What people are saying about this class:
"As CEO of Cottonwood Center for the Arts we look to hire instructors not just for their aptitude in their subject, but also their ability to impart lessons that resonate for our students. Further, we seek personalities that attract people to our courses. Mike Pach is by far our most successful instructor at Cottonwood. His classes are extremely well attended and appreciated. Mike is our biggest revenue producer in our education program, is 100% reliable and represents his students' interests with true integrity. I will continue to rehire Mike as long as he's available and highly recommend him." Jon Khoury
"I really enjoyed Mike Pach’s digital photography class. The information was presented in an organized and clear manner. He offered a lot of individual help. The assignments supported the class material and were fun. The critiques were very helpful as well. I am using my camera in new ways, feel more confident about my photos and would recommend the class to others." ~ Alana Thrower
“I just completed Mike Pach's Digital Photography Class held at Tri-Lakes Center For The Arts. The class was outstanding. Mike covers the basics of digital photography in a way that is easy to follow and learn. I felt that my photography skills improved tremendously. The classes were well organized and fun. Mike is a great instructor.” ~ Robert Baumgartner
"I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot!!!" ~ Christa McCormick
"This class was outstanding! I am new to photography and it was the perfect environment for me to learn the basics of my camera, as well as many more advanced aspects. The format of the class is very hands-on and each attendee is able to access their own camera, no matter the brand, and ask questions in real-time to become familiar with all of the "bells and whistles". It was also a good experience for those with several years of photography experience. Excellent!" ~ Kay Dennis
