I loved my photo tour with Chris. Before the tour I’d only shot pictures of family and friends to keep as memories of time spent together. I knew nothing about lighting or framing a photo, finding the “hero” or telling a story. Within just a few hours with Chris I learned so much about how to take more interesting photos. Chris’ patience made it easy for me to relax and enjoy the experience. His incredible skill and knowledge as a photographer made it a fantastic learning experience as well. With his added guidance around iPhone editing apps I am now excited to enter into the world of photography as an art and as a means of discovering and owning my creative voice. I highly recommend Chris and his photo tours.
