This is your opportunity to make action and event photographs with a Second Line Band through the steamy French Quarter. Dine on amazing Creole cooking in a historic restaurant. Have plenty of napkins ready while you eat a po’boy from a great local dive. In both locations, learn the ins and outs of food photography. Be front row as jazz fills the air in a night club, a Sazerac waiting for you on the bar while you’re making music photos of the band. Spark your creativity shooting street photography with historic New Orleans as the background as a local historian explains its rich history. Create portraits of a local model in one of the cities iconic locations.
Photographers and instructors Freddy Clark and Lyn Morton will be there to guide you every step of the way while you’re creating photography in street, cityscape, food, music and portraiture. This experience is also more than photography. Along the way you’ll get a real feel for the city — it’s people, culture, food and music — from people who truly love the city.

Freddy Clark, Sante Photo
Freddy Clark’s career took a couple of twists and turns before becoming a Beverage and Food Photographer. Out of college, he started working in radio as an On-Air DJ and Production Director, moving between a couple of rock stations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. After a decade working full time in radio, he felt it was time for a change and started on a path in technology.
Photography got in his blood when his daughter was born. Wanting to learn more and more, he began reading, studying the work of others, and attending workshops.
Like many, he started dabbling in a lot of different photography pursuits, portraits, street, and landscapes. After spending a couple of years shooting weddings for other studios, he was asked if he would do some food shots for a local restaurant and found his calling.
Because he was into craft beer, one rainy day, he started photographing some bottles in his garage, and the way forward was clear to him. Now he works for Beverage Brands and restaurants as the photographer of Santé Beverage & Food Photography. He teaches workshops on photography for Canon, Visions Workshops and independently.
