    Amazing experience in Cartagena with Photography tours. Paolaand her team are very professional, friendly and passionate about her work and that feeling is very contagious. I made the workshop with my cellphone beacuse I dont have a DSLR and I loved it. I learned a lot about how to get the most out of my phone's camera and now I can take amazing takes anywhere.

    Very informative and enjoyable tour for people interested in photography
    This tour with Paola was one of the highlights of our 35 day vacation in Colombia. The first 3 hours were spent in Bazurto Market. This is not a destination to go on your own without a guide. If you want to learn about documentary photography this tour is for you. Paola is a regular visitor to this market and she knows some of the vendors, which helps with the photo taking. At the start of the tour, she gives you an assignment and that helps you to stay focused and concentrate on what your purpose is. She gives tips and stops at various stalls where snacks and food can be bought to try out different Colombian dishes and drinks. Wear boots and is you have a DSLR camera, keep your camera bag in front of you and be alert at all times. The second two hours were spent in Getsemani. This trendy neighbourhood has lots of activity and is a good place for street photography. Paola shares many tips and here she also gave us two assignments to help us focus and to teach us to look with a keen eye and from different angles. My sister and I did this tour with Paola on a Saturday and we can recommend it to any person interested in photography.

    Worth it!
    Paola and her team were incredibly easy to work with and very professional. Their photographer and his brother (assistant) showed up on time, was very friendly, had an assistant to help manage our things as we walked through the city, and gave us photos back within a little over a week. The overall quality of the pics were also great and we

    A real local girl
    Paola is a wonderful guide for everything! She knows the city inside and out. She is bright, educated, fun-loving. You can trust her implicitly. You'll be lucky to have her by your side.

    Amazing photographer and guide!
    Paola is magnificent! I originally booked her for a two hour photo tour and then ended up spending a good part of three days with her because she is so fantastic. She took me on two separate tours of Cartagena and is deeply informed not only about photography and the best light and angles for pictures but also about the history and everything else to be known about the city. She also took some really magnificent photos of me and my family that I will treasure forever. Paola is a delight to be with, speaks impeccable English and I could not recommend her more highly.

    The Professional
    From beginning to end Paola was the consummate professional. Instructing us how to walk, checking the lighting so our pics were just right and making us feel at ease. I will definitely book Paola on my next trip.

    A memorable photo session with Paola
    The most memorable experience we had in Cartagena. Paola is an amazing person with a positive and spirited character. She knows how to handle every situation and gives patiently directions in order to achieve the best possible results with her camera. We've received her photos in no time and we were amazed for their quality. We don't have enough words to thank her for the magnificent photos, her valuable time, her talent and her dedication in promoting the history, the life and the people of beautiful Cartagena.

    Paola was truly the best! Not only is she kind, patient, and devoted; she is also very determined to capture the best images with perfect background/locations. She is prompt and responds within short time to your messages with direct contact to her. She has a personality that would immediately make you feel as if you’ve known her for much longer than the session. She delivered her photos within the timeframe as promised. I highly recommend booking her, you will not be disappointed.

    A Cartagena Must See!
    My second tour with Paola, and it did not disappoint! This tour offers a deep cultural dive into the Mercado de Bazurto. Paola has an amazing rapport with the locals which will enable you to achieve your best shots. Additionally, she willingly shares her expertise in order to raise yours. This is a fantastic way to experience the cuisine and culture of the area. Bottom line, this is a must do tour in Cartagena.

    If you really want to capture the feel of the Cartagena streets.
    As always when I travel to a new location, I enjoy taking a photo tour. I noticed Paola had fantastic reviews so it was a no brainer contacting her and setting up an appointment. Her knowledge of the area and rapport with the locals enabled me to take incredible pictures which really captured the feel of the street. Additionally, her skill as a teacher really pushed, and helped me grow as a photographer. Highly recommended!

