  • "Whether you're looking for some help to improve your photographs or just want to ensure you have some nice pictures of Chamonix to take home, a half-day lesson with Teresa is a great idea. She's kooky, easy going, offers guidance without being dogmatic and is just a fun companion for a few hours." - Trip Advisor
  • "I recently took a photography class/walking tour with Teresa through Vallorcine, France, because I wanted to brush up on my photography skills. I certainly got that -- and more. Our tour started in Chamonix's farmers' market, and I jokingly referred to her as the "Mayor of Chamonix", because everyone came up to say hello to her! I learned so much about photography in that first 30 minutes. She immediately reconfigured my camera settings in a way that made complete sense. Why didn't I think of that? In addition to figuring out the right exposure, she talked a lot about the importance of framing. We discussed how to tell a complete story through a series of photos. And she really opened my eyes to the art of anticipation; learning to observe your subject and take the photo a split second before the perfect moment occurs. Later, on our drive to Vallorcine, she regaled me with stories about Chamonix's history, both past and present. What a talented storyteller she is! Even though I had already been here a week, her vast knowledge of the area really filled in the gaps between being a tourist and really "knowing" a place. Our walk through Vallorcine was amazing. Once again, it seemed Teresa knew everyone and that gave us access to all kinds of people and situations that I would've been too shy to seek out myself. What I love about Teresa is her ability to adapt to whatever comes up. We spent a long time photographing a group of boys we came across doing jumps on their bikes. Then we just happened upon a herd of fighting cows, and Teresa matter-of-factly marched right through them. No big deal! The whole day was an adventure like that. I highly recommend Teresa's tours, whether you're looking to learn more about photography OR if you just want to learn more about Chamonix. It was truly a unique and memorable experience, and I left wishing there were Teresa Kaufman's in every corner of the planet. Thank you!!" - Trip Advisor
