Experience hosted by Jim

2.5 hours
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

I would like to take you to the best locations in the Los Angels Arts District for exciting locations, artwork viewing and photos. I can help you with selfies, poses and composition. If you are an aspiring amateur photographer I'll show you how to work with exposure, depth of field and composition for professional looking results.

If you are solo, or a group of family or friends who want to take selfies in front of the best graffiti walls and iconic movie and film locations, I can take those photos for you using your Cameras/Phones. Or I can take the pictures using my Pro Camera and give the pictures to you by Drop Box link or on a flash card postal mailed to you (card priced additional or guest can provide their own).

I have a (2) Person Minimum for this Experience.
Or hire me exclusively for a private photo tour with a (4) Person booking. I can also customize the photo tour with your special interests & requests - just ask!

If you would like to visit and shoot at other iconic locations around Los Angeles like Santa Monica, Venice or Malibu Beach, I am also experienced in those locations and would be happy to guide you there.

If you want to take unique pictures in Downtown LA I would recommend booking a shoot with Jim. We drove around a lot of places that I didn't know existed in LA even though I have lived here over a decade. If you are a tourist visiting LA you will get to take pictures that are unique to downtown LA.
