What past clients are saying:

“Thanks to Alison I now have the confidence to go out and enjoy my camera and the photo’s that I will be taking. I can now take my camera out of auto mode and dile up the right settings with assurance to get the better shot. Alison is an excellent tutor and I enjoyed the lesson immensely.”

“Your teaching style was easy to understand and friendly, and I loved that you took the time to look at everyone’s camera before class. The small class size was perfect and I felt like I got individual attention when I needed it. I FINALLY understand how to use the full manual setting (instead of AV or TV) and was able to get a GREAT shot of my daughter sleeping in her crib… in a very dimly-lit room!! I really enjoyed class and would recommend it to anyone with a dSLR that wants to learn how to use it to it’s full potential!”

“As a sort of primer on DSLR photography, I think you did a splendid job. It was basic enough, and yet I came away having learned so much. I now am not as scared of experimenting, as I was before the class. Loved the informal environment you created, and your interactive teaching style. I think I will definitely be in touch with you again, as I begin to expand my photography horizons. Thanks a bunch!”

“Great workshop, especially for beginners with little knowledge of the technical aspects of using the DSLR camera. Alison’s hands-on approach was so much easier to follow than reading the camera manual.”

“I just wanted to say that you taught me more about my camera than a 6 week course I took at our community college. I found your style of teaching to be to the point and easy to understand. I think the other course tried to cover too much. You hit right on the stuff that I had questions about. So I wanted to thank you!”
