What Our Graduates are Saying about the Training

“This was a amazing. I learned years’ worth of self-taught experience in a weeks’ time. I highly recommend this to anyone at any level of your photographic journey.” – David Oldeen

“This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in photography – ever! I fell in love with taking pictures again. I have participated in other photography trainings, and can honestly say there is no comparison.” – Steve Fowler

“I experienced all new ways of seeing. If you’re a photographer of any skill level who wants to work with models this training is an absolute must do.” – Brian Shepherd

“I am more deliberate in my process, spending more time before a shoot thinking about what I want and how I intend to accomplish it.  I found several great models via with the process you described – by asking the model strategic questions up front.  This helped me assess the models on a different level and, frankly, made it easier for the models to see that I am more serious than just an “old guy with a camera”.  I never would have imagined that this process would be a way to seek out and hire models! It has been worth every penny and without question, has made a meaningful impact in my work.” – Dan Katz
