As our photography excursion will be aimed at getting great evening / nighttime shots, we will be meeting at nine pm at the "Alte Oper", the old opera house. This location is a hard to miss tourist attraction and poses a very picturesque scene. The exact meeting spot will be next to the fountain in front of the "Alte Oper". After a short introduction round to get acquainted and to see what kind of photography equipment everybody has we can begin setting up the gear and and start with a few shots of the "Alte Oper" before we move on as a group to several more locations, including the Hauptwache, the famous Town Hall "Römer", the old town and of course the old Iron Bridge which offers a breathtaking view of the Main River as well as the unique Frankfurt Skyline. At each stop, I will explain a short background of the history at that location and then assist all participants in capturing the moment as a digital image with the camera gear that they brought. I will help with tips and tricks on how to get the best angle and settings. The duration of the tour will be app. 2.5 hours. Participants can choose to end the tour at the Willy Brandt Platz or at the "Alte Oper".
For as long as I can remember, I have always been a true photography enthusiast with a very good eye for framing great pictures. At first with the "old" film cameras, and now of course in the digital photography realm. When I'm traveling around Europe, I love to go out and explore the cities at night - somehow many places and sights just seem so much nicer in darkness when city lights are on. Often, I wished that there would have been a foto-tour available then to show me the best locations and give me good tips on how to capture that perfect shot with my gear. Out of my own past experiences, I'm creating this great experience in my city to be able to share my knowledge of the city as well as my passion for nighttime photography with you from all around the world.

This nighttime photo tour will of course include the main tourist attractions: Alte Oper, Hauptwache, Town Hall Römer and the Iron Bridge. Along the way between these individual locations, there are several more places to see that also offer great photo opportunities and are not so touristically recognized. Depending on the group the total distance will not exceed 5km. After the tour, we can talk and share experiences over a beer at a nice pub.
