Kris S. Cambria, CA

“Such a great class not overwhelming. Felt like I had plenty of time to shoot and got help when I needed it. I like that you provided the food so we could pick different and interesting items. Learned some great tips on shooting as well as fixing images. LIked the format and structure of the class.”

“The class covered lots of ground and flew by so quickly. Both Christina and Amy are a delightful team, very patient. The class challenges you to think and consider which elements will work well together to create a beautiful composition. Its harder than it looks. The leave behind booklet will serve as a resource step by step guide to how to save files. Can’t wait to recommend this class to friends”

“I learned new and interesting things on optimizing images for web and print. The advice for taking pictures in natural light was so helpful. Sooooo helpful.”
Marian R. Woodland Hills, CA

“Thank you so much for the class. You and Amy are amazing and I walked away with so much more knowledge than I thought I would be able to get in one day.”
Jimin B. Los Angeles

“Thank you for being so generous with information!!! It is rare when professionals actually know how to teach. It was breath of fresh air. There are a lot of classes out there of very talented people supplementing their income by teaching, and bless their hearts, they don’t have the words to convey their craft in an understandable way. Not only was Christina easy to understand but had the patience of Job when bombarded with questions. I was amazed at how she broke down Photosho for beginners into bite site pieces. I have used Photoshop since it first came out and I still learned new things that will be very helpful to me with web optimizing. Amy was very easy to understand and I loved the “recipe for a great shot” handout. She inspired me to think before styling. I loved watching her work. Great job all the way around!”

The Business of Photography Testimonials:

"I've found the business end of photography to be daunting. After taking this class I feel as though I have a far better grasp on how a business should be run.
