Laurie and the group were very welcoming on my first event with them! Laurie was there to answer any questions if we had them, but we were more than able to independently wander and find the shots that we liked.

Finally something clicked with me and I understood. This was my 4th “beginning camera” class through different organizations and Laurie Gallant had a way of explaining so it made sense to me. She made sure everyone had opportunities to ask questions and to comment. I really enjoyed the class and look forward to more from her.

Laurie Gallant is an amazing photography teacher! I enjoy the relaxed structure of these outings in the Sacramento area, having learned how to use my DSLR. Being creative, having fun and learning from others while in the natural setting is the best learning style. I highly recommend this program!
