Tours by a Local

Kerinia Cusick lives in Old Town Alexandria and is constantly exploring the town with her trusted four-legged walking partner, MacBae, a Westie.  In Old Town since 2002, she is steeped in the town's history, knows every back alley, restaurant and shop.  

Kerinia carefully researches each tour to find personal and insightful stories about the Alexandrians who shaped US history and recounts history in short snippets, linking one story to the next. 

Experienced Photographer & Instructor

Kerinia fell in love with photography in her early teens and learned on her Dad's Leica SLR. She's owned nearly a dozen cameras and has spent thousands of hours honing her skills through classes, international photo safaris, photo walks, art shows and portfolio reviews. Kerinia has direct experience with all of the major camera brands - including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Samsung - both DSLR and Mirrorless cameras.  

Kerinia has nearly a decade of experience teaching, and specializes in taking complicated concepts and breaking them into bite-sized, easy to remember, information chunks. She’s used this approach to teach engineering standards, sales skills, and photography. Her approach to teaching photography is different than most. Instead of teaching you camera features, she'll teach you how to take better photos. 

A firm believer in “the best camera is the one you have with you” philosophy, Kerinia encourages people to bring their smart phones and will suggest a few apps that will improve your enjoyment. 

Kerinia grew up with large hunting dogs and developed some "dog-whispering" skills at an early age.  As a dog-owner in Alexandria, she can help you figure out how to optimize your time in town with your four-legged friend in tow.
