Coming soon! Photo walks, Tours & Workshops in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada!
Huatulco’s original photo walking & tour company was created shortly after internationally-exhibited and published fine art & documentary photographer Kevin Spreitz moved to Huatulco from Canada. Kevin wanted to share his passion for photography, and empower others to develop a photographer’s eye and learn to see more creatively — something that will last a lifetime – while also showing them his beautiful new home town in paradise.
Join Kevin and discover Huatulco with his photography and culture walks, tours and workshops. Kevin will help you capture amazing pictures of Huatulco’s culture, the church and market, street scenes, villages, seascapes, landscapes, and places beyond. With Kevin’s signature inspiring and humourous style, he will teach you easy photo tips and how to see creatively with your eye and camera or smartphone, whether you are a beginner, amateur or advanced photographer! And it’s your tour, so everyone gets individual time and learns at thier own pace and level!
There’s also fascinating cultural and historical fun facts about Huatulco’s past and present. Each walk or tour is an eye-opening experience for photo enthusiasts, history buffs, street explorers and Instagrammers. Discover lifelong observation skills and renew your appreciation for seeing details in your surroundings in a new light. So much more than a walking photo class, even non-photographers are welcome! There are many walks, tours, and workshops to choose from, or create with Kevin your own custom designed photo tour or class, and you’ll uncover hidden gems off the beaten path that are not easy to find on your own, while improving your photography. Better images are just a walk away!

"Super fun! Thank you Kevin! I wish we did this on the first day of our vacation to Huatulco! The photo walk more than exceeded our expectations! My husband and I took shots of people and things we otherwise wouldn't have taken if not for Kevin's professional expertise. He encouraged us to be "fearless" to capture the true essence of it, which made it that more exciting. Not only was it a tour, it was an educational experience; we learned effective portrait composition, how to tell a "story" through a camera lens, overview on the relationship between shutter speed, ISO and Aperture settings and lots more..." – Soula, Canada.
"Very educational! He took us to parts of La Crucecita that were off the beaten path and showed us the way families live and how to best capture it. Loved the tour and would highly recommend it - and I will probably do it again when I go back!" – Elise, USA.
"Fun and educational! As a keen photographer there were some specific areas I wanted to work on and Kevin tailored our walk to accommodate and help me - he knows his stuff...a good couple of hours well spent." – Julie, Canada.
"One of my favorite tours! Kevin is a very interesting and informative guide. I could see a change in my daughter's photo making by the end of the tour...We took the tour on our last day in town, he took us to places that we didn't even know were there!" – Sue, USA.
"Great way to see La Crucecita and improve your photography at the same time! Even if your interest is only minimal it is still a great way to see the town in very pleasant company." – David, UK.
I would love to join Kevin for a fun and informative walk to improve my photography, discover the streetscapes, history, & culture of Huatulco, learn to see more creatively, better understand my camera or smartphone, and develop lifelong observation skills through photography!
