"Thank you so much for a most memorable experience on your Antelope Slot Canyon Workshop. It is by far the best photo workshop I have ever attended. What made it so great was that you are totally approachable, knowledgeable, helpful and patient, and have such fine insights into both the artistic and technical aspects of photography . . ."
