I had the great pleasure of a 3 hour photo tour with Laurie in Tel Aviv. Laurie inspired me to frame my pictures differently and from different angles and then he knows all the nice places for stellar photography in Tel Aviv. I really enjoyed walking around with him in the city and talk about life, Israel, travel experience etc. while at the same time enhancing my photography skills.

I have just finished a private one day photography tour of the Old City and the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem with Laurie Cohen. He was an excellent teacher and I learned so much about street photography. Working with Laurie I realized how much I enjoyed this genre. Not only did he have a lot of patience, he was extremely knowledgeable. I have been on workshops before but I must say that Laurie’s was outstanding. We spent many hours photographing in areas that he knows well. We worked on my composition as well as some technical pointers using my Fuji camera. It was a great experience and I can highly recommend him. I’m already thinking about other trips in the country I will take with Laurie on our return to Israel or at other places he does workshops.

Hi Cynthia, Thank you for touring with me and for your kind words. I am glad that you enjoyed the photography tour in Jerusalem and the south. It was a lot of fun! It was great watching your photo skills improve over the course of the day, and am glad you overcame any anxieties about street photography. It was great to watch you feel more confident about taking candid shots of strangers. Thanks again, and I look forward to reuniting in the future, Laurie

One of my favorite parts was exploring Israel while learning about photography . Laurie helped me on my technical skills with my camera equipment and he helped me gain insight into improving my composition. He exposed me to the art of street photography and in capturing the beautiful desert. I highly recommend this wonderfully kind, talented and humorous instructor.

I had a great time on our multi-day tour throughout Israel! I am glad that you found the tuition in improving your technical skills in different photography genres was put to good use. I definitely saw your confidence increase in approaching street photography in particular. I hope your experience opened your eyes to injecting some creativity into your shots through the use of shallow depth of field and slow shutter speeds that we practiced. I look forward to reuniting in the future! Best wishes, Laurie

I recently returned from a wonderful photography workshop with Laurie in Israel and Jordan and had an incredible experience. Having an Israeli guide who is familiar with the landscape, the culture, cuisine, and people is invaluable. The trip was well organized with flexibility to modify as the pace of our small group desired. Laurie took us to so many photographic locations, at the right time, to avoid the most crowds, and was always respectful in letting us get our shots, and even provided us with behind the scenes footage that he sent to us along the way. I highly recommend Laurie if you want to explore this part of the world.

Laurie Cohen is the best guide! He has the advantage of years of experience traveling and photographing cities throughtout the world. He knows how to navigate within the cities and countryside of the countries he visits.
I have traveled with Laurie as our guide to many places in Morocco. The last trip, Laurie knowledge of venues has always made our travel easy and just downright fun.i

This is the second time I have been photo-guided by Laurie, the first one being in the Barcelona area. I enjoyed that so much, and learned many good tips, so was pleased that he was available in Israel when I was visiting. As my time with Laurie dovetailed with a group tour, he arranged our schedule to visit different places, and at different times.... The best times. Laurie seems to know every nook and cranny of Israel, so I felt that I was on a unique tour with great photo opps. Laurie is easy-going, but serious about his profession. I felt that I had 100% of his attention, and he always seems to have the right balance between giving me freedom, while at the same time providing excellent advice on composition, settings, and getting the most out of my camera. I look forward to seeing him again in the future, and highly recommend him.

I had a wonderful 2 day photo trip with Laurie from Israel Photography Tour. We spent a full day in Jerusalem and a second day in Akko, Caesarea and Rosh Hanikra. It was an amazing experience and I learned so much and was taken to stellar locations. I found Laurie by recommendation from a friend who toured with him to Petra in the past. I was not disappointed! All in all, a really great way for me to visit Israel and get ahead with my photography. Highly recommended.

Thank you for spending time to write a review of your experience on my photo tours. I also thoroughly enjoyed it! It was great to reunite, and am delighted that you put your new found skills in street photography into this trip. I can definitely see an improvement in your compositions and use of directional light since our initial tour. Keep up the great work!

We were supposed to be on a group photography tour of Israel, but as it turned, out, we were the only couple who had booked this particular tour, so we had Laurie as our private guide for 6 days. We visited Akko, Caesarea, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Masada, the Dead Sea, and the Negev. It rained for the first couple of days off-and-on, but we were able to shoot between the raindrops successfully, because Laurie knew where to go despite the weather!

Laurie is a terrific photographer, and is very personable and friendly. We think of him as our new best friend now! As the tour went along it felt more like a trio of buddies out on a shooting expedition, and less like a formal workshop, which suited me perfectly. He knew all the best places to go at all the best times to get the best shots. He shared several new techniques with us, especially for street-shooting. I've always favored the street but now I have new tools to catch the most interesting people in their natural state.

We had plenty of time to share stories and jokes, but I have to tell you that the funniest thing that happened was when he showed up for the tour with the car he had rented for the workshop: a tiny beat-up old Chevy with a for-rent sign painted on the side. Oy! (He took the ribbing good-naturedly, though).

I would absolutely recommend anyone interested in photography to book a tour with Laurie. You will NOT be disappointed; you will learn a lot, see wonderful things, and come back with more keeper shots than you know what to do with.
