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

I love to take pictures on our "sister trips" and always shoot them on the auto setting, just because I am not knowledgeable of the many other shooting modes. Natasha, our "teacher", was just what I needed to help me break away from my "automatic" mode. The workshop along with the French Quarter route she took us on to do... More

Walking through the Quarter gave up lots of opportunities to shoot different things. I would highly recommend if you ❤️❤️❤️Taking pictures. We had a... More

LOVED our Garden District Tour. Our guide, Natasha was so knowledgeable and informative. She was so patient with our questions and pointed out colors and angles to take our photos. What a pleasant lady to work with. She showed us features on our cameras that we never knew we had!!! Natasha is truly an asset to your company and we... More

The tour guide I had was very knowledgeable about photography and the history of the area. I got to see some things I had never seen before. I would recommend this trip to all my friends.

This was well worth my time as I learned how to take better photos, especially indoors. It doesn't matter what your level of expertise is, I feel that you would have some type of take away from it. The only downside is that I thought we would be touring more of the French Quarter. We spent most of our time... More

Great photography class and interesting tour. Saw things I've never noticed. Chris is very patient and knowledgeable. It was my girlfriends first time using her camera and she learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it.

As a hotel concierge and native New Orleanian, I've taken almost every walking tour out there but this specific tour showed me things on streets I travel daily that I never noticed. Natasha was great! Not only did she teach me how to use my camera in about 10 minutes she taught us about architecture and history. You will also... More
