CourseCoverPhotos - Solitude

I’ve watched a lot of tutorials from great photographers, and most of them were not that good. They were not good teachers or they didn’t realize that what is obvious to them is not necessarily obvious to the one listening. And that’s what I loved about your tutorials. You’re very clear, you explain everything precisely and in details without forgetting to mention half of the steps. And you’re fun to listen to, which is always a good thing! So thank you and keep up with the good work!!

I have watched all but the Adobe raw video and they are awesome. I love your teaching style! They are are helpful for me, simple to follow, and I needed to brush up on my shortcut skills so the fact that you use them and mention them numerous times helps me to remember them. Your videos are all awesome.

Honestly, this is one of the best videos I’ve seen in a while (and there are a quite a few photographers uploading them these days). Very helpful. Love your enthusiasm. Keep it up!

Philip R.

Love your videos and looking forward to many more.  Great that you can explain complex concepts in relatively simple terms.  Shows understanding of your subject.

God knows, I have watched hours, days and weeks of photography tutorials but I have to say that your “it is that easy” style the most appealing to me! I hope you will go on with [making] videos. I really think this is your strength.

Kim M.

I love this video! There are so many videos [out there], but I realized why I like yours so much….you make it fun! I have yet to see one of your videos that  I didn’t say “oh” out loud. Keep them coming, but mainly, thanks for making them.

Marcy L.

This was extremely helpful. I am new to landscape photography and your comments, first of all, make sense and secondly, show me some details to consider when out taking landscape photos. Thank you.

Jim G.

Your video [Solitude] was full of very good instructions that will definitely benefit me in the post processing of my recent images up at the White Mountains.
