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

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
