Join me in one of my many Photography Tours of Philadelphia. Whatever you favor; cityscapes, people or architecture you will find what you’re looking for during these tours.
I have been photographing since Christmas 1969. I have always sought out and photographed those experiences that bring harmony, grace and beauty into my life.
The city of Philadelphia plays a leading character in this renaissance.These images reflect an optimistic perspective of an artist, who finding no substance in negative depictions of his environment, yearns for a more harmonious composition.
For a new Photographer gaining practical experience is everything. Even for those who have taken photography classes for years, they can also learn new techniques and skills; and new and fresh ways of seeing something to photograph.
There is no better way to do this but with the practical experience of being out in the field,with an instructor, photographing scenes that are interesting, full of color, and that offer challenges in getting that perfectread more
Valley green is one of my favorite places to photograph and one of the most beautiful recreational areas just minutes outside of center city Philadelphia.

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!Jenna R.
“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.Doug W.
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.
