The Nikolaiviertel is Berlin’s oldest quarter. Its architectural delights and cobbled corners make it the perfect place for a photography masterclass. We’ll be focussing on the skills that will take your travel photos and selfies to the next level! First off, we’ll get to know one another over a coffee in this historic and beautiful part of Berlin. I’ll teach you about your camera settings and you’ll learn how to create social-media ready images. Then we’ll go out and explore, taking photos as we go. I’ll give you expert tips and feedback on your shots, as well as telling you some of the fascinating stories of the Nikolaiviertel. By the end of our time together, you’ll not only have developed your skills as a photographer, you’ll also have learnt loads about Berlin history.
