Unplug & relax on this creative time out. We will meet for coffee at French Truck Coffee on Chartres in the French Quarter to begin a 2 hr walking photo safari of the city. This adventure will take you and the provided Fuji XP140 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 capture some images and include in your book. After the adventure I will edit your images and compose a coffee table worthy photo book of our Captured by Kong NOLA Safari photographs you envisioned. After returning home, an unexpected memory will be delivered to the address you provide.
I have been photographing unique New Orleans people, places and things for over 10 years thru my photography business, Captured By Kong. I’m a passionate photojournalist and a City of New Orleans licensed professional Tour Guide with an adventurous eye and a need for exploration. After obtaining a Bachelors degree in Photojournalism from Metropolitan State University, my life has been an adventure ever since. I have captured storytelling images for the Telluride Daily Planet, The Times Picayune and all kinds of crazy local events & festivals.
