decent April 10, 2017
Reviewer: Dawn Brown from Whittier, CA United States  
Christine was very knowledgeable, but a bit more time in spots to actually setup and breakdown equipment and take photos would've been nice. I felt hurried most of the time.
Maybe I read the descriptions wrong, but I don't feel that there was a whole lot of tips/help given towards improving our landscape or exposure techniques.

In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams... and more! April 10, 2017
Reviewer: Sylvia Lottes from San Dimas, CA United States  
Our photographer for the half-day class was Christine and she did an amazing job with her knowledge of Yosemite Valley, Ansel Adams and the history of both.  I would say I'm an intermediate photographer and know my camera settings.  My husband is new to digital photography and has a new mirrorless camera.  Christine showed us places that we would not have found on our own plus she keep our session at the right pace for both of us.  The session was well worth it especially since we were in the area for only a few days.

Great Photo Workshop March 30, 2017
Reviewer: James Hill from Rohnert Park, CA United States  
Christine is an excellent photo guide. Walking workshop was tailored to a few students who braved stormy weather. We were allowed a look in Ansel Adams darkroom. A lot came to light in that darkroom. Storm clouds opened up creative views of The Valley's iconic monuments. Our small group shared stories while walking between vista viewpoints. The stories behind our photographs were an unexpected highlight. Thanks Christine.

An outstanding experience February 12, 2017
Reviewer: Erik Endress from Ramsey, NJ United States  
I had a wonderful time on this walk. Our guide was amazing, sharing very personal knowledge and expertise. She knew exactly where to go, shared the story of what happened there and worked with each of us to make our photos. At the end of the day, we all wanted the walk to continue!

Great Opportunity to Understand Ansel Adams' Work August 14, 2016
Reviewer: Timothy Wilson from Rochester, NY United States  
This was a great opportunity to understand Ansel Adams' work in Yosemite. Seeing the locations many of the photos was very helpful and the discussion gave a really good perspective on his approach to the work. Very enjoyable and a highlight of my visit to Yosemite!
