"Mark is an excellent teacher!"
Mark is incredibly giving of his time and knowledge, and I learned a great deal from him—he helped me with concepts of composition and depth of field for better focus. I highly recommend Mark: he’s an excellent teacher and well worth spending time with him.
"Professional and perfect!"
We were visiting the Taos/Santa Fe area for the first time and wanted a chance to photograph areas we wouldn't be able to find by ourselves. Mark provided an entire day of wonderful photographic opportunities. From landscapes around the Rio Grande to areas around Ghost Ranch, Earthships to deserted shacks, churches to collections of roadside memorabilia. At each stop, Mark provided insight and knowledge about how to capture the moment. He was able to help all of us - from those with higher-end cameras, to me with a point-and-shoot, to the person drawing sketches. We couldn't have asked for more.
Photography from dawn to dusk
I spent two days touring with Mark Schumann to take landscape photographs around Santa Fe, Taos, the Rio Grande, Los Alamos and Ghost Ranch. We started at 5:00 the first day to get a sunrise near Los Alamos and finished with a stormy sunset on the second day. Mark is a good guide and coach, and I learned or refreshed a number of photography skills. The icing on the cake was an introduction to someone in Santa Fe who spent three hours with me using Photoshop and Lightroom to enhance some of the images I had taken over the two previous days. Excellent value and great fun.
