This popular Sydney photography tour takes in the best locations and encapsulates the natural beauty and hedonistic lifestyle of Sydney with an emphasis on its stunning natural beauty. Sydney with its large harbour has the natural advantages of walks around the harbour foreshores, world class structures such as the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, superb beaches, National parks and we emphasis these qualities with lifestyle photography in outdoor settings.

Our 2 day program is designed to be flexible and custom tailored to our clients requests. The overriding consideration is to show you the lesser known, less touristy gems that Sydney has to offer. We know the very best, the most photogenic, the least crowded places to appreciate one of the world’s greatest cities. Sydney really is about going to a secluded beach by boat or on foot, having a hamper basket of gourmet goodies, a good bottle of wine and taking memorable images! It also boasts intact historic village communities such Paddington which we explore and photograph.
