New Orleans FQF 2009-257.jpg


A photographic and musical journey!


New Orleans - a city of contrasts, music and cultures. Come with us on an unforgettable tour of the Big Easy, grab your cameras and experience jazz, Mardi Gras Indians and alligators up close.


Travel with us to the Big Easy and we'll show you more photo opportunities than you have space for on your memory cards. We'll take you on a trip to the alligators in the bayous, a guided tour of an old southern plantation or a riverboat shuffle on the Natchez. But you will also experience the flip side of this city full of contrasts: Poverty, gentrification and the after-effects Hurricane Katrina still has on this unique city today. A mecca for all photographers and music lovers - whether traditional jazz, funk, rock, gospel or blues.

Next tour dates:

26.03. to 03.04.2025 (waiting list only)

08.04. to 16.04.2026 (non-binding pre-registrations possible)

I usually receive the information about the flight schedule and the current travel price in late summer of the previous year. Only when you have this information do you have to book your trip.

Don't think of our trip as a "typical" group tour, more like a trip with friends. No meticulously planned daily routines and group-dynamic hand-holding, but activities and recommendations that you can do together as a group, but also on your own if you wish. New Orleans offers so many possibilities. I would be delighted to introduce you to this fascinating city.
