Smartphone Citywalks

Choose from these three stunning walks that guarantee superb photos!

Zuidas Walk

Are you in New York or London? It’s the Amsterdam Zuidas! Of course, architecture plays a major role in this fascinating area. Some of the most eye-catching buildings in the Netherlands can be found on the Zuidas.
But the Zuidas is much more than just a business district. Thousands of people live and work here who you will take along in your story about this energetic district. This inspiring walk uses the longest exhibition in the world as your guideline: Streets of the World – Zuidas.
Based on the beautiful street photos by Jeroen Swolfs, which are displayed there in a 300-meter long exhibition, the loges in the world, you will receive your assignments and you will learn to view and photograph the Zuidas in a completely new way!

Red Light Walk

The famous and infamous Red Light District of Amsterdam! The beating heart of tourism in this old world city. Amsterdam once started here and you can still see that in the beautiful architecture and the houses that sometimes go back to the 11th century! The people of Amsterdam and the reportage style are central on this route. In the narrow alleys of the Red Light District you will encounter typical Amsterdam scenes and on the canals boats sail and swans swim. A 10-minute walk from Felix Meritis you can see Amsterdam in all its glory.

Canal Walk

Walk out of the door at one of our locations and immediately find yourself on the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. From Dam Square you walk via Herengracht, Leidsegracht and Prinsengracht towards the serene Amstel river. The fantastic buildings and magical canals with their houseboats guarantee special photos. The entire route is packed with curious little shops and Amsterdammers who are busy with their daily chores in ‘the 9 Streets’. Aesthetic photography at its best!

I really like the class and the energy you bring into it. I really appreciate this activity with the team and participate gladly

I really enjoyed participating, being triggered to think carefully about your choices. I'm sure my vacation albums are going to be a bit nicer after PhotoClass!

The best thing about the assignment was asking permission. In conversation with each other. People are happy and open. So personal connection. Equipment used: Huawei mobile phone.
