Let us take you on a walking tour of Gion while we take your pictures! This experience takes you through the back alleys and lesser-visited temples of Gion and Higashiyama. All throughout you'll get your pictures taken by a husband and wife team with over twenty years experience each in photography. Amp up the experience by putting on a kimono! We love shooting kimono portraits as you can see from our samples, they make anyone look elegant. We don't provide the kimono ourselves, but we can help you select a shop based on your desired itinerary. We can customize the time of this experience to best suit your schedule. If your party is more than 2 persons, just message me so I can open up more slots. You will receive at least 20 edited, high-resolution photos, by download from our website (URL in our About Your Host section). Please note that this is the shorter version of our full Kyoto Walk with Personal Photographer. It's only 2 hours long, and the only available location is Gion. If you would like a longer experience and customize the locations please book https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/324488
Hi! I'm Dariel, my wife Cathy and I are both freelance photographers and writers who've fallen head over heels for Kyoto. There's nothing we enjoy more than walking around this lovely old city's back streets in the early mornings or late afternoons, camera in hand, and it's even more fun when we do it with friends. You can see our photos at https://www.dcqphotography.com/ and https://www.dcqphotography.com/Portraits/Travel-Portraits. We've both been photographers for over 20 years.
The walk is all around Gion, Kyoto's old geisha district. We'll explore the back alleys and less-visited temples, as we just love this place in the early morning or afternoon. The preserved old streets with their ancient architecture are so atmospheric, and the light here is like the whole place was set up by a Renaissance painting master!
