Great class for a beginner, instructors are very helpful, the photo locations are fantastic, would like to see a class for advanced photographers doing a bus trip to include Bandon and Crater Lake.

The beauty of this area is absolutely breathtaking. The willingness of the three photographers to share their tips, techniques, and great humor and wit with all of us was a real treat. Their patience with each of us was commendable, and their ability to understand what level most of us were on, made the trip more enjoyable. They just wanted us to enjoy the beauty of Oregon and to appreciate how to take better pictures. I loved all of the beauty in nature that this trip encompassed. It was fun and interesting. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to meet three wonderful photographers and to meet new friends too. I recommend this trip to other "wanna be" better photographers and just passionate lovers of Oregon's natural beauty, as I am.

I now understand my camera's menu better, can move through it faster and take sharper pictures. Photographers were informative, supportive and fun! It was a GREAT trip and the beauty of Northern OR is beautiful. I will return!

NW Oregon provides a wide variety of photo opportunities--ocean, mountains, waterfalls, rivers, and plenty of flowers. Be sure you note the "active" categorization of this trip. You will do a lot of walking!

If you've never visited Portland, don't wait. It is a wonderful city in a beautiful state. I intend to re-visit.
