Do you want a vacation that you will remember for the rest of your life? Are you fed up with sitting on the beach? Want to know how to get the best out of you camera or video camera? Then why not join me on a Tornado chasing adventure or Northern Lights expedition?
I’m Alister Chapman and I run incredible small group adventure tours to see and photograph some of natures most spectacular events. I’m also a professional TV cameraman and photographer. I specialise in filming severe and extreme natural events for high end TV productions, my clients include the BBC Natural History Unit, Discovery and National Geographic. On some selected expeditions I invite the general public to join me as I run filming and photography workshops while shooting in some of the most amazing locations around the world (an interest in photography or video is not essential). I am also a highly regarded video and photography instructor for several international film schools, universities and colleges. I teach video production techniques around the world for broadcasters, universities and private individuals. By combining my life long passion for natural extremes with my talents as a cinematographer I have been able to put together some of the most amazing and memorable adventures you could ever experience. You don’t need to be in to video or photography to enjoy these adventure tours, they are just as enjoyable if all you want to do is see incredible sights and scenery. Many of my guests come back year after year for memories that last a lifetime. If you are into photography or video then this is an opportunity to take incredible pictures to hang on your wall at home or spectacular videos that will amaze you friends.

This years tours have been particularly successful. My guests have seen incredible tornadoes, witnessed the Northern Lights dancing across the sky for hours at a time. Photographed amazing lightning bolts and spent time with Sami Reindeer herds. Because my tour groups are always small, typically between 4 and 7 guests we can be highly mobile and adapt quickly to changing conditions. We often have the sights we see all to ourselves. Please check out the videos below for an idea of the kinds of things you can expect to see on one of my adventures. These videos were shot by myself on trips that I have run. You too can see all of these things! For more information on the different tour offerings please use the links at the top of the page. If you need even more information or would like to discuss your needs or concerns over the phone please use the Contact Form link at the top of the page to send me a message and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can. As well as tours I can also provide filming and media guide services.
