Julie crafted a wonderful private photography tour for us. We got some great shots of the wildlife, the coast and the cliffs, and we learned some different effects we could do with our cameras. But the big game changer for us was the exciting night photography! This is an area we have never delved into before, and Julie walked us through how to do it, from the settings to use on our cameras to the composition tips. We are so enthused about night photography now! Not only did Julie work with us in advance to create an itinerary to our liking and prepare us for what to expect, but she obviously spent a lot of time customizing a very detailed follow-up email which gave us some additional tips about some of the things we had learned throughout the day with her. She also sent some great resources for us to use in the future. Huge THANKS to Julie! She really helped us become much better photographers.

J&N: I was very happy to be able to introduce you to night photography and get you excited about it. There are some incredibly magical places in San Diego that look spectacular at night and I'm glad we got to take advantage of photographing them. I'm thrilled that you took such great shots and that you got so much out of our time together. I hope we can do another tour on a future visit to photogenic San Diego. ~ Julie

I learned SO much during my photo tour with Julie! She is a wonderful photography teacher and really helped me see compositions that I haven't noticed before. She gave me an exercise that assisted in my photo creativity. She shares many years of unbelievable experience, as well as being kind, patient, enthusiastic and fun. I love the locations she took me to and the photos.
