Hans and Zakia spent the afternoon with me showing me the beauty of Stone Town. I learned a lot about Photography in such a short time, I only wish I lived closer! They both offered great tips, and I loved the interaction with the locals, and of course the kids (they are so cute).

The afternoon provided a great view of Stone Town, a nice learning experience, and I definitely have some fantastic photos.

Highly recommend spending some time with Hans and Zakia, it will be the highlight of your time in Zanzibar.

I joined Zakia and Hans for a 3 hour photo walk through Stone Town, and was able to get some great images for my portfolio. Their understanding of the people of Zanzibar let me have access to motifs that without their help would not be accesible to me. As we walked we spoke about the art of photography and the photographer's mindset. It was a truly inspiring and amazing afternoon, that I would recommend to any photographers out there no matter which level of expertise.

THANK YOU to Sakia and Hans of The Beautiful Eyes! The photo walk with them in Stone Town was one of the highlights of our month long holiday in East Africa. If you enjoy photography, then talk a walk with The Beautiful Eyes, make some of the best pictures of your life, and perhaps like me, rekindle your passion for photography.

I am not a great photographer, but I wanted to learn. Hans and his wife (who is from Stonetown) took me on wonderful guided walk through the streets of Stonetown teaching me equally about life in Zanzibar and the art of street photography. They clearly know Stonetown and its people well I took me some places I wouldn't otherwise have gone. As for the photographs, well I have much to learn but I finished with a determination to take photography more seriously.
