Edinburgh Private PhotoShoot Experience

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Experience hosted by Simon

60 mins
Includes equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Your own private Photoshoot! Simon will meet you in the centre of town in the Grassmarket where we will head to our first location in the shadow of the magnificent Castle where we will get you comfortable in front of the camera and get shooting! Social distancing in place as per local guidelines. From there we will head to another 3 locations picked specifically for you depending on what is going on in town - we have a thriving festival and lots of things going on depending on the time of year so are quite flexible, but no matter where we are, the city as a backdrop makes for some incredible images for you to share.

My photos are unique and stand out. I love meeting new people & showing them around our unique & characterful city. I hope that you feel you have made a new friend as well as taking home some amazing images!

Photoshoots last one hour typically and on completion of the shoot, I will deliver a minimum of 25 high resolution edited jpeg images, delivered within 48 hours via a web link for you to download.
Other things to note
Unless a severe weather warning is reported, we will go ahead with our shoot as planned even if it rains. Please arrive wearing your chosen outfit, ready to shoot. For larger groups I may hire an assistant, at my discretion, at no extra cost. Cancellations must be requested directly from Airbnb.

I'm a professional photographer and film maker based in Edinburgh. I came here to study as an actor in my teens and settled here again a few years later. Since then I've worked in film and television in front and behind the camera in a variety of roles. I know the city very well having lived and shot here for over 20 years and can't think of anyone better suited to get the best shots for you. The shoots are generally good fun and I'll fill you in on some interesting things about the city on the way!

Where you'll be

Depending on the time of year, locations could include Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Victoria Street or the Grassmarket and I can take you to some hidden wee places you won't find by yourself!

Edinburgh is a busy city so I will speak to you beforehand to confirm. If you would like a different time, let me know and I will try to arrange it for you. Group size can also be adjusted to suit

Simon was wonderful. Bought his photoshoot experience for someone visiting the country alone. They were able to easily meet and get some fantastic photos which she would otherwise never have been able to get without him.

I was extremely impressed with simons photos! I am not an easy person to photograph, but they were stunning. He put extra effort into making sure they were perfect. And his “glamorous asst” was wonderful for providing history about the area.

We loved our experience with Simon! He took us to some beautiful spots in Edinburgh, all walkable and close to one another. He and his assistant shared some history about the architecture as we walked and gave us recommendations for other activities during our stay. They were both very patient with our group and went above and beyond to provide some beautiful photos for us so we could have a unique reminder of our girls trip to Edinburgh.

Simon was very personable and put my family at ease immediately. He was very professional and yet easy going. He took us around some beautiful spots of Edinburgh and gave us some great tips about the city. He is very fast at responding and his return time for the photos is impressive. I would highly recommend this experience.
