Improve your photography and discover the real Berlin with our hands-on tours guided by an expert photographer local to the city.

What makes our photography workshops especial?

You'll have the dedicated attention of a professional photographer along the tour. You will receive continuous advice to improve every picture you take during the day, wether related to composition, exposure, lighting… 

We love Berlin and we know the city like the back of our hands. We know its photographic possibilities very well and we are willing to share them.

We start each session at a local café or bar to go together through some theory, a theory that we apply right away. Order costs not included.

You don't need to stick to predefined photographical contents or routes. We can design a tailor-made photo course based on your needs and wishes. 

Our private classes aren’t only aimed at individuals. They are also ideal for couples, families or small groups of friends. And prices stay the same.

Would highly recommend Guillermo to both amateurs and more advanced photographers. Excellent way to understand the theory behind using your camera and then putting it to the test.
The afternoon we spent with Guillermo was a true turning point! Putting the theory into practice on the streets of Berlin, shot by shot, was really magical.

Your hosts

Depending on our availability, your host will be either Tomás or Guillermo, both experienced photographers and instructors.

Tomás, Pentaprisma Photo Workshops’ host in Berlin


I was born and raised in Gran Canaria, in Spain, where I did my photography studies. In the mid-nineties I moved to Berlin to continue studying and get a wider view on photography. I felt in love with Berlin right away. 

With more than 25 years experience as a photographer, my work has received awards in various prestigious contests and has been exhibited at different museums and galleries. 

At the moment I split my time between Berlin and Gran Canaria working on my personal photo series and helping others improve their photography skills through my photo courses.

Guillermo, Pentaprisma Photo Workshops’ host in Berlin


When I was 16 years old, I inherited a camera from my grandfather. Since then, photography has been my passion. Born in Mexico City, I grew up photographing the surrounding landscape. 

Supported by a Fulbright scholarship, I got an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011, which gave me a broader understanding of the medium. I dedicate my time both to my artistic projects and to teaching photography . 

My aim as a teacher is to show how fast and easy you can get better images by trusting your instincts and magnify your own point of view.


Why Berlin for an outdoors photography course?

Berlin, capital of Germany, is without doubts one of the most exciting cities in Europe. It reinvents itself everyday. Trendy fashion shops, exclusive restaurants or fine art galleries go hand by hand with street musicians, graffiti covered walls and underground night clubs. 

Just as its current energy is captivating, so was its past. The 20th-century history of Berlin is directly connected to the history of Germany and Europe, if not to the history of the world. Hidden remains of that history are awaiting to be discovered all over the city. 

We will help you to capture the essence of Berlin in pictures. Our classes are aimed at beginner, intermediate and advanced photographers. Try one of our photography courses and unveil the photographer in you.

Our prices

Prices are per class, not per person, so if you wanted to bring someone along, it would have no extra cost.

Obviously the more sessions you take, the more you'll learn. If you happen to be new to photography, with three sessions you'll get a really good base on both composition and the technical aspects to go on shooting on your own.
