A fun way to see the city with a local photographer to show you the best spots to take some great photographs and give you a better understanding of how to use your camera or smartphone. Typically last 2 hours though can be shorter if that suits.

Whether you are a beginner looking to gain some skills in manual mode, just looking for someone to show you the sights or an avid smartphone photographer, let Simon show you some of the photographic highlights of this incredible Unesco World Heritage City.

Edinburgh is a unique and very photogenic place, why not take some tips from someone who knows their way around not only the city, but cameras too!

We will walk from the city centre, taking in the Grassmarket and the Castle, down part of the Royal Mile and up to Calton HIll for a 360 view over the city from above. You will leave with some great photos, whatever the weather, having had a great experience with a friendly local.

If you would like to see other parts of the city such as the Dean Village, please get in touch for a bespoke package.
