About Portland Photo Tour
Going on a trip and want to take more memorable photos? Would you love to take your camera off "Auto" and have more control over the final image? Are you from out of town and want to know the best spots to capture this one-of-a-kind city? Hello! I'm Jennifer Costello. I have been a professional photographer for 18 years, capturing 500+ weddings and 200+ portraits. Portland Photo Tour began in 2011 as a different way to learn photography than was traditionally being offered. Since then, I have had the pleasure of instructing 2000+ photography enthusiasts and still counting! Portland Photo Tour is a unique, in-the-field, photography learning experience. Participants receive hands-on instruction from a professional photographer with the streets and iconic attractions of beautiful Portland serving as their classroom. The atmosphere is creative, enthusiastic and non-intimating. Portland Photo Tours are perfect for beginner to advanced hobbyists.

Jennifer is informative and great at explaining the functions of the camera, in addition to keeping us interested and providing a generally fun and educating experience. I got a ticket to this tour as a Christmas present, and would consider going on another tour of hers whenever the opportunity presents itself!

Today I completed Jennifer's F-Stops & Shutter Speeds 101 and 102 classes. On my drive home, all I could think of........why didn't I do this years ago? Jennifer's teaching style was spot on for me and she provided plenty of examples that struck home. Her "in the field" approach really allows the new photographer to put her instruction into play. I'm so happy I'm already scheduled to attend 6 of her photo tours around Oregon. This will be fun and a huge learning opportunity for me as Jennifer teaches us how to shoot different scenes with different light conditions. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer did a wonderful job leading, teaching and coaching us in our "Holiday Lights City Wander" class. She made sure to attend to all 6 of us, and her ebullient enthusiasm was infectious. Highly recommended.

This was a great experience. The photo tour was to photography Christmas lights and decorations in Portland. We started with a discussion on camera settings and technique, then walked through Portland using those skills and technique. It was an opportunity for me to stretch my photography skills into new areas. Jennifer was a great teacher and workshop leader. She founds great spots for us to take christmas photos lights, trees, people and decorations. Her knowledge of both Portland and photography made this a great experience for me.
