Workshop Reviews

"Dear Philippe, Please forgive for taking so long to get back to you about your questionnaire…things have been a little crazy lately. I thoroughly enjoyed my mentoring session with you! As I told you on the day of the session I shot professionally years ago (before the digital age) in a controlled studio environment. I was interested in working with my new camera in natural lighting and learning about how to create beautiful images, which you truly helped me to do. You really helped advance my photographic skills by helping me to understand my equipment’s limitations as well as teaching me the many features of my camera. Since working with you I have started my own photography business and continue to be inspired by your work. I can’t think of anything that would have made the mentoring session better because I learned so much. I just wish I could have retained everything you taught me in that session! I would highly recommend your mentoring to anyone interested in creating beautiful images such as yours and when I encounter another up and coming photographer I will send them to see you first! I am working hard to become the photographer you saw inside me and hope to one day live up to the standards of fine photography that show through in every image you produce. I sincerely thank you for all your assistance and I want you to know I consider you to be an elite photographer and a true friend." Sincerely, -L. Roberts

"I liked that the conversations were almost more two photographers talking rather than a teacher-student type relationship. When talking to some photographers sometimes you feel like they're almost talking down to you because you're new to the industry, but I never once got that feeling with this program and I liked that a lot..."

"I feel like I learned so much more than I could have because Philippe just leveled with me and was honest, open and candid about everything. Philippe gave me some great ideas and suggestions on what to do with my business where I am now, and how to expand that when I become more established... I was very pleased. I didn't really know what to expect going into it, but it far exceeded whatever expectations I did have! Thanks so much again Philippe, this experience was so valuable and I'm so glad I did it!" -A.Curcio

"I liked the hands on instruction and getting to practice a bit. Then when I got home I could continue practicing what I was shown because I had actually done it. It was a huge step forward for me and I feel that my pictures are better and I take less time editing in many cases. Philippe is extremely knowledgeable and able to share that in a lay person’s terms. I was where I was in my learning and I never got the feeling that my questions were silly! Philippe respected me in that way and I felt very comfortable. I was very pleased and am doing it again!" -L.Fulton
