This experience gave us a whole new perspective on photography. We learned new ways to look at the landscape around us and incorporate it into a truly creative piece of art with our photography. The guide was incredibly talented and knowledgeable and offered instruction at a level we could comprehend. He took the time to help us learn how to make our photos beautiful with available online editing applications. We were able to apply what we learned right away. We highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to enhance their photography skills.

Great ideas for just right photos. Even a novice photographer can easily pick up great tips and techniques while more polished photo takers can polish their concepts . Well worth the two hour adventure!

Very nice photo lesson
Michel_F

I was lucky, that day I was the only person in the class, so I got a private photo lesson from David for $85. which is a good deal! David is both a photographer, teach, as well as artisft (sculptor), so he has the experience to talk about composition, light, etc. Overall, the lesson was very useful to remind me of things I had heard before, but I forgot, particularly around shapes, forms and what to avoid doing. Then we also spent time on SW editing on the phone, which was really useful.

David opened our eyes to a new way of viewing the world through the lens of our phones, all with the beautiful backdrop of the Santa Fe Plaza as our muse. I would recommend this lesson to anyone interested in learning from a true artist who also happens to be a lovely human being. Thanks to David for sharing your gifts with us. We learned a ton about the art of photography and so much more.

David was a great teacher, very patient, very talented and knowledgeable without being overbearing. I have been a student of photography for 12 years and in two short hours I learned even more from him. I highly recommend his photo tour to photographers of all levels.

I learnt a lot grom David, who is patient, clear and knows what we need as amateurs. Composition, form and lighting are the tricks we need to know. Favid also taught us how to use Dnapseed to polosh the pics we took.

Inspiration to view from different positions of same scene and introduction to editing apps on my phone were my big take-aways. Found out that my phone takes better pictures and more versitile than my SLR for quick point and shoot.

Great photography intro lesson!
Raju_S
, Jul 2021
It was a great photography intro lesson. In two hours intervals, David tried to cover as much as he can from the photographic apps to composition, lighting, and portrait photography. I highly recommend this lesson for anyone who is visiting Santa Fe, has an interest in photography, and has beginners' skills.
