Have attended about 6-8 photography workshops in the last two years, I learned more on composition in the American Photo Safari's three hour New Orleans French Quarter Tour then in the other workshops combined. I had a lot of fun seeing the French Quarter as an eye of a photographer. The textures, colors, and American-French style provides an unique photography... More

What an amazing morning. Like some other lucky people here I had some cancellations from my group so it ended up being a private tour. Natasha was so helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and still so passionate about photography despite surely doing a similar tour with many people, many times. She was patient with my inexperience but also didn't waste our time... More

This was an awesome experience. Chris was fantastic in every way possible. He took the time to teach us about the settings, what different things on our cameras meant and walked us through the French Quarter so we could we could try thing out in real time. He was patient, polite, knowledgeable about cameras and the French Quarter! After the... More

I was lucky enough to be on a French Quarter tour by myself with Natasha. Within minutes, I learned some valuable lessons about my camera. We discussed composition, lighting and white balance among other things. They are providing an excellent service. I hope to go on the Garden District tour in the near future. I love the pics I took... More

The tour was a great way to see the French Quarter through the camera lens rather than a beer can. We had a small group and the guide/instructor, Natasha, took her time to explain the basics of each person's camera and basic photo composition.

Natasha took us on a photo walk around the French Quarter of New Orleans. Firstly she established how much we already knew. She gave us an excellent photo information card and loads of tips on our cameras. She found interesting topics to shoot and told us what settings to use for different effects. I would recommend this tour to anyone... More

A fabulous morning If you have three hours, and would like both a wonderful experience and memorable photos from your trip, you cannot make a better investment in time and money than APS’s French Quarter workshop. My wife and I were making our first visit to New Orleans. My wife signed up for the workshop as birthday present for me.... More

I recently did two morning tours with Natasha in the Garden District and Chris in the French Quarter. Both days were highly enjoyable and productive. I am a skilled photographer in little need of instruction, but was unfamiliar with New Orleans locations for shooting and safety which is why I reserved the tours. I am very impressed by how adaptive... More
