The Canadian Contingency!

I adore all my clients but as a proud Canadian, I do have a soft spot for my countrymen (and women!). Ed and Marilyn booked a tour with me and I showed them my old neighbourhood, Villa Crespo, one of my favourite spots to tour. As we chatted about The Homeland and I chatted with my pals I haven't seen for a while, Marilyn took these amazing shots with her DSLR. At the start of the tour we talked about strengths and stuff that could be improved. She said she was feeling less than confident about her creative photo skills. Well, Marilyn! You need not worry anymore! Check out her wonderful photos using interesting angles, shapes and lines and the key to everything: SIMPLICITY!

So great to have you both on a tour, you made my week!

Today, Asia from Poland came on my tour. I'm not going to say much because the images speak for themselves (AMAMAMAMAAAAZING!!). What I am going to say, is that she taught me today. It was a beautiful thing and refreshing as I am usually the teacher. I'm all about learning and Asia taught me a different way of looking at the world. Simple. Mostly Black and White. Kinda like how life should be? I have been feeling a bit of a creative funk lately and this has helped me see the light. Big time.

We have decided to hang out and shoot together more. Next time, we are going to try to swap creative styles. She shoots like I do, and I shoot like she does. I am overly excited about this.

Follow her on Instagram at ASIAPIECYK hey! Follow ME on Instagram too AmeliaMcFoto

Check out her work and if you want me to show the cool places to shoot in Buenos Aires, hit me up. Maybe you can teach me something too!

Zach's Solid GOLD Street Photography

While I was out of the country, Zach booked a 4 day custom tour with my amazing assistant, Paloma. I was not-so-secretly jealous that I was away and couldn't tour with Zach myself. It sounded like they had the best photo times together in some of the coolest spots in Buenos Aires and beyond. They hit up Chacarita Cemetery, San Telmo, Palacio Barolo (for that great aerial shot of Congresso), Tigre and The Delta, Feria de Mataderos (I highly recommend this market!) and a quick side trip outside of the city to a day long Estancia outing. Whew! They packed it in an check out the SOLID GOLD shots that Zach captured.

I'm in love with these images. Easily some of the best I have seen from a client. The lighting perfection, composition king, the sense of place, the leading lines, the candid captures. Love it love it LOVE IT! Beautiful simplicity, friends and fellow photographer take note. Simplicity and stillness always wins.

I hope these wonderful images have inspired you to have a look through your own lens a little differently. Novice and professionals alike. You should never stop learning and Zach shots are a great teaching tool. Amazing work.

We can take you to see these places. We can improve your skills or hone your existing talents. Book a custom tour and Argentina is your oyster. BOOK NOW!

Kunlun Kills It!

It has been a rainy winter here in Buenos Aires not always the best for wandering the streets. But Kunlun and my wonderful assistant, Paloma, set out to brave the elements and were rewarded with some excellent images.

They covered some serious ground from the beautiful bookstore, El Ateneo to Recoleta Cemetery and on to San Telmo. Proving that there are great things to be seen and discovered inside as well as outside.

I love Kunlun's eye for composition and capturing a moment. He also understood the concept always keeping your eyes peeled and to think creatively while shooting. I'm always begging my clients to not just look forward, but to look around and LOOK UP! Who knows what's going on up there and sometimes you can be rewarded.

Like these shots and want to book a tour with us?  Contact Amelia and she can put together something amazing to compliment your shooting style and skill level.


Deanna Double Touring

Deanna has some serious potential to be a wonderful photographer! She started off with an iPhone tour of Palermo and loved the experience so much she booked a group tour as well!

Although portraiture is her 'thing' (I hear ya, girl!), she took some pretty sweet still life and city-scape shots on her tours as well. To top it all off, she's a pretty cool chic and I loved our post tour chats over a beverage. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I DO have the best clients ever!!
