An evening with Andrei “lurking” the streets of LA is a great way to spend your time, especially as a solo traveler. Andrei is a dynamic, passionate and communicative photographer/artist. His enthusiasm for photography and life, and intimate knowledge of the area, made the entire evening an enjoyable experience. While I may have envisioned taking more photos of downtown lights, instead I took fewer but learned and practiced new (to me) photographic techniques and skills (light painting, skyline at night, streaming traffic - under various conditions), for which I am grateful, and excited to use on my own in different environments. As an aside, I was concerned with arriving in LA at night by myself (solo woman traveler), having stayed in LA in the early 90’s for a work conference - and so I communicated my trepidations with Andrei before signing up. Andrei assured me that things had improved since my last visit, and not to worry about coming into the downtown area where we were to meet, and that there would be parking facilities close at hand to the meeting spot. I went with that, and was most happy with my decision. I highly recommend signing up!

Let me start by saying this was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in photography, urban hiking, or just wants to get out and do something different. Andrei is extremely knowledgeable about photography as well as downtown LA. I’ve lived in Los Angeles most of my adult life and still learned some interesting facts. In our group we had cameras ranging from expensive SLRs to iPhones. Each camera came out with Instagram worthy pictures. At any photography level you will come out with amazing picture and a great memory. A+ would do it again.

I had a great outing with Andrei and the others. We made photos in a couple places in DTLA that I never would have known about or had access to. Andrei also taught us about manual shooting on our cameras and treated us to a tasty dinner. Many thanks!
