Absolutely LOVED the guide and the location. I learned so much about light photography and light painting (which I'd never done before). I am an amateur photographer shooting with a Canon mirrorless camera. I got great shots, had an amazing time and Axel was just...More

These guys were great. We went to the shrine and got some great shots. One actually won an award. Axel was patient and very helpful. If you are into photography this is very worthwhile

I had a great afternoon with Axel photographing Masano, a maiko. I was able to get to know her and build up a rapport before starting to photograph her. I enjoyed taking photographs and Axel's knowledge in helping me get some great photos.
