Photography Workshop April 17, 2018
Reviewer: Harry Dale from Magherafelt, County Londonderry United Kingdom  
Michael was exceptional. He had a mixed bag of enthusiasts and managed to keep it interesting throughout regardless of individual skill levels. I really enjoyed the afternoon - great hints and tips and a super introduction to the valley - thank you, well worth travel 6,200 miles for

Wednesday afternoon photography tour April 9, 2018
Reviewer: Jennifer S. from San Diego, CA United States  
Had an amazing time with Michael as my tour leader!  His knowledge of Ansel Adams Photography was superb.  He also taught me  how to work my camera better and took me to some great locations in the park, which I would never have found on my own.  I would highly recommend this tour!

A wonderful Day with Mike March 31, 2018
Reviewer: Jackie Kneeland from Placervile, CA United States  
I learned so much from Mike and his instructions on taking photos in Yosemite with my SLR.  I took about 140 pictures that day and when I came home and downloaded them to Photoshop, I was able to view them as thumbnails all at once and I was astounded at the difference from the morning photos and the after the class photos.  He also showed us that Yosemite is not only waterfalls and Half Dome.  I can't wait to come back.

Review November 20, 2017
Reviewer: Tim Matey from Appleton, WI United States  
While I would consider myself an advanced amateur photographer and feel that I know my way around my camera pretty well, there is always something new to learn. To that end, Christine Loberg delivered more than I expected. She was able to answer any question that I had, walked me through some settings that I rarely used and shared some of her best shooting locations. The session was over before I knew it. I came away with some fantastic images - a few will find their way onto my wall as big prints. Thanks again Christine!
