I am a complete novice when it comes to photography and overwhelmed by my new camera. Wanting to get over my fear and confusion I needed to start at the beginning with someone who has a lot of patience, knowledge and talent. My 3 hour private lesson with Gene was exactly what I was looking for. I spent the first 90 minutes in the ‘classroom’ learning how my camera works and the last half of class out in the field taking pictures. I was amazed at the quality pictures I was taking by the end of the lesson. After the lesson Gene sent me an email with all the information we covered during class. I feel I am ready to practice my new learned skills and will be going back to Gene when I’m ready for the next level. I highly recommend Gene / Big Sun Photography !!!
