An amazing day

Good morning Seth,

I want to thank you for an amazing day.  I have never been in a professional studio and it was another world for me.  I so appreciated your sharing your knowledge and passion with us and taking care to answer our questions.  I am entirely intrigued with the magic you create with lighting and can only imagine the time you have spent in your career building your craft.  At this point in my life, if I could do it over again, I just might choose to have taken my degree in photography!  It seems like a path to lifelong learning.

If you ever teach an extended class on lighting (more for beginners) and hands on, I’d love to attend.  I can see that solving these problems would be challenging and a lot of fun.  I am so delighted our paths have crossed.

With gratitude, Ivy

Filling our minds

Thank you Seth for opening up your studio and sharing with us, I just want to thank you for taking time and filling our minds. Kevin

Seth is amazing

Seth is amazing.  It was a great experience

Blown away by Seth’s teaching approach

I was blown away by Seth’s teaching approach. So patient, fun and understanding with us all as we went over basic concepts that were initially very intimidating (to me). I really enjoyed myself and loved all the tips and explanations he offered. I am so thankful to have taken this class and hope to see more from Seth.

Really appreciate your generosity

Hello, Seth! It was a great pleasure to be able to meet you and learned so much from your vast experience in photography. I really appreciate your generosity in sharing and helping me improve my headshot skills. I am looking forward to your next session. God bless! Cindy
