What you'll do

Make your trip to Los Angeles truly memorable with this one-of-a-kind photoshoot tour of iconic Venice Beach. Unlike other experiences, YOU ARE THE STAR!!

Not only will I guide you around some of the best must-see locations at this southern Californian hotspot but I will be your personal pro-photographer, shooting eye-catching professional quality images of YOU as we go! I use professional Canon equipment (camera, lenses, filters, speedlite, etc) to ensure the best possible quality results.

If you need specific types of pics from the shoot, eg. headshots, lifestyle, fashion, product promotion, etc, then let me know and I can work it into the itinerary.

We will meet outside James Beach restaurant and our route will take in the Venice sculpture, beach & graffiti wall, lifeguard towers, murals, Venice sign, and the beautiful canals - all brilliant for pics!

This has been my stomping ground for nearly 20 years and I will reveal the history and hidden gem sights that most tourists (and many locals) miss when they visit Venice Beach. During the experience I will share my own personal anecdotes from 15 years working at one of the world’s biggest movie studios, leaving you with unique insights to go with your memories and awesome pics (delivered digitally in <48hrs).

This experience is perfect for solo travelers, friends, couples, and YouTubers/ Instagrammers/ Influencers!

After 15 years immersed in the entertainment industry working for one of the world's biggest movie studies, launching movies like Star Wars and TV series like 24, Glee, and The Simpsons, I decided to pursue my huge passion for photography. I have lived in Los Angeles 20 years and been a professional photographer for the last 7, working on amazing gigs around this awesome city like product launches, fashion shoots, red carpet events, and helping talented locals achieve their dreams with eye-catching images.

Awesome value and experience! It was the first time my wife did a photo shoot and we we'll definitely do it again. Richard took us to 10+ shooting locations and had a great eye for finding just the right shot/angle. We can't wait to see what the final shots look like once he touches up the ones we like!

What an amazing experience. Richard is a professionell photographer who will tailor the photo shoot tour to your needs and expectations. In addition he will show you around in Venice and give some historical input. He also knows some fun stories to tell. I went for the early morning tour and got phenomenal pictures. Richard knows the perfect spots to make you look great at the pictures. He is easy going and nice to talk to which makes the tour a lot of fun. I would highly recommend booking Richards tour.
