I met Melanie and Martin through Flytographer and this was my last session made in Lima for them. One of my advices for photographers doing pictures for foreigners is "Know your city". If they go to a historical place, learn the facts and guide them through the history of the place. If it's a touristic area but not historical, learn why it is important. A couple of interesting facts will make appreciate a lot more the spaces we are walking around and turn regular walls into amazing places to remember.
If you are a tourist and going to travel soon, don't forget that the best day for doing your photo session is at the beginning of your stay. You will receive a nice walking around the best areas, but also a lot of local advice to take advantage of the time you have. And of course, if you travel consider doing a Photoshoot with Flytographer. Let us Capture the Magic of Travel and with an amazing discount of USD 25 for reading this. Just use JOANNAP code at the Checkout.
This is what Melanie thought of their session.
"For our first time getting photographed together, Joanna made us feel more at ease. She was great at providing direction and feedback in order to get the perfect shot. She was also patient and personable. Along with the photography session, we basically received a walking tour of Lima. She was knowledgeable of the area and offered good recommendations of what to see and do during our short time there. I would recommend Joanna as a Flytographer during anyone's travels."
Thanks for the love Melanie!
And if you are visiting Lima I cannot recommend more VIPFLATMIRAFLORES, the best Airbnb in Lima, with a lot of options in Miraflores. Let them know you are coming from here and you will have a personal discount. They are running my apartment in Lima too now that I moved to Amsterdam and I know them personally for years.
Next week more tips & photos.
See you soon from the fairytale city of Amsterdam,
Joanna, your Amsterdam photographer
