“I seldom treat myself to a workshop. You gave me a whole new way of looking at my photography and widened my vision of what is possible for me to create. You inspired every single person in the room and made each of our images look professional and radiant. As a result of your teaching, I am already committing myself to a new way of working with my images and am excited at the possibilities that await me. Thanks so much for your pioneer spirit and generosity.”

“Thanks again for the amazing workshop! Your workshop was by far the most enlightening, energizing and useful 8 hours I have ever spent. As a full time nature and landscape photographer I spend a vast amount of my days digitally processing images. I came away from your workshop with many new techniques, better ways to use the techniques I already had, and most importantly, a structure for organizing my work flow.”

“...What a privilege to take a workshop from one of the masters in the field! Now I know where I am trying to go What a privilege to take a workshop from one of the masters in the field! Mac Holbert showed me what to aspire to. I realize it will take lots of practice and experimentation, but now I have a clear vision of the goal. Besides that, Mac's love of the art is contagious, and I'm even more excited about the possibilities than I was before.”
