I’ve never seen a professional photographer (or anyone) so willing to share info regarding photography! Amazing! Your passion for this is contagious and appreciated. I love taking pictures, but I love it even more now!Jennifer Lewans
“Now I feel completely empowered” I felt fairly comfortable with my camera before the workshop, but now I feel completely empowered. Thank you so much for all the knowledge, hints, answers and humour! My A-ha moments – backlighting, single shot focusing and tips for photographing kids.Laura Jensen
“Individualized learning experiences” This was a fantastic experience, I can’t believe how much info was given in two days!Jodie Bialkoski
More from this two days than my college class!” Even after instruction in a college course on photography about the technical aspects of a camera, I did not know why I was changing things to make the picture better. After Greg’s Intro workshop, I now know why I am doing what I am doing with my camera.Nicole Olfert
WOW! This course has created so many AH-HA moments for me. Greg not only simplify my camera to a tool that I finally understand, he made it fun and interesting. The two days flew by and I was disappointed when it ended. Even if you know absolutely nothing about photography, this is the course for you. Well worth the money, I would do it again in a ... read more
This is a common sense course that applies to everybody. This course will elevate your knowledge of the camera as well as how to look at all photography with a professional eye. Greg covered a lot of material for all different levels of photographer and all different cameras in an entertaining fashion. The two days went by fast but I was able to retain... read more
I really don’t like doing reviews because I am not sure what to say...so here goes!!! Greg was simply wonderful, he doesn’t talk down to you even if he has to tell you a dozen times until the light bulb comes on and you get it!!! I never felt intimidated and if I did get confused he’d help me get through my brain cramp. I look forward to my practice... read more
I've taken a couple of other photography course before, and this one was definitely the best. Greg has a way of cutting through the crap and simplifying the process of taking pictures. He avoided the trap of trying to cover lots of camera features, and focused on the main ones critical to taking quality shots. Despite a diverse background of students... read more
It was a wonderful and amazing workshop. Greg has awesome technique the way he coaching us, very smart teaching style, A very good mentor, inspiring, enthusiastic, and he has a sense of humour. I like the way that he "bullied" everyone in the group. Looking forward to the next workshop.
I walked in not sure what to expect. I walked out knowing how to use my camera with confidence. 14 hours of class and I cannot wait to go out and shoot anything I can possibly shoot. Greg was an amazing teacher, very patient, funny, interactive instructor and stopped to answer all and any questions. If you have a passsion for photography, or just want... read more
I have taken a lot of courses and been in a lot of classrooms over the 20+ years I served in the military. Greg has a way of instructing that isn’t just restricted to instructing, it is engaging, entertaining and informational. Presented in an easy to understand format or way, if you will. It is clear he likes what he does and that passion comes through... read more
This is the second time around taking this intro class! I still found it interesting and picked up a few more skills that I might of missed during the first class taken almost two years ago! I really enjoyed the part when Greg shows the student's practice photos taken after the first day of lessons. The way Greg commands on each photo on the good and... read more
The workshop hosted by Greg was fantastic. Using humour and repetition he taught us the skills to form a solid foundation in our photography. The course was definitely worth the time and money. I look forward to taking Greg's intermediate classes.
I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Greg is so enthusiastic and makes the class interesting, informative, educational and amusing! I would recommend this workshop to anyone who likes taking photos. I will for sure take this workshop again once I practice some of the techniques I learned.
I just bought a new camera and Greg definitely showed that I was not using it's potential. The class was light hearted, informative and a great couple of days of learning.
Entertain - Educate - Inspire. Greg freakin nailed it! The camera workshop (Auto-Moders Anonymous) was a constant string of "Ah-ha" moments. After years of banging my head against a wall trying to figure out how to use my camera and make it do what I hoped it would it took only 2 days with Greg to clear up and solidify the process. I'm so stoked on... read more
I would recommend this amazing two day course to anyone wanting to get using their camera in a real way. The instruction made this possible in only two days of super fun discussion and training. Thanks for being there Greg....
I first took this course 3 years ago, and with the amount of content packed into the weekend taking it a second time helped me to have a deeper understanding of the creative concepts and technical aspects of the DSLR camera. It was also nice to ask some questions that were focused on my personal photography and how I can develop that further in the... read more
A wonderful learning experience! Love your teaching style, your humour and your enthusiasm. I had attended a workshop a couple of years age, learned a lot there (started with zero knowledge there), but had gotten into a rut again. This workshop clarified many points for me - using manual and aperture priority modes so will now feel much more confident... read more
This was an amazing workshop, where I finally started to learn all that my camera can do and I have control over what my photos might look like. When asked by others not in the class what I thought of the class this was my reply. "Greg talked my level, never over my head and repeated the steps many times. He never made me feel that I wouldn't be able... read more
Thank-you Greg for the fabulous photography workshop, enjoyed every minute of it!! Truly, in this workshop one does not even want to leave the classroom for a pee for fear you might miss something.... so much valuable information - made simple and easy for one to understand; so entertaining- many many laughs throughout the 2 days and from such a personable... read more
Before attending Greg's workshop, I always struggled with manual mode on my DSLR even though I took some online courses. I registered for Greg's workshop not knowing what to expect and the workshop exceeded my expectation. After just two days at the workshop, I am so comfortable shooting in manual mode that I don't think I will need to shoot in automatic... read more
I have been using manual mode for a while without a real understanding of what I was actually doing. Now I truly understand how my camera works and the things I need to change to fix my issues not just guesswork. All that in just 2 short days! Greg delivered the material in a fun, funny and interesting way that allows me to recall what to change and... read more
Greg did a great job of mixing knowledge, humour and participation into the class. His process on beginning with the required elements and proceeding to refine each into tricks and doable processes was very good. His use of example photos was also very helpful to see what the finished product was. Really enjoyed the class.
