Here is what one person said about my workshop.


Jeanne Burnham 


David is an excellent instructor - highly skilled, an outstanding communicator and very patient. I highly recommend anyone wanting to improve their photography skills would benefit from time with David. As an avid birder, it was very helpful to have an opportunity to get immediate feedback while adapting to various situations within this setting. We were very fortunate to have a day with lots of interesting sightings and various lighting conditions. I really appreciated the unique opportunity to try premium camera equipment too. I was having a lot of difficulty switching to an entry level DSLR camera, after using a point and shoot (often on auto 😊) for several years. David’s workshop has given me a much greater understanding of camera and lens features and helpful accessories. This very enjoyable and successful workshop has encouraged me to have confidence to take more control of the camera’s capabilities and enjoy the journey to improve my photography outcomes. I feel even if you are not a beginner like me, no doubt David’s expertise and tips will help improve your outcomes.
