Patrick provided a hugely fun and informative time which had my 15 year old daughter engaged and smiling from the word go. We covered some really cool locations as 3 hours passed in the blink of an eye. She wishes he was her photography teacher at school I would definitely recommend

I had a fantastic time on this tour. Patrick was such a great tour guide/photography teacher. I had a lot of questions and he answered all of them. He taught me a lot of new things in terms of photography. Now when I'm walking around a city, I'm constantly thinking of buildings and things to photograph.

If you want to see London with a local passionate about this city while learning to master your camera. London Lens Project is your best choice. The tours not only take you to the iconic tourist attractions but also allow you to practice the photography technics learned during the tours and from your perspective! I learned so much about photography from basis to my particular interests. Now I am more confident about my camera and moving away from auto mode. Thank you London Lens Project!

I booked Patrick as a birthday present for my boyfriend who had an SLR camera and wanted to understand how to use it on manual setting. Patrick was so informative and really explained how all the different settings worked, with fun exercises we could do throughout the city and Borough to try out what we had learned. It was a great day out and Patrick is lovely, I would highly recommend this tour!

I was visiting London with my two kids aged 8 and 10 and was a bit worried that a night photography tour would be impossible to do with them. However, as we only had three nights in the UK and I really wanted to learn about night photography and get a chance to see the city by night, I corresponded with Patrick a few days in advance and he was very helpful and replies quickly to e-mails, so I decided to give it a try.

The tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Patrick was great at explaining not only photography settings and such, but also helping me compose more interesting photos. I was not confident in using fully manual settings but now feel that I am on the right track. When we stopped at various photo sites, not only did I get help with my settings etc, but Patrick was also excellent in helping the children as well and they took a lot of photographs using flash lights and taking ghost photos. The kids got to borrow both cameras and tripods, and he even brought them cookies!

We all had lots of fun and learned a lot about photography and the city of London. Thank you so much Patrick for your excellent work! I would warmly recommend this tour to anyone interested in improving their photography and learning about London.

This was such a great way to spend a night in London. Patrick runs an amazing tour. He is full of enthusiasm for photography, London and life in general.
He was great at pitching the course at the right level. I started off as a complete novice in night photography but by the end felt comfortable knowing which settings to use to achieve different results.
I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Definitely a highlight of my time in London.

Hi Alison,

Thank you so much for your kind review :)

I also had a great night touring with you and spent the rest of the weekend sharing your stories of work, family and culture with my friends. A gift of the tours is to see and share this city/world with others who share similar passions and points of view.

I wish you all the best on your 11 year plan :/ and for the many more years thereafter :P

Best wishes from Sunny London Town

Patrick runs the photography courses at our school. He volunteered to run the photo stall at our summer fair. He was incredibly skilled at making children feel relaxed and confident in front of the camera. We are so grateful for his willingness to donate his time to our school community!

Patrick is awesome! It's really great to experience London through the eyes of someone who really loves and knows the city. Not only that, he was able to effectively teach me and my daughter (who are total novices) about photography. My husband had more experience than us, but Patrick still had great suggestions and help. Thank you, Patrick, for helping us see and appreciate London even more!

My wife ordered this tour for me as a birthday present and I wasn't disappointed.
Patrick is a interesting companion passionate about photography and London history. Thames south bank has a good vibe and beautiful views. Along with interesting stories and strong photographic knowledge it made the walk very pleasant.

Thank you, Patrick. I definitely recommend your project.
