     - Krista P.

"I just want to say thanks and that my pictures have changed drastically. They improved to the point when I went to pick some up today from Costco, they made me sign a waiver that this was my own work and wasn't stolen or from a professional."

     - Jason B.

"I'd like to specifically stress how helpful you are as an instructor. As someone with a degree in education, I really value your ability to convey your expertise without coming across as a know-it-all (even though I'm pretty sure you DO know it all!!) You are able to point out areas that could be improved without sounding critical or harsh. You make me want to do my best creatively and technically. Thank you."

     - Karen V.

"Eric has an incredible ability to instruct in a fashion that is interactive and extremely easy to comprehend. A truly amazing instructor, with the knowledge and passion to make any photographer an addict."

     - Denise S.

"My job involves hiring and assessing workshop instructors of all kinds. Eric is amongst the best I've seen. His approach is both challenging and supportive. He is at the same time practiced, reflective and natural. He comfortably strolls through subject matter, sometimes on the fringe or outside of the stated agenda, in a way that is responsive to his learners curiosities and passion... and always returning to the core content. His ability to sense a teachable moment and capitalize on it is remarkable.  His feedback is specific, wrapped around the individual's specific learning interests, constructive and immensely helpful."

      - Jim N.
