What you'll do

"The best camera is the one you have on you".
This famous quote is more true than ever, cause nowadays everybody is carrying an extremely powerful device in his pocket that is capable to deliver an incredible image quality. However there's a distinct difference between snapping a quick shot of a landmark and carefully crafting a photograph.
The goal of this photowalk through the center of Berlin is to provide you with the basic photographic skill set to get the most out of your smartphone while capturing some of Berlin's most iconic landmarks as well as some lesser known locations. With a deeper understanding for the basics of photography, like composition and light, it is definitely possible to get away with some images well beyond the typical snapshot. This way you will not only end up with some stunning shots for your social media, but also with the knowledge to make your next trip a photographic success. And the best thing is, you don't need a super expensive, high-end camera for that. All you need is your phone.

Other things to note:
Don't worry if you have no prior experience in phone-photography or photography in general. I'm happy to adjust the tour according to your skill level and together we gonna step up your phone photography game :)

I’m a travel photographer with a background in architecture. Born and raised in Berlin I have lived here for almost my whole life (whenever I'm not traveling). I love this city, and I've been photographing it extensively for almost a decade now. Not only do I know the city and its photo spots very well, but I can also provide some background information about the history and architecture of the places we'll be photographing. I love to share my passion for photography, and I enjoy helping other people to improve their photographic skills. So if you wanna get the best out of your phone come on a tour and let me help you to capture some stunning shots of Berlin.

Where you'll be

We will start our photowalk in the epicenter of Berlin, at the world-famous Brandenburg Gate. From here we will either continue on to the Reichstag and the government district to capture some photographs of contemporary architecture, or head down Unter den Linden Street to photograph the Berlin Cathedral and the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt. And in between there's an abundance of other photo opportunities waiting to be explored.

I had a great time with Fabian and learned a lot about using my smartphone to capture great memories in Berlin. I had some worries before the tour started, because I was the only guest, but Fabian is such a friendly and open guide - my worries were swiped away in a few seconds after starting the tour. Would definitely recommend this tour to my friends visiting Berlin!

Highly recommended. Fabian is very professional, considerate, accommodating, passionate and easy to talk to. I felt that I’m walking and doing the photography with a friend the whole time. It was a great experience + the benefit that I learned something new. Thanks Fabian! 😊

I loved everything about this tour! Fabian has a lot of experience and it accommodates the tour to you. He gave me a lot of useful photography tips and it is amazing how your photos can be with just your phone if you know what you're doing. Fabian knows a lot about architecture and I love that he is a perfectionist when it comes to photography! I recommend this tour to anyone interested in photography or architecture and even if you live in Berlin Fabian will help you to look at it from an entirely different and beautiful angle. Thanks, Fabian, I really enjoyed it!

Es war eine rundum gelungene Entdeckung! Ich habe echt viel dazugelernt. Fabian ist auf alle Fragen und Wünsche sehr kompetent eingegangen. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit; wegen Corona und kaum Touristen sogar noch bessere Möglichkeiten für schöne Fotos als sonst! Ich reise mit nun mit künstlerisch hochwertigen Aufnahmen im Gepäck ab und das als Neuling. Gerne jederzeit wieder. 👍
