PhotoWalks founder Saba Alhadi, a professional local photographer and tour guide, will provide instruction and artistic photography tips and techniques so you can practice these techniques to get that great shot in Beacon Hill. Oh, and there’s lots of fascinating historical commentary along the way too.

Discover why this Beacon Hill walking tour is one of the best in Boston!

  • Develop a photographer’s eye using your camera or smartphone
  • See creatively from interesting angles
  • Use your newfound composition and technical skills for future pictures
