What you'll do
If it's good enough for professional film and music video scouts it's good enough for you! We will be following in the footsteps of Snoop Dogg's Beautiful music video filmed right here in Rio de Janeiro. First place will be meeting in the architecturally stunning Parque Lage, where we will tour the mansions's grounds, take photos with the jungle and Christ backdrop and stop for a snack and coffee (not provided by the host) to get to know one another. Next stop, we will get a view of Rio like no other at Mirante Dona Marta, where we will stop take photos at leisure and marvel of stunning 360 elevated views of the city beneath us. Finishing with the bright and colourful Escadaria Selarón, a stunning artistic homage to Rio. The tour consists of the very best of Rio's backdrops and will be a day to remember! Throughout the tour I know the very best spots to get those jaw dropping amazing photos for you to showcase to your friends and family. I will be providing information about each place and adding my own stories of life here too.
I'm a Rio resident, having made Rio de Janeiro my home after falling in love with the city and I want you to too! Having left finance in London to pursue my dream of living in Brazil. I want to share my experiences of Carioca life as a tourist, a local and working within a favela. I know great not so obvious spots that will make fantastic memories and beautiful pictures for you to have warm feelings of Rio forever and keep coming back like I did! I am happy to get those instagram perfect shots for you with my professional camera and send you the pictures afterwards.
