What do I need to bring to my photo tour ?
I recommend bringing a DSLR ( Canon or Nikon usually ) with one basic short zoom lens and one prime lens. Usually my recommended prime lens is a 50mm 1.8 lens.

About your head photo instructor & main tour guide
Elle Gamboa has been conducting the photo safaris and teaching the digital photography workshops in California since 2008. He also travels for photos assignments for international and US clients all over the world. Elle has a background in architecture, filmmaking, journalism, and painting. His other professional activities are web development using WordPress. His hands-on approach to teaching photography in a non-technical language to beginners makes him popular with his students.
This is a bit late, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for passing along your expertise to my parents onthe photo safari!
They had a wonderful time ,(they could not stop raving about how good you are!) and learned so much from you.
Thanks again, and have a great week!
While in San Diego I was able to take a few days with Elle and customize a photo tour of the entire area. Man, what an adventure. This guy is not only a great teaching photographer but a tour guide and restaurant expert all rolled into one. We took in the great San Diego Zoo, the Island, the Mission, the beach, Old Town and even had a night time course. Again..What an adventure, what a guy.
