"I am blessed and truly thankful to continue to have the opportunity to learn from Chris. He is unwaveringly supportive and inspirational, giving me confidence to take my photography to higher levels. I often look to him for advice and a clear perspective.  He always gets me thinking “what if?,” and knows how to tap into my creative side—which I appreciate in an instructor. I look forward to many more years as his student and friend, to learning new skills, and to gaining additional insights from discussing his perspective about angles, portraits, lighting and Photoshop. Thanks again Chris, for sharing your passion and love of photography, and technical, artistic, and teaching skills with me. And, thank you for believing in and inspiring me." - Chris Carrion

Chris, As an aspiring photographer I am simply amazed by the level of your instruction and your ability to connect with students. You bring the process of learning to life and articulate it in a way that anyone can understand. You are a wealth of knowledge and your love for photography is obvious as it shines through in your instruction. Thank you for being such a supportive and wonderful mentor. You are one of a kind. - Roy

Hi Chris, I have watched videos and read manuals but you made learning my particular camera incredibly easy. I appreciate the notes you gave me to reference and I can say that after the one lesson I will be taking quality pictures going forward. I will be practicing and applying what I learned and hope to meet up in the spring to photograph some new locations.Thanks again, -Scott

Chris, I can honestly say I learned more from you in two hours then I have in the past seven years reading and watching videos. Not only do you know your stuff, you also know how to convey it in an understandable and useful way.  - Rich

Hi, Chris, I really enjoyed the session and learned so much, thank you! I get things the way you explain them. It was an awesome learning experience. - Lori

Hi Chris,  Thank you for meeting us in the park! We both had a great time and are now very excited about using the camera on our holiday. - Geoff & Elena

Chris, Last night was a great shoot, you're really making digital photography a lot of fun for me.  I attached one of the action shots… I think it's one of the best pictures I have taken so far with the camera.   - John

Chris - You are an amazing instructor and I really learned a tremendous amount from your lesson.  I can't even begin to express my gratitude.  I am amazed every time that I look at the pictures we took. - Roy

Hi Chris! Thanks so much for the great lesson today. I really like the iPad presentation. Really solidifies some concepts we were talking about.  Cheers and thanks again. - Nancy

Dear Chris, It has been really a pleasure working with you. Thanks for the wonderful information.  I cant wait to go back home and show off ;)  Hope to see you soon.  - Dalal

Hello Chris, Like to thank you for a awesome day out and great tips.  I've been practicing my metering and compositions. Thank you. - Henoch

Hi Chris, I greatly appreciated everything that you taught me for a couple of reasons.  First, I will be able to capture many timeless moments of my family in a way that I have always longed for.  Secondly, I've always had a creative side of me that has been searching for a way to best express itself.  The camera felt like the artistic tool that would be perfect only I wasn't sure and had doubts when I first got it and experimented on my own.  But with your masterful instruction, I realize that it's exactly what I've been looking for.  With your help I have actualized a creative avenue that may not have otherwise been realized.  So thank you for doing what you do.  I look forward taking better and better pictures with time.  Sincerely, Jeannette

Hey Chris, Thank you again for all your help. I learned a lot, and I can't wait to start practicing taking pictures this weekend. - Talk soon, Marvin

I had the pleasure of a private photo lesson with Chris last Friday. I seriously learned so much more in two hours than i ever did before. He is so knowledgeable and patient. He made it easy for me to understand the settings and the the capabilities of my camera. I have a long way to go but i have a much better understanding of my camera and the basics. Two hours flew by but i learned so many techniques to help make my photos more interesting.
Thank you Chris for your time and patience. I've been practicing all weekend. Can't wait to take another one of your workshops!!! - Wendy
