We are excited to introduce the latest member of our Aperture Club team. Warren joins us with vast experience in small group tour operations, having managed some of the World’s most innovative adventure tour companies. In addition to a fresh new perspective on the business, Warren will be developing our new ‘photography tours’ in Australia and around the World. Welcome aboard Warren.. we can’t wait to see where we are going first…

Warren has worked in tour operating for the past 25 years. In senior management roles, Warren has been based in London and Sydney and worked in regional offices across Africa, the Middle East and Asia. He has worked for specialist tour operators; Kumuka Worldwide, The Imaginative Traveller, Think Adventure, Tucan Travel, Adventure World and most recently, Travel Indochina.

Warren’s love of travel is tempered with a deep appreciation for sustainable tourism which he says, “must benefit local people and communities as well as respect their culture and sensibilities. We are guests in another country and have a duty and responsibility to the people we meet and the communities we visit, the relationship must be mutually beneficial and the aim should be to learn something about each other, to encourage tolerance and inclusiveness”.

Although development is still in its early stages, potential international destinations for The Aperture Clubs new small group ‘photography tours’ are slated to include China, Vietnam, Malaysia, india and Turkey. Watch this space…
