It was a great way to spend an afternoon!  I left actually being able to use my camera OFF the auto mode…your style of teaching works well for me. I was worried it would be too hard to grasp….you made it very entertaining and is evidenced by my photo of you “flying.” Even though the time flew by, it was so packed with information and practice and your valuable feedback so I could correct what I was doing wrong. I’m hoping you will be doing some additional classes soon. Thanks for a great experience – Ellen

Thanks again for the night photography session on Tuesday, it was just
great. I must say that as a beginner, I didn’t expect learning so
quickly and so easily in just 2 hours. Your creativity and personality
are definitely a plus. I used everything you taught me the day after and
it worked perfectly!  – Best, Bruno

The course was great and instruction was very clear. The only suggestion I have is that you make it clear on the website that students need to come with a camera that allows them to adjust ISO, aperature and shutter speed. Thanks for letting me borrow your camera!! Best regards – Anna

I found the workshop to be very informative and helpful. I enjoyed it very much! I’m very interested in taking the tech 2 class!  Thanks – Sabrina

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous experience! In the short time I learned so much about myself as an artist and the art of photography. Thanks! – Elizabeth

I took a tech class with Lorenzo, a fun guy who created great exercises to help understand what I find hard to grasp, thank you! – Sara

Didn’t think a tech class could also be inspiring. I really learned a lot, thanks. – Ellie
