Where you'll be

We will start our Photowalk in the colourfull streets of Bo-Kaap. Depending on your mood and our weather the route will differ from client to client. Each walk will take us on a localized experience and conclude with an amazing view of Table Mountain. In every walk, I will teach you photography and then you can apply the knowledge while we explore the city. As a bonus, I will email you 20 photographs taken by me.

I had a private session with Laikin. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiatic about photography. I took a lot of photos. We would review them and then Laikin would give me tips on how to improve my photos. I learned a lot in the one hour session. That evening when I reviewed all the photos I took that day, I kept thinking about the techniques Laikin taught me and how I could re-take better photos. I really enjoyed the session with Laikin and recommend her highly.

Laikin was a great teacher. Even though I’m an experienced photographer, my experience with her was like attending a good (PD) Professional Development seminar to sharpen my skills. It was a wonderful experience. I really learned a lot. She made me feel welcome and comfortable. She also took quite a few professional photos of me which was an added bonus. I will recommend her services to the beginner photographer as well as the advanced photographer.

Had the best time on this Airbnb experience. Laikin was really knowledgeable about photography. She taught me the basics of photography and provided me with easy tips to follow on my own. Loved the photos she took of me on the tour as well. Great experience in Cape Town!
