Hello and Shalom
You are mostly welcome to join me on a private tour in the quarters of the old city of Jerusalem.
my tour combines visits to historical sites with a workshop in photography. Together we will walk down the memory lanes and explore hidden corners, create good compositions with the ambient light.
If you want to learn and see Jerusalem in depth. Take an expert guide and together we will tailor your visit according to your desires. These tours are for all levels, so whether you are a pro or an amateur (an iPhone is good too) ,you will surly meet lots of interesting people and experience Jerusalem like a local . you can also plan with me a multiple tour which includes other parts of Jerusalem, west bank, desert landscapes, urban Tel Aviv and much more.
My name is Simon Beni. born in 1968. Live in Shoham - which is close to the airport.
I Studied History and Archaeology in Tel Aviv university, I am a second generation tour guide. I love history.... and for the past 20 years I have been leading groups mostly to Asia, and guiding many visitors all over Israel. As a tour guide I get to know and discover lots of new places and faces.
I am a self taught photographer, and I have been working as a photography teacher in a high school for 5 years. Teaching old school photography: BW film and dark room processing. As a photographer I seek to visualize a scene before it happens, often waiting to capture a moment that will hopefully then become a great photo.
So you can say I wear 2 hats… my 2 hobbies history and photography fuse together into a tour which I combine: Jerusalem photo tour. For the past 5 years I designed a program in which my guests get to know Jerusalem from a different point of view, taking pictures and meeting interesting people. I am excited to welcome you to Jerusalem...as a client, as an honored guest, and most of all, as a friend.
As for December 2021 my pictures are displayed in the Israeli pavilion as part of the international world Expo in Dubai. the name of the exhibition "light and Jerusalem" displaying the beauty of the city and its visitors.
What you will / can learn:
locations to photograph iconic landmarks
locations for photographing events and people
Photography basics (if needed, for beginners)
Street photography tips, tricks, and composition
Camera settings and advanced techniques
Capturing gesture, expression, and emotion and telling stories with your images
