  • Photography Workshops

     Ian is an easy going, full of wit and very informative instructor who teaches as to the learners ability. Fun and knowledge have always been the outcome from his workshops and outings!

     It's just a joy to see how much improved my shots are after some gentle guidance from Ian.

     Excellent photo workshop to the full color fall Vermont mountains. This was more of an experience than just a meetup. Great and had a memorable time.

     I have been attending photography workshops for a few years and last month I discovered Ian through an event organized by my camera club - what can I say! Ian stands head and shoulders above any other educator. He managed to explain the theory of light to us in a way that made it totally understandable. not only that, he was articulate, witty and blessed with a wickedly seductive accent😊

     Ian is a great teacher, his classes are jam packed with tons of great tips ad tricks from a master photographer's point of view. I am excited to use my camera again and getting better shots than I have in the past!

     Ian is great, very knowledgeable and very professional. I look forward to taking more workshops with him in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking to learn more about photography!

     Ian is the best! He is patient and thorough. He cares that you learn and retain what is taught. His teaching is organized, he presents the material, gives example, reviews it, then summarizes the key points in the end. He has plenty of experience and good advice. I highly recommend learning from him. It is exciting to see the joy he still gets from his craft after so many years.

     It was worth the wait! I'm so glad Ian and Les were able to reschedule the workshop. I was able to put into practice the principles we discussed in the morning. The format of having a discussion and then the photo shoot was invaluable to me. Ian helped me troubleshoot to improve my pictures between sets. Les Sampou is a phenomenal singer/song writer. I loved her music. I'm looking forward to seeing her perform again. I also enjoyed talking to the other photography students and fans who came to hear Les.

     Since the Fall of 2014 I have attended about 8 or 10 of Ian's classes. Each class I attend leaves me looking forward to the next. Saying that Ian is an good teacher and his Meet up classes are informative does not do him or his Meetup group justice. He makes you feel welcome and part of his Meetup family. He has a relaxed way of sharing his knowledge with you. He is clearly not just following a script but rather adapting the class to the individual needs of each person in the class. He is clearly someone who loves his trade and enjoys sharing it with us. Those of us that have found him as a mentor are extremely fortunate. Thanks Ian !

  • Photography Workshops

     great, so glad to belong to this meetup 

    Deb D. on Jan 25, 2015.

  • Photography Workshops

     There are some great photographers and just a few photographers who are expert at teaching their subject. Ian is one of those unique souls who not only excels at both but does so with a grace and skill that surpasses understanding. His teaching style is gentle and fun but highly effective and he does it without his ego getting in the way. If you haven"t yet tried one of Ian's classes you should do it now - he is so good at this that he is likely to be snatched away from us by Canon or some major college ! Take advantage of his ridiculously underpriced workshops while you still can!

  • Photography Workshops

     I have learned an incredible amount in just two meet-ups. Ian inserts brilliant trade secrets into his classes, which clearly comes from a great deal of real world experience. I highly recommend this group and look forward to attending more workshops with Ian. 

    Ben B. on Aug 21, 2014.

  • Photography Workshops

     Whether you are looking to improve your studio and lighting skills, learn about performance photography, or wanting to take a better street photo or scenic photo, this is the Meet-up group that will help propel you to the next level in your photography. 

    Michael K. on Jun 14, 2014.

  • Photography Workshops

     Best ROI you could hope for. Amazed at how far I have come in several classes in several months. More to come! Always more to learn... 

    Lynne K. on Feb 23, 2014.

  • Photography Workshops

     I just had a class with Ian at my usual group night. He kindly led a portrait workshop for us. I was blown away by this guys knowledge and teaching skill. I have spent thousands of dollars to hear and see the 'best in the business' but I found Ian to be by far the best I have ever seen. His patience, humor, and willingness to give up his knowledge is unique and extremely refreshing. I wish I had discovered him years ago. He taught us more in two hours than I have gained in days from other teachers and he made it all so easy. I will definitely be spending more time at Ian's classes and I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning photographic skills. Ian is certainly the best photography teacher in New England and I susoect he ranks in the top five in the USA. He should be charging ten times what he currently charges - and if he did it would still be great value! I urge you to join this group and attend his workshops.

     This was my first workshop and it was excellent. I recommend it, not only for improving ones studio lighting skills, but "light' in general. 6 hours has never gone by so quickly! Thank you Ian.

     I think this is a great group. Ian is knowledgable, eager to share, and personable. I look forward to going to more events. 

    Bob P. on Apr 30, 2012.

  • Photography Workshops

     I appreciate the workshops Ian offers because it's focused on imparting wisdom vs. centered around talking at us or bragging. I've been to some workshops where I didn't learn a thing other than how large the ego of the facilitator was so I appreciate that I leave these workshops better educated than when I went in. 

    Jean G. on Apr 23, 2012.

  • Photography Workshops

     Whether you are a point-and-shooter, and avid amateur, or a professional photographer, you will learn new things about photography and visit locations that you didn't know about before. Ian's calm method of teaching is fun, welcoming, and enjoyable.
