I did this tour a while ago and found Ben quite intimidating. I was tempted to leave half way through. He knows his stuff regarding photography but I didn't really gel with him. I would choose another tour next time.

I received the night tour from my partner as a gift, and it was great to walk around Melbourne at dusk as a "tourist". I'd used my camera quite a bit whilst travelling and considered my self well practiced at night photography, but he gave me some great tips on how to make the best use of my camera. We... More

I have been taking pictures for decades but it was Ben who first pointed out to me how to take an interesting photo. In a couple of hours he managed to make me aware about the basics of composition, colour, texture in photos and how to use my camera more effectively. Next time I visit Melbourne CBD I will see...

I had a great time, Ben was so fantastic and even after the event emailed me with all the relevant details he talked about on his tour and also just some special tips. I did the night tour, and I learnt how to manage my camera in full manual control by the end of the tour. This meant I had... More

My family had given this tour for me as a present along with a new camera. I never knew my camera could do so much until I did the tour with Ben. He was both patient and informative. Wear comfy shoes as there is a bit of walking to see and photograph both the iconic and quirky sites.It was nice... More

Booked a night photography tour with Ben to photograph around Melbourne city. We tried new techniques and I learnt more about my Camera settings. Great results, so thrilled with some of the images. Never thought I could get such great results! I reccomend this tour to anyone who wants to extend their photography skills! Thanks Ben, enjoyed your teaching style!... More

Did not know what to expect but the whole day was great fun. Tour operator Ben took us to the iconic spots of Melbourne as well as some out of the way places. Learnt how to use my camera to maximise the effects and the resulting pictures look great.
