This week I had the opportunity to lead another private photo walk through the villages of San Pedro Las Huertas, San Gaspar Vivar and San Juan del Obispo. As I mentioned to Denise and Osvaldo, this is what Antigua Guatemala look like about 40 years ago. We got the chance to experience and to photograph façades of houses and churches, public water tanks and washbasins [pilas], volcanoes, coffee plantations, dogs [lots of chuchos], new residential developments, the cemetery, flowers, public schools, lots of kids, an artisan workshop and a house being built [almost 85% done] for over 5 hours. Though out I am sharing my tips and tricks to capture the essence of the daily life in Antigua Guatemala.
If you can not book a private photo walk, you can always look at www.AntiguaPhotoWalks.com for upcoming public photo walks. In fact, come and join me in the next photo walk that I will be leading, “Revealing the secrets of Antigua Guatemala” on September 27.
What a great way to spend my only day in Antigua after a month in San Pedro La Laguna! Rudy’s knowledge of Antigua and it’s history as well as his encouragement and advice on how to ‘get the shot’. helped me get a great set of photos while learning more about Antigua. He has a well honed ability to set up great candid shots and taught us how to engage authentically with people on the street so it was fun for all. As an experienced photographer I can enthusiastically recommend Rudy’s photo walks! —Robert Shank
