What Participants are Saying

I have never done cheese or food photography before.  I ended the course able to handle a much more complicated camera than the point and shoot I started with and have taken some quite reasonable photos.  Wonderful quick friendly responses were great too!

Clare Turner, Virginia Chutney Company

It was great to get a formal run down of photography fundamentals. I know a lot of it already, but there were several invaluable tips that really made the world of difference in my photos. Thanks so much for being so accessible and willing to help. I had a great time, and learned so much.

Pam Trail, Mt. Townsend Creamery

It is so great to see the progression of my shots in just 6 weeks!  Participants have different levels of photography experience and different computer platforms but Christine was able to accommodate everyone.  It was a huge learning curve for me to go away from auto and to always shoot in manual mode now. Overall, Kudos!

Rachel Kleine, Green Dirt Farm

I am following along with your course and it's been really awesome watching the progression of my shots improve. Thank you very much for the cheese photography course it has helped tremendously!
