This is a fantastic idea for a tour. Chris was a thorough and patient instructor. No question was too simple or too complicated. I loved seeing the French Quarter, learning a little history and being guided to sights that one may not notice when hustling around town. The instruction/education provided was painless in this setting. I left feeling like it... More

I took the American Photo Safari Tour of the French Quarter with Natasha. She was very patient and an excellent teacher. We started out in from of St. Louis Cathedral at Jackson Square. Natasha gave each one of us an info card and flow chart that diagramed the various components that contribute to a good photograph. She then spent time... More

Very satisfied with this fun adventure. I learned so much about my camera that I have always hesitated to dive into before. Chris is a great instructor. A little history is also thrown in, making it interesting and informative for locals and tourists alike. Don't hesitate to book this tour - you will enjoy it!

This was my second time to take an American Photo Safari tour with Natasha and I highly recommend the tour for anyone looking to capture the beautiful scenery of Nola, no matter your skill level or camera. She gives personalized attention to each tour guest without making others feel left out. I like that she was able to point out... More

It was a little daunting trying to tackle such a stunning city as New Orleans being just a beginner photographer, really wanting to make the most of my time there I was thrilled to find a photography tour I could take while in town. I was the only one on the tour which was great as I was a little... More

I attended a Friday morning class and Natasha was the instructor and she was great. There were only two of us in this workshop so we both got a lot of personal instruction and review. She started the workshop with some basic photography concepts as we stood outside the cathedral where we met. Even though my camera was not an... More

I unknowingly booked a weekend in New Orleans over Southern Decadence! French Quarter was a little crazy. So glad I did the Sunday morning class in the French Quarter. A chance to see the New Orleans I love and get some amazing photos and a bit of history. Thanks Natasha, I really enjoyed it. I'm a new fan of puddle... More

Grab your camera (any kind) with a mini-macro lens, good walking shoes, a bottle of water, and join professional photographer, Natasha, for a learning journey into the French Quarter. Natasha was both friendly and professional to our small group of 5 people. With her lead, we soon were laughing, joking, and working together like old friends. From novices to experts,... More

Being from Louisiana I've been to the French Quarter before and photographed it's beauty, but Natasha offered a different perspective that led to some of the best pictures I've taken! She was extremely knowledgable on the camera I was using (Canon Rebel) and patient with each of the individuals in the group. She offered different ideas for photography and how... More

Natasha was the leader of the workshop on 6/22/14. It was a tiny group - only two 'students', but Natasha didn't act like we were a waste of her time like others might have. She was incredibly personable from the start and it quickly felt like I'd known her for much longer than the two hours we were together. She... More
