Full description
See Budapest in a different light on a 4-hour private photography tour and start your journey to master photography to rival famous Hungarian photographers, such as Robert Capa, Martin Munkácsy, Andre Kertész, and more. Your guide will teach you new tricks as you discover architectural gems, secret city scapes and portraits of Budapest characters. Explore the functions of your camera before putting things into practice. Start with a drink in one of the city’s legendary ruin bars in the Jewish District. Then, stroll the Budapest streets to learn how to capture Danube panoramas, street art, majestic Andrássy Avenue, and medieval Pest. If you are a complete beginner, your guide will focus on the most important settings of your camera. The more advanced can choose to focus on a specific field. Learn how to use shutter speeds, ISO settings, flash, and white balance in manual mode. Get tips on composition and framing, and learn when to utilize equipment such as tripods, external flash, lenses, and filters.

Zsuzsa was very knowledgeable, passionate and fun!

Zsuzsa contacted us before our tour to determine our interests, expectations and levels of camera proficiency. When we met, she sat down with us to review camera skills and plan our route. Zsuzsa's knowledge of the history and architecture of Hungary and Budapest added a great deal to our tour, and she suggested interesting interesting site lines while helping with camera settings. She showed patience and a good sense of humor. We would highly recommend her as a photo/tour guide.

Excellent, friendly and professional

My partner and I were very impressed with our guide. She was friendly, approachable and patient. Both of us are beginner photographers and wanted to explore the city at the same time so the tour was perfect for what we wanted. We were very comfortable with our guide who understood our needs and also spoke good English so communication was easy.

5 star tour by a 5 star guide

We met our guide, Zsuzsa, as arranged and after a brief chat about what we wanted from the day we set off. She brought us on a walking tour of Budapest all the while pointing out subjects to photograph. She quickly came to terms with our standard and pitched the photography at our level. She also kept the "techie" stuff to a minimum, while showing us what we need to check before taking a photo. She was very knowledgable on the history of Budapest and Hungary but didn't overwhelm us with facts. We covered all the main sights of Pest and across the river towards Buda. After every photo stop Zsuzsa would advise us on how we could improve the shot and we had a chance to correct mistakes. We finished by having a drink (included in the price) in one of Budapest's "Ruin" Bars, where Zsuzsa went back over what she had shown us. If you are interested in a tour of Budapest while at the same time learning what all those settings on your camera are for book this tour. Great tour - great guide.
