Spent a great day with Cat. We not only covered a greater part of Santiago’s photogenic areas, but we also reviewed both the technical and artistic sides of capturing an image. I recommend Cat to anyone looking to maximize their photographic time in Santiago.

Search for foto-rutta Santiago, but I doubt they'd have any schedule for November yet. You may email Cat to get more Info.
