Your Photo Travel Guide

I can't thank you enough April for a truly enjoyable week. You had obviously spent a lot of time preparing the trip and it payed off. I learnt a good deal about perspective and exposure and am more confident in takings shots in low light stopping down. The whole week was so interesting and I will certainly consider another trip if the finances allow. (Australia is a tad far away)--

"You did an outstanding job and you really know your territory in New England"

"Yosemite 2011 was MAGICAL and I had a blast! Such great memories and laughter! I learned sooooo much from everyone! Thank you April! My husband could not believe all the beautiful photos I got...he was IMPRESSED! ;)"

- Sharon Lobel-Donaldson

"April is a photographer with a creative eye for composition and color.  Her photographs reflect her understanding of the use of light and shadow to produce images that beg to be framed and exhibited. She's an energetic, knowledgeable and fun person to shoot with in a photo trip."

            - Sol Avelino (Washington, DC)
New England Fall Foliage Trip

"The Yosemite Winter weekend was MAGICAL! An awesome group of girls and our guides were the BEST! They knew everything about Yosemite and all the right spots to help get that perfect image! Thank you to everyone that helped make this a perfect photo weekend! Wonderful company, great guiding and a lot of opportunity to learn photography from the leaders. The scenery was spectacular and lots and lots of time to try and get the perfect photo!"

- Catherine Moroney - Scientific Software engineer, Pasadena, CA

"Amazing, fun, smart, and the perfect way to get together with people who love photography. Wow how lucky I found April and Lori and through them my new friends...I can't wait for the next trip!"

- Nancy Amorteguy on Feb 5, 2011 -Ventura, CA

"April and Lori are two of the best photo guides that I have ever been on a trip with. They took me to spots I would have never been able to find and helped with any question I had. April and Lori made my dreams of photographing Yosemite come true."

- Jeanette White - Acton, CA

"Thanks again for a FANTASTIC and MAGICAL weekend in Yosemite. New horizons have opened for me... love it!"

- Diane Grupe Marshall - Frazier Park, CA

"Our Wildflower Adventure up in the mountains had all the excitement of a great scavenger hunt in search of beautiful photo opportunities!  Many "secret" locations were revealed along the way and we had freedom to roam around and explore our own perspectives, while still being within sight of the group. It seemed a new picture was always popping up around the next bend and we took time to include as many "STOP!...Gotta have it!" shots as would fit into the time schedule. Since my foot was in a walking cast at the time, it was particularly nice to be so be driven around and have extra assistance with my camera gear or pulled up an incline. Sure glad I didn't have to miss out on all the fun and wonderful pictures! The lunch spot had a cute cozy atmosphere and the barbecue was delicious!  Visiting the art gallery was an extra treat.  April and Lori made it a fun day for all."

- Christy Henry (Texas)

"The leaders efforts were excellent and tireless..."

 "The trip far exceeded my goals (photographically) I feel that I have more good useable images than I ever expected!"

"I have told my associates the trip was fantastic, with very many HIGH POINTS and NO low points, unless we talk about the one "highly recommended" breakfast stop in Maine."

"ACCOMMODATIONS were excellent in all aspects mentioned, we had no wasted time looking for lodging and then getting back on track for shooting the next morning etc. The costs were all in line with the market and chosen dates to be there."

- Milt (Los Angeles, CA)

Just had to write and thank you both for the marvelous time yesterday!  You made it so much fun, and Serena and I came home tired but happy.

I had more fun, and got more good images than I ever did going out with the big-buck tour folks (names un-named), and I made some new friends. Can't ask for more. Keep it going, you are really doing well.

"April is a brilliant photographer with an eye for creative shots. She was an enthusiastic, knowledgeable leader for our photo tour, and I wouldn't hesitate to take another tour with her. She does her homework with advance location scouting, so her locations deliver. What a fun day!!!"

April Bielefeldt
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree with a minor in Apparel Design from Iowa State University. I was raised in the Midwest but have lived in many parts of the United States. Being a child in the Midwest every aspect of life was an interaction with nature. Nature often dictated what you would wear that day and how you would go about your activities. Extremes of cold and snow to the heat and humidity of summer played a role in my respect and awe of nature, and is often represented in my art. I moved to the Southern California in 1997 and began showing my photos and paintings in shows and galleries. I have been leading small groups of photographers to New England each October for the past 5 years and sharing my award winning locations and hidden spots. I believe everyone is creative and take great joy in seeing what images they return with. I hope you'll join me. Follow me to FLICKR
