Customer Testimonials:

I rented a lens for the class and was really glad I did -having the 150-600 zoom really made a difference. Thanks for a great experience—I feel a lot more confident with my camera since the class.

I REALLY like having the small class size of 12 people - that was beneficial in the field and during the critique
