“I was so impressed by how many “trade secrets” he freely shared. I couldn’t learn as much as I did in this workshop on my own, if I worked hard for years.” – Besma A

“I just want to say thanks for a great workshop!  I really enjoyed my time and the information you gave.  I have had my DSLR camera for a number of years now, always playing with it and trying different things.  I always thought I could just teach myself with photography books and the camera manual and not really need to take a class.  I always thought, I have an Art degree, I understand composition and color – now I just need to learn the tool and thought I could do it myself.  But even after reading and re-reading and trying different things, my photos didn’t always do what I wanted.  Your sessions helped pull so many aspects of photography together and helped me to see and use my camera in new ways, and helped me understand all those aspects I was trying to learn about!” – Travis S

“I began to read every book about photography that I could get my hands on. I also enrolled in a nature photography class taught by Jim Doty. Jim’s class proved incredibly helpful, covering many specific techniques employed by professional photographers that weren’t in any of the dozens of books I owned. Jim’s class helped me to develop technically, and the results were instantly apparent.”  – Jeremy B
