    Goes over my pictures with me, explains things in my terms. Does not make me feel dumb.

    Michael is a great teacher! His knowledge is extensive and he does a great job explaining his process. I also appreciate the time Michael puts into creating his lesson plans along with the homework he assigns me which continues my learning outside of our sessions. Regardless of your level of experience, if you're interested in learning more about photography, Michael will meet you where you are and provide you with insight to learn and grow.
