Love your teaching style. I’ve learned alot from online sessions lately and can’t wait to get into the field with you! Beth D.

Thank you again for a wonderful photographic adventure.  Your positive, cheerful attitude and infectious enthusiasm for photography affected the whole group.  We all had a good time together. They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but this old dog learned a lot – so much that I had to make a list of “lessons learned” in my notebook to make sure that I do not forget.  

I’m eagerly looking forward to our next adventure.” Jim M.

“Thank you so much for an excellent session, and overall conference as well!” Cindy S.
