Last week I went on a photo walk around the French Quarter of New Orleans. This is a great way of spending a few hours discovering the not-so-touristy side of area. Natasha, our guide, was knowledgeable and I even learned about spot metering which I don't normally use (as I usually do sports / action). It was nice to slow... More

Thank you, Chris, for a great tour. I had already had a couple of guided tours of the French Quarter and mostly wanted the photographic input in such a great photogenic setting. Chris was highly attentive to what I wanted to get out of the experience and I came out of it learning far more practical tips than I ever... More

I bought this tour as a gift to my wife, who always wanted to learn how to use her camera, but never found time to do so. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and was able to make learning a great experience. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see new Orleans from a different perspective, while... More

My wife bought me the Safari to help me develop a photographer's "eye" and Natasha was the perfect instructor. She also gave me a much better understanding of how to more effectively use my camera. All-in-all it was a very enjoyable three hours.

We took a photography walking tour of the French Quarter with American Photo Safari. Our guide was Natasha, and she was very knowledgeable and patient with answering questions and helping adjust participants' camera settings. This was a good tour, and we definitely saw a couple things in the French Quarter we might have missed otherwise. However, I thought it was... More

Chris was an outstanding host! He was extremely knowledgeable about cameras, no matter what kind/brand! There were 6 in my group: 3 of us had low end DSLRs, 2 had small point and shoot, and 1 only used cell phone. Chris showed all of us individually how to use different features of all varieties of our cameras! His knowledge of... More

Natasha motivated me to use my SLR camera again after I allowed it to collect dust for a couple of years. She refreshed my memory on how to adjust settings and line up shots in a variety of lighting and spacial situations, using the French Quarter as a real-life classroom. As a lifelong NOLA-area resident, she was able to point... More

I had heard that this was a great tour for photographers of all levels, but that is simply not true. I grew quite bored waiting around as we discussed simple photography basics and spent lots of time stopped at locations that have been photographed 1000 times by every tour before. If you are professional or even intermediate, I would recommend... More
