Great course. Very knowledgeable. Thank you very much! (Dawson Shaflita)

This course was really well proportioned with classroom time vs field work as well as instruction being relevant to field work. Love how the course covered everything from camera and accessories to post-picture taking. Appreciated the open forum during classroom discussions. (Carla Travis)

I appreciated the mix of hands-on experience as well as the classroom information. I got lots of ideas on to improve my macro photos in terms on inexpensive equipment and accessories. I appreciated the experience and knowledge of the presenter as well as being able to try out different lenses & equipment. (Carol-Anne Haring)

Testimonial for a presentation on macro photography at the Central Alberta Photography Society, Red Deer, 2015

“Your excellent presentation was very well received by the CAPS membership and generated a great deal of discussion afterwards. Members can hardly wait to get outside and start hunting “bugs.” As a result of your presentation CAPS will be hosting some outings over the summer months that will specifically focus on macro photography (pun intended). Your images were very beautiful and many members commented that they never knew Alberta had such a diversity of interesting and stunning insects. Thank again you from CAPS” — Jim McKinley (Vice-president)
