Crystal Cruises Offers Master Photographers for Guest Portraits

Crystal Cruises is featuring Master Photographers to shoot guest portraits on eleven 2012 sailings. "The Master Collection" line-up consists of professional portrait photographers who have the distinction of being Fellows of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and the Master Photographers Association.

Travelers can arrange private photography sessions aboard Crystal Symphony or Crystal Serenity.  Individuals, couples, or families and groups can opt for different wardrobe, locations and activities to customize their shoots.
