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.

Had a wonderful time with Lou. Took us to the usual sites but also other not do well known sites that made for good photography.

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!

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.

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.