    Photo shoot in Cartagena
    I booked a photo shoot with Paola for our group of 4 people, we like quality photos and thought it's a good idea to have it done with the professional photographer on the streets of Cartagena. In a few minutes after I booked through tripadvisor Paola face-timed me and went over all the details. She also texted me with the suggestions of places to see and restaurants, making sure we're good and know what to do when in Cartagena. when we met for the photo-shoot and spent a few hours with her, changing our outfits, she wasn't happy with the energy of our group and suggested to meet another day for some additional time, she just wanted to be satisfied and happy with her own work! And she made us absolutely happy with the outcome! We received all the pictures in a week and they're amazing! Thank you very much Paola! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and what's best of all that now we got a good friend in Cartagena!!!

    Perfect Photography Skill Improvement Tour
    Paola met me at my hotel where she asked me several photography based questions to determine my level of expertise. I mostly take photos while on vacation, and really wanted to do a photography tour since the one I experienced in Cuba was so great. This one did not disappoint either! Paola is very knowledgeable in her field and she encouraged me to go manual during this photo tour (I mostly shoot in Ap mode and sometimes in Sp mode). She pushes you to get outside of your comfort zone. It was challenging, but I got some good shots. One recommendation: walk with smaller pesos for tipping, as taking photos comes with a price of a tip or of buying something from the person. Overall, a must do tour while you're in Cartagena.

    Off the beaten path unforgettable experience!
    Cartagena is a beautiful city that has so much to offer and Paola's photography tour is definitely a great way to experience it from a different perspective and better yet you get to bring your great photos with you! I am a amateur photographer wanting to expand/explore more on the "technical" side and Paola was able to break it down for my level. I really enjoy the 2-3 hour tour, it did encourage me to take my photography to the next level. Thanks Paola!

I highly recommend working with Paola Sanchez.

Modeling is a form of artistic expression to me and so it is a very personal and very vulnerable experience to invite others to be a part of it. Paola and her team took my needs and requests very seriously and custom tailored this session to help me produce incredible content.

Additionally, she gave me insider tips and recommendations that brought the rest of my visit to Cartagena to the next level.

Whether you are a content creator, aspiring content creator, or looking to capture some memories, Paola is the way to go.

I traveled to Cartagena with 14 friends in celebration of my birthday. We wanted to document and capture the moment so we confirmed a memory session with Paola.

The photo experience was amazing. We met Paola at a central location and she lead us through so many beautiful spots within the walled city. She was absolutely encouraging and professional. Would love to work with her again when I return.

The photographs came out absolutely amazing! Everyone was pleased— so many options to choose from. Truly a moment we won’t forget.

Absolutely loved the afternoon with Paola in Cartagena. She took the most lovely pictures, to keep a wonderful memory alive and looking at the pictures and her posing ideas definitely invites to dream of more travel and getting out to see the world. Book a session with her and if she inspires you to dance, then do so for the camera!

I was lucky enough to take a tour of Cartagena de Indias, at the beginning of December 2022, with the excellent photographer and visual artist Paola Sánchez. She made me experience the city from another side, with great intensity and magic. I deeply appreciate this experience and highly recommend it.

I took a private class with one of Paola's associates, Jason, and it was phenomenal. First off, the correspondence between Paola and me was exceptional. she truly was interested in making sure the photography class was not only a visual experience but also that I enhance my photography skills which was my main objective. Jason was so patient with me, an excellent teacher, and just overall a delightful person. I highly recommend any of the photography sessions that Paola and her team offer. It really inspired me to spend more time learning the craft and enjoying the outcome of my photographs. .

Celebrating my 40th birthday in Cartagena started with THIS photo session around the town! Paola and her assistant were wonderful and for a group of 6, were able to encourage us all to enjoy a professional photo session! It can feel uncomfortable sometimes having someone take photos as I don’t really know how to pose. Paola gave great direction to allow our natural personalities to shine! Thanks again and highly recommend!

Paola was great! She captured our pics very well. She was very knowledgeable and helpful and did not rush. We had kids and she was able to get and keep them engaged! I highly recommend. She also arranged our different tours and transportation and was on top of everything. We felt very taken care of and didn't have to worry about anything. She was very responsive and open to changes we had.
