What People Are Saying About Emily

“Thoroughly enjoyed the class, Emily is a wonderful instructor and I learned a lot! I really appreciate her taking the time working with me on lighting and composition even though I had a smaller compact camera. I'll look forward to taking other classes she teaches!"

"Emily was terrific.  She gave explicit details re: camera settings, light, composition, and point of view.  She was very patient and gave individual attention.  I appreciated the opportunity to learn from her."

"Emily provided great instruction ahead of time, with tips and ideas. She was wonderful at making sure that everyone got the attention they needed and got real time feedback and help. Emily is awesome!"

"The instructor is a very good teacher and talented photographer. She takes us to interesting locations, gives a short briefing and technical review, then leads the class through the landscape ensuring that we students see all the photo possibilities, while checking that we keep our camera settings adjusted for the changing light. I get introduced to something new in every class. Things I could never have seen alone. With her instruction, I am now producing images that I enjoy to keep and enjoy to share with my family and friends."
