We'll meet in the centre of Edinburgh at the Grassmarket where we'll say a quick hello and jump right in. I'll explain a little about the settings on your camera so that you'll hit the ground running and get some great photographs of this amazing city. From the Grassmarket we'll move on to get photographs of the incredible Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile Cockburn Street. The tour is tailored to your ability level and is aimed at beginners wishing to use manual mode. We will cover white balance, exposure, composition etc and I'll aim to get you comfortable in taking your photography to the next level. You'll get a good walk, but most importantly some great photographs and the skills to start developing your own style.
Social Distancing will be adhered to as per Scottish Government guidelines to keep us all safe.

I'm a professional photographer with years of experience in front of, and behind the camera. Passionate about both photography and sharing Edinburgh and it's hidden gems. Having trained and worked professionally in film and television first as an actor and later as a camera operator, I found a love for stills photography and love to pass it on! For a unique take on the city, come on an adventure and I will show you the best viewpoints in the city so that we can experience things from a locals point of view and come away with the best images and a better understanding of how to use your camera. Smart phones welcome too! Please note cameras are not provided.
