New Orleans is known for it's historical homes especially in the Garden District area. The Architecture Styles of New Orleans are rooted in the Garden District including The Famous Author, Ann Rice, "Interview with a Vampire." The Historic homes that can be seen and photographed are a taste of history as beautiful and as colorful as ever, including the beautiful styled Iron Fences - huge Oak Trees that line the New Orleans streets as an example.
We can see one of the famous cemeteries as shot in the TV Series CSI New Orleans. The history and images to be gotten are a part of the New Orleans history you don't want to miss. See the street cars that run along St. Charles Ave and explore the Avenues, the Boutique areas of Magazine Street... A very interesting Part of New Orleans Culture for sure.
Much to see in the Uptown areas of New Orleans. We will start exploring some of Southern Architecture and large structural frontal Columned homes, including architecture along Prytania and St. Charles Avenue's. We venture off into the University areas showing the colleges nestled in the uptown parts of town, including the famous Audubon Park & some of it's attractions, Oak Trees & bronze statues.
Then off to photograph some of the areas that some of the locals see and do - perhaps a little differently than the tourist areas of town... Where ever we go in New Orleans it's filled with color and culture unlike anywhere else in the country.
We go and explore the Marigny areas of New Orleans which are just below the French Quarter where you can see a different side of New Orleans History as a work in progress.
Many artists live in the Marigny areas. NOCCA a famous arts school for high school students is housed in this area, offering much inspiration for students.
Sometimes a New Orleans Brass Band can be seen performing on the streets of the Marigny. We also explore the Esplanade Ave. and it's architecture and color... and venture into parts of Treme and off to some of the older parts of town featuring a different cultural experience.
One could spend days photographing in the New Orleans cemeteries. There are many cemeteries in New Orleans and we focus on the most interesting ones for photography. As New Orleans is only 8 feet above Sea Level Tombs need to be above ground.
These historical structures and statues make for some very beautiful imagery, colorful and monotone photography. We start in the Garden District seeing one of the most widely filmed Cemeteries to the TV and in the Movie industry. You will see different styled historical tombs.
Then we venture off to several Areas featuring these interesting historical Grave areas which houses some very beautiful Statues. New Orleans cemeteries are huge, historical and offer a taste of history you won't find anywhere else.
Whatever you choose when working with us we want to help you be better with your camera and how you use it. We believe in starting form the basics as a foundation. One can read many books on photography and until you have someone standing there with you and telling you why it is or isn't working, you won't get it as quickly as you may think. Besides all that we make your experience with us fun and memorable as we shoot in your desired locations. Whether on the Gulf coast or in New Orleans we make it interesting and your images will be a direct result.
We are happy to discuss what projects you have coming up and are eager to help!
