A Fun, Approachable & Sublime Master of Photography!
The experience with Rudy exceeded all expectations. It was not just a marathon photo lesson, not just a “walk in the park,” not just a photo shoot. It was spending time being a fly on the wall, watching a master do his thing — getting in people’s faces, taking risks, warming up subjects so they agree to photos, catching them by surprise and then getting them in the palm of your hand. Concentration was on people/portraits, then on street scenes, then on capturing the beauty of a door or edifice. Willingly, Rudy shared hints about how to compose a riveting photo of a fashionable woman about to walk past him. What is amazing about Rudy is the extent to which he is willing to share his knowledge and his secrets (i.e. techniques he has honed over many years of professional photography). What’s more, he is warm and personable, as well as highly approachable. Plus, he’s ready to answer any questions, to comment (if you ask) on photos you’ve taken, and to offer suggestions, if you wish. If only there were a Rudy Giron in each magnificent or fascinating city around the world!

Amazing Photo Walking Tour of the Secrets of Antigua
Rudy Giron was truly exceptional in walking us around beautiful Antigua and helping point out photo opportunities, providing tips to improve photos, and gave us a handout on photo tips and encourages us with photo challenges as we enjoyed the culture of Antigua. We had a wonderful time and he really knew some hidden gems. We had some amazing experiences by taking this walking photo tour with Rudy. It was one of the highlights of the week for us. We invited him to lunch at the end of our tour and he graciously joined us at Sabe Rico (another great place to eat with organic foods grow on site and a garden setting). Rudy is full of knowledge, insights and alive go Guatemala. He offers several different tours and we will definitely be back for more walking photo tours with Rudy. Guatemala has a lot to offer and this was just one of the special experiences we had this week.
