Photographer Tour + Masterclass

Join us at the top of the Bridge and South-East Pylon for a world-first Photographer Tour and Masterclass.

Are you a passionate photographer looking for an unbeatable shoot location? 

In partnership with Fuji X and professional landscape photographer, Glenn Mckimmin, we’ve launched BridgeClimb’s world first Photographer Tour + Masterclass – an exclusive experience that allows amateur photographers to up-skill their photography knowledge, then put it to the test in a photo shoot from a vantage point like no other. 

Put Sydney in focus with this one of a kind experience that will take you and your camera to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the South-East Pylon Observation and Gun Decks – locations public cameras are not usually allowed - for uninterrupted views of a magical Sydney sunset or sunrise. 

The Photographer Tour + Masterclass is available in a full or half day package that run on the first Friday & Saturday of each month. With limited spots available you won’t want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture the most iconic shots of Sydney!
