I'm new-ish to my camera and photography in general, and this class is just what I needed. Not only did I get a great view of the French Quarter, but I also learned a lot about my camera and its capabilities. It was the best of both worlds!

I went on both the French Quarter and Garden District tours and found them great. It is off season in NOLA so there was only two of us for the French Quarter Tour which meant we both got a lot of attention. The Plantation Tour I was scheduled for did not reach the minimum participants so they set up a... More

I took this tour on July 10 and was not disappointed. Natasha is a friendly & knowledgeable individual & we had a great time. I was the only one scheduled for the French Quarter tour that morning so I got some quality instruction as well as some great shots. Natasha took the time to layout the shots, include some history...

Good tour of some photogenic French Quarter locations with good photography hints and instructions. Well suited for beginner to intermediate photographers. Good tidbits of culture and history, too!

Natasha did a great job explaining things to our small group! She really took the time to layout the shots/angels to us and light in to make our photos better! My husband even got into the group just using his iPhone and loved it! Do this early on in your trip to NOLA...If you do the Garden district tour hit... More

That was one of the bet photo tours I have ever taken. From the very beginning to the end, Chris was full of ideas and worthwhile tips. His tips and ideas made the trip more than worthwhile. In my opinion, Chris is one of the best photographers that I have ver found to work with and New Orleans is very,... More

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
