Tips and tricks

Lately as mobile phones and Instagram filters are pushing away cameras , it’s easy to neglect true value of photography tourism. Nowadays everybody ask themselves: “Do we really need to learn all manual settings?” or “To have camera at all?”

We can show you that photography hasn’t replaced the art of painting, neither did mobile phone replaced photography. In fact, skilled photography has become an old skill and even more valued as the number of adept photographers are shrinking.

The photography tour is not only about professional-looking shots taken on every corner.
We aim to improve your images technically & creatively with achievable goals, inspiring settings and unique locations where you can shoot then analyze photos on the spot, in authentic local environments.

DSLR, ISO, aperture, shutter speeds, kit lens… terminology in photography can be a huge turn off for many who want to improve their photo skills, but after some basic how-to with us, you will handle all your creative ideas with straightforward thinking.

In our equipment guide – and handy glossary with few tips,
your experience is covered with us.

D/SLR or Mirrorless camera

From analog to digital models and types. Awe us with your pet.

Wide angle lens

From fisheye to standard kit specs and sizes, for panoramas and landscapes etc.

Telephoto lens

Telephoto lens are welcomed because we will sneak a lot for a surprise shot. It will come handy for some tasks that we prepared.


Not only that they protect your expensive lens from environment but helps you take that perfect shot in all conditions.

Memory cards

Don’t forget to pack your card (because types and capacity varies between cameras! Secure Digital cards are common. Preferably with class ‘6’ speed or up. We will provide card readers and review on site, during tour.

Batteries and Chargers

Also important to charge and pack both. We can provide power banks and aid on site if battery drain occurs. Don’t worry.

Microfibre cloth

This little thingy made out of special soft fabric is not mandatory but we use it regularly in order to clean & maintain equipment (lenses), so should you.

Light rain sleeve protection

Just in case…of sudden weather conditions change etc. We will also have some pro tips on how to handle those situations. Silica gel is advisable to be a part of your standard equipment list. It can help protect you from moisture in bags.


Our guides will carry one tripod for whole group so feel free to bring yours if you prefer it that way and to have all setup ready before others without tripod.

Strap, mounts

We are quite sure that all cameras are sold with straps (neck, waist etc.).


Since we cover large city area, some sort of rugged camera bag would (be usefull and helpfull) suffice.

Before we line up all need-to-have equipment
let us mention some useful facts about the tour:

  1. We lead small groups because of opportunity to tailor any creative moments to your needs.
  2. If you’re aware of that old maxima Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints”. This fact can make your tour with us considerably more interesting.
  3. We are moving at a slow pace through city.
  4. Our hosts visit the same locations repeatedly, therefore they’ll know many communities throughout the tour, so you can expect more interaction with local people.
  5. If we get obstructed by any unwanted weather conditions, in small groups we can use that pause on the tour to review shots or edit our photos because guides are willing to aid for you with more tips & tricks on how to perfect choose and tailor your equipment & photos in future.
    Don’t worry, local hosts are used to weather patterns and will help you to adjust to it.
