“I am writing to RAVE about Ross.  I have worked with Ross often on personal and professional projects and admire his visual point of view and authoritative presence on any photo shoot. As a style editor and author of picture books I have turned to Ross over and over to create memorable images that feel spontaneous and timeless.   Portraits of people, cakes, events, landscapes, and children all reflect the exceptional spirit that infuses Ross, he knows how to capture life for us all to enjoy.”
Maria McBride. Director, Maria McBride Productions

“I have known Ross Whitaker for years now and I have attended several of his workshops. Not only has he made me a much better photographer but he is such an incredible instructor... He has a wonderful eye for critiquing our work and pointed out simple improvements that have made a big difference. Ross takes the time to teach you and makes sure you understand the why's and the consequences. He has always been there for me, only an email away. Thanks for being such a great mentor Ross. ”
Louisa Paez Michelin, Photographer, Boca Raton,FL

“Ross Whitaker is one of my favorite photographers. He is always able to keep things positive, and always makes photography fun.  He is a very driven photographer. In addition to constantly shooting, Ross is always challenging himself. When he's not shooting jobs, he's shooting for himself. He is very generous with his time, and his knowledge. Ross has always given me an honest answer, anytime I've come to him with questions, ranging from the technical end to the business end of photography. ”
Raymond Adams, Professional Photographer, NYC
