I really like to join my passion of photography and art, meeting people, travel without moving away and working as a tour guide.

I would like to take your around my beautiful city, Budapest tell you all the knowledge I accumulated of many years of working as a tour guide.
I love Budapest and it has so many faces, Jewish artsy district,
The Castle Hill, the elegant Parliament and centre - just tell me your needs and we will go there :)

Did you know that Robert Capa, Martin Munkácsy, Andre Kertész and many more world famous photographers were Hungarian?
Come and learn about the 'art of light' in the country of these great masters :)

I hope you have a camera and a passion for photography. Would you like to improve your skills? Or maybe you are a total beginner?
Or you would just like to learn some more about composition and framing? I will teach you on the level you need the tricks in photography.
Did you know how much a little digital camera can do as well? Let us discover it :)

We can do street photo, architectural photo, portraits, city scapes or just a mix of everything. Budapest photo walk is suitable for any field.
The walk will be tailor made to your wishes, so It can be more about learning or more about sightseeing, it is totally up to you.

You will gain a lot of insight to your camera, you will be able to ask anything you have wanted to ask for a long time about photography.
You will see how much you can improve in 4 hours and your shots will be more stunning and interesting and more in connection with your personality.


Budapest Photo tours are 4 hour long and combine sightseeing with some photo shooting. Customized to your interests and private. It can be about instagraming Budapest, or we can sit down and discuss some technical settings on your camera and put learnt things into practice, or we just walk and you recieve tips and tricks from me while we discover Budapest.

Price is 145 euro for a group (1-4 people).

The tours have become so popular that I have started working with József. Read his introduction here:

"I'm a professional photographer and photo tour guide. I have completed my BA degree in photography at the Kaposvár University Faculty of Arts. I live and work in Budapest, doing commissioned works and my personal works / art projects as well.

I love sharing the years of experience with those who need a photo tour session either to learn the essentials or to reach an advanced level at using their camera.

No matter what your main focus is, if you'd like to do a walking tour, visit the most remarkable sites and return home with wonderful shots of this exceptional city or you'd like to focus much more on the photographical techniques and tricks ­ my goal is to support you with the level of knowledge that specifically you need.

You'll be satisfied with the resulting images ­ and I enjoy this mutual “work” the most.

Best regards and see you soon in Budapest. "
