Frank from Philadelphia,
the Montmartre Paris tour in November 07, and had a great time.
It was just me and Sab so he had a lot of time to help me
compose my shot and explain the area and its history. We had
similar Nikon cameras so he also showed me a few tricks on how
to use some of its features which I have never used before."
amazing how quickly Sab could find an interesting angle or
subject to take pictures of where I would have never even
noticed it. I was so glad I found his tour when I was booking my
"If you like to
travel and like to take pictures, I feel its so important to
know how to take a good photograph no matter what type of camera
you have. Thanks Sab!"
Jason from Phoenix, Arizona, USA:
A single day that I will never forget! Highly, highly
was in Italy actually. But I arranged a long layover in Paris
as I really wanted to include her. When I had discovered that I
was the only person on Sab's tour for that evening, I told him a
bit about myself and asked if he could redirect the tour to
whatever he thought I may be interested in seeing/photographing.
that work out nicely! Sab turned out to be brilliant and very
accommodating. He put so much more into the tour than was even
required. Those who see the photos here at home have a hard time
believing that this was all done in one day. Then I tell them
the tour didn't start until 4pm and they surely think I'm
telling stories! If you have an opportunity to extend/customize
your photo tour, I highly recommend it. Sab makes a point in
showing you how to really 'see', not just photograph. If you
can't see the shot, you can't get the shot. Therefore, you begin
to see things that you would have never normally given a second
look. Sab helps you to view things as an artist, but the
'postcard' shots are still available if you want to shoot like
that as well.
"Next tip -
Do this first BEFORE you vacation begins. I went to many other
towns in Italy after my experience with Sab. I would have never
taken the kind of photos I did if I had not had the lessons. In
fact, there were many places (churches) that didn't allow
photos. Yet I was still looking at things as a photographer. It
was commented many times by my group that I pointed out things
that they just passed right up. One person began to consistently
ask me, 'what do you see here?'.
"Now as I am
home, my photos are amazing me every time I look at them. Book
quality... I mean sell-able! This single trip with Sab has truly
changed my life as an artist as my 'eye' has not stopped and I
plan to continue to improve as I see such an importance in doing
this for my own creative growth. For you can't paint it if you
can't 'see' it."
Joanna from Toronto, Canada:
"Just took a
peek through some of your blogs and am reminded of what a
fabulous photographer you are! Thanks for posting so many
great & inspirational pictures online... it's so great to be
able to see the work you're doing!
"I recognized 2
photos on the blog that I think you took on our tour in
Montmartre (kind of cool!) I guess your camera must have been
working at the beginning of the tour! (The pics from mid
Sept are the ones I recognize).
stopped by to say hello & encourage you in your art and your
work - amazing!"
Marsha from New
"Sab, the tour was an
inspiring learning experience with guidance not only on
wonderful 'things' to take photos of, but different ways to
approach a particular photo to make it different from a 'front
on' shot. (Also, help with my camera and terminology.)
discussed, perhaps art can't be taught, but it can be
unleashed! I'm looking forward to having another session."
