London Photography Tour: Places To See And Snap

London photography tour outfits offer tourists a brilliant and unique way to take in London that can either include or bypass the big standard landmarks such as Big Ben and Tower Bridge. Run specifically by local photographers with in depth knowledge of the city, it's a great way to spend a day getting expert photography advice and finding the best spots to take photos.

If you're heading to London for the first time, it's only right that you want to take in familiar landmarks such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge and the London Eye. However, you don't want to be stuck in big groups of tourists while jostling for the best photo positions and fighting a battle with limited time and light. This is exactly why photography tours offer a dimension that caters to the photographer – whether amateur or expert. Tours like this, and photography tours Europe wide, are set up to help photographers find the best ways to capture these landmarks while taking into account light levels. It's also a way to see London in a relaxed way. Instead of being rushed between sights in a large group, you'll often find that such tours keep numbers low. Some lower-key photo ideas include snapping traditional English pubs, capturing the interesting architecture of the Covent Garden Market, seeing the Harry Potter-esque Leadenhall Market and photographing the skyline of London's sprawling business and financial sector, Canary Wharf. These locations are still fairly well visited by tourists, but you'll avoid the throngs that can be seen outside the likes of Buckingham Palace.
