This class on photography was amazing! I learned so much about how to work my camera better, technical aspects of settings, How to take a better picture, etc. Much more was learned that I expected. Donnie is a great teacher. He is able to teach the class, yet still have individual attention for each student. I hope for more classes taught by Donnie Pearson.

Donnie was great! I learned a lot. He took the time to help each of us with our individual cameras since we all had different ones. I only had an iPhone to take photos with and he was still super helpful with that. Great class!

I absolutely love Jade's teaching style! He was so patient with me and walked me through every necessary step. I felt as though I walked away from the workshop with a MUCH better understanding before walking in.

This was the first photography class that made any sense to me. His explanation about the camera and how it works was fantastic. I have taken many photography classes and this one was the best.

Things really click when Russ explains them. He has a way of making something that was previously confusing, finally totally clear. He makes himself available for further help. It was a spectacular class and I already signed up for another. I really can't say enough about Russ as an instructor; he's amazing.
