We drive through the different Boroughs (Camden, Westminster, Lambeth, Southwark) and pass by many attractions. The start point of the tour depends on your pickup location. Either from North or South, our 6-hour tour is a mix of 2 hours’ driving, 4 hours’ walking, and photography throughout central London.
My aim is to make this experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible by mixing the driving and walking time. I understand being a model for photography can be challenging but this experience may be different because we will be spending 5 hours together. This gives plenty of time to discuss what you like by reviewing the photos at the end of each shoot and planning for something different and creative for the next location.
I have a few different approaches to photography and I use different cameras and lenses during the tour. When I’m using a wide-angle lens, I’m usually closer to the model, while with a zoom lens I am further away.
But it all depends on how you feel more comfortable during the shoot and what type of photographs you prefer. I promise you will feel much more and more relaxed after each photograph and increasingly excited about the next location.
We will be covering the most attractive places in London. During our walk, while you are looking around and experiencing London, I will capture some natural shots, some classic street photography shots; you don’t need to pose, just enjoy your experience in the Big Smoke and I’ll do my job.
START TIME: Pickup by 10:30 AM, any postcode in London

Attention for elegant ladies; if you are planning to wear high heels for a photoshoot, please consider bringing spare comfortable shoes for walking.

We spend around 30 minutes walking through different paths in the Stables Market and Camden Lock Market which is situated by the Regent’s Canal. A colorful market with hundreds of shops and stalls selling unique crafts, clothing, souvenirs…
One of the most beautiful panoramic viewpoints over the city in North London, almost 63 meters above sea level. You’ll be able to see a lot of landmarks like the London Eye, The Shard, BT Tower, and many more.
It all depends on what you prefer to visit and have photographed. We drive through the Outer Circle and Inner Circle. Some possible places to stop are the Rose Garden (best in spring and summer but still some roses in autumn and winter), giraffes at London Zoo if we are lucky, the famous Nash Terrence building, London Central Mosque, or maybe the Japanese Garden Island.
After about a 20-minute drive through Bake Street, Grosvenor Square, and passing by prime locations like the former U.S Embassy and then through New Bond Street (identified as the most expensive shopping street in Europe), we get to Piccadilly Circus. Is around an open space at a street junction, with unique architecture surrounding it, a great spot to capture London vibes.
A 10-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus through Leicester Square, we arrive at Trafalgar Square where significant landmarks are surrounded by prominent buildings including the National Gallery, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Canada House, and South Africa House.
After a short walk from Trafalgar Square, we will cross the River Thames by Hungerford footbridge with a nice view from the west side to the London Eye, Westminster Bridge and the Palace of Westminster and from the east side to Waterloo Bridge, The Shard and the City of London.
After a 20-30-minute drive through Strand, crossing Waterloo Bridge, then driving through Southwark, we arrive at one of the largest and oldest food markets in London.
A short walk from Borough Market and maybe a short queue to enter takes us to the Shard. The view from The Shard is the highest viewing platform in the city, located 800 ft above the ground on the 72nd floor, including the only 360-degree view in London. They promise stunning views of London and beyond on a clear day; however, please consider the London weather conditions, and be prepared for poor views in cloudy weather or honestly nothing on a foggy day!
