Creative Endeavors Photography Tours Bulgaria

Who are Creative Endeavors?

Creative Endeavors is an educational photography tour/adventure company catering to the arts in the stunning mountainous regions of Bulgaria.

Founded by international couple Phil and Karin Sheil (Phil being Welsh, Karin Canadian– both currently reside in Dubai, but fell in love with the spectacular beauty and warm friendly welcome of Bulgaria a few years ago). Their ultimate goal is to build an artist retreat in Bulgaria’s Rhodope Mountains offering the highest calibre of instruction in a wide range of artistic pursuits.

They began chasing this dream in summer 2016, offering three different and very successful landscape photography tours.
These tours not only cover some of the most spectacular locations in Bulgaria, but also provide the exceptional instruction of three diverse and highly qualified instructors:
University professor, Phil Sheil; National Geographic Photographer, Evo Danchev and Canadian photojournalist, Steve Somerville.

About the Tours

The tours take clients to some of the most remote and pristine locations that even many Bulgarians have never visited. Beyond outstanding learning outcomes, the tours are extraordinary adventures that create many wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Bulgaria is truly the undiscovered gem of Europe. Home to four major mountain ranges, it is a stunningly beautiful country from its crashing waterfalls and exquisite caves, to its towering mountains and pristine lakes and so much more.
It’s also rich in history, having been home to various civilizations for the past 1.4 million years. It is thus peppered with ancient ruins, sanctuaries and tombs, fascinating monasteries and churches and crumbling old fortresses.
It is a country that inspires creativity and nurtures a true appreciation for the beauty of the natural world.

So if you haven’t been…then now is the time!
