Capture the perfect evening shot of Edinburgh Castle before experimenting with long exposure to create dramatic images of the medieval city, under the guidance of a local expert who will show you some of the most photogenic spots in the city.
A three-hour private photo tour in Edinburgh. Starting with coffee to review your photography skills and customise your tour to suit your level and go over technical skills. Please note, during the summer months when the sun is setting late, it is more of an evening/ dusk tour.
From twilight into the night hours, Edinburgh takes another form. The walls seem to come alive, and shadows play with your senses, creating an otherworldly atmosphere. With a night photo tour of Edinburgh, you will capture the best of the city in the most beautiful setting. Our classic route explores the castle and alleys off the Royal Mile; or choose your own route on this private photo tour.
Whether you are starting off, a hobbyist, or have years of experience, our professional photographer will find superb photographic opportunities for all kinds of interests. Capture not just the grand landmarks, but the stream of car lights or street signs. Take advantage of the one-on-one experience of our private and personalised tour to develop your own creative vision whilst your photographer guide will offer practical tips on photographing in low light and long exposures, shooting in a variety of locations.
Each tour is crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. Apart from taking photos, you can also expect to learn:
Night photography basics
Night portraiture – getting the most out of your flash
Long exposure light streaking – cars, boats
Reviewing your photography
Let us know if you have a particular location you want to shoot and we will work it into the itinerary.
Each tour is private, and we will not couple you with people you do not know. Feel free to bring along guests, such as other photographer friends, or your partner and family, but we ask you to limit the group to four people. This way we can work at your pace to make sure you take away the skills that last a lifetime.
