Visit and photograph both Sydney's best-known sites and least-known gems all in the same square mile with a professional photographer and guide. Begin your photographic trek at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Compose shots of this architectural wonder from almost every angle and viewpoint including more distant perspectives as the tour progresses.

Briefly visit the vibrant Botanical Gardens while traveling on to Circular Quay and its ferry terminals—always abuzz with locals and tourists. Take the elevator to the seldom-visited freeway overpass just above the quay to capture the bustle from this unique vantage point.

Glean a little creative inspiration as you pass the Museum of Contemporary Art and onto a preserved early-settler village on the fringe of the narrow streets and alleys making up the historic Rocks District—Sydney’s earliest settlement. Located in the shadow of the Harbour Bridge, the Rocks is often host to a range of entertainment including music performances, art exhibitions, and markets.

Take a step back from the crowds and into the labyrinthine back alleys, stairways, and hidden lanes offering a gallery of photographic opportunities including some of the oldest architecture in the country. Walk up the Harbour Bridge road ramp for some inspirational views before a trip to the elevated park at Observatory Hill with its astronomical telescope and panoramic city views. Descend the steep steps and winding streets through refurbished warehouses and the overseas liner terminal before arriving back at Circular Quay to complete your photography journey.

You can fly solo or with your own private group (prices are per person), by selecting "Private Tour" when booking, giving you complete one-on-one attention from your professional photograher and guide.
