Photographer Guide

The World’s Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Adventure Vacations


Travel, Street, Documentary and People Photographer


Combining his extensive travels with his photography background, Laurie has been offering photography tours for over 25 years. He enjoys nothing more than using his experience to aid photo enthusiasts in the technical and creative skills needed to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary one – all the while guiding his students to some of the planet’s most photogenic locations. Laurie’s travels are as geographically diverse as the countries he has lived in. Born in Jerusalem, raised in London and living for extended periods in Spain, India, Australia and Thailand, he has finally returned to his native home in Israel.

His first foray in photography started when he was just 13, when he documented his adventures across the Mediterranean on the family sail boat on a journey from the U.K to Israel. With a deep connection to the sea, and still a teenager, he set about his first freelance business in Southeast Asia where he guided underwater photographic tours to divers using the Nikonos underwater camera system, before running a business in India for 6 years. Since then, he has been a photo tour guide in some of the most exotic locations found anywhere on the globe.

Over the years, he has worked with a variety of photographic formats, before settling on the Fujifilm mirrorless system. Laurie considers himself a purist and still uses his film cameras on occasion. His photographic style and teaching method has his own signature, and his preferred genre lies in environmental portraits and artistic street photography.
