What you'll do

I will be your guide around historic Charleston Waterfront Park and surrounding areas. You will go through beautiful narrow cobble stone streets and secret locations tucked in throughout the heart of the city.

It has taken years of networking through the city to gain access to some of the places we will visit. You will not see these places in any brochure so be sure to reserve your spot if you want to see these elusive places off the beaten path.

Come see the charm that is over flowing in this historically rich town.

Every photographer, aged ten and over, can come to this experience. Bring any camera you want including a camera phone.
In our photo walk, I will show you interesting perspectives and angles to capture picture perfect images.
As a long time photography instructor I can assist with camera settings. If you are using a camera phone I can offer some tips for those too.

As an added bonus I will be photographing you through your experience and will share those images with you with an email you share with me.

If you choose to tip it is greatly appreciated.
100% of those proceeds go into a charitable fund to send young adults to church camp annually.
Other things to note
In the event that it is raining we may alter the course of the path to allow for more interior views.

Hello, My name is Thiandra, which in Greek means "Goddess of light".

I am a people person and have been teaching photography to all ages for a little over a decade. Many moons ago, at the age of 13, I chose to be a photographer and have never wavered.

My works have been showcased in multiple galleries in Connecticut and have been on display in various buildings in Historical Charleston. I have taught photography at Housatonic College.
I have been a guest speaker for photo clubs throughout the state of South Carolina.
Recently, I was juried in to be a featured artist at The Artisans Center where my photographs are available for purchase.

Thia was a wonderful guide and a great teacher. We learned helpful techniques about our iPhones and took some very creative photos. Way better than I had expected.

Thia was very nice and personable and told funny stories. This was such an awesome experience. I didn't see the date I was going to be in Charleston available, so I messaged Thia and she was available to accommodate us which I was thrilled. She gave us excellent photo tips that I will continue to use to get great photos. Thia really has a great eye to capture amazing photos that we would not have thought of on our own. She really enjoys photography and loves helping others capture great memories through pictures. I highly recommend this tour. You will be glad you did! This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip! Thanks so much Thia!

My family took Thia’s wonderful photo walk of Charleston. I highly recommend the experience. She is friendly, flexible, and highly knowledgeable. Having done some history tours already, we wanted a tangible way to engage with the city. Thia was an excellent guide who helped us learn how to recognize and capture photogenic subjects, which are abundant in Charleston. My 10 year old daughters loved improving their photography skills using our iPhones. Thia also took some fantastic professional shots of my family that we’ll cherish for years to come. Thank you, Thia, for showing us a great time through your lens!

Thia was knowledgeable, provided experience with locals - which led to even better stories! We were able to see spots in the city we otherwise would not have know to go to! Highly recommend!
