“Truly great class with Dimitri – so knowledgeable, helpful, and caring. 10/10!”
“Hi Richard, my husband Bob and I attended the Composition in the Field workshop on July 15th in Red Bank with Dimi as our instructor. The class was great, informative as well as fun. Attached a few of my pictures for you to see. I would definitely recommend the class and may try another at a different location in the future.”
“It was a great location! I have so many favorites I can’t decide on my favorite! I will post some on the web site if there is a way to do that.
For your purposes, I have attached a shot of Dimi teaching Kaila how to use her Sony camera.
“Hi Richard, the class was very good as we got the chance to shoot at both inside the Synagogue and also at areas surrounding it. Dimi did a great job at the class.
All the best,”
