“If you’re a novice, Andy will help with technique and technical instruction.”

We’re here to get you the very best of Brugge, both on camera and otherwise.

While our main focus is obviously on better photography, we also provide some thoughts on the locations we visit.

Expect some historical info to go with the photos, local anecdotes, and honest advice for enjoying Brugge once you put the camera down.

Why go somewhere if it’s just for the photos?
