John is a top knotch guy who exudes passion in what he does. He is an amazing photographer and teacher and even my husband who was just tagging along really enjoyed the day! John is very flexible, which makes for a great day and his wife (who I had the pleasure of meeting and is just as special) is a fantastic cook, which makes for a delicious lunch! :)
The nature reserve we visited had it all: Great hiking trails, Interesting landscapes, Great beach, and TONS of intersting compositions. I loved it! I was breaking in my Canon 5D Mark II and John was a great help *even though he's a Nikon user - Ekk! ;)*
He was very accommodating for the second half of the day when we'd had enough of nature and wanted to see some different landscapes. He took us to "Secret Beach" (shhhhhh!) where I captured some AMAZING sunset photos. It was truly a special place.
All in all, I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in photography and seeing areas around Montezuma and Mal Pais. John was very professional (and fun!) and always offering his input in such a way it was instructive, but not too critical.
Awesome, awesome, awesome.... :)
