⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michael is an awesome teacher! If you are just getting into photography I would very highly recommend his classes. He makes everything so easy to understand. I took class 1 and 2 this past weekend and I am now shooting in manual mode. I of course need to practice and perfect my skills but I now know what it takes to create a better photo. Can’t wait to take class 3!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fabulous instructor! I took Michael’s Beginner PART 1 and Beginner PART 2 class last weekend. I went from using automatic modes to shooting on manual in 3 hours! The course is set up perfectly - theory first then you put it in action. I’ve already signed up for my next class PART 3!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michael’s 3-hour ( a 1 to 1 Private Class ) Introduction to flash was extremely helpful. He did a very good job of explaining the technical aspects of flash photography while using test shots to show examples of good and bad flash photo work. Now it’s time to learn more by doing and hopefully return for some more classwork in the near future. Thanks, Michael!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’ve been taking photos professionally for 5 years now for my job as a product photographer, but as it turned out, there was a ton that I didn’t know about (lighting techniques, camera settings, gear, etc.). It’s easy to get into a slump with your photography, always resorting to same old tried-and-true methods. This class definitely reenergized me to spice up my shots.
— Rob Detric
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michael is very passionate about photography. His knowledge of lighting and technique is obvious. He is very thorough when explaining and teaching a process.

Thanks again, look forward to signing up for another class or two in the future.
