Testimonials

John & Michelle "Thanks again for taking Michelle and I out a few weeks ago, even if the weather wasn't the best that day. We both had a great time and good some good shots. I think Michelle was inspired to really learn more about her camera and start using it to it's potential. We both learned a ton of things and I think it's kick-stared our interest in photography again. I had forgotten how simple it is really. It can be so overwhelming when you get bogged down in all the technical stuff without realizing it's all in the head. Once you've mastered a few basics the picture is made before you even pick up the camera
