"Just a note of thanks to you both for having me at your wonderful workshop. There are events that occur in one's life that you consider a milestone for growth for who you are or become. I can honestly say that your workshop is one of my milestone events." "I truly enjoyed your workshop. The experience expanded my perspective and I have not felt this level of excitement since I started in photography. The best workshop of the dozen that I have attended." "I must say that your seminar was the best investment I have made since I bought my first shares of GE a long time ago. Not a day goes by that I do not put to use some of the vast knowledge base I learned." "As to the workshop, I wanted to add that I really got a lot out of it. Theres the stuff you promise that well get out of it in your description of it online, and thats all true. But theres something more, too; a kind of inner dialogue that takes up impressions, conversations, interactions during the couple of days I spent there and which constantly accompanies me when Im exploring a visual experience and deciding whether to record it or not, when Im in the darkroom working on a print, and when Im looking at my own or other peoples photographs. So thanks thanks to you and to Paula for all the tangible things, and even more for the intangible things." "I want to thank all of you for making the workshop such an unforgettable experience. I had the chance to make some new friends, reconnect with some old friends, view some wonderful photographs, dine on some marvelous food, and I learned a LOT too! I'll likely never look at a photograph or my ground glass the same way again. As I stated to Michael, from reading various posts, I figured I knew what Paula was going to do under the darkcloth, but she opened up a whole new world during that 30 minute session. I couldn't be more excited!"
