"Best workshop I have ever taken. Vicki went above and beyond my expectations. She provided excellent, personalized instruction, based on a customized workshop design. She also shared a LOT of great insights based on helping me to assess my own style, taking me out to shoot in the kinds of locations suited to my needs, and then providing interactive coaching and feedback. As a result of taking her workshop, I am going to become a much better photographer. Even before the course was done, I had already made significant improvements.
