Business of Photography - Participant comments

I just wanted to thank you again for all of the information that you shared with us in class. I have been trying to find someone who would give me insight into the real world of professional photography. Your class was exactly what I was looking for. The workbook is very good - I will have to work my way through it. I hope to take some more of your classes or go to some of your workshops very soon. Thanks again for info. --Stan.... / Business of Photography

Thanks again...I very much enjoyed my two days of photographic immersion. You are so incredibly knowledgeable. One of my prior co- workers asked how your seminar was. I told her to imagine my explaining our business in two days. ..ha! She quickly understood. The amount of information to process is mammoth, but then...I have always known that. I want to do this...thank you for helping get me started. And...just for the record...I have travelled too!! HA! Hope to see you again soon in another workshop or other photographic arena. --Judy.... / Business of Photography

First, let me start by saying that the seminar over the weekend was chock full o' information I had never even considered as becoming a professional photographer. Your insight into the business and your completely open and honest explanation was absolutely well receipted and appreciated by those in the class. It was a truly enjoyable session and your no-non-sense approach to teaching, which is much like my approach, was refreshing, engaging, and all around FUN! I feel quite honored and lucky to have met such a well-respected and successful professional as yourself. I do look forward to fostering a closer personal and professional relationship with you. --Heather .... / Business of Photography

I wanted to thank you for an absolutely brilliant seminar this weekend. I have a great appreciation and respect for an instructor that comes to class with a well-defined outline of topics to cover. And to have the instructor follow that outline with such ease definitely attests to the vast expertise you have. I also appreciate your openness to sharing resources. This is one of the best seminars I have attended and certainly the one that I have gained the most information from. I still cannot believe how much information you covered in two days. --Donna .... / Business of Photography
