NEW ORLEANS PHOTO WALKS

New Orleans is a Photographer’s Paradise

“If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.” Architecture from Baroque to Modern, the buildings and Cemeteries of New Orleans tell the story of a peculiar American city heavily influenced by its French, Spanish and Caribbean roots. Its diverse historical influences have impacted the urban fabric as much as the culture itself.

Photo Walks Led by Award Winning Professional, Local College Level Instructor

Professional Photographers are not very good teachers, they can’t explain the technical stuff that you need to understand. Our Photography Instructors are Professional Photographers who can explain the technical and compositional aspects you need to know.

A Photo Walk for Everyone

Beginners, Hobbyists and Advanced; Smart Phones, Pads, Point and Shoot, DSLR, and Mirrorless.

“One of my favorite things to do when visiting a new city is to take a photo tour because it’s a great way to practice my hobby while learning about a new place. This tour was excellent for both. I met Donald, the instructor, at the Cypress Grove Cemetery, and spent two hours touring the location with him. Donald is a local photography teacher. In addition to teaching me new photography techniques, he also educated me about New Orleans’ interesting history and burial practices. I highly recommend this tour.”

“This is review is a little late, but my husband and I really enjoyed our walking tour of the french quarter with Donald in early May 2018. We met him in Washington Artillery Park. Donald knew a ton about the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter, and was a terrific teacher to help us learn more about how to compose great photos. I loved that I could learn with my iPhone rather than carrying my big 35mm camera…since I always have my iPhone with me. We totally lucked out that day as we were the only two people signed up for our tour so we ended up with a private tour that Donald was able to tailor a bit to our interests. We highly recommend this tour!”

New Orleans Photo Walks
Donald Crais

A native New Orleanian, born in the Irish Channel, I returned to New Orleans after living 15 years in the Kansas City area. The lure of the eclectic spirited community, festivals and music and of course the food made coming home an easy decision.

While in KCMO, I was fortunate to be exposed to great photographic learning opportunities which developed my eye and passion. And what a treat to return home, to all the amazing photo ops here. Street photography, architecture, wildlife, nature, cemeteries – endless opportunities.

Having 40+ years as a photography enthusiast, retired from the medical field, and past president of a local camera club and now as an adjunct instructor at a local college, I share my passion for photography with beginner and advanced level students developing their skills and eye. Welcome to my home!
