Description

On this half-day Photography Tour, you will not only learn new photography skills and techniques, but you will also get to explore some of Buenos Aires' most unique and colorful neighborhoods. You will begin the day with a creative photography workshop followed by an alternative guided exploration of some of the most photogenic neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. Finishing up with an image review over a glass of wine or refreshment, this is a perfect way to discover the city. Enjoy slowing down the pace and exploring some of the most interesting parts of the Argentine capital. Whatever your level of experience, your professional photographer guide will help you to capture some great photos along the way.

You will get to choose from three possible routes: 

  • Classic, in Recoleta
    • Discover the classically beautiful side of Buenos Aires that gives the city its nickname of the Paris of the South. Wander through the cobblestone streets of Recoleta and visit the cemetery, a city unto itself with narrow passageways, greenery, stained glass windows, creaky old doors, and stray cats.
  • Bohemian, in San Telmo
    • Venture through the creative soul of the city of San Telmo where antiques, street art, local markets, pigeonfilled plazas, 100-year-old cafes and tango dancers are all commonplace. The quintessential way to get great photos and dig into the real eclectic Buenos Aires.
  • Off the Beaten Path, in Villa Crespo
    • A walk in the 'real people' neighbourhood of Villa Crespo and watch how the porteños live. A reality made up of old men playing domino in a traditional bar, walls covered in street art and local grocery shops. This tour is especially suitable for photographers interested in portraying people.

Born and raised in Rome, I have always had a passion for photography, design, and travel. While I may have discovered my love for photography in Italy, it's my adopted home of Buenos Aires where I realized my passion for teaching it. 

After studying graphic design from the Instituto Europeo di Design in Rome, I moved to London to study photography at the University of Westminster. After school, I lived and worked in the city for 18 years as an art director and a photographer. I even worked as the Creative Director at Conde Nast UK, where I oversaw the art of four magazines and worked with prestigious clients like Harrods and Tate Modern Art Museum. Meanwhile, in London, I discovered another art form, the tango. I fell in love with the dance and started dancing professional, allowing me to tour and compete across Europe. Ultimately, it was this passion that helped me make the decision to move to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of the tango. 

For me, the city beamed with a lively creative energy, unlike any other city in the world, and I was hooked! Even today, Buenos Aires inspires me. Beyond my photography, I wanted to share this inspiration directly with travelers. I began leading photography tours, allowing guests to look at the city in a totally new light - literally and metaphorically! Leading tours motivates me to find new exciting parts of the city everyday while meeting creative minds from all over the world. Many of my guests don’t know much about photography, so it’s amazing to see express themselves in this new art form as they simultaneously fall in love with both Buenos Aires and photography.
