Dominic James Blewett
Originally from the UK, I have spent most of my adult life outside of it. I lived first in China, then for many years in Vietnam, and since 2012 I've been based in Berlin. I shoot everything from food and lifestyle features for magazines, destination weddings, development projects, portraits, and news and event photography. My work has appeared in publications such as Vice, The Wire, The Lancet, and The Word. When not on assignment I love exploring this fascinating city, discovering its hidden secrets, and I look forward to taking you with me.

Night time photography inspiration ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The night time tour with Dominic was simply excellent. I have found night time photography to be very challenging and was looking for tips on how to reduce the amount of unwanted blur I seem to consistently achieve in my shots. Dominic was able to guide me on how to do this and much, much more. His photographic expertise is impressive as is his ability to share his knowledge of different photography techniques (panning, long exposures etc). I finished the night with some beautiful photos of Berlin and feeling inspired to keep practising my new skills.
Different way to see Berlin ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Dominic guided us on this tour and initially sat with us to discuss our level of photographic knowledge and our expectations of the tour. He the constructed the tour to provide us with opportunities to compose photos which were a little different and then reviewed our photos and provided suggestions on improvements. We had some fun panning and trying to capture the 'one instant' photo. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learnt so much from Dominic. I look forward to doing other Aperture Tours in other cities I visit.
Aperture Berlin - Walking Tours with Dominic ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was recently in Berlin and did 2 different walking tours with Dominic: afternoon walking tour and evening walking tour. The experience was very good. I was interested in getting shooting tips and Dominic provided exactly what I was looking for. I found the night time tour to be especially instructive. We worked on time lapse, panning, and capturing moving light. On the afternoon tour, we spent time working on compression, depth of field, and adding "life" to still images. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in photography and in improving their skills.
Photography tour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We took the 6 hour tour with Dominic. I really liked his approach to getting to know us and understanding what was our expectations from the tour. We felt very comfortable with him. I really recommend this tour for people interested in photography, even if you are at the beginner's level like me. Thank you Aperture tours for providing us with this opportunity and pairing us with Dominic; he was great.
