"One of our most requested services is a guided PhotoWalk," says Chris. "A photowalk can be a super team building exercise as well as a photo teaching tool. It gets people out of the office to stretch their legs and their minds. It makes a great beginning or ending to a company meeting or conference." Ask how it works.
