I am a professionally trained photographer living between Edinburgh and Tuscany. Specializing in food and travel photography, I also love to teach and lead regular photo walks. I believe great photography is more about about learning to see and tell a story than fancy gear.

Where you'll be

We will meet in Stockbridge and explore some of the New Town, West End, Dean Village, and Water of Leith. The area is full of lovely intimate cafes, vintage and design shops, elegant Georgian architecture, and atmospheric cobblestone streets. If there are other areas you'd like to visit, do get in touch, and we can come up with a plan. I also love to share movie locations linked with stories set in the city.

As a fairly new photographer, I had an amazing experience with Rachel. She was really patient and taught me a lot about photography and showed me tricks about how to use my camera. Thank you Rachel!

Die tour hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Nachdem wir bei einem Tee über die Ausrüstung und bisherige Erfahrungen gesprochen haben, konnte ich hier bereits einige Hinweise zum Umgang mit der Kamera erhalten. Fernab der üblichen spots sind wir an wunderschönen und abwechslungsreichen Orten vorbei gegangen. Hier konnte ich noch einige tipps erhalten und habe wunderschöne Fotos schießen können. Bei Fragen stand sie stets zur Seite. Darüber hinaus gab sie mir noch Hinweise und Informationen zu den Gebäuden und der Umgebung sowie auf Anfrage gute Empfehlungen zu interessanten Läden in der Gegend, welche fernab des touristischen Trubels lagen

I learned a lot from Rachel (who is generally wonderful company, btw) about the best ways to use my phone camera. We also downloaded some photo editing apps and I quickly learned how to use those, too. During our outing, Rachel shared tips on composition and how to experiment to get some great shots. After our tour, I went out into Edinburgh to put to use what I'd learned. It was a great way to spend what little time I had in the city. Thanks so much, Rachel.

Really enjoyed the tour with Rachel. I live near Edinburgh but still so many hidden little streets and lanes I had no idea existed.
