YES… you can get amazing pictures with the phone on your camera!
Newer smart phone cameras have image quality and clarity that rivals (and many times beats) many point and shoot cameras.
Add to those great features the fact that they are so small and easy to use- no wonder they are the “go to” camera for more and more people every day.
We are professional photographers, we understand that there are MAJOR differences between a camera phone and a point and shoot and a DSLR camera.
However, once you learn and understand a few simple things about the camera you have, it’s fairly easy to get pictures you’ll be proud to display on your wall at home or even at the office!
So don’t let the fact that you only have your smart phone with you on your trip deter you from joining us on our Galveston Photo Walk.
We’ll show you how to use your camera phone to take seriously cool pictures.
Regardless of your skill level, if photography is your passion, Galveston Photo Walks will inspire and guide you to take amazing pictures in this historic, artsy, laid back, nature- rich island city.
Our photographers are experienced and well versed in the many different camera types so that they help you unlock the potential of your camera to capture amazing pictures.
They are also patient teachers and love to help people that share their passion for photography.
You will take home the best souvenirs, a new understanding and knowledge of your camera, exceptional photographs that you’ll be happy to hang on the wall at home AND memories that last a lifetime!
This photo walk is designed to inspire your creativity and allow you to learn new ways of using your smart phone’s camera.

Downtown Galveston Photo walk
If you love history, architecture, harbors, boats & birds, you’ll love this photo tour!
This tour begins in historic downtown Galveston Island. Galveston has a wonderful and colorful history that in many ways has been preserved in the architecture of the stately and ornate buildings throughout the area.
This area has more unique places to photograph than just about any other on the Island! And we’ll show you our secret locations, the back alleys and corners that most people have no idea exist!
On this tour, we will be walking through downtown Galveston photographing old metal doors, brick alley ways and unique architecture.
And then we’ll walk a few blocks down to the harbor to photograph the “Mosquito Fleet” our affectionate name for our shrimp boat fleet and the various sea birds that live there.
You’ll get detailed instruction on how to choose the best angle to compose for the best shot.
We’ll help you with any questions you have about your camera too! Best of all, you’ll take amazing photos you’ll be proud to hang on your wall when you get back home!
