Customized photo tours of San Diego

Photograph beautiful San Diego County from the best points of view in a private guided tour with your photo instructor & experienced photo tour guide Elle Gamboa. Enjoy choice vistas of our iconic Ocean Beach Pier, check out the amazing ocean vistas at La Jolla Cove, hike the Cuyamaca Peak Loops Trail, enjoy the many scenic wonders of Balboa park , walk across the Spruce St. foot bridee and explore San Diego’s finest beaches — all in one day!

Since I first arriving in San Diego in the late 80s, I’ve spent virtually all my time exploring the beautiful surrounding terrain from North County to Chula Vista with an emphasis on the La Jolla beach area where I currently reside.

These sessions are designed for out of town visitors, foreign tourists or photographers who are less interested in instruction, and more in finding certain hard to reach locations that lie off the beaten path. I will customize a route based on your interests, and daily/seasonal conditions.


These photo excursions last six hours, and cost $600. Extended sessions (+$100/hr) and multi-day tours can be arranged on an individual basis.

  • $100 fee for each additional attendee.

Required gear:

None! You don’t have to be a photographer to take the tour, but you’ll probably get more out of it if you bring your camera. I highly recommend you bring a tripod if you want to shoot night photography
