Brad is an extraordinary instructor he has immense patience and remarkable depth of experience. He has taken impossible projects and taught me how to turn them into gold. He has also expanded my understanding of the incredible options to take good shots into outstanding shots with simple tools and techniques in post processing that I never realized were available. Great experience that I plan to continue.

Brad is just a great instructor who is very effective at using technology to make the experience extremely easy and very productive. I wasn't sure how photography and light room lessons were going to work in the environment but it has been a great experience with just my first couple of lessons.
I wanted to learn how to make subtle adjustments to some of my favorite photos to bring out the detail and highlights that made the shot a favorite. Brad quickly walked me through seemingly complex edits which were very easy to learn and made my pictures really pop.
I love landscapes and animals and have fallen in love with past shots that I did not realize could be such improved pictures with just a little help from Lightroom.
Well worth the investment and I have received countless complements already on my new work.

Thanks Brad for taking me to the next level of enjoyment and satisfaction with a personal passion of mine.

Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.

Blake is a great teacher. He made me so determined to learn more and to get better in my craft. I started to become excited and always looked forward till our next lesson because I knew I would come out knowing way more than I did before. If you are unsure and/or new to this, I would 100% recommend Blake!

Blake is kind and courteous and the lessons were individualized and geared to meet my needs. Blake met my expectations in teaching the functionality of a new program, and he gave me guidance designing. The lessons are easy to schedule and cancel if necessary.
