When receiving a Solo Traveler request for holiday photography, my first question is what they have in mind and if it is the first time they visit the city. The answers vary from business profiles taken abroad to vacation photography. Then, another question arises: Do you want to combine it with a walking route or only a photo session?
I manage this second option as your local friend in the city who happens to be a professional photographer. We plan an itinerary together or follow a classic route, and we go for two hours or more if you want to add more time for it. This typically makes a 60-minute session expand into a 90-120 minutes experience with stories about Amsterdam's origin, Rembrandt's steps in the city, and visual things we usually miss. The longest I have done so far is 4 hours with 4 people, but this one was only 90 minutes long.
Showing the city I now call home is rewarding, and at the same time, you get memories through images from your vacation in Amsterdam.
Enjoy the pictures, and see you again soon.
Joanna, your Amsterdam photographer
