PIN London Photo Tours

Photo Tours and Workshops tours

London Photo Tours and Workshops specialise in short courses, tours, and small-group photography workshops, with experienced and friendly tuition. They also run private tours and workshops exclusive to you or your group. They provide ‘hands-on’ tuition in camera handling and understanding of photography as well as expert instruction and professional knowledge. Their workshops are presented as structured modules, which can be taken either singly or combined. The final goal is a creative workflow unique to you with an understanding of photography as an art form which needs technical expertise in camera handling as well.

London Photo Tours and Workshops have been running photography tours in London since 2005. During that time they have endeavoured to make their photography tours the best in London. “We don’t point at monuments but teach you photography at the same time so you can have your own creative input and come back with the best photos you have taken”. They recommend taking a photography tour with them early in your holiday or tour so that you can show the knowledge you gain in the photos which follow.

Most of their photo tours are private – either as 1to1 or for a small group together – and discounts are offered for bigger groups A few photo tours are scheduled which are open access booking rather than private – these are cheaper but dates fixed in advance.

Take advantage of their experience to see London in a new and vibrant way with sensitive and expert tuition
