“Educational photo tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Learned a lot about my camera and what to shoot. Brawlio really knows his stuff. He showed me lots of things you wouldn't get in other tours. Lots of great shots to show.

Thanks a bunch, you guys rock!

“San Fran trip photography class:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was my first trip to San Francisco and this was a great way to see the city! Brawlio was my teacher and he was wonderful, he taught me about my camera and gave me examples of how to get different looks from my camera. We walked through many areas of San Fran and I learned a lot of information, more than I did than when my husband and I did on a tour bus! Brawlio would show different ways to hold the camera and different angles/lines so the picture had a more professional look, I was so in awe! I can't say how happy I am that I took this tour, it exceeded my expectations.

“A great tour with great instruction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I took a tour in July with Patrick Power, and he gave me an excellent introduction to much of San Francisco's history, along with some solid photographic instruction. While I normally use a point and shoot (or just my phone!), Patrick helped me take some very good-looking pictures with an SLR, and explained both the technical ideas (exposure, depth of field, etc), but many compositional concepts (the rule of thirds, using diagonals, using the foreground and background, reflections, and more).

It was an excellent and educational afternoon, and felt neither rushed nor boring - Patrick did a great job of moving along at a pace I was happy with while still fitting in all of the photographic and historical education, and hitting all of the spots. Highly recommended!

“beautiful san francisco and beautiful brawlio~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

i am rina and i always love taking pictures of the veggies and flowers in my garden back in the day but with this class brawlio took me to another level. i have learned so much. funny, i always wonder how moving objects can be captured on a photo and look fast but yet still there and he showed me the trick. now, my next move is to get my own camera. beside learning, brawlio made it fun. if i was to take another class, he is the guy i am sticking with...brawlio you rock!!
thanks!
