    The course was just what I needed to get me started with a new passion. The instructor Stacey was great to work with. Stacey was clear, helpful and had a lot of knowledge. We had a good morning at Shearwater Lake and touched on the creative side of Photography as well as the some of the technical side. I would highly recommend Stacey as an instructor and the course for anyone who wants to take there pictures to another level. All I need to do now is practice.
