This is the group of photography enthusiasts that I lead during the most recent public photo walk through the streets of Antigua Guatemala. We had a blast with this group from Canada, France, Ireland and the U.S. as we captured with our cameras, from smartphones to point and shoots, street portraits, mermaids, giant kites, and the beautiful architecture of Antigua Guatemala. The AntiguaPhotoWalks.com are another way for me to share my passion for Antigua Guatemala, Photography and Guatemalans. If you are visiting Antigua Guatemala soon, don’t miss the opportunity to join a public photo walk or book a private photo walk, you will not regret it.
Below I am sharing one of the recent reviews left at my Antigua Photo Walks page on TripAdvisor.
The experience with Rudy exceeded all expectations. It was not just a marathon photo lesson, not just a “walk in the park,” not just a photo shoot. It was spending time being a fly on the wall, watching a master do his thing — getting in people’s faces, taking risks, warming up subjects so they agree to photos, catching them by surprise and then getting them in the palm of your hand. Concentration was on people/portraits, then on street scenes, then on capturing the beauty of a door or edifice. Willingly, Rudy shared hints about how to compose a riveting photo of a fashionable woman about to walk past him. What is amazing about Rudy is the extent to which he is willing to share his knowledge and his secrets (i.e. techniques he has honed over many years of professional photography). What’s more, he is warm and personable, as well as highly approachable. Plus, he’s ready to answer any questions, to comment (if you ask) on photos you’ve taken, and to offer suggestions, if you wish. If only there were a Rudy Giron in each magnificent or fascinating city around the world! —Susan, Chicago
