Berlin is a very popular photography tour destination, home to more galleries than any other city in Europe and more bridges than Venice. However, because it covers nine times the area of Paris with only 1/5th of the population, it doesn’t feel that busy.  There are also plenty of SBahn, UBahn and trams to make reaching the outer lying areas a breeze.

If you are looking for an opportunity to challenge yourself, shooting Black & White in a city location, Berlin has a lot to offer. Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to try your hand at capturing the decisive moment with a little street photography too.

Your guides on this Berlin photography tour will be Adrian Beasley and Paul Sanders. The 4-day tour will give us plenty of time to explore, photograph and work on our shooting and editing skills with two enthusiastic Black & White shooters.

Berlin Photography Tour - Berlin Travel Photography Holiday

Berlin is a very popular photography tour destination, home to more galleries than any other city in Europe and more bridges than Venice. However, because it covers nine times the area of Paris with only 1/5th of the population, it doesn’t feel that busy.  There are also plenty of SBahn, UBahn and trams to make reaching the outer lying areas a breeze.

At the end of the Second World War, Berlin lay in ruins.  Half of all the buildings had been destroyed. Re-building the capital resulted in a mix of old alongside new, bold designs.  Then came the cold war and the wall.  The East Side Gallery is the longest remaining section of the wall and at 1.3km, it is also the longest open air gallery in the world. The often stark and minimal structures of Berlin are the ideal foil for an eye seeking Black & White imagery.

Across the city many world famous locations present themselves along with the lesser known. Shell-Haus’ rippling façade is an excellent example of modernist design from the 1930’s and further along we come to the abandoned Bauhaus museum.  In the centre of Berlin, the Reichstag is the meeting place for the German parliament and was restored in the 1990’s by Norman Foster.  The public can access its fabulous glass dome with its spiral walkway and views over the city.  Close by we find the Brandenburg Gate and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.  Heading east towards Mitte, we cross into former East Berlin to find a few original gems hiding amongst the stark, quickly built Russian blocks.  South again takes us to the Jewish Museum, looking like a lightning strike from the air.  In the distance you might be able to see the ruined remains of the US listening post on Devil’s mountain.  The man made hill was built after the end of the second world war from the rubble of destroyed buildings.

If you are looking for an opportunity to challenge yourself, shooting Black & White in a city location, Berlin has a lot to offer.  Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to try your hand at capturing the decisive moment with a little street photography too.

This 4-day tour will give us plenty of time to explore, photograph and work on our shooting and editing skills with two enthusiastic Black & White shooters.

The tour will start at 4pm meeting at the hotel and finish at approx 3pm on the 5th May.

For tours outside of the UK, we will select a recommended flight which will depart from a London airport to the destination. In most cases (unless stated otherwise), the tour leaders will greet you at the destination airport from this flight and return you to the airport at the end of the tour.

Please DO NOT book your flights until advised to do so by the office. Tours have to become viable before we select the recommended flight.

Once a tour has enough bookings to make it viable, you will receive an email to alert you that the recommended flights have been uploaded to your client area on the website.

You are welcome to make alternative travel arrangements. If doing so, please ensure you are at the destination airport for the arrival time of the recommended flight to ensure you can take the transfer to the hotel. Alternatively you can arrange your own transfers and meet the group at the hotel on the first night.
