Edinburgh is a city that is a very photo rich environment. Fun city with a lot to do and see.

Photography Tips

The best tip for shooting Edinburgh is to research the city and its history prior to getting there. There is so much to shoot, that choices will need to be made unless you have weeks to spend there. Best time of year is hard to call. Summer is packed with tourists. Off seasons can be less than good weather. Overall, with the right equipment, anytime of the off season year can work. Tourist season you must expect lots of people.
