TESTIMONIALS

“Mike is one of the best outdoor-location-action-adventure photographers I know. And in his ‘Speedlights, camera, action lighting workshop’ I took, he taught and demonstrated his successful techniques for us all to learn. I came away with new knowledge I could put to practical use right away. He and his wife Lauri make a great teaching team.”

– Jeff S (Anchorage, AK)

“I was hoping for adventure and you delivered! I can’t wait to practice all I learned in the last week. I feel I have better tools and a better eye to see landscapes through a camera. I feel like I will be able to make more impactful landscape photos thanks to the guidance and knowledge you passed on to me.”

– Tammy A (Missoula, MT)

“I asked Michael to by my guide and mentor in Zion. Michael adjusted to my goals and skill level as an accomplished mentor should. Michael personalized content, location and style that was very effective for me. Not only did I return home with high quality images, but more importantly, the ability to apply what I learned immediately.

After working with Michael, I have a working knowledge of more advanced exposure techniques, composition guidelines and shooting in different kinds of weather.”

– Christopher F (Dallas, TX)
