Fitzroy, Australia

Experience hosted by Helena

60 mins
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We'll discover one of the best parts of Melbourne that makes for great pictures. As we walk around Fitzroy, one of Melbourne's most creative and unique areas, I'll take your photos in a natural and candid style. I'll advise you on which spots are great for portraits, as well as take your pictures anywhere that strikes your eye.
Don't waste time trying to find the best spots or end up with boring "touristy" pictures. I'll make sure you'll have fun during our time together and will feel excited about sharing your new portraits with your friends and family.

I'll invite you for coffee or tea before we head out to take photos, so we can get to know each other and you'll feel more comfortable in front of the camera (which makes for even better photos).

I now offer both personal shoots as well as a group experience. You will see each option by the price reflected in the calendar. Pricing is per person (AU$119 group, AU$179 personal). For the group experience, I'll send you 15-20 photos, for the personal session you will receive 30-35 photos.

I am often flexible with time, so if you're after a date that isn't scheduled in the calendar yet, just get in touch and we can usually make it happen.
Other things to note
If you want some variety in your photos, bring a jumper, scarf, a hat or something that you can easily throw over your clothes so you get different outfits.

I'm a professional portrait and lifestyle photographer with a background in documentary photography (www.helenalapetite.com). I always aim for candid, genuine and natural moments, and avoid anything that looks too fake or posed. I believe the best images communicate a story and show who you really are.

I've been a photographer for over 7 years, run workshops in Melbourne and London, and love connecting with people via photography (and good coffee + food). ;)

I also love Pinterest where I have grown an audience of over 700,000 followers + publish an online magazine on food culture and travel.

I've had my photographs taken through other photographers on AirBNB's experiences, however none has made me feel more comfortable than with Helena. Normally, I feel pretty camera shy but Helena but she was great at making me feel pretty comfortable, pretty soon we just kinda got into the groove of things and honestly at the end, it just kinda felt like friends hanging out and shooting photos and you just kinda forgot about the camera. Thanks again Helena!

Helena was easygoing and made me feel comfortable. As we walked along the streets to take the photos, she also explained bits of trivia of the neighbourhood that I would have missed if I had traveled alone.

Helena went out of her way to make me feel candid, as im super awkward in photos! She did amazing with location and just made me feel comfortable. She had some amazing edits on the photos and was quick to send them to me. Thankyou so much!
