Who better to guide you around London than our very own Kav Dadfar or Jordan Banks. Both Londoners, they grew up in the capital and can take you to those unique spots that are not on the brochures.

There will be sunrises and sunsets to capture. A walking tour around London’s gritty East End and a night photography tour along the river.

By the time you arrive back home, you will have a better knowledge of photography plus some amazing photos.


Professional service by pro photographers

There are lots of walking tours of London out there. So why should you choose us?

Firstly your instructors are from London and have spent a considerable amount of time photographing every nook and cranny this city has to offer. They have also run many photo walks around the capital so know the best places for those stunning photos

But also, unlike many other photography tour providers, our tutors are professional photographers. Not only by title but in practice. They are working photographers who have spent years honing their skills.

Their work has appeared across the globe in the likes on National Geographic, Wanderlust Travel Magazine and Lonely Planet.

There has never been a more important time in ensuring that your deposit or payment is safe. So in the event that any of our tours or workshops don’t go ahead, we offer a 100% refund. No fees and no excuses. So can rest assured that if you book a London photo tour with us, your booking is safe if the unexpected happens.

Small groups on even private tours

We have always believed that small groups are best for travelling. Not only are they safer to run and manage. But they are also much more sustainable and responsible. This is even more important for a photography course where learning is key.

We limit our workshops to only 6 people at a time and will run them with as few as 3 people. This ensures that everyone on the workshop benefits from ample time with the tutor. In fact for 2 people, if you prefer you can choose to turn this into one of our private tours.

Which means it can be tailored to exactly what you want to achieve. Whether it’s a night photography tour, long exposure photography or street photography, imagine how much you could learn in a few days with a private instructor to guide you!


Whatever level you are at, we can help

You may have only recently decided to take up photography and find it all overwhelming. Or you may have some knowledge but struggle to capture the sort of photos that you dream of. Or you could be a serious amateur with years of experience but want to take your photography to the next level.

Whatever level you are at, we can help you achieve your photography goals. If you are unsure if you would benefit from this London photography workshop or wish to know more, feel free to email us.

London Photo Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Our first morning together will start at Trafalgar Square in the heart of London. After a brief meet-and-greet, we will start making our way towards Buckingham Palace arriving in time to see the changing of the guards. From there we head to Piccadilly Circus and spend a few hours exploring the many different areas. From Covent Garden to Chinatown, these areas offer some of the best street photography in the world. Our lunch will be in a traditional English pub.

After a leisurely lunch and discussions around photography topics, we head out again. We will start at the beautiful Westminster Abbey and slowly make our way to Tower Bridge on foot. Following the River Thames, we will pass some of the most iconic buildings in London. These include the Tate Modern, St Paul’s Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Our evening will be spent photographing the beautiful Tower Bridge and the city skyline.


Day 2 (B)

This morning we visit the famous Borough Market – a favourite for Londoners. This food market is one of the best in the world for practising market and food photography. No doubt after walking around this market you will be feeling hungry so lunch will be at the market.

From there we will make our way to Greenwich. This area along the Thames is known for being at the international dateline. The Cutty Sark, Greenwich Market, 02 Arena, National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory are all located here. We will spend the afternoon and evening photographing this beautiful area.


Day 3 (B)

Our last morning together starts in East London. Our first stop is the fabulous flower market at Columbia Road. It is then onto Brick Lane. This area is like a huge outdoor art gallery and offers wonderful street photography. This area of London is one of the most culturally diverse places anywhere in Europe and the photo opportunities are never-ending.

We will spend a few hours over lunch reviewing images and answering questions. Then it is on to our final sunset shoot in Trafalgar Square. Before our shoot, we will enjoy our final dinner together. As the day turns to night and the lights come on, we can practice our long exposure photography.

It is then time to say our goodbyes and go our separate ways.
