What you'll do

I will show you some of the most beautiful and interesting spots of Lyon, give you some tips on good restaurant address. And most importantly: PHOTO, no matter whether a newbie or amateur, I can show you some basic techniques of photography(different modes, framing etc). You are welcome to share your travel or photography experience with me. We learn new things every day. A typical itinerary would include the old town: Vieux Lyon, and on the hill of Fourvière to enjoy its amazing panoramic views from a lesser-known spot(which is not necessarily featured on tour guide)....Itinerary can also be personalised .

FAQ: Can you take some photos of my guests? Of course, I will be happy to! I will mainly use your equipment: your cameras / your phones so that you can have the photos right away!

Also, we will be walking quite a lot, so make sure you wear a pair of comfortable shoes.
For night photowalk, don't forget to bring your tripod if you have one as well.

Professional photographer based in Lyon for many years, I specialise at food, event, portraits photography. Originally from Hong Kong, I fell in love with the capital of French gastronomy for its food (one of the reasons that I specialise at food photography:), its beautiful architecture and more. I love walking around the city with my camera to explore for my pastime. I would love to share this experience and show you some beautiful spots of Lyon as well.
The tour can be conducted in English, French, Cantonese and Mandarin.

Where you'll be

We will be meeting at Hôtel de Ville(city hall) and then we will start our little walking tour towards old town (Vieux Lyon) by crossing the river Saône, then we will take the funicular up to the hill and I will show you a nice and little known spot other than the place of Fourvière to enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view.

Keith was an amazing host! Booked this for the photography aspect and it was very helpful to newbies like us. He even treated us to a hot drink during the walking tour as it was extremely cold. Highly recommend his walk tour!

I recommend this experience for those wanting to learn more about Lyon and improve their photography skills (even if you have zero background in the latter). Keith showed us around some beautiful spots in Lyon while giving us some useful background information. He also gave us a lot of recommendations for us to check out after the tour. The photo part was particularly better than expected. I’m not a photographer whatsoever and just showed up with my iPhone (& absolute lack of skills). I was feeling somewhat self conscious before the tour, but Keith put us at ease immediately. It felt like a safe space where he shared very useful & practical tips without being judgmental whatsoever. He also gave us ample opportunity to practice as well to help us improve. My photos after my session with Keith have been turning out much better. All in all this was a great way to spend my first morning in Lyon. Thank you Keith!

It was a great walking tour with Keith. Keith was very friendly and we were chatting like old friends throughout the trip. He was very thoughtful too and brought bottled water for all of us. We had done a food tour the day before and Keith was very flexible and planned our walking tour so that we see different things. We learned a lot from him on photography throughout the tour. We were using the camera on our phone and the pictures turned out so much better after his guidance. I would highly recommend to do a tour with Keith as he recommended food places, talked about the history of the places we visited in addition to photography.

Keith's tour was excellent. He was knowledgeable about Lyon and suggested a few good places to us. He also personalised his photography to the phone we used, and was very helpful in teaching us how to take better photos.

This tour was incredible on several levels. Keith spent a lot of time helping me with composition, a weak point in my photography. Along the way, he took me to some unique locations while imparting a little history of each. He's also a fascinating and guy — I feel like I have a new friend in Lyon!
