ABOUT THE PRIVATE TOURS
Once you book, the tour is all yours!
With the private tours, the price shown is for the time with me.
If you are by yourself, or a group of 2, or up to 4 people, you will have the tour to yourselves.
The price is the same regardless of the number of people (up to 4).
I never mix groups of people that don't know each other. This way, you get the best possible tour and learning experience.

Olaf Reinen - Your Photography Tour Guide
Let me tell you a little about myself, and why I am super happy to share Amsterdam with you, and help you get great photographs of this amazing city!
I love photography. There's no denying it. I have been a professional photographer for over 25 years, and run photography tours for the last 10 years. This is my real passion - helping you get better at taking photographs. Photos you love and are proud of. If I can help you be better at taking photos by the end of our time together, then I am happy. And I love Amsterdam and showing you all the best places to take photos.
Many of my clients have told me I am a gifted teacher, able to make photography easy to understand for everyone. I take this as a real compliment, and confirmation that I am really doing what I was born to do.
But that's not all. I also love to travel and explore new countries. 45 countries so far. Just for fun I also trained in off-road driving, and am a qualified Professional driver. I also trained to be a bodyguard, which turned out to help me in my photography (you will have to come on a photo tour to find out how!).
I was born right here in Holland, but grew up in New Zealand, so my first language is English. While New Zealand was a great place to grow up, I wanted to explore the world. So, in search of adventure and a warmer climate, I ended up in Malta, then Santorini, Greece for 10 years. But in my heart, Holland was calling, so I returned 'home'.
To help more people, I have written an ebook about my approach to photography - distilling my years of experience into a practical method to improve our photography skills. I have spent a lot of time thinking about human behavior and it's effect on how we photograph, which is the basis of the book. There's also a video training series now available too.
So join me on a Photo Tour in Amsterdam. You'll learn how to take better pictures, get to see some more of this beautiful world, and maybe have some fun along the way. After all, that's what life should be about!
