I went on the tour Saturday morning and it was a great mix of casual shooting, chatting, and getting shown around the French Quarter. Our guide was happy to work with another person on their cell phone app in "pro mode" and with showing shots she liked and trying to get to know what others liked. As she learned she'd... More

I had a delightful morning walking through the French Quarter with Natasha! I was the only one signed up and she didn't cancel the tour. Amazing. It was wonderful to be able to slow down and keep taking pictures until I got it right instead of constantly running to catch up with a non-photo taking group--or my spouse. :-) She... More

My boyfriend and I found out about this tour on our last day. The tour has already started when I called in. The gentleman who answered the phone was super helpful and professional. After learning that we are leaving soon, he called the instructor Natasha and helped us to set up a tour outside their regular business hour. What an... More

Was lucky enough to have Natasha lead this tour. She took me through the basics, increasing my understanding of my camera functions while introducing me to some amazing photographs of the French Quarter. This was a great way to explore the area while learning from someone that obviously enjoys what she does. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking... More

We had a group of 7-8 persons, which included 2 young children with point-and-shoot cameras, with adults who ranged from beginners to intermediates. Natasha was our guide and she was great.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
