Simply a great opportunity to get a Hands on photography lesson from a Philly local and expert artist. Armond is a great teacher and my husband and I left with lasting memories and great pics. A fabulous way to be a tourist in your own city or to explore Philly if you’re visiting while learning more about photography. No camera? No problem! I just used my Samsung camera and it was great to learn how to capture better composition. Try it out. Great time!

“Thanks again for all you taught me. For the first time in my life I feel like I’m making strides from being a “guy with a camera” to being an “amateur photographer”

I highly recommend Armond to anyone interested in taking more than common snapshots and plan to do it again myself.

Took both the Historic Philly and Rittenhouse Square tours on separate days. Both tours were fantastic. Armond showed up without a camera. This told me right off that these tours were going to be about me getting his undivided attention, good instruction and lots of opportunities for great shots. With his thorough knowledge of the city, he has a well planned route that provides loads of interesting subjects. He gave lots of good pointers on composition and how to take different views of subjects. Helped me become more aware of shapes and lines and how to use them. These tours gave me a good feel for the Historic area so I was able to return on my own and continue to shoot. Armond has a warm personality that sets a great tone, is an excellent photographer so he’s able to critique on the fly, and worked very hard to ensure I was getting the maximum enjoyment and learning from his tour. When we return for another conference in Philly, I’ll be seeing Armond again.
