Comments from this weekend’s Macro and Close-up workshop participants

I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all the participants who attended the workshop this weekend.  Most of all thanks for your wonderful comments – I am glad you all came away with something of value from the session.

Comments from the participants:

Shiv is a very knowledgeable photography instructor. He presents his material so that everyone can understand the concepts. He was very thorough and open to answering students’ questions. He gave out a lot of useful, practical information that was well worth the price of the course.

This workshop was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to learn about Macro or Micro Photography.

Nothing beats this small group format for a workshop. It really provides a one on one feeling in addition to getting to practice what you learned with your peers. All this plus having someone there with Shiv’s expertise to answer and questions, which he encourages you to ask, makes for a great learning experience. I would do this again in a heartbeat. -Matt

This workshop was very informative from the presentation right through to the hands on. 

Shiv’s skill as a workshop leader comes with his ability to articulate difficult concepts in a way for the lay person to understand. I highly recommend!!

The information flowed well-the presentation was easy to follow. hands on with instructor assistance was outstanding. I would attend another seminar/workshop by Shiv any time. Bob B.

Your work lead me to believe that I could learn something from you. Just didn’t realize how much. You packed a lot into this workshop….well worth the price.

Really enjoyed this and would do it again in a heartbeat.

After attending many workshops, this is one of the best. Concepts around macro shooting are difficult to understand and your examples were clear and helped me immensely! I truly appreciate your ability to articulate a concept clearly and concisely. Thanks for a great day…inviting house, lunch and lots of things to work on!

I particularly like how other participants more experienced help out those with less. I felt people were not intimated at all and were free to acknowledge their weaknesses and learn…you helped a great deal with that by announcing that no question was weak…everyone learns something.

Depending on one’s own level of experience…more experienced photographer will get more and those with less, get less but everyone comes away with something…a sign of success in my book. No presenter can meet everyone’s needs but can make an impact even in a small way.

The presentation included a lot more detail and information than I expected.

Looking Back at 2011

2011 was an interesting year in a lot of respects.  Most important and foremost I would like to thank all of you who participated in my photo tours, educational workshops and one-on-one lessons.  I would also like to thank all my photography clients both individuals and  corporations and my sponsors, you have all been fantastic and I look forward to your continued support in the coming years.

I truly enjoyed meeting and making new friends and the process of learning from each other.  The incredible experiences in Florida, Alaska, Colorado, Cape Cod, Maine, and New Hampshire and all the one day trips in and around Massachusetts will never be forgotten.

After many months of planning the 2012 schedule is about ready to be published.  Most significant are the photo tours and workshops to India in February, Florida for another great bird photograpy workshop in March,  Smokeys in the Spring  –  this starts the year.  Keep an eye out for details and more information as we post it in the workshop pages on this blog.

Also planned are a number of one and two day sessions for macro, lighting, composition, Lightroom and Photoshop training.  As always, customized one-on-one programs are also available.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible amount of planning and organizing by my photograpy partner and loving wife – thank you M.
