“A Great Experience! Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

I received a camera for my birthday and a class at NYC Spark Your Creativity...and it was such a great experience that I keep going back! Every class teaches me something new and allows my creativity to flow a bit more. Roberta is a magnificent teacher - patient, kind, funny, and sincere! I would recommend for everyone - from beginners to seasoned individuals. You can fly solo, with friends or with your partner. This is a great opportunity to learn new things, take great pictures, explore New York and meet new & interesting people. I would highly recommend it to all!

“Great instruction, great concepts, great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

Roberta's workshops are well thought out. I enjoyed her safari in NYC and the shooting at Grand Central. Her encouragement, and constructive feedback lets you move forward by opening up to new ideas and creations; even for those who are just starting out to use their equipment, they come out with great stuff in the end. I am glad I went to her sessions. Highly recommended.

“Looking Forward to the Next One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

Roberta's warmth and know-how are a great combination for students of all levels. Our safari to El Barrio pushed me out of my comfort zone with manual camera settings and also introduced me to some fresh subject matter. I especially enjoyed reviewing images on her iPad afterward and having the opportunity to learn from the other participants. All in all, a great value!

“Awesome photography class for parents!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

Roberta's Parents & Children photography class in Central Park was a great way to enjoy the park with the kids, while learning to take advantage of our cameras. Roberta taught us basic principles to get more out of our DSLRs (which up to the class we only used on "auto" mode) and also several ways to get more of our iphones, including suggestions on very useful apps.

Our group had three adults and three kids ranging from 3 months to 3 years in age. Roberta was super patient and very accommodating to the varying needs of the little ones, while making sure we received the information we needed and allowing time for practice and critique - a hard balance to strike!

We definitely learned a lot today and feel we're already getting much better shots!
