My husband and I made our first trip to this beautiful island of St.Lucia and Kirk played a huge part in making it a memorable one.

Most of my photography is with clients from north of St Lucia rather than south. So there was a real island vibes working with Denecia & Keston from Trinidad. We rocked some really cool photos on a clifftop overlooking both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean before chilling on a nearby beach with kite surfers making the most of... More

My wife and I did a private photo tour of St. Lucia with Kirk. He was great. He is dedicated to helping you improve your photography as well as taking you to some really interesting places to shoot. He knows the island well and everywhere you go, people know Kirk too! I can't imagine a better tour guide than Kirk.... More

Learn your digital camera controls and principles of good photography in the morning workshop, experience the (extraordinary, fantastic, wonderful, to-die-for) local cuisine for lunch, and practice your new photo knowledge in the afternoon. Kirk Elliot is a gifted photographer and a patient, gifted instructor to boot. I was a somewhat advanced film photographer but never seemed to be able to... More

We were arriving Christmas day in St. Lucia on the Royal Princess, and were not impressed with the tours focusing mainly on hanging out at the beach, offered by the cruise lines, so I checked out several tours which had great ratings on "tripadvisor" for several of the islands we were visiting. Kirk’s Photo Tour caught my eye, as I... More

Best excursion of the entire cruise! Kirk is very passionate about photography and made the day memorable. Very professional and fun. Kirk made prior contact to see what photography skills we had and then customized the tour to fit. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in photography.

Firstly, I must apologise for the major delay in writing this review; I don't frequent this site often and it kept being put off.

Well I'm guessing that this was a really well received Photo Tour judging from the fact that Matthew is making time 2 years later to post his review!

The beauty of a Private Photo Tour is that together we set the itinerary and the pace, plus we are free to change things on the fly.

Amazing day out with David!

Our day started out very, very rainy. This of course can make for beautiful yet challenging photo opportunities. The day started with an outdoor classroom style lesson in the heart of Castries with pounding rain all around.

So unless it's a pounding hurricane I see no reason to stop because of rain. In fact rain makes for some really cool pictures, whether it's due to the raindrops on flowers or the even lighting that cloudy skies provide for portraiture. With umbrellas and plastic bags to protect cameras there was simply no stopping us... And while I've always... More
