“Valuable and fun experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

My experience with Portland Photo Tour left me feeling accomplished! I have a new confidence taking photos using Manual mode which I had never even used prior to this class. Jennifer, my instructor, was very friendly and helpful. She was available to answer questions and offer advice while we actually got to practice applying newly learned concepts by taking photos of spectacular sites in Portland. I had taken a lecture class previously and could not remember the information by the time I got home. With Portland Photo Tour and Jennifer's help, I feel like I have taken the next step in my growth as an aspiring photographer!

“You will leave this experience with more than what you expected, and it will be worth it.”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

Jennifer is a skilled instructor who gets right down to the nitty gritty of how to take excellent photos, and I left this two-hour workshop with a new-and-improved approach to using my camera. I have come away from the workshop with some fundamental rules-of-thumb that I know I will use for the rest of my life. I feel like every minute of instruction and practice during the workshop was valuable, and as a bonus I got to see some iconic places in Portland on a beautiful fall day.
