Our photography tours have been designed to guide you through the most photogenic locations in the city, often away from the typical tourist trails, while at the same time aiding you in perfecting your photographic skills.

These tours are an excellent way of combining a visit through the wonders of Puerto Vallarta. Apart from learning how to navigate quickly around modern DSLR and mirror-less cameras, we will show you how to use your inner eye to create images to be proud of. We will go over various techniques to capture images using light, composition, perspective, selective focus, shadows & highlights and other methods! The tour is of benefit to semi-professional photographers as well as beginners and advanced amateurs.
