"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 daughters' photo taking 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.

Yes! Yes! Yes! A thousand times Yes!

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!
