I had a fantastic workshop with you at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and White Sands. I learned so much about shooting sunrises and sunsets, birds in motion, and numerous camera settings. I can't wait to attend another photo trip and continue my learning. Jani G.

I want to thank you for a great trip. Andy is very organized and this trip is packed with photo opportunities besides the Aurora Borealis. We attended the World Ice Art Championships and a local sled dog race. The scenery on the Dalton Highway is beautiful and Andy did a fantastic job driving us safely. Vic N.

As expected, the Florida Birding Workshop was fantastic. Capturing birds in intriguing situations rather than static portraits is more challenging then I ever dreamed. But combining your instruction on bird habits, utilzing flash and continuous focusing certainly made for some excellent results. 4,000 pictures and 34 bird species later I am ready for the National Audubon Society! Thanks again! I am sure we will see you again sometime soon. Ned B.

Just a short note to say thanks for a very enjoyable time shooting photos in the Palouse.  I really had a nice few days and have some good images to work on.  In spite of the not so ideal weather the first couple days, you managed to find some good subjects to photograph so I was not disappointed. Thanks to your experience and expertise I learned some valuable pointers from you that will help me to become a better photographer. Scott S.
