Daniel is an excellent teacher. He was able to break down the complicated subject of flash photography in a way that was easy to understand and then implement.

He offered suggestions on products that I needed and even gave a follow up with links to those items. My product shots for my business are looking much better and now I don't have to rely on natural light!

Daniel has extensive photography knowledge and his love for the craft is quickly obvious. I plan to continue to work with him and would highly recommend him to others.

Daniel was AMAZING. Not only did he teach me the basics on photography but he knew I was more of a "hands on/in the moment" type of student so he asked me to do his family portraits. Daniel was always listening to the small, but important photography objectives I wanted to accomplish. During the session he taught me how to shoot into the sunset (something I always wanted to do) and he let me use all kinds of equipment. He was so patient with me during the whole process and even let me add my own personal creative side. If you are looking for a fun, down to earth and VERY KNOWLEGABLE teacher to help you, Daniel is your guy! 10 STARS!
