"My husband signed me up to take Scott's workshop as a gift, and it was one of the best gifts I've received. I've taken group workshops in the past, but I feel I learned so much more spending time one-on-one with Scott. It was obvious from the start that he possesses tons of knowledge in all things photography, and I feel very lucky that he was willing to pass that knowledge on to me. Scott's teaching technique is very easy to understand, and he is very patient. If you don't understand something the first time, you will eventually get it with his help. I found his metaphors to be very helpful in remembering and understanding things better. One of my favorites was, you can't build a house without a foundation, which is also true in photography. You need a foundation before you can get a great photograph, and Scott teaches you the techniques to get you there. Before taking the workshop there were some things that I thought I understood fairly well, such as reading a histogram, but after spending a few minutes talking with Scott on the subject, I realized that I wasn't reading it totally accurately. After his explanation on how to read one correctly, and with some practice in the field that day, I understand it much better now. Another great part of the workshop for me was learning how to use filters. Scott is obviously a highly skilled expert in the photography field, and very passionate about his trade. If you are interested in learning more about photography, or want to improve on your skills, I highly recommend that you take one of Scott's workshops. I'm sure you'll love it!"
