"It was a pleasure meeting you and the rest of the group.
We (mostly) started as strangers but finished up with fun memories
of people we can now genuinely call: FRIENDS. I had a great time. And I even realized that shooting ( for the first time ever ) clothed models wasn't a traumatic experience, after all... I survived!! But for me the most fun was in sharing the company of all, aboard one of the finest cruise ships around ...
Thanks a lot for all the hard work and dedication you put into this cruise, making sure that we all had the best experience possible. Well, in my case I can say for sure that you achieved your goals. I'm looking forward to keeping our friendship alive, meeting you in New York or elsewhere when an opportunity arises.
"I had a blast!!! I cannot wait to get my images!!! I know a lot of them should be really great! I am sad that I didnt have more time to shoot with you. You are a great photographer and a lot of fun!! I would love to do another cruise...or anything really...let me know when and where and I am game!! Keep in touch and let me know when there is something else going on....SERIOUSLY!!!"

"I want to tell you how much of a pleasure it was meeting with you both and
how much I will never forget this trip. I had so much fun and got some
terrific images from all the photographers. And made some new friends that
I will not forget about for a long time going. I would love to be included
on this next cruise you guys plan. I think you putting these events together is a wonderful thing
and it makes me know you have a great heart."
Thanks once again,
"Your workshop was one of
the best I've ever attended. Not at one time did you speak over the
head of anyone in the audience, but you presented even the most basic
information in such a way that you kept the interest of the more
experienced shooters, also. The personal attention you gave to every
attendee was great also. It was obvious you really wanted everyone to
get their money's worth, and leave with useful information. You more
than succeeded!! Add me to your mailing list for future events."
"As for the workshop, it was definitely worth the long drive from Boston. In the past few months I have been trying to learn all that I can about this new style of photography, a new style for me anyway, and your workshop taught me more than I could ever have imagined. You have a great way of explaining things and are not at all condescending like so many other "pros". Even the newest novice could have understood what you were trying to get across. The models were great, you did an excellent job selecting them. I will not hesitate to attend another that interests me."
"First, I was VERY, VERY impressed with the workshop...I've only taken three but that was by far the most informative. The setting was great and the size of the class was just right.
As I said, I've taken other workshops where there are great models, I got great pictures, it was well known workshops, but there isn't really any instruction. I learned more from you in four hours then I did in those other workshops combined.
I was glad you spent so much time explaining lighting and effects and the other details and instruction as you did. THAT'S what I was looking for in regard to my setting up some type of location photography and taking these types of pictures. The shoots I have had were in hotel/house rooms that size so what you presented was perfect!"
"As for Your teaching ability, I would have to say I had attended 5 other workshops in the last year and I believe I picked up more from your shop than any other two combined."
"I had a great time at your workshop on Saturday. I very much liked the
location you chose. It was good to see a location I had not previously considered using.
What I found most helpful was the time you took to explain what shot you
wanted to get, and how to achieve that picture. Setting the lights, and
metering them one by one was very helpful to me. I have been at
workshops where how the lights were set was never explained.
I had considered attending (a different) Glamour workshop on the
same day as yours, but I was afraid it would be just a bunch of guys
crowding around and shooting glamour models. His workshop was almost
double the price of yours. I fee that yours was good value for me, and I
was glad my friend Ray came down from NY to join me.
"Hi Dave,Lloyd here! Thanks for getting back with me on your work shop! it
was Great! I learned a lot in your 4 hr. workshop, the location was Great
but your instructions on your set-ups were even better! Down to earth so
everyone could understand what you wanted to do and achieve in this
workshop! And you nailed it! At least for me! Perfect shots right out of
the camera with little to no Photoshop! I could not believe the results
that I got when I got home that day! I was in OMG I cant believe my eyes at
the results! The girls were Great & the price!~ well worth every penny to
me! You are the Man, Thanks a Million for all of the information you
taught me! Even though there were 10 other photographers there it seemed
to me like it was a one on one workshop! "
"I seriously doubt that anyone was more pleased or impressed than I was with the shoot yesterday. I'm somewhat accustomed to expecting "first class" when you plan events, but I think you exceeded yourself this time. You are to be congratulated and thanked, once again, Dave. I'm looking forward to personal results that compare to the event. If my work turns out half as good as the event itself, I think the models will be very pleased and impressed."
