Things to Consider

Sturdy walking shoes, poncho/rain gear, water bottle, sunscreen, hat, are necessary. The camera as a tool; proficiency with one’s equipment will serve in the enjoyment more fully. During the Photo tour/workshops we will take time to share our views from the days photography on your laptops.

The four days I spent with Geraint made for the best photography workshop I've ever attended. He was generous with his time and even more giving with his knowledge. His patient, supportive approach created a learning environment where I could proceed at my own pace. We explored some wonderful locations and were able to interact with a number of colorful characters. Mark van Doren said, "The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery." That's a perfect description of what Geraint does.

My photo tour with Geraint was worth every penny.

He is a master at seeing beautiful compositions where most would drive by without a second glance. The tour was from 9-5: no sunrise, no sunset, yet he still found many good subjects. Geraint gave suggestions on how to frame, focus, and expose the shots. He brought a laptop and for some of the shots we did post-processing. This immediate feedback was helpful in visualizing the final result when taking shots.

While driving between locations, we had the opportunity for unhurried conversation about photography. This tour is about the art of photography, not the camera gear. Afterwards, I felt creatively re-charged.

I would recommend Geraint’s photo tour for any level of photographer, from beginner to professional.

Bring all equipment you require including spare batteries and flash cards for the camera. Supplies are few and far between once we are on location.

On a photo tour or workshop the places we visit will bring us close to the landscape, nature, wildlife, and unique architecture of New Mexico and the American Southwest. We will endeavor to be aware in making the least impact on the places where people live and where nature thrives.
