Tour start from St Giles Cathedral or your hotel and last approx 3 hours

Iconic Tours started off as a purely photography tour company and founder, Will, still loves to offer private sessions. He has worked for Lonely Planet as a contract photographer shooting covers and content, he was chief photographer at Whisky Magazine Japan and his freelance work has taken him everywhere from refugee camps in Iraq to the runways of fashion week.


This photo tour usually starts in Edinburgh Old Town but as it is a private tour this can be adjusted to suit your needs. It starts off by instructing you how to get the best out of your camera if you require this (and skipping it if you don't) and then the emphasis is on capturing stunning photographs of Edinburgh rather than the usual tourist snaps that most people will capture. You really get to see Edinburgh in a different way and with the help and advice of Will.

If you prefer the tour to take place in the New Town, Dean Village etc we can do that too.



Our tours are not only for those with SLR cameras with manual settings, at a time when nearly everyone carries a camera within their phone, we want to show you how to get amazing photos with your phone on this tour that's different from anything else you've tried.
