Wonderful Guide and experience
Michael_V, 30-09-2022
My tour guide and instructor Lou was truly first class & I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a memorable photo experience in London. Lou was encouraging, helpful, knowledgable and knew her stuff very well. If I get back to London I would definitely book another tour.

I had a great tour with Lou through London.

Her teaching style is perfect, and she really helped me to understand how to use my camera to take better photos and venture away from all the automatic settings.

I came away with some excellent photos and a significantly better understanding of how to compose and structure shots and make the best use of my camera.

If you've got a DSLR camera, but have never ventured beyond the automatic or pre-programmed settings, then this is the tour for you.
Everything I could have asked for
ArcherLady, 31-03-2022
I had a lovely day with Lou on a Thursday in March. I consider myself an advanced amateur (though Lou said I should consider myself intermediate) so I already had some knowledge of my camera and settings. For me, this tour was about getting the best shots and advice from a local and a photography professional. Lou was everything I could have wished for in a guide. Professional, personable, and knowledgeable. She had read up on my camera model before we met so she knew it's capabilities and we used that knowledge to get some amazing shots. 100% would highly recommend. If I am ever back in London, I'll be meeting up with Lou again for one of the other myriad tours she offers.
Great Session with Lou
Deba812, 24-10-2019
I spent a terrific few hours on a private photo tour with Lou. She really helped me to get my head around several technical aspects of photography that I have been having issues with. I wish the weather had been a bot more cooperative as it was good and rainy a goop part of our time together , but we still managed to get some great shots and I was able to put to use some of the techniques she taught me. I would absolutely recommend Lou and the

Thanks to Lou for the wonderful, informative and enlightening day’s course. We turned up as complete camera novices. We finished the day knowing there is much to learn yet and to practice but really knowing so much more than we would ever have imagined. Thoroughly recommended
