Two of us spent three hours with Natasha wandering the Quarter. It was so cool to learn about my camera and making good shots in such a personal manner. Natasha has a series of favorites that showcase many different techniques. For anyone interested in something better than "vacation" photos it was time and money well spent.

Excellent tour guided by Chris and Natasha. We began in Lafayette Cemetery with a short discussion of white balance using the tombs as examples. Very hands on, Chris and Natasha were attentive to the group's needs. Our group was comprised of all skill levels and everyone felt supported. We had 9 people in our group - there was some jockeying... More

Enjoyed the guides and the sites. The tour was just the right length for someone like me --serious back trouble-- so it wasn't too long or too short. Appreciated Natasha's eye, as I'm trying to learn to see the world differently for photo purposes. Was frustrated that fences and vegetation hid the first stories of many houses and that people...

I took the French Quarter Tour this past Sunday, March 30. It was wonderful & very informative. I learned so much about my camera and how to set up shots. We had a small group and everyone had a chance to ask questions. Chris was our guide & he was really great. I would recommend this tour to anyone that... More

Had a great, informative instructional on SLR photography - still using what I learned. Small group gave everyone the chance to ask questions and investigate points of interest. Would recommend to anyone interested in photography.

We had a great time on our photo tour of the Garden District. Our instructor was great! Our group had 6 people plus Nattie - she was able to help everyone learn how to use their camera better and explain about how to take shots. It was the most enjoyable outing we had on our trip!

We took this tour this afternoon. We had a great time. The group was small enough that we were able to get individual attention. Learned a lot about the city and photography. Highly recommend this tour!

I've been on this tour twice, with 2 different groups of friends and each time with a different guide. I was pleased both times. The first time there were others in the group so the tour was focused equally on the French Quarter and photography. The second time it was only our friends, so Chris really tailored the tour to...

The photo tour of the French Quarter was excellent and surpassed our expectations. In addition to being very knowledgeable about photography, Chris is a superb teacher and explained all concepts better than I have every experienced. (And I have taken photography classes in junior high, high school, and college, in addition to other "photo tours.") He was great at working... More
