If you own a Digital SLR Camera and mostly shoot in Auto Mode this tour is for you. If you really love photography and want to improve your photo skills this tour's for you. And if you have a passion for local culture when you travel instead of the usual overcrowded tourist attractions then this tour is definitely for you.

With just 10 persons twice weekly on a Monday and Thursday the St Lucia photo tour will take you on a special journey of both photography and an authentic St Lucian cultural immersion like none you have ever experienced before.

Learn what those fancy knobs on your camera can allow you to do, then practice using them as Kirk and his team help you discover how to make photo masterpieces like you never dreamed possible. Best of all - you'll have the pictures to prove it...

We were in port in St. Lucia for one day and I arranged to have Kirk's photo tour for our small family- two adults w/ widely disparate levels of familiarity with digital photography and a young 9-year old whose primary interests were loving old forts and the beach. Kirk shared his extensive expertise in photography- helping with technical photography basics... More

We just did a southern Caribbean cruise and St. Lucia was our second stop - I wish it had been the first!

What a special day this was, especially when Hunter, the 9 yo engineer in the family told me that he was bored even before we started. So imagine a photography learning tour that included a trip to some old military ruins where Hunter got to imagine the enemy invading St Lucia, but instead of shooting them with cannons his weapon...

On a vacation to St. Lucia I decided to propose to my now fiancé and wanted to capture the moment. After some looking and research I decided to reach out to Kirk. Kirk was amazing from day one; the personal time he put in to get to know my fiancé and I, going out to many areas to find the... More

Great day out with kelly and Mark, her hubby. Mark had already introduced her to some of the photo jargon, which helped things to click as I got into explanations about depth of field and rule of thirds etc. It is so delightful helping anyone who loves photography escape the dreaded Auto button by showing them how much creative control...

Kirk, Tony, myself and our travel agent formed a fantastic relationship before the magic even began. Just the planning alone and emails and phone conversations leading up to our trip were incredible.

Straight to the bottom line: If you want to improve your photography and have a digital SLR camera, you won't do better on St Lucia than to schedule a photo shoot with Kirk. I'd give him ten stars if I could. Kirk is extremely knowledgeable and articulate, a patient teacher with a marvelously dynamic personality. You'll have lots of fun... More

If you want a day that's a delightful mix of meetings with interesting people and visits to sights a little off the tourist track while getting some practical nuggets from an excellent photographer this is for you. Even lunch, taken in a great cafe, presents an opportunity for photos and conversation.
