Photograph the best of the World with our Tours

Enjoy a very special experience in the French Quarter in New Orleans, and have your pictures taken by a professional photographer!

During your adventure through the French Quarter with an experienced photographer and New Orleans resident with intimate knowledge of the city, you will be photographed in the most remarkable locations of the city. In addition to the informative tour around New Orleans, you will also have a unique collection of your own professional images.

The tour will be exclusively yours, as it will be limited to the members of your private party. We will walk and photograph the locations in the area at the speed you are most comfortable, either fast or slow. Our goal is to provide you with a memorable tour, and the pictures of the landmarks you want.

Some of the areas of the French Quarter we can visit include, but are not limited to: Jackson Square, French Market, Bourbon Street, Cemeteries, Riverwalk, Preservation Hall, Royal Street, Cafe Du Monde, and many others. We hope you will visit us soon, and take advantage of this exceptional opportunity. If you have specific areas you wish to photograph, we can take you almost anywhere… including some very unusual places.

You will receive at least 50 photos from the 2 hour tour, and at least 75 photos from the 3 hour tour.
We will provide a CD of your professional quality images within 24 hours after the conclusion of your tour.
Typically, we deliver the CD to your hotel, but it can be mailed if necessary for a nominal fee.

Join us for an exciting tour of the waterfalls in the Tallulah Gorge State Park in Georgia. We are having this tour during an aesthetic water release, when the flow increases from 40 cfm to 200 cfm (cubic feet per minute). The water flow resembles what it was like before the dam was built.

We will cover all five waterfalls in the state park, so wear comfortable shoes and attire. This tour will require some fairly strenuous activity, so be prepared!

Itinerary will include: Capturing Water – how to photograph waterfalls
Cost: $198 per person

As with all our photography workshops, an sunrise and sunset hike from Canaan Valley Resort Lodge will begin and finish our days.  This is the start of  early fall color in the blueberries, maples and other native species.

Barranco Peru Photo World Tours churchesThe colorful architecture and the lovely people make this a great spot for our tour to grab a bite to eat and start shooting later in the day.

The bohemian heart of the city, Barranco represent both old world charm and an example of a middle class trying to surface. Quaint shops and street performers take up most of the day.Barranco Peru Pisco Sour

Churches are a symbol of the deep seated convictions of the Peruvian people with the ancient traditions of both the native cultures and Catholicism mixed heavily in the mix.

Art plays a vital part of the day to day life of most Peruvians. Many of the homes display beautiful works of art to all to see from their front porches.

Pisco Sours are a drink of the Peruvian locals. This Friday in San Martin we were surrounded by vendors offering this local intoxicating beverage.

Our tour started with our arrival into Lima, Peru. As the itinerary has some flexibility included in our photo tours, the scheduled plan changed due to flooding in the Machu Picchu Cuzco, Peru regions. Our days were adapted to include many more areas than were originally  planned.

Punta Hermosa is a striking beach 25km south of Lima. With its picturesque beaches and mountain views, our group had quite an opportunity to take stunning photos with little or no effort.

As with many of our Photo World Tours, life is good when the scenery is bold.
