My husband and I just finished a night tour with Simon. He is super-knowledgable about the history of the area, has great photography tips and is very engaging. He is patient with the amateurs and his instructions will follow me after I have gone home. He is very friendly and puts you at ease right away. Forget the other guys... More

Simon is a fantastic resource in London. He is a highly skilled photographer, a history buff, and a superb guide for his favorite city. We did a two hour walk in The City and learned a good deal about not-too-well-known historical matters and got some great photography tips. Btw, highly recommend a City tour on Saturday when the streets are... More

We were lucky enough to squeeze in two photo walks with Simon during a recent trip to London: a night walk near London Bridge and a day walk around Vauxhall bridge. Simon is knowledgeable and helpful and went out of his way to tailor the walks to suit us. My husband has advanced photo skills whereas I use a point-... More

The tour we went on was around the City of London and it was informative but not dry, both on the history of a part of the city I hadn't been too much and on how to get the best pictures out of our (very different) cameras. Well worth it for both keen photographers and history buffs

We met Simon early morning on our first full day in London. It was my husband's first time in London, while I am a beginner with my DSLR camera. Simon made sure to point out the major sights to Dennis, and was also so friendly and full of interesting tales that it made him a great first Londoner to meet.... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad it was a good "first time" introduction to London, and that you got more comfortable with the camera. The race track sounds like great fun, so I am glad the things we talked about were useful! Hope to see you again soon. More

Our afternoon with Simon was thoroughly enjoyable and informative. There were three in our party, 2 adults & 18 yr old daughter and we all felt that our tour of The City area was the perfect balance of photography and history. Simon was there to give hints and tips but allowed us plenty of freedom to choose our own shots.... More

Having lived in London for almost five years, I booked Simon's Vauxhall walk primarily to learn more about my shiny new Nikon D3200. I didn't expect to learn much about my adopted city, but in just two hours, I had explored some of my camera's most intimidating controls, and some of Westminster's oldest backstreets. Simon loves what he does and... More

I booked this tour for my dad and I, having attended one of Simon's 'Introduction to DSLR' courses at Ham House a few months ago. We spent a few hours in the very warm sunshine walking from Vauxhall to Westminster and along the way Simon gave us tips about good angles and exposure along with some really interesting facts about...

Simon took time with me and my 19 year old daughter. He showed us pointers on using our cameras and brought a tripod along circus to borrow. He pointed us in the right direction and then assisted us in making some great shots. We got really nice pictures of the tower bridge at sunset and also at moonrise. We were... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic walk with Simon. We've been living and working in London for a number of years and armed with our new camera we thought we'd get Simon to show us the hidden gems we'd walked by a hundred times in the city. We were not disappointed. From London's first coffee shop to the 6... More
