Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a “photo tour”?

A photo tour (as we offer it) is a city tour with a strong focus on photography, both in seeing the city through the a photographer’s perspective as well as improved results in the photos you’ll take.

On Photo Tour Brugge & with your guide Andy, we offer sample photos on location as well as photo advice tailored to your specific skill and interest.

Basically, Part city tour, part workshop… With of course a portrait option (here) since Andy loves such things too. 😉

2. What kind of camera/experience do I need to bring?

Any camera from your smartphone or compact to DSLR/mirrorless to medium and large format is quite suitable for this tour.

(As your guide Andy says: “It’s not the car, it’s the driver that counts.”)

Whether you’re beginner or intermediate or pro (or even just looking for a unique tour experience), we’ll happily offer optional technical & creative advice as well as sample photos on location to help improve your photography both in Brugge & beyond.
