I am Photographer


Hey there! I'm Michael, your local host in Edinburgh. You'll often find me strolling along the river and hillside paths, perhaps winding up in one of the city's many galleries or enjoying a meal in the Botanical Gardens. As a photographer, I roam all corners of Edinburgh, capturing its essence from every angle – whether it's the historic Old Town, the chic New Town, or the charming suburbs. When it comes to the arts scene, I've got you covered. From galleries to live music venues, I know the ins and outs of Edinburgh's cultural landscape. And let's not forget about the culinary delights – I know just the spots to sample cuisine from around the world or indulge in the best of Scottish seafood. Whether you're looking for the perfect photo op or a captivating story about Edinburgh's diverse history, I'm your guy. Let's explore this incredible city together!
