St Lucia Photography Ambassador Wins Big
Renowned St Lucia Photographer, Kirk Elliott has won his second Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in as many years. Elliott conducts the popular St Lucia Photo Tour and judging from the reviews visitors are leaving on Trip Advisor. The tour appears to have struck a chord with photo enthusiasts as well as vacationers just wishing to experience an authentic Saint Lucian cultural immersion.
“Clients are contacting me as early as a year ahead of their vacation and over this period I help them gain a unique insight into Destination St Lucia” Elliott explained. “Then their cultural immersion is deepened when they finally experience the Photo Tour.”
The St Lucia Photo Tour is about so much more than just photography, as Elliott deconstructs the artistry behind a great photograph; from the technical as well as the emotional standpoints. He then invites his guests to interact with fishermen, bringing in their catch, locals in the heat of a domino game, or any other of the many day-to-day local activities. Elliott facilitates an interaction between visitors and residents that help them get a better understanding and appreciation of one another.
Elliott has found that “visitors are researching their destinations long before they travel” and he is constantly amazed at how much they know about St Lucia before they arrive. For this reason he believes that, St Lucia is best served by a fresh new set of excursions centered around local experiences that are not just eco-friendly, but also clearly demonstrate sustainable tourism development as well as capacity building among locals. “Visitors consistently comment that they intentionally seek out independently promoted excursions.”
Elliott wishes to congratulate all of the businesses in Saint Lucia that won Trip Advisor Certificates of Excellence, and to encourage those who didn’t win this year to continue striving for excellence, as this will set Destination, St Lucia, apart in the tourism marketplace.
