“ LOVE Alamo Arts group and look so forward to doing more things with them. Great amount of knowledge that is so appreciated. So grateful for each of the pro's that are willing to "mentor" those that have the desire, just not the knowledge YET. Us photogs must stick together to further our "art". Thank you Andrea for your willingness to pick up the group and make it so enjoyable. ”

“ LOVE the group. Everyone is on different levels of photography but everyone is ready & willing to help others (Like Me, less experienced) with questions & show you on your own camera how to find things. Yes, Tom I thanking YOU specifically. I really appreciated it. I enjoyed meeting everyone & Andrea next time, I owe you a glass of wine. : ) THanks to you for having this group. I'll be back in two weeks. Do't forget to send me the notes for next week's class. ”

“ Personally I feel we are very fortunate to have someone of this caliber, willing to give of his time because of his passion, to pass on the vast knowledge he has to others. To be able to interact with him, one-on-one. This is so very cool. He talks to everyone as if they are his peer, regardless of their experience. His passion about photography is so apparent in his actions. Wow. ”

“ So far so good. I've only attended this first meetup so we'll see. It looks like it depends on us members. ”

“ I am extremely proud of Rolando and grateful of his ongoing efforts to continuously bring top level talent to advise, mentor, encourage and inspire a wide range of photographers from beginners to experienced veterans. The lessons learned aid tremendously in the advancement of careers and help renew passion in this field. I belong to a few different local photography organizations and find that the AAPG meet-ups have been more valuable than all others combined including the following areas: education, practical execution of techniques, networking, feedback, mentoring, inspiration, and the encouragement of excellence! ”

“ Others should join this meetup group so they can learn from Rolando, visiting speakers, and other members of the group. The need to stay inspired, encouraged & informed is huge and in my opinion cannot be accomplished by staying home. There is something about coming together as a group that removes the aloneness we can feel because we are afraid of asking 'the competition' for help. ”

“ If you want to be involved with some of the best people and learn from one of the best photographers of our time this group is for you. ”

“ For the valuable knowledge that Rolando Gomez has offered to share. ”

“ The current economic situation has us scrutinizing and rationalizing every expense we make for ourselves and family. I can tell you from experience that your small investment to join this organization and the ten dollars for each meeting provides an incredible return on your investment. ”

“ To gain knowledge and information from Rolando, who is so willing to "share the gospel of photography" with anyone interested. Rolando has a wealth of information to share, and a wealth of contacts that are also willing to share, they give a person the opportunity to take away not just book knowledge, but life experiences as well. ”

“ If you love photography and would like to share your experience with other photographers, because you enjoy it then come. This doesn't seem like a group of cut throat pro's that will devalue your work just to be ugly and juvenile. This is an excellent opportunity to network and hopefully, have opportunities to learn from a well known professional photographer. ”
— David W. E. on Feb 26, 2009.
“ It's a great atmosphere to associate with others with similar ideas and passions. ”
