Waterfall and Sunset Photos on the Blueridge Parkway
Kerrie_N, Aug 2022
J drove us to a waterfall and some scenic viewpoints on the Blueridge Parkway to take photos. He had offered to let us cancel due to the weather conditions, but we chose to go ahead. Even with the fog blocking a lot of our view, the scenery was beautiful. He taught me two techniques for capturing waterfalls and sunsets. He personalized the lesson to my photography experience, and we enjoyed the tour.
A great photographic experience.

The weather did not cooperate to allow the planned itinerary but J more than compensated by taking us to some great sites for some great photographic opportunities. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. A lot of driving but turned a weather bust into a memorable experience.
Wonderful Photography tour

My wife and I had a wonderful day with J. He took us to some excellent spots for some great shots. I am an experienced amateur photographer, but my wife is new to photography. He was very helpful with camera settings and suggestions for composition for both of us. Even though it was cloudy we were able to get some shots worth framing thanks to J's suggestions. He was very friendly and we enjoyed our time with him. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
This is an Outstanding...

This is an Outstanding experience. The Scenery was beautiful. J is an exceptional host and instructor.
Two thumbs up from the two of us!

J is very personable and knowledgeable! I purchased this as a birthday gift for my husband who is a very experienced photographer. Being at completely different skill levels, as I am a beginner, J made sure we both got the help we needed and wanted! He definitely knows around the area and where the less-travelled locations and views are to be seen! Highly recommend for a special experience!

Wonderful time!

We had a wonderful time with Amanda as our guide. She answered all our questions about taking the best photos. She knew all the best places to go to get great photos of waterfalls and the sunset-perfect day!! I would definitely recommend this tour.
He’s a live textbook

Jay was awesome as a tour guide to the Pisgah National Forest. Not only did he take me to places I did not know about but the tips he gave me to improve my photography were priceless. This is a must do for the person who enjoys taking pictures and wants to up there game with their pictures.
