Enjoyed the afternoon photographing with AmsterSam. Appreciated his patience in photographing at a leisurely pace. Not only did Sam show places and things to photograph that he knew and saw, he listened to what I liked and found those images to create. Very accommodating. Also, provided lots of feedback about composition and how to make more impactful images. He showed how to see many images in Black & White. I think it made a difference. Photos that did not say much in color all of a sudden took on a different life and form in Black and White. Amazing! I am pleased with many of the images I got photographing. Highly recommend Sam to photograph with.

My husband and I did a photo tour with AmsterSAM!! We loved the first tour soon much we scheduled a second one two days later on the same vacation! Sam was amazing and very helpful. I cannot believe how easy he taught me how to use my camera in manual mode. Sam has an amazing photographer eye for pictures and is very passionate about Amsterdam and photography! He made us fall in love with the city and a gave me a new appreciation and outlook on photos! If you are looking for a fun, educational photo tour where you can learn everything you need to know about shooting in manual mode, Amsterdam and spend the day with a local look no further...AmsterSam is the man for you!

I'm a beginner photographer, and Sam was very patient with me and took time to explain not only how to use the various settings on my Sony mirrorless camera, but also how to structure photographs to draw viewers in. On this trip, Sam took me on a bike tour through the industrial port and street art area where we spent a couple hours developing my photography skills, learning different ways to compose black&white and color pictures, and working on composition. We then went to the center area of Amsterdam where Sam continued to work with me, building on the skills we worked on during the first part. Sam is a great tour guide who knows the area and weaves in local history and color to the photography workshop/tour. For instance, he was able to convince one of the local street artists to let us take pictures of the artist while he was working on his art. In short, if you want an incredible photography tour, book an Amsterdam Photo Tours with AmsterSam!
