     "Matt has helped me learn the basics of shooting - shutter speed, lighting, aperture, depth of field, ISO and RAW. He has taught us how to store our photos and how to edit them.  All of this has helped me understand my camera quite a bit more." 

      "Matt has so much experience, enthusiasm and knowledge about photography. The class is a bargain price - well worth the cost! The Power Point presentation alone is invaluable. I highly recommend this class!"

       "Even though I missed the first couple of classes, Matt made me feel welcome and made sure that I didn’t miss any material. Matt is always willing to answer questions, in class and outside of class, and is so enthusiastic about photography."

      "It was fantastic to get together once a week with a group of people who also wanted to learn more about photography (and it was totally fine, even helpful, that we all were at different levels...). Dedicating a couple hours once a week is the best way to learn and to practice."
