Experience hosted by Thia

2 hours

What you'll do

I will be your guide around historic Charleston Waterfront Park and surrounding areas. You will go through beautiful narrow cobble stone streets and secret locations tucked in throughout the heart of the city.

It has taken years of networking through the city to gain access to some of the places we will visit. You will not see these places in any brochure so be sure to reserve your spot if you want to see these elusive places off the beaten path.

Come see the charm that is over flowing in this historically rich town.

Every photographer, aged ten and over, can come to this experience. Bring any camera you want including a camera phone.
In our photo walk, I will show you interesting perspectives and angles to capture picture perfect images.
As a long time photography instructor I can assist with camera settings. If you are using a camera phone I can offer some tips for those too.

As an added bonus I will be photographing you through your experience and will share those images with you with an email you share with me.

If you choose to tip it is greatly appreciated.
100% of those proceeds go into a charitable fund to send young adults to church camp annually.
Other things to note
In the event that it is raining we may alter the course of the path to allow for more interior views.

Hello, My name is Thiandra, which in Greek means "Goddess of light".

I am a people person and have been teaching photography to all ages for a little over a decade. Many moons ago, at the age of 13, I chose to be a photographer and have never wavered.

My works have been showcased in multiple galleries in Connecticut and have been on display in various buildings in Historical Charleston. I have taught photography at Housatonic College.
I have been a guest speaker for photo clubs throughout the state of South Carolina.
Recently, I was juried in to be a featured artist at The Artisans Center where my photographs are available for purchase.

This is a very knowledgeable and personable teacher. She is great at finding and showing all the “secret spots” for great photos and teaches you how to use your camera (or in our case, cell phone cameras) to get the best photos possible. So fun!

Great tour! Thia provides fun anecdotes and little known urban legends about locations throughout the downtown Charleston area beginning at the infamous pineapple fountain. She also has a fun and contagious personality. Since the best camera is the one you have on you, Thia gives photography tips that will accommodate any camera you have whether it’s a smartphone or DSLR. Great for solo travelers since she actually takes pictures of you during the tour as well. Highly recommended!

We had such a fun time on our photo walk with Thia! She took the time to give me a quick run down on my camera to get the best photos possible. Loved getting to learn a little bit about the city while also getting some amazing photographs that I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. Definitely worth it!

Thia was amazing! She balanced the instructional part with taking pictures very well. It was educational and you get a bunch of great pictures of Charleston. We lucked out and it was only us on the tour so we got it make it super specific to what we wanted to see and do.
