Through the Lens of a Camera

Israel consists of a very broad range of geography, coast, desert, mountains, forests, in a very small area making it a great photo location for those interested in nature and landscape. And Israel has two unique places, the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth and the makhtesh, a geologically formed crater.

A modern country in an ancient homeland, made up of people who have come from all over the world has infused Israel with a rich visual culture for those interested in colorful markets and people. With thousands of years of history and conquest there is a lot of archaeology and styles of architecture to take photographs of.

Israel is the land bridge between Europe, Africa and Asia and 500 millions birds fly over twice a year for those interested in photographing birds.

My experience and expertise as a guide and photographer enable me to offer unique and personalized tours of Israel, to enable you to get the photographs you're looking and hoping for.


Depends on your interests. Here are some sample locations:
Wadi Qelt
Dead Sea
Ein Gedi
Ein Avdat
Hula Lake

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Tours begin in Jerusalem but often travel off the beaten path to shoot photographs. I will meet you at your hotel or a predefined central location. Arrangement can be made for pickup at other locations.

End location: End is in Jerusalem unless you make other arrangements.

Duration: 8 hours

Photography is about light and if we're aiming for sunrise and/or sunset or moonrise then the tour often runs 12 hours (to be negotiated).


This tour takes you out into the land of Israel, deserts, coast, mountains depending on your time and interests. If you are booking transportation at additional cost, I offer a 2012 Skoda Yeti or similar, with air-conditioning. The amount of walking/hiking is discussed with the client.
