A fun photography class through London’s streets! - During our short family trip to London, my daughter and I were looking for a knowledgeable guide to help us develop our photography skills a little, while exploring some of the city’s many photogenic attractions. We found Lou here on TA, and booked a half day tour with her. Our day started well, and only got better. Arriving at the meeting spot, Lou was there promptly to greet us. She was very knowledgeable and personable, and took a moment to get to know a little about us, our photography skill levels, our cameras, and what we were wanting to learn, before we set off on our walking tour. As a fairly seasoned wildlife photographer, I was looking for assistance on photo composition and cityscapes. My daughter is fairly new to the hobby, and was in need of more basic help, including camera settings and more fundamental skills. Helped by her deep appreciation of art and years of teaching experience, Lou found a way to adjust her teaching style to help both of us. We couldn’t have been happier. We came hoping to capture London images a little better, and left seeing the world a little differently. Thank you Lou! Highly recommended.

Private Photography Tour of London - I had a wonderful time with Lou during a private photography tour of London highlights. She had a great working knowledge of my specific camera and offered a few very helpful hints. More importantly, she was able to express her creative vision as an artist, which allowed me to begin to evaluate a travel scene in a new exploratory and more creative way... to read the scene, pick out the elements, and frame the image. Thank you Lou!

Wonderful Guide and experience - My tour guide and instructor Lou was truly first class & I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a memorable photo experience in London. Lou was encouraging, helpful, knowledgable and knew her stuff very well. If I get back to London I would definitely book another tour.

Amazing - I had a great tour with Lou through London. Her teaching style is perfect, and she really helped me to understand how to use my camera to take better photos and venture away from all the automatic settings. I came away with some excellent photos and a significantly better understanding of how to compose and structure shots and make the best use of my camera. If you've got a DSLR camera, but have never ventured beyond the automatic or pre-programmed settings, then this is the tour for you.

Everything I could have asked for - I had a lovely day with Lou on a Thursday in March. I consider myself an advanced amateur (though Lou said I should consider myself intermediate) so I already had some knowledge of my camera and settings. For me, this tour was about getting the best shots and advice from a local and a photography professional. Lou was everything I could have wished for in a guide. Professional, personable, and knowledgeable. She had read up on my camera model before we met so she knew it's capabilities and we used that knowledge to get some amazing shots. 100% would highly recommend. If I am ever back in London, I'll be meeting up with Lou again for one of the other myriad tours she offers.

Great Session with Lou - I spent a terrific few hours on a private photo tour with Lou. She really helped me to get my head around several technical aspects of photography that I have been having issues with. I wish the weather had been a bot more cooperative as it was good and rainy a goop part of our time together , but we still managed to get some great shots and I was able to put to use some of the techniques she taught me. I would absolutely recommend Lou and the

Fabulous - Thanks to Lou for the wonderful, informative and enlightening day’s course. We turned up as complete camera novices. We finished the day knowing there is much to learn yet and to practice but really knowing so much more than we would ever have imagined. Thoroughly recommended

Introduction to Photography & London - I had a great day out, and learnt loads about my camera & taking photo's as well as some lovely shots. I now have more confidence and will not be leaving my camera on auto settings. Would thoroughly recommend this and you'll end up with some photo's of London to remember.

Brilliant in spite of the weather - I enjoyed the tour so much despite the fact that it was raining quite hard, the photo opportunities that were pointed out to me far outweighed the fact that I was a bit wet! I learnt loads and took some photos that I am really proud of. Absolutely excellent morning and I can't wait to do another tour the next time I am in London.
