Here at Charleston Photography Tours, we want to provide the client with the 'not-so-common' approach to photographing Charleston and its beautiful surroundings. Not only can we get you to these magical places on the ground, but now we also offer the view by air! That's right! Charleston Photography Tours is now your ONLY Lowcountry photography tour and workshop company offering both by land and air. We have teamed up with our friends at Holy City Helicopter to provide you some very unique vantage points and offer you the very best in photographic experiences from the air.

Upon arrival, you’ll meet with your pilot and our professional photographers, Keith and Tiffany. They will discuss useful tips and important items to note while shooting from the air. Shooting from a moving helicopter, through the sky, is much different than setting up on a tripod on the ground below. But, with a pre flight instructional, you'll have the necessary knowledge to get that amazing, one-of-a-kind shot.

This is a doors off experience, which means there’s no glass between you and the low country. Our doors off experience will allow you to capture a crisp and clean photograph. Finally, while in flight, our professional photographers work very hard to monitor the light, and work simultaneously with the pilot and their expert knowledge to place you in the best locations for the very best shots.

We pride ourselves in knowing you’ve never experienced photographic opportunities of Charleston like you will on these tours!
