How close have you ever been to alligator? Do you know the difference between a Crocodile or an Alligator? See the wildlife and vegetation of the Swamps... It's like no place you have ever been. 

"This Summer I was in one area of the Swamp on an Airboat and passing through one of the narrow Bayous to get to the more Open Bird Areas, it was like being in Disney World. It was so beautiful seeing the hanging moss. All we could hear were the birds. It was like no place I had ever Been." - Vicki Stanwycks

For Beginners, Intermediate and seasoned shooters...

  • Are you coming to New Orleans for a vacation or a convention?
  • Spend a day visiting the Louisiana Bayous.
  • Day or Weekend Workshops

We offer various workshops throughout the year and cover many topics. The Louisiana Swamp tours are one of our most popular photography trips as folks love to see the magic of the bayou. From sunrise to Sundown - even I the rain it's very different kind of beauty, all it's own.

Call us today to see if we have an ongoing workshop at this time or we can work with you individually to help you find your inner photographer, who can make images anywhere and fast.

**Keep in mind what you should bring is what you would travel with traditionally. If traveling I like to travel keeping in mind to keep things as simple and as light as possible to keep fatigue at a minimum.

We also can go into the deeper southern Bayous in the Atchafalaya Rive Basin as well. When you call we discuss the options and you can expect, between our Instructors and Guides.

Using Your Camera to Tell Stories...

Photography in general alludes to fun and excitement. Photography also brings one to many places both in your minds eye and in the actual photograph. We travel to exotic places with the idea in mind to create equally exotic Photographs. We are travelers, we are adventure seekers and we want to see and do more and capture it through our cameras.

 

However if we don't know how to do it well, take Photographs... all that excitement dies fast when our Photographs don't look like what we felt and saw when we look at them. Good Photography creates a feeling and better photography get us excited. The old cliché that;

"A picture is worth a thousand Words!"

It's true... I would like to think and hope that some images are worth more words and some Photographs do all the talking. Wouldn't you like to be that Creator? Wouldn't you like to create pictures that speak to your viewing audience?

 

Take the first step with us at Stanwycks Photography and we will get you on that path today. We will help you understand photography and it's language so much better. You will see!
