Doc Miles gave us a superb tour of San Francisco. We have been there previously, but he took us to places we would have never found ourselves. We are experienced photographers but he was able to make suggestions on technique that helped a lot. He also was experienced with the timing and travel needed to get us to locations at the best lighting times.

Doc is awesome. Knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, and very flexible about rescheduling when our tour date encountered unpredictable SF fog. Great service and great quality tour.

This was simply a perfect outing for me! I’ve always been fascinated by photography and within the last year purchased a much more advanced camera. Out in San Francisco on vacation, my wife suggested I find a photographic tour…something I’ve never done before, so I didn’t really know what to expect. A quick Google search and Doc’s name came up first on the list. Through a simple scheduling area on his website, I was easily set up for a 4 hour tour the very next day. Doc arrived to pick me up from my hotel about ten minutes earlier than scheduled…says a lot for how someone does business. My first impression of Doc proved to be true of his personality throughout the tour….very personable and easy to converse with. As our tour went on I realized we shared the same sense of humor so we had some great laughs as well. My tour included some iconic San Francisco shots as well as others that Doc had personally scoped out….I’ll go ahead and say that every single location produced spectacular shots! Doc’s input concerning composition and settings at each location along the way was greatly appreciated. Being an amateur wanting to up my game, I didn’t feel intimidated at all in asking what I thought were some basic questions for a seasoned professional. It turns out that Doc enjoys teaching, so any question is highly encouraged. I also learned that he offers workshops outside of his tours. In fact, his most popular workshop has been on iPhone photography. He’s extremely well versed in Lightroom as well. This tour FAR exceeded my expectations. Because of the combination of Doc’s knowledge and ease of explaining things, his professionalism, and personality…I plan on signing up for some destination tours of his in the future (national park outings). In short, I HIGHLY recommend a tour with Doc! Jimbo from Alabama

Everything about this workshop was a great experience. I would highly recommend. Communication- Prior to booking the tour and after it was booked the communication with Doc was easy and timely. Tour- Doc is very knowledgeable and personable which made the experience that much better. We went to a number of really interesting spots and captured some great photos. I had some gear issues and Doc went out of his way to assist which I truly appreciated. Extras- After the tour (later that night), Doc followed up with me about the locations we visited, food recommendations and helpful information about a trip that I was going on after the tour. He also helped me obtain a part for my tripod to ensure that I was able to have something available for the next part of my trip. I would book this tour again and have even inquired about his other offerings.
