First, my apologies for not posting sooner. I took the full day photography tour with Chris & Bonnie mid May, 2022. I have had my Nikon D3100 with a 28 to 300 mm lens for a long time. I used it primarily to point & shoot using limited automatic features of the camera. Chris was very patient teaching me the broader capabilities of the camera utilizing the manual settings. We additionally compared the photo's taken with the manual settings versus the automatic settings to see the enhancements that could be made. Photo's were taken of waterfalls, vista's & wild flowers along with Blue Ridge Parkway. Bonnie pointed out areas that I would have overlooked & assisted in framing the picture to yield the most interest. It was an enjoyable day stopping at multiple beautiful spots.

Chris is a fantastic guide! I learned a lot about my camera and came away with lots of beautiful photos. We got to see several spectacular and lesser known waterfalls. My favorite part was getting out on the rocks at the 2nd waterfall, lots of interesting photos. The views from the Vistas along the blue Ridge Parkway were amazing as well. We lucked out with sunlight hitting the trees just so. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

I lucked out and got a private tour with Chris since no one else signed up! He was kind enough to let me borrow a few things for my new camera. Chris was patient, encouraging, and fun while I experimented with different camera settings and compositions. I learned a lot, got some great shots, and am so glad I booked this birthday present for myself!

Chris was quick to pick up on my skill level and molded his instruction to my needs. Chris is experienced and skilled, and this was a personalized learning experience. I came away with some fantastic images that I’ve already submitted for consideration in a juried photography exhibition.
