We will begin our Experience at the iconic Oxford Exchange: •With a bit of local flare and yummy local coffee, I'll provide recommendations of beverages and purchase a café drink of your choice. •We'll then get cozy in the chic atmosphere and start to go over the history of photography and how to see light. •I'll share some techniques for using the manual settings, as well as shooting with phones, while I pass out my 'cheat sheets' to photography. •From there, we'll put our skills to the test in different photo exercises, while sharing and being critiqued by the peers in our group. •Before heading Downtown, we will have some time to explore Oxford Exchange on our own. •We'll then make our way across the river - shooting landscape and street photography at some of my favorite LOCAL spots, symbolic of Tampa, along the way. •& We'll end our tour at FMoPA, Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, where I will pay for your admission and we will conclude our tour.
I've been a Certified Tour Director for two years, touring all across the country. And have focused my passion for travel on local culture and why it's important to keep it integrated with tourism. I realized my passion for photography in 2004 when I took my first lessons in it. Since then, I have participated in numerous courses ranging from digital, film, and just fun hobby classes; even being featured in a gallery and awarded the winner for a travel photo competition. Photography allows me to see the morality in humanity and I look forward to seeing how you capture the world around you!
