We drive through the different boroughs (Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster, City of London) and pass by many attractions. The start point of the tour depends on your pickup location. Either starting from west or east, our 6-hour tour is a mix of 2 hours’ driving, 4 hours’ walking, and of course, photography.
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 6 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.

After a short drive through Exhibition Road, passing by the Science Museum and Natural History Museum, we stop by the V&A Museum. As with other national museums, entrance is free. Even though we don’t have enough time to visit inside, it is a great spot to discover for a future trip.

Palace of Westminster> Westminster Bridge
A short walk takes us through Parliament Square, the next stop to visit and shoot; a large open green area, containing twelve statues of statesmen and other notable individuals, with the beautiful background of the Palace of Westminster and Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben). We continue walking towards Westminster Bridge for a signature London view.
A modern art gallery; located on the banks of the River Thames. Short of time to view the actual gallery, we will visit the top floor of the Blavatnik Building. Accessed by a lift from level zero of the Tate Modern with a breath-taking full 360-degree view of the City, you will see the Shard, as well as many, many of London’s other great
A very short walk from Tate Modern is the Millennium Bridge, a steel suspension bridge, 325 meters long, for pedestrians crossing the River Thames with a beautiful view of many of London’s landmarks.
A short drive from Millennium Bridge 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!
