Photography Tours of Philadelphia

taking a picture

During the many years of walking the streets photographing Philadelphia, and selling my fine art photography through art shows, I have talked to scores of people that were interested in how I photographed the city in such a unique and expressive way. These conversations, combined with my love of Philadelphia and photography, inspired me to start Photography Tours of Philadelphia.

Everyone can take an exceptional photograph, regardless of training or equipment, and have a good time doing so. My goal through Photography Tours Of Philadelphia is to offer you interesting and iconic locations for you to do just that. Whether you choose Philadelphia’s Historic area or the Art Museum with the Rocky Statue and steps, you will have a unique, hands-on experience, with personalized instruction.

During the photography tour I will help you understand the elements of composition, your camera’s controls (f-stops, aperture, and shutter speeds), and how they influence and control the photograph. You will be able to take your camera off of auto and have more creative control over the image.

Whether you are visiting Philadelphia or live here, during this two and a half hour photography tour you will participate in an authentic city adventure and have an exceptional opportunity to experience and photograph the City of Brotherly Love with an insider’s point of view.
