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

Our guide Natasha was a wealth of information on how to set up my camera for individual shots under differing lighting conditions. When I downloaded my photos later, I found that I needed much less time in Photoshop than I usual. Also, she pointed out interesting angles and locations that I never would have found on my own. She also... More

It was my good fortunate to be the only person in this workshop. My guide, Chris was very patient and kind. He answered all of my questions regarding the settings on my camera and about different techniques for picture composition. He had special areas mapped out to demonstrate the techniques he was teaching and pointed out several photo opportunities along... More

I made a reservation with Chris for the tour because I wanted to learn how to take better pictures. What I got was so much more. Not only answered Chris all my questions why the photos I took till then were sometimes a real disappointment but he also helped me to set-up my camera, explained the technical backgrounds of photoshooting,...

This was a good way to get to know the French Quarter and learn more about taking travel photos with my camera. My guide and master photographer Chris had locations mapped out around the French Quarter to match the concepts he was teaching. By the end of the tour, I had so many new ideas for taking photos. I was... More

My wife and I took this tour, her with a digital point and shoot, and me with a DSLR. Our group was large, with 10 people. There were multiple camera types, but our guide, Natasha, was able to explain where to change camera settings for each brand. We spent the first 30-45 minutes in Jackson Square while we learned about... More
