Photo tour on request (modern architecture), July 2016

Very serious people. Not only they know what they are doing but also are flexible enough to accommodate their clients needs. I felt very comfortable with Anton. Very nice person. I wish I had a Photothema in every city I visit.



Custom made photo tour (street photography), Juni 2016

Photothema was prompt in their reply and more than delivered on their promises. Anton was an excellent instructor and exceptional tour guide. I look forward to my next lesson.

More then a photography lesson

Private Night Photography Tour, May 2016

Photothema was very responsive via email (within a day response) and easy to book with. Anton was great, providing some colourful history along our evening journey to capture some beautiful shots of the canals at night. I did not have much time in Amsterdam (only one night), but Anton took me to several great spots and assisted with getting the photos I was after. Highly recommended.

Night Photography Tour along the Amsterdam Canals, March 2016

Both with help using a new mirrorless Lumix AND for a wealth of cultural/historical details which gave us a real appreciation for Amsterdam’s uniqueness through the ages. Prompt and detailed responses to our inquiries were made before our arrival too.

Photo Safari Amsterdam Zoo, March 2016

I had a tour at the Artis zoo in Amsterdam. Anton was very helpful giving suggestions on how to take the pictures and changing the camera settings. He knows everything about the zoo and the interesting spots. I’ll certainly have another tour in Amsterdam with them.

Amsterdam Urban Landschape Photography Tour, July 2015

We had a really nice tour by the ij river. Anton and Laurien are very knowledgeable and able to answer pretty much any question you have about photography or your camera. They gave us a theme “reflections” which we could use for our photography but definitely didnt have to be restricted to. I enjoyed this relaxed trip which is done at your groups own speed.

Workshop Street Photography Amsterdam, July 2015

You give us some good advice and it was really interesting, we met nice people and enjoyed our workshop. Keep going !

“Excellent workshop!”

Amsterdam Urban Landschape Photo Tour, July 2015

We did a walking photography workshop with Photothema as a company outing and had a great time. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, with a keen interest in every participant. I especially liked how they adapted to any level of experience, from beginners like myself, to more advanced photographers. Having a number of spare camera’s on hand is also great service. Photothema is recommended!

“Great company outing”

Custom made workshop, March 2013

Anton and Laurien were not only the perfect hosts, giving me a warm welcome to Amsterdam, but Anton’s tuition and guidance throughout my purpose-designed day proved to be first class. He demonstrated a genuine interest in my training needs and went out of his way to ensure that they were met. I would highly recommend Photothema to anyone who wants to develop their photographic skills. My photowalk around Amsterdam was expertly led by Anton and, despite the cold (!), I managed to absorb some really good ideas in respect of composition and exposure. Laurien’s delicious home-made soup was most welcome when we got back to the apartment. I hope to return at some time to gain some more benefit from Anton’s knowledge. I stayed in their guest room which met my basic needs for accommodation during my course – I was getting used to the stairs by the end of my stay! It was also good to meet Ajax the dog who was big but friendly!
