What will we cover during the Leiden Photography Tour?
Leiden is a city with a rich cultural heritage, not only in science, but also in the arts. One of the world's most famous painters, Rembrandt, was born and educated in Leiden.
The city has been one of Europe's most prominent scientific centres for more than four centuries.
Many important scientific discoveries have been made here, giving rise to Leiden’s motto: ‘City of Discoveries’.
If you ever thought only Amsterdam offers picturesque canal views, think again. After Amsterdam, Leiden is the city with the greatest number of bridges and canals.
Most of the current buildings in the city centre date back to the 16th and 17th century. It’s actually the second largest 17th century town centre in the Netherlands, the largest being Amsterdam.
There is a lot to see and discover and I will help you to make great photos of the most beautiful and interesting sceneries.
In the mean time I have trained and counselled thousands of photography enthousiasts, giving me a vast knowledge of all camera brands and systems.During the Tour we will cover:
