As an interested amateur photographer who has owned a few 35mm and now a few DSLR cameras and with my partner who likes a point and shoot camera we signed up for the Zenit camera tour of Riga. This was a great tour! After a chat with James about what we had seen of Riga already (mostly Old Town) and what we would like to see (everything else) we were handed cameras and taught how to use them by our tour guide, Arris. He was BRILLIANT!!! His advice on how best to use the cameras, the basic 'rules' of photography and knowledge of the city made the 2.5+ hours spent together not only fun but we also learnt about the city, its people and took some great photos. I recommend this tour for everyone who wants to take some great photos of Riga and get a locals perspective of the city as well

Description

Feeling nostalgic? Don’t remember the Analogue Age when every push of a button counted? Learn how to use a Soviet 35 mm camera and hopefully take some awesome pictures on our three-hour film photography tour!

We’ll show you many lesser-known sights such as unexplored Soviet areas, markets and the old workers’ district. This tour is as much about history and culture as it is about taking great pictures.

You don’t need any special skills or prior knowledge – our photographic (and very photogenic) guides will teach you everything you need to know, including how to take the best portraits (or selfies). From technical aspects to film development and even digitising the results – we’ve got you covered!

We can pick you up from your hotel, or you can meet us at our office – just let us know your preference when booking.
