I was happy to have two separate tours (one daytime & one nighttime) on the same day with Martin S. He was extraordinarily accommodating, knowledgeable, personable, and when we hit a goodly bit of rain and fog, pivoted without issue. I am an advanced(?) amateur and he really helped me dust off the cobwebs of the basics and taught me so much that I'll be practicing and using going forward. When a guide is willing to stand with his hand over your lens for long periods of time to avoid you getting water on the lens, that's just above & beyond! I would highly recommend Martin S. and hope to take another tour with him the next time I'm in Edinburgh. I cannot recommend him enough!

I got this tour as a gift to my girlfriend who has been looking to get more into photography. Our guide Martin was incredibly friendly and taught us so much while keeping the tour personal and tailoring it to what we wanted to do. We both learned so much and now look at the city differently when looking for photos to take.

Martin was a pleasure to work with. He took me to some excellent vantage points and helped with my creative style which was appreciative. Although it was raining off and on we were able to get some exceptional pictures!

I can not say enough regarding the tour that I did with my instructor Martin. First this company was spot on with the description about the tour and what I would do. They provided me with all the necessary information and at the end of the tour provided a booklet regarding photography. Martin my instructor was outstanding. Before we began we sat down to discuss my expectations and what I wanted to learn. It was an amazing evening experiencing and capturing the night scenes of Edinburgh. The photos I shared are ones just from my iPhone as the true gems are on my memory cards in my camera. I have to wait till I get home for those. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are a photographer. I learned so much in such a short time. Thank you Martin for such an awesome experience!!!!!! I highly recommend

We highly recommend this tour!! Martin was wonderful, he was very knowledgeable, friendly and really wanted us to have a great tour. The weather was dreadful, cold and rainy, and Martin went out of his way to teach us different photography settings and how to use them effectively. Martin made sure we were happy with the experience and photos before we were done.

5 of 5! Martin was prompt, personable and professional. He initially sat with my wife and I and we discussed my expectations for the tour. He discussed a plan for the time we had and made sure it was what I expected. We spent the three hours together walking through Edinburgh. Martin gave great location tips for a potential image and then stepped back to let me shoot…exactly what I wanted. Highly recommend Aperture, I have used the in Paris on three occasions and now in Edinburgh.

We did this tour along with two other aperture tours on our trip through Europe. All of them were fantastic! We got a wonderful tour of Edinburgh with some great views and most importantly local experienced help for more captivating photos. Will definitely book more tours for future travels and would 1000% recommend to any others interested in travel photography.

David was fantastic. If I could him more stars I would. VERY knowledge about the culture and the town of Edinburgh. This was a night shoot but it doesn't get dark until 9:30-10 pm David even walked up back to our hotel. I feel like we met a friend and not a random photo guide. He even helped my wife with cell phone pictures. I just think David W. could have done anything any better than he did. I will definitely refer friend to David. He is that good. Thank you again David.

I had a wonderful tour of Edinburgh with Martin. He was a wonderful guide, and a great teacher. He made me feel comfortable and helped me to understand new ways to think about lighting and depth of field. He was kind, helpful and respectful. I could not recommend Martin more highly!
