His Light Workshops presents New Orleans 2014


This will be our first workshop without Bill. We are hoping that it will be a great success! I've been researching and have found us a great hotel deal in the French Quarter. New Orleans, Louisiana – May 7th – 11th, 2014 Limited to 12 Attendees $995. Workshop Fee Leaders: Jim Begley, Chuck Barnes and Snake Barrett

Come join us as we travel around the iconic southern port city of New Orleans. We’ll hit the streets of the French Quarter taking images of the architecture, music and street scenes. Boarding a streetcar we will head for the Garden district to make photos of antebellum mansions and pristine gardens. We’ll stand on the steps at Jackson Square, sipping Cafe Au Lait or hot chocolate, eating beignets from Cafe Du Monde as we wait for sunset.

Even though we won’t be in the city during Mardi Gras, we will get to visit the largest working warehouse for storing and creating the fantastic floats that adorn the parade routes. Taking a short ferry ride across the great Mississippi River at night, will give us the opportunity to photograph the city lights.

We’ll stay on the edge of the French Quarter at great hotel. We don’t recommend that anyone rents a car, as parking is at a premium. We can walk to the French Quarter and hop streetcars to any other locations.

Come join us and as they say “Laissez les bons temps rouler” (Let the good times roll)
