What others are saying about the tours and workshops:

“Brenda is a wonderful teacher and leader and I’ve never traveled with anyone who was more capable or inspiring as a leader, photographer, and instructor. And a completely lovely and fun person, as well.”   M. Brisson, Cuba 2014

“A quick note to thank you kindly for your precious time and sharing your knowledge & inspiration with the photo club on Kiawah Island…your encouragement and wisdom give me much to look forward as I enjoy a ride along this fun road of photography!” Dianne S., SC

“Thanks for a fab week. I look forward to booking other trips with you.” Les G., Scotland, 2011 Oregon Coast Tour

“It was so terrific to work with you in San Cristobal.   I learned a great deal and so enjoyed getting to know you.  You really helped to sharpen my eye.” Susan B., FL, – San Cristobal, Mexico Dream Team Tour 2011

“Brenda and Jed adjusted their teaching skills to meet the needs and desires of all the participants and made us all feel like family.  I have made many friends traveling with them and plan to make more in the future. Traveling with Brenda and Jed, you could really feel their enthusiasm for both Italy and photography.   I hope to travel with them again frequently in the future!” Alan G., CA, Tuscany, Italy Photo Tour 2010

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Glacier Bay trip. The combination of ‘adventure travel’, great photography opportunities and your teaching, and the quality of the people made it a really exceptional experience.” Stu K., CA, Glacier Bay Photo Tour 2010.

“A magnificent learning experience Brenda- thank you so much. I couldn’t have wished for better. Your assignments have been challenging (oh yes!), your lesson notes helpful but not restrictive and your critiques have been the real gem of the course. Your approach is plain, to the point and constructive. I suppose most of us like a bit of  flattery, but can only really learn from recognition by someone like yourself of what has real merit and what and why something really doesn’t work! That’s what you give Brenda, all wrapped up with nice touches of kindness and humour. Thanks a million and best wishes in all that you do.” Gina

“What was the highlight of our trip? Brenda – she was great. Efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, continually involved with all of us.” R. Pool, Ireland Tour.

“I wanted to thank you for your on line workshops, your books and the workshop I attended in the field. Everything I learned from you resulted in First Place in the Ansel Adams Gallery Photo Contest, among others.” Jeffrey G.

“I just thought I would let you know I have been doing (since you were a big part of making this happen).. I am volunteering as a photographer for Missouri Botanical Garden and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.   My photos are on all the membership materials for MoBot this year and one is on the cover of the current member magazine.  For CBSTL, I have done the photos for two books, two calendars, and will soon have my photos featured in a huge display at Lambert Airport.” Mary Lou Olson.

“Thanks for your skills, knowledge, dedication, and especially your unselfish sharing of talents and time. I would recommend this course and any other you teach to my friends.” William C.

“If your goal is to really get serious about your photography and you are ready to work hard, Brenda is an amazing teacher! Brenda creates an environment that is friendly and truly inspirational.” Irene C. Troy, online student.

“The class was tremendously fun and joyful, as well as educational… Brenda is a delightful person – high energy, very patient, a superb photographer- with a genuine interest in sharing her understanding of how to create an artistic image.” K. Simon, Santa Fe Workshop.

“Brenda is not only a great photographer, she is a great teacher…She opened up my eyes to a whole new world of photography, and I can’t wait to get out there and practice.” Shelly Loree.
