What you'll do

During this outdoor walking photo tour, you will unplug & relax while taking a creative time out. This original adventure will take your imaginative eyes and camera to secret spots located along our expedition. Together we will capture various images of true New Orleans moments, street vibes and everyday life. The city is full of endless visual surprises and you will learn how to seize the moment and take a photo that tells a story. You will see and experience the true essence of New Orleans and will have an exciting visual story to share. If you'd like photos of your group while touring, I will gladly capture some images for you. You will experience the true pulse of the city, created by the people, neighborhoods and constantly evolving cultural history. The photos taken can be used to create your own photographic story of the Big Easy. Use them instantly to upload on TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or whatever social media platform you choose. If that's not your thing create a New Orleans photo wall back home. A collage of smaller photos for that underutilized space. What a great story to be told over and over again. You will leave refreshed, relaxed and full of unique images to remember that extraordinary day meandering around the Crescent City.

We will spend time in French Quarter/Marigny neighborhoods. A funky bohemian area full of parks, public markets, levee access, amazing graffiti, street life, and quirky buildings.

Brian was a great guide and this trip experience was very unique. We booked the tour for our first morning in NOLA, so it was really a great introduction to the city (esp the French Quarter and Marigny). Can’t wait to see the photos! Also, Brian gave us some great recommendations about local restaurants, watering holes and jazz shows - made our shirt trip uniquely local!

Absolutely wonderful tour! Do not hesitate. You will see the highlights but getting to actively participate truly takes this experience to the next level. Kong was an excellent guide and was able to give us plenty of recommendations for later in our stay. We were so pleased with this experience and are looking forward to seeing the photos we took. A tour and a momento, you can’t beat that!!!

I had signed up for this Experience in order to find the visually compelling parts of New Orleans a tourist would normally miss. I got that and much more from Brian's excellent tour. He listened to and understood what interests me as a photographer and went out of his way to provide it, all the while providing some of the many stories and histories that make New Orleans such a fascinating place. A unique part of what Brian's tour does that I've not seen before is to provide everyone with a very capable camera, the photos from which are later made into a book. I had brought my own gear, but also took out that handy camera for several shots and it's quite capable. If you're in town and love photography, having a local get you the shots you want is crucial. In New Orleans, Brian will be my go-to guide.

Brian is a natural! You will be so happy you decided to do this experience. Brian is very knowledgeable about New Orleans and even more about photography and finding your own story. Brian shared interesting information throughout the experience and consistently coached us with our photography, providing feedback and inspiration. It was really great to have cameras (without our phones) to truly escape into the experience. The time flew by and my 15 year old son and I left feeling inspired, informed and happy about our time with Brian, who was really fun to be with. Can't wait to see what Brian does with our photos!

I love the pictures! Brian is professional and willing to take you to the places you ask him to. Usually, I bring my tripods when traveling but this time I used his service and it's worth it. He also provides water if you are thirsty. He will make you comfortable and less awkward when posing. I can recommend for those who are looking for self-portraits in NOLA.

RUN-don't walk- to sign up for this experience. Brian is incredibly thoughtful and accommodating and was prepared for everything. Parched? Brian has water! Skin frying under the sun? BAM! Brian has sunblock! ADHD? Brian has patience! We had an amazing time and Brian has a keen eye for unique scenes. I was perfectly happy walking around taking photos and then I learned he puts a photobook together of your shots! WHAT?!?! A great keepsake of a beautiful visit. I can't believe he isn't charging more for the experience.
