The photography tour of Edinburgh was by far my favorite day of my 8 day trip around Scotland. James has created and honed the perfect tour for people who want to learn about the history of Edinburgh while getting to spend a couple of hours picking the brain and learning from a world-class photographer.
From the get-go it was clear that James would be a great tour guide. His upbeat personality and genuine interest in the people taking the tour helped create a fun, easy-going atmosphere. It was also clear that he is passionate about Edinburgh – something that I was pleasantly surprised about as I was not expecting such a detailed history lesson throughout the day.
James clearly taught us what goes into capturing a great shot. He gave the group ample opportunities to practice by both setting up some shots for us and giving us time to explore some of the areas on our own. His advice and guidance helped me get amazing shots of the city as well as grow as a photographer. I am just an amateur hobbyist but I arrived home today with a newly lit passion for photography.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in photography. I am 100% going to take another tour of his the next time I am in Scotland. For those wondering – the tour took us about 5 hours. We were on our feet most of the time and we did a lot of walking. It’s completely worth it, though, as the time flew by. – Visited July 2017
