To book a photographic tour with Alexander and his team, please book directly at www.aperturetours.com I’m a professional photographer and work in the areas of fashion, travel, portrait and dreamscape. I’ve been taking photographers on tours since 2013 when I started to share my passion for photography with others each time I take a tour, I still manage to find some small thing that I've never noticed before, this magnificent city is bursting with secrets, vistas, and details and is a photographer's delight. Since 2015 I’ve asked other photographers I trust help me take tours and now run photography tours in many cities across Europe. I makes me so happy to teach my art and my passion to others.

We had a wonderful tour with Vianney in London. Vianney's love of photography comes through as soon as you meet him. He is an excellent teacher and is very patient. I learned more in a few hours with him than I could ever have learned on my own. I was able to also get some wonderful shots of London after dark and apply my new knowledge at other locations. I would highly recommend Aperture tours and Vianney to anyone looking to improve their skills and to get some excellent photos.

Vianney is an excellent teacher. We have been on other photography courses and still not understood how to work out the camera settings. Vianney showed us how to get the best from our cameras and get good night photography shots. I looked at some other tours before booking this one, but some had groups of around 15 learners. This was so much better as there was only 2 of us, so Vianney was able to spend a lot of time with each of us. He has a lovely personality and was very patient with us, explaining everything in terms we could understand. I would definitely recommend booking this tour.

I was really impressed with this tour and the guides. I would recommend it. Vianney (my guide) was very professional and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable quickly; despite being very new to photography. It was very clear that these guys are experts at taking pictures and showing you how to do it! In terms of the tour he came across as very competent and knowledgeable. I was impressed with how he was able to explain concepts that I think I would have struggled with at first. As a novice, the short briefing at the beginning of the tour was very useful to give me the foundations. Referring to notes and familiar pictures throughout was helpful to enforce ideas and concepts. It seems the tour is very flexible to what I am interested in doing and need to learn. Suggesting photos and letting me work out how to take them was good practical experience for me. Despite knowing London very well; I saw aspects of the city that I had not seen before and under appreciated. It was a great tour and I got some great pics out of it!

We did the night photography tour with Alexander, who took us to some great parts of London. It wasn't just a set tour, he personalised it to what we were interested in learning about and taught us some new techniques. We came back with some great photos. Friendly and knowledgeable guide.
