Hidden Oaxaca Photography Tour

Oaxaca, Mexico

Experience hosted by Lizette

4 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

Oaxaca is filled with bountiful cultural treasures. But, some times you want to see the city through the eyes of a local. Someone with a keen eye.

You've come to the right place!

ITINERARY
First, we will meet at a cafe for introductions and coffee and an overview of how to best use your camera or just talk a bit about photograhpy.

Then, we will embark on our photography tour of the city -- on a curated walking lap around the city that will include some of my favorite "hidden gems" that this city has to offer -- street art, beautiful alleyways, panoramic views, and all the picturesque moments in between.

Finally, we will head to a cafe or cantina to share our favorite photos from the walk, which we will then print at a printing studio, or using some extended photography techniques that I can teach.

I'm very flexible and willing to create a bespoke itinerary that matches your interests and energy level and walking restrictions.
(Also - feel free to write me to my ig @eloisaflo if you want to go somewhere specific/ we can make an itinerary- also if you want a photo session).


The important part of the tour is that you feel comfortable using a camera to create more stunning images -- and you will get to take home a beautiful memento of your trip in the form of a printed photograph to hang on your wall at home. :)
Other things to note
Please bring comfortable walking shoes.

Hola! I'm Lizette. I'm from Oaxaca, I am a photographer and film producer.

I have studied photography in Xalapa and Oaxaca and for the past three years I am living here again to explore and know more about this diverse city.

For my photography, I like to explore many different locations in and around the city to find meaningful moments/people and to surprise myself.

Since I was young, I have always cherished the hidden treasures of this city. You can see more of my photos at: www.lizettemflores.com
or comissioned work and some portfolios at: https://issuu.com/heliotropoflores

Lizette is a very charming and genuine person. She loves photography and her beautiful home town, Oaxaca. We visited places that are not typical tourist spots and that interested me because I like to get off the beaten track and I had already spent three weeks photographing the obvious places. Lizette is anxious to please and is open to suggestions about what visitors would like to do. She can also help people improve their photographic technique if they would like some tips. It's a good idea to discuss what you're most interested in (e.g hidden places or the most photogenic locations, tips on composition etc. or simply a photo tour) before you begin because Lizette gladly caters to the wishes of visitors.

If you are expecting a photography tour to truly hidden places that you wouldn’t find on your own- this is not your trip. If you can be very very specific and clearly ask for assistance and locations-you may be satisfied. Lizette is qualified to provide this help. Some reviews are very positive, however this was not my experience. It was more of a walking tour to not at all hidden or stunning sites, and without photography tips. The description of the tour needs some revision for accuracy.

The experience was overall satisfactory...as in taking a walk across parts of the city that you would not walk yourself. This was more of a walk through the city tour, as opposed to being a photography improvement lecture tour. The title of the service ... should be changed to more of..."walking the city tour". I did enjoy our conversation as we walked the city. 🙂

Lizette is a lovely guide to Oaxaca. She is very patient and, upon meeting, she spends the time to know what you would like to do and see and then offers some suggestions that you can chose from. It’s great to have this flexibility. She goes over the settings of the camera as you need and as the lighting changes as you go along she can support your aesthetic choices throughout. She knows the streets of Oaxaca and the charming spots and even where the bathrooms are, helps with translations in any stores and is really kind and easy to get along.
