    I can't believe how bamboozled I was by the forecast of rain! Sorry, everyone. Hopefully we'll be all set for Saturday, May 17th. :-)

    I am so sorry to change my RSVP at this late date, but my sister is graduating on May 10 and the ceremony is earlier than I'd thought. I'm so sorry to miss this amazing class!

    do i need to attend this class?

    April 29, 2014

    • Phil S.

      The decision is completely yours, though for the best waterfall shots a tripod is almost required. I will be able to help you get some good shots with your current equipment, but you may decide to wait and continue with your practice. I hope this helps!

  • Stephanie E.

    What are the fees for? Entry into the park?

    April 25, 2014

    • Phil S.

      This is a hands-on class with 2 options: $40 to visit 2 waterfalls, $60 to visit all 3. This payment is for my teaching time, of which there will be a lot. Additional fees are for parking at each park and are usually $5 or less. Hope this helps and you can make it!

    • Stephanie E.

      Okay. Sounds good thanks!
