What you'll do
Do you ever scroll through instagram and see the most amazing travel pictures of friends or influencers, and wonder how they got such amazing shots? I offer the unique experience of exploring Madrid, while learning and practicing photography. We will start in a location of your choosing and explore the surrounding areas. During our tour, we will practice the art of photography in different ways. We will cover street photography and portraiture, with a travel element. I will guide and teach you how to take amazing street style photos while travelling. I will teach you how to use the equipment that you have to it's fullest potential, whether it's just an iPhone or a cool mirrorless camera that you only use in auto mode. I will offer creative direction in terms of posing, styling, framing; to ensure you create great quality photos and not the "look mum I'm in spain" type of photos that your friend share. I will of course use you as an example when teaching how to take better photos, meaning you'll leave with a selection of instagram bangers yourself. The experience itself will be full of useful tips and tricks for photography in general, and we can narrow that focus to a specific area of interest for you.
Photography is more than pointing your camera at a subject and pressing a button. It's an art form. It's self expression. At its heart, photography is story telling, one page at a time. I'm a self taught photographer and videographer from London, UK, and I specialise in creative story telling. I'm currently creating content for TheBlogAbroad, and my latest work is a promotional video for Oktoberfest in Munich. I've also been covering luxury retreats around the world. I live in Madrid but previously lived in: London, South Africa, Hong Kong and Vietnam. I've covered festivals, inaugurations, networking events, engagements, music shows and more. I'm also the creative director for ¿Cenamos? here in Madrid. This is more than a job for me, it's my passion and I'm excited to share it with you.
Professional quality photography equipment.
