"I just want you to know how much I appreciated and enjoyed your class on using digital cameras. You did an excellent presentation. I feel so much more secure in using my camera." B.P.

"Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful Advanced digital camera class [Allen] had last week. I attended the beginners class and decided to take the advanced and he did a great job explaining and showing us how to use our cameras. I was happy to learn that the same principles I learned to use on my old AE-1 Canon are alive and well on my new digital camera, just need to learn where the right buttons are." "The class was a great value and I recommend it for anyone that is using the AUTO setting!". Patti Viola
