I have done two tours/workshops with Kevin and look forward to catching another one when I am back in Chicago. He was flexible in scheduling and also before the first one, took the time to ask questions about my equipment, photography experience and knowledge of both my equipment and general photography concepts. I think this let us work very smoothly together from the beginning and I learned a lot from him. the first tour was the Route 66 tour (10-4). This is a fun family day trip and both photographers and non-photographers will enjoy it. He charges by the car, so if there are a number of budding photographers in the family, it is a great deal!. If not, everyone will still enjoy themselves. Kevin was very considerate and allowed the needs of my pregnant daughter to be a priority in setting our pace. We were the only people on the tour that day-Kevin hadn't really even started the tours for the season yet, but he knew I was coming from out of town and really worked with me and agreed to take us on the tour. When our time was up and he had to leave, he told us about a few more stops on down the road in case we wanted to continue on. We did and enjoyed those stops. It was a delightful day.
The second was a night photography workshop. Originally there were to be some other clients as well. The first time we were scheduled to go, the weather was very bad and Kevin let me know very early in the day that we needed to reschedule.. the date was re-set, and on the re-set date it was quite windy. The other clients cancelled and Kevin still took me out. We were mostly around north beach, working on angles, composition, different exposures. The blue hour was fabulous. We had to walk around some to adjust to the wind conditions and to take advantage of changes in lighting, but Kevin worked with me well over the two hours I was expecting so there was no reduction in shooting time on account of the time spent moving around. It was helpful to have hints on dealing with less than ideal conditions because that is so often what we have to shoot in! Being from out of town, I did not have a tripod with me and he generously loaned me one. Kevin really wants to give you a great experience. No question is too silly or too hard. he also explains things well. Kevin has a tremendous sense of place and this comes through in his photos and in the angles and composition of his photos, He will help you to have that too. One of my favorite Route 66 photos I took is one where he suggested using a slightly different perspective and angle than I had been using. I did and the photo says so much more as a result.
