Although professional photographer Joyce Weir grew up in Buffalo, New York, lived and worked in San Francisco, and has traveled throughout Europe, it’s the culture and history of Charleston that have kept her—and her camera—captivated for the long haul. Today she leads walking tours through the streets of her beloved Southern home base, sharing her encyclopedic knowledge of the city's landmarks with walkers while also helping them take stunning photographs of the iconic neighborhoods and buildings. Tours generally cover a 1.5-mile course and pass attractions such as colonial churches, Civil War sites, and stately mansions. Armed with home-brought cameras, iPads, tablets, or iPhones, customers learn how to capture images with a photographer's eye for natural lighting and framing.
