What do people think about our workshops?

Here's a sample of the type of email we received from our participants:

"Among a"Among all the pros from whom I've tried to learn, you were all alone as the very best"

"Thanks again for a wonderful trip, I learned a lot from you and really enjoyed your insight."

"I don't know when I've learned so much and had such an enjoyable and satisfying experience."

"Many thanks again for a great workshop. " />
"I learned so much on that trip to Joshua Tree. Thank you for all that great advice."

"Thanks again for providing such terrific photographic opportunities as well as the invaluable training."

"Fantastic workshop - I can't believe what I didn't know!"

"Thanks for a terrific workshop and the various materials you gave us.  Most of all, thank you for teaching -- by example, not in a [boring] way -- thinking "outside the box" regarding subject matter, composition and use of light.  A workshop should be fun.  Yours got an A+ there.  A workshop should leave a participant with comfort with at least one "how to" that was not comfortable before.  Another A+, and this one for multiple techniques and approaches."
