My husband and I have been visiting St. Augustine annually, sometimes two or three times a year for over thirty years; naturally, we have gobs of photographs. Our tour guide, Kyle, showed us a fresh perspective on the town we love so, and we are more than delighted with the quality of the pictures we took with his patient guidance.... More

My boyfriend and I are both photographers. So for his birthday, I wanted him to have an out of the box present. He LOVED the off the beaten path tour. Since we knew a lot about the technical side of photography, the guide focused more on taking us to fun places where we could get abstract shots. He coached us... More

you'll learn a lot in a short time and have fun doing it. Melanie's night tour is the best..just look at some of her work. A whole new genre for me..long exposure photography. Didn't know what a gray card was before this, and now I can meter light conditions. Took some of those cool pictures with light trails from cars... More

My friend and I are both interested in photography and thought the tour would help grasp a better understanding of our cameras and taking great pictures. I have to tell you this by far exceeded my expectations. We did all three tours and at each tour it was just the two of us. Melanie was our guide and was a... More

I took the "Downtown Tour" of St. Augustine yesterday with Kyle. I enjoy photography and take decent pictures, but I am not a great photographer and need to improve my skills. Kyle walked the tour group ( only 2 ) to many places around St. Augustine and demonstrated several techniques that would help us become better photographers. During the process... More

I have a DSLR that I have no idea how to use the advanced manual features and no patience for an instruction manual. This tour was an awesome way to get to know your camera's capabilities. I had no idea the potential my photographs could have. I am from the area and Kyle, our tour guide, absolutely loves St. Augustine... More

We planned a short visit to St. Augustine and wanted to get the most out of it. This "Off the Beaten Path" tour with Melanie was wonderful! She is a terrific guide and photographer. She took us to places that provided great photo ops and her photo tips and explanations were great! We will definitely plan to do this tour... More

I'm a senior citizen who enjoys photographing life around me. I do a photo journal on Smugmug to keep my family & friends current when we're on extended trips. I have visited St Augustine many times but must say Melanie of Shutter Guides showed me a totally new prospective of looking at things with my camera's lens. I found this... More

This was so much fun! Melanie is an awesome tour guide and photographer, and she really enjoys helping everyone in the class get great shots. Walking around St Augustine and seeing things in different ways was an experience I'll never forget. I'll definitely be back for more tours!!

I took the "Off the Beaten Path" tour this year and it was another great photography experience. We were presented with prime photo subjects that we might otherwise not have found on our own. Last year, I was the only person for the "Downtown" tour with Melanie; this year (for "Off the Beaten Path") there were 9 of us and... More
