"I am a Project Manager for Hewlett-Packard but I have been interested in photography since 1976 when I got my first camera. I have been slowly going nuts ever since. I dabbled in wedding photography in the late 80's and early 90's, but mostly I would arrange my vacations and free time to shoot wherever and whenever possible. I consider myself an amateur with compulsive tendencies.

I knew I was in trouble when digital cameras came out since it involves photography and computers. I tried to avoid digital photography for as long as possible. But after I bought my first digital camera I knew there would be no going back. I do not know if I would use the word addicted, it might be the right word, but I do not know if I would use it.

As part of my re-emersion into Photography I have done a several photography workshops over the last few years. I think I have attended at least four on flash and creative lighting alone. The Flash Clinic I took with Photo Quest Adventures was the best I have taken. I not only increased my knowledge using the flash I also find myself looking for reasons to use it more and more. Before the class I always used the flash on the camera and only rarely. Now I am using all the time, the changes in my photography are very noticeable.

One of my classmates was taking the clinic for the second time, and I thought she was nuts. By the end of the first day I knew I wanted to take the clinic again. Not because I was overwhelmed, but because the clinic changed the way I think not only within the confines of flash photography, but my whole approach to photography.

I hope you continue this clinic. I will take it again and have already recommended it to everyone I know. This clinic alone has done more for my photography than I thought was possible."
