“I spent a week with Geraint traveling all over New Mexico and Southern Colorado. His skill and patience are amazing. His ability to help me see the beauty around me was well worth the money spent. In addition, he was a great teacher who spent all the time needed in any location to help me see and understand the picture. On my second adventure, I was in the area just for the day and he accompanied me to some new sites that were as breathtaking as those you see on his website. Geraint’s skill set allows him to be a guide, and instructor, and teacher all at one time. If you want some one-on-one instruction and help becoming a better photographer, Geraint is your man.”
