Here is what people are saying about his workshops:

"Adam was great! His enthusiasm and can do attitude was infectious and made it fun.” Keith

"Having participated in workshops with different professional photographers over the years, I continue to believe that Adam's approach to teaching is truly unique. During my personal workshop, he revealed a unique ability to teach me a new way of looking at this beautiful three dimensional world and how best to capture that in a two dimensional medium.  Photographic concepts and techniques I had been reading about for years in books finally came to light for me. As a bonus, his fun positive attitude and passion for photography is infectious!" Steve Schaefer

"I attended Adam's fall color workshop in Utah's Wasatch mountains.  Although I have lived here for 30 years Adam showed me places I have never seen before and taught me new techniques for capturing images of the of the place I love.  Great informative weekend."  Kit Smith
