in to every aspect from the rooms, reading material, etc etc. Also Marcus’s obvious knowledge and enthusiasm for it all. All perfect. Food was superb. I hadn’t given much thought to the accommodation/food before going but it is one of the reasons I will come back. Excellent.  Advice was really helpful and certainly made me challenge my approach. Probably the most productive 5 days I have had in the UK”

“This was the most enjoyable photography holiday I have taken.  The small group size meant all were more involved and able to “get good opportunities” with the subjects. Super that everyone hit it off so well and I believe all are still in contact.”
Tour: Mull 2012

“Many thanks for your time during my stay. I really appreciated the efforts you put in to get me the lovely red grouse shots which I have now. I would surely recommend you to anyone that has an interest in some serious grouse shooting (with a camera!) And feel free to use me as a reference anytime.”

Tour: Red Grouse Guiding 2009

“I decided to take off with my cameras to try and capture some images of Scottish Winter Wildlife in their natural environment before the snow melts. Wanting to maximise my available time I decided to use the services of local expert Marcus Conway on one of his “Ebirder” guided tours. This turned out to be a great decision, Marcus’s friendly manner, superb wildlife knowledge when balanced with his extensive photographic skills, made this trip a great success. If you are planning a photographic trip to the Highlands, then I would definitely recommend checking out what Marcus can offer.”
Lister Cummings, Scotland

Tour: Highland Winter 2014

“Having guided in a number of countries myself I know that it’s a lot more difficult than it looks, and that there’s a lot of preparation required to do it well. Marcus has clearly done his homework and, being an excellent photographer, is able to get you into the right position at the right time to get great images. Moreover he understands animal behaviour, and doesn’t rush. This means you can properly appreciate and watch your target species in its iconic habitat. I highly recommend his services”
