Well organized and thorough presentation including written manual. Instructors have a long and rich background not only their photographic craft but in the evolution camera technology/features. They showed a constant strong care factor every student in the class, making sure everyone in the group was not left behind even though there was a wide range of experience levels and camera makes/styles.

David & Ally are fantastic instructors. Not only are they masters of their craft, they are masters at instilling confidence and enthusiasm in their students through instruction in a fun and supportive environment. I've hesitated moving from Auto mode to Manual mode on my DSLR, but after taking the beginning class and learning so much about the mechanics of the camera and lens, the various settings and how all of this affects exposure, I now have the confidence to shoot in Manual. Highly recommend their classes!
