Laurie excelled in combining excellent tuition with wonderfully photogenic locations in Jerusalem and Acco. He even included amazing cuisine into the tours which I am passionate about. All in all, an amazing experience that I will surely repeat on my next visit. Bravo Laurie!

Toured Tel Aviv and then later Jerusalem with Bernadette, and got a unique and wonderful perspective of the country and both cities. Full of great insights about the places and top tips how to take eye-catching and memorable photos that capture the spirit and essence of these sites. Learned so much to take my photography to the next level! I'd highly recommend it. Thanks Bernadette for helping to create such wonderful photo opportunities.

I did a half day tour in Jerusalem tour and a full day tour going north to Acre, Haifa and Casarea. Both were great trips guided by Laurie himself.

Prior to the trip I didn't really know what to expect since I have never used a photo guide before, but Laurie was very professional and prompt in email communications.

He also knows the sites very well and all of the photo spots. This is very important as you want to shoot as much quality shots as possible in a short amount of time.

Laurie has excellent photographer's eye and can pick up stuff that you easily miss so it was very helpful to have him around. He is also very flexible in terms of what you want to shoot and tailor the schedule accordingly.

So overall it was Excellent and I highly recommend that Laurie be your guide.

Hi Roger, Thank you so much for writing a review of your experience with Israel Photography Tour on our TripAdvisor page. I am glad you found the tour productive and were able to get quality shots. I am sorry the sunset was not great at Caesarea, but hope you got a good time lapse regardless. I hope to reunite on your next visit! Best wishes, Laurie

After reading the reviews the wife and I booked a day tour of Jerusalem Old City with Laurie. We were far from disappointed. Laurie was very generous with photography tips, techniques and his intimate knowledge of the Old City.

The tour was very well paced to suit our level of experience allowing us to spend as long as we needed at various sites. It was a long overdue refresher course inspiring me to be more creative in my photography. The day was capped off with a bonus side trip to the Judaean Hills outside Jerusalem before we were dropped back to our hotel.

I highly recommend the tour with Laurie to get the most out of your visit to Jerusalem. The lessons learned will also greatly benefit my photography in the future.

I highly recommend this tour as a way to explore Israel and get photography coaching. Bernadette took me to the best neighborhoods in Tel Aviv and pointed out interesting photography subjects and different ways to photograph them. I had so much fun during the Tel Aviv tour, so I ended up doing a second day tour with Bernadette in Haifa! Highly recommend that one as well. Bernadette is an awesome photographer and person, and we still keep in touch today!

Laurie did an amazing job taking me to out of the way locations, pointing out unique subjects and looking at new ways to shoot the surroundings. He also knew all of the history of the location and shared as we made our way through town. This was one of the highlights on a month long trip. I not only feel I was able to get strong images from Jerusalem but the tips and techniques I picked up helped throughout the rest of my trip. I would highly recommend this photo tour to anyone advanced or beginner. Thanks

First of all Laurie is a great person and very generous. He was very responsive and accommodating. He went out of his way to meet with my father who is a photographer on our visit to Israel. We really look forward to returning and touring more of Israel with Israel Photography Tours.

My friends and I spent our first 2 days in Israel with Laurie. I am an amateur photographer and shot on a new/rented DSLR. Laurie helped me navigate functionality to my level of comfort, then worked with me to ensure understanding and adaptation. We focused a lot on shadows, which was essential given the strong sunlight and light stone buildings in TLV and Jerusalem. Our stay overlapped Purim, which enabled a fantastic backdrop for interesting content. His guidance and the locations visited were a highlight of my experiences in Israel. I would highly recommend Laurie for all photographers - the amateurs and the professionals!

I very much appreciate you taking the time to write a testimonial on your experience with us. Likewise, it was a fun experience for me to tour on such a special occasion, and with such wonderful guests! From the few images I saw on your camera’s LCD, which any professional would be happy with, I can see you have a great eye for composition and timing. With some practice and patience, you will take control of your camera and I am confident you will enjoy your photography even more! Thanks again, and hope to reunite again one day. Best wishes, Laurie
