Photography is a Journey, and New Orleans is definitely one of those places that offer a Plethora of Interesting things to Photograph based on the rich histories and cultures New Orleans has to offer as outlined abobve. New Orleans has maintained it's historic feel and offers a very colorful Palette for those interested in creating beautiful images.

We have been shooting New Orleans and it's sights for over 23 years and know where and how to shoot the wonderful things New Orleans has to offer. If you want to see and shoot without the hassle of the crowds and have an Authentic New Orleans Experience, either Traditionally, Urban or both - this Workshop/Tour is for you...

The French Quarter - New Orleans Workshop

The New Orleans French Quarter is one of the Most Colorful places to photograph rich with history and culture at the heart of New Orleans.

From the beautiful streets of the French Quarter to the historic Balconies, laden with beautiful iron works and Gas Light torches that light the way; the gorgeous courtyards and splendid gardens; to the mysterious aura at night that surrounds Bourbon Street, Royal Street, from Canal to Esplanade Avenue...

Night or day seeing all the sights, sounds, and tasting the local flavor that New Orleans has to offer one can create some really beautiful images while using the New Orleans French Quarter as the subject.

Photographing People to Architecture the subject range is great. We focus on different spots/areas in the French Quarter that will get your creative juices flowing.

This is a flexible Workshop that works around your stay in New Orleans.

Bayou Photography Workshops

The beauty of the Bayou will be seen in this workshop. We travel into the Louisiana Swamps and Bayous with an experienced  Captain and guide on his boat.  This is quite the adventure. If you like Landscape Photography this workshop offers great opportunity.

We motor off into the Bayous where our guide brings us to some of the prime Bayou Areas,  showing Cypress Knees, Hanging Moss Trees, Gators, Swamps, Louisiana Nature, and it's various animals and Birds. If you like bird Photography some days we can find many birds, like Egrets and the Great Blue Heron. Gators? We see Gators and can get some great photographs of Alligators, for sure.

We visit  fishing areas, Old Grave Yards and see some of the locals discussing the catch of the day... Vicki Stanwycks assists and teaches how to create images of the New Orleans Bayou Landscape, Gators, Hanging Moss Cypress Trees, People, and Graveyards. This workshop offers a glimpse into the Cajun Lifestyle and it's people and the Beautiful Landscape as only seen by boat.

New Orleans really comes alive at night. Shooting at night vs during the day are 2 different visuals.

See the sights and sounds of the French Quarter, the Marigny, Local color,  neon lights, and the streets of the French Quarter.

Most Popular New Orleans Areas

New Orleans Garden District

New Orleans is known for it's historical homes especially in the Garden District area. The Architecture Styles of New Orleans  are rooted in the Garden District including The Famous Author, Ann Rice, "Interview with a Vampire."

The Historic homes that can be seen and photographed are a taste of history as beautiful and as colorful as ever, including the beautiful styled Iron Fences -  huge Oak Trees that line the New Orleans streets as an example.

We can see one of the famous cemeteries as shot in the TV Series CSI New Orleans. The history and images to be gotten are a part of the

New Orleans history you don't want to miss.   See the street cars that run along St. Charles Ave and explore the Avenues,  the Boutique areas of Magazine Street... A very interesting Part of New Orleans Culture for sure.

The Uptown Areas of New Orleans

Much to see in the Uptown areas of New Orleans. We will start exploring some of Southern Architecture and large structural frontal Columned homes, including architecture along Prytania and St. Charles Avenue's.

We venture off into the  University areas showing the colleges nestled in the uptown parts of town, including the famous Audubon Park & some of it's attractions, Oak Trees & bronze statues.

Then off to photograph some of the areas that some of the locals see and do - perhaps a little differently than the tourist areas of town...

Where ever we go in New Orleans it's filled with color and culture unlike anywhere else  in the country.

The Downtown Fauberg Marigny Areas

We go and explore the Marigny areas of New Orleans which are just below the French Quarter where you can see a different side of New Orleans History as a work in progress.

Many artists live in the Marigny areas. NOCCA a famous arts school for high school students is housed in this area, offering much inspiration for students.

Sometimes a New Orleans Brass Band can be seen performing on the streets of the Marigny. We also explore the Esplanade Ave. and it's architecture and color...

Venture into parts of Treme and off to some of the older parts of town featuring a different cultural experience.

The Famous New Orleans Cities of the Dead

One could spend days photographing in the New Orleans cemeteries. There are many cemeteries in New Orleans and we focus on the most interesting ones for photography.

As New Orleans is only 8 feet above Sea Level Tombs need to be above ground.

These historical structures and statues make for some very beautiful imagery, colorful and monotone photography. We start in the Garden District seeing one of the most widely filmed Cemeteries to the TV and in the Movie industry. You will see different styled historical tombs.

Then we venture off to several Areas featuring these interesting historical Grave areas which houses some very beautiful Statues. New Orleans cemeteries are huge, historical and offer a taste of history you won't find anywhere else.

What Other Are Saying

"Fantastic Headshots for my office. They set up a studio at our location and everyone got photographed and looked great.  Then we shot some images around areas of our office with the staff, including the Board Room, the lobby, some of the attorney's offices, etc. We wanted our website to reflect our People and our work place. Vicki did it,  and we looked professional and the office shots reflected who we are and our professionalism. Within a few days we had our images, and off they went to our Web Designer. Very Pleased!"  -Lauri Baker

" We have been working with Stanwycks photography for about 8 years now. We send all of our New Hires to Vicki for their Executive Portrait Session's. We use these images on the web and for various things we need Headshot's for.  Vicki makes it simple for us. I would  highly recommend Stanwycks Photography to any Corporate firm. She really has made it seamless for us."  - Cheryl Landsman

"So we wanted something different for our Executive's. We didn't want the same type of looks. We had Vicki do some in her studio against different backgrounds with a few of our people. She tried a Green Screen, we shot against white, and we also went to a few locations around our office, outside. The green screen we used two different backgrounds that were dropped in later - some very contemporary looks. The ones against white were clean - light and airy, and the ones outside were great. We couldn't decide. We chose different one's for different things and we use these Pictures all the time. It's good when you like more than few and want them all. And to top it off, Vicki and her assistant's are really very nice and fun to work with."  -Jennifer Bordelon
