After living in 7 countries and visiting 56, I founded Nature PhotoHikes where I share my love of landscape photography through lessons, photoshoots and guided hikes/walks. Lessons on your camera/smartphone include tips and tricks, composition, and settings like shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

I had such a great time on a hike at Lighthouse Park with Nafees. He has a very friendly spirit and has a beautiful passion for the outdoors and photography. It was so great to learn photography tricks from him, and I was pleasantly surprised and appreciative for the bonus of him taking some beautiful photos of me and my friend. Would highly recommend!

Nafees is a hiking expert and he made us feel hiking an easy thing to do. At first I was hesitant to do hiking but with his encouragement I was able to do it. The hike was relaxing and comfortable. He communicates well and knows how to handle different situations. We had photoshoots as well. Thanks Nafees for your encouragement to do hiking and for taking us to a paradise park.

I've been hiking with Nafees many times over the last 3-4 years. Each hike or trip is a wonderful experience full of special and fun moments. I'm following his page continuously, as I don't want to miss the next event. :)
