Hi, I had a fantastic experience on this photography tour. I arrived for my holiday with a good camera and zero knowledge on how to use it. I wanted to get the best possible pictures of cape town as well as learn how to use all the functions on my camera. Ryan was so friendly and professional. He explained and demonstrated how the camera worked and its different capabilities & functions while we took photographs around The Company Gardens. He was so patient while I practised and explained things in a way that was simple for me to understand. When I mentioned I was going on a safari he gave me great tips on how to photograph animals that were moving and different techniques to use. He took me to some wonderful places to photograph Cape Town, I definitely wouldn't have found them on my own as they are off the tourist trail. I would highly recommend this tour, I learned so much and it was a great way to get some really amazing shots of the city. Thanksread more

Some much fun! Cape Town is a beautiful place and has endless things to see, but we were looking for something different. So we decided to rather go with a Cape town local guide to take us to some places, other standard tours don't go to. Ryan was great, a very good photographer, he taught me some super cool photography tips that i never knew. MY girlfriend also learned a thing or two on how to take better photos using her camera phone. All round great experienceread more

I am a veteran traveler, this being the first time to Cape Town and must say, it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to.

Things you'll learn on Cape Town Photography Tours

Learn more about your camera and photography on my tours

Cape-Town-photography-course

Understand your camera

Everyone with a camera is welcome on my Cape Town Photography Tours! Bring your phone camera, GoPro or your brand new DSLR. Each one has great potential, waiting to be unlocked. I will show you general photography tips and tricks to take better photos as well as showing those with DSLR’s, that all those buttons on your camera, don’t have to be confusing. I will slowly introduce you what the most commonly used buttons do, when and how to use them.

Cape Town Photography Tours

Learn to take better photos

While the camera basics and functionality are important in taking great photographs, it only covers the technical side of photography rather than the ‘ideas’ or ‘creative side’. Composition is this other side. My Cape Town Photography Tours will teach you the visual perception and what to look out for in order to get the best photographs of Cape Town during your stay here

Cape Town Photography Tours
Cape Town Photography Tours

Focus, Movement & Sharpness

You can get all camera settings correct and have a very creative composition, but if your subject or entire image is out of focus or blurry, there is not much you can do even, in editing programs like Photoshop. While large, non-moving subjects like a mountain landscape or tree are easy to get in focus, there are techniques that I will teach during my Cape Town Photography Tours, to get the best results when shooting and moving subject such as cars, people, animals and birds

Cape Town Photography Tours

Background Blur

Aperture is part of the exposure fundamentals class that I will teach in the beginning. There is however more to aperture and how it affects what’s in focus and what’s blurry, known as depth of field (DOF). During my Cape Town Photography Tours, I will show you how different lens and distances between your subject matter, influences the depth of field, allowing you to be creatively in charge of your photographs

Cape Town Photography Tours
Cape Town Photography Tours

Creative Motion Blur

Also part of the exposure fundamentals is shutter speed. As with aperture, there is more too shutter speed than just being used for exposure, as it influences how much motion blur your image contains. During your time with me on my Cape Town Photography Tours,  you will learn how to be in control of the motion blur, as well as using filters to use it to your creative advantage

Cape Town Photography Tours

Low Light & Sunset

Everyone loves gorgeous sunset and my Cape Town photography tours have no lack of them, but shooting a sunset as your eyes see it is whole different story. I will talk you through some great techniques in getting better photos with your camera phone and DSLR cameras. I recommend a tripod for the sunset adventures, but will also show you how you can make your own when one isn’t available
