This was our first photo tour, we learned a lot. Class size was just about right, so you could ask questions and be able to get feedback on your photos. Class was good for all cameras, and worked for all the different levels of photographers.
Jennifer was great, very helpful and informative! Can't wait to take another photo tour.

I have been on two photo tours, and both were fantastic. I think they would be great for locals or travellers; what a great way to get a flavor for the city. It is also good for all photography abilities and camera types. I was concerned I would feel weird with just a point and shoot, but it was great. I learned a lot and truly enjoyed being part of a group of shutterbugs.

I have gone on several "tours" and have loved the experiences. Jennifer is a great instructor who gives just the right amount of basic information and review to get you dialed in to controlling your camera. Her direction, suggestions, assignments and feedback have helped me to shoot technically and aesthetically better images. She is very personable, patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend taking a "tour” with her to anyone interested in having a fantastic experience taking pictures!

Whether you are just getting started, or someone that understands the workings of your camera, Portland Photo Tour is for you.
It's a very hands on "tour" that not only helps you understand better use of your camera, but also will give you a heads up on taking photo's at angles and lighting that you never dared, or thought of.
Excellent instruction, and very hands on with small groups. Actual experience - not a classroom setting where you just end up more confused than ever. I highly recommend any of the great tours that Jennifer offers.
