I really enjoyed the class. Mark did a wonderful job explaining the how's and why's of taking good photos and was very patient and flexable to respond to the needs of the group. The small class format allowed him to move the entire class along at the pace necessary and nobody was left behind. Mark is very passionate about teaching photography. Strongly recommended!!

Mark is knowledgeable and able to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. He has experience in almost every aspect of photography and was been willing to create a seminar on a topic that I wanted to learn more about. Best of all, he clearly really loves both photography and teaching.

I took the Basic Photography Seminar on Saturday and it was an excellent class. Mark was a wonderful teacher and taught us all the basics. The class was balanced with learning techniques and jargon in the class and then we went out into the field to practice our methods. I learned quite a lot and now can apply the techniques for my job.

Mark was extremely personable and easy relatable. His quirky personality combined with his years of experience made the class a lot less intimidating. It was really great because we had such a small amount of people, we really got one-on-one time with him.

I have taken several classes (Intro to DSLR, Basic Workshop,Lightroom Basics) and each class was excellent in the content and context of what the class offered. Mark is a wonderful, personable instructor who gives full attention to details, is extremely knowledgeable in regard to all things photography and his takes his time with each student to make sure they understand the concepts he is teaching.

I would recommend his classes to anyone interested in furthering their knowledge in photography, whether you are a beginner or advanced in the field.

His work is really good, he is a good teacher as well.
