  • I did a Morning Photo Shooting Tour in Cusco which I can thoroughly recommend. We started our tour around Plaza de Armas taking some photos of the Cathedral and Iglesia La Compania from a position allowing reflections of the churches in a fountain. We then continued and shot some photos with star effects into the sun under the arcades of the Plaza. At the upper part of San Blas we photographed the famous Gate as well as the street and buildings winding down to the town centre. Attending the Procession of Locals during the Meeting of the Mary Statue of Santa Ana with the One from Poroy was my personal highlight being the only Western Tourist there while Inti Raymi was going on. This opportunity allowed a non touristic photography of locals and scenes of the procession. Towards the end of our session we walked down to Mercado San Pedro taking pictures of several shopkeepers. Without the local photographer it would simply have been impossible to visit as many locations as we did within a relatively short time frame and getting access to people who were willing to be photographed. He not only gave me a lot of tips for composition but also encouraged me to shoot in full manual mode in the future making better use of the function buttons of my camera. A short photo critique and some advice on Lightroom post processing functionalities, I had not been aware of, completed our seession. He is a very creative, talented and experienced photographer so that I enjoyed our common tour a lot. He is empathic and an excellent mentor on what to improve in ones photography. It was a real pleasure being with him on the Cusco Morning Photo Shooting Tour and I can strongly recommend to engage him for photography in Cusco.
