"I do believe that Zack is not only a talented photographer but also a person who has a talent with imparting knowledge. Zack shares freely and passionately, and it comes through in his classes. I am amazed at the level of interest and engagement with each student and each subject. I hope that these classes continue and that I can do more with Zack!" - Recent Workshop Participant

"This is the third class I've taken with Zack. As with my previous classes, I entered feeling overwhelmed by my lack of knowledge about these programs. I left feeling confident that I can do this! Zack is an amazing teacher and presents the material in a way that makes it easy to learn. I would recommend Zack's workshops to anyone looking to expand their knowledge and love of photography!Recent Workshop Participant

"This is my second workshop with Zack, if i lived in the city i would take more workshops with him. He is gentle in his teaching methods, and always makes sure that the class understands before he moves onto the next step. Even though i have used Lightroom from many years, I found that Zack's little hints about using Lightroom were great, and so helpful. Can't wait to take another workshop from him!" - "Just Shoot RAW" 2016 Workshop Participant
