Calton Hill, Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, EH1 3BJ

    Welcome to Edinburgh Photography Tours Limited, The UK's number one ranked photography tour on TripAdvisor and ranked the number one Photography Course and Training company in Scotland on FreeIndex. Recommended by USA TODAY.

    James Christie, world renowned and internationally published, professional photographer will take you on a four hour walking tour around the major attractions in Edinburgh's vibrant Old Town.

    • A native of Edinburgh, James will provide an historical account of each attraction visited. His goal is to help you get the best from your camera and show you how to compose professional shots. If your camera has the ability to shoot in manual mode, James is confident that after four hours with him, you will never go back to any of the programmable modes ever again.


    • James shows you how to take each photograph and guarantees that each participant will take home professional looking images that can be displayed and enjoyed for many years to come. The tours are aimed at all levels of photographer, from absolute beginner to experienced professional. James does not use confusing jargon, preferring to explain things in a simple to understand manner. James is friendly, polite and encouraging.


    • The tours start at 10am daily (Monday - Saturday) and last approximately 4 hours. We do not require a minimum number of attendees to do the tour. If you book and you happen to be the only person that is booked for that day, the tour still goes ahead.
