"The Zebra video is so amazing! The things you showed on proper Perspective of the elements is a game changer. I am so going to watch it again till everything sinks in. Bravo!!"


Kevin J.

"I have learned so much while watching several of her portrait and composite processing videos over this past year. I particularly enjoy her unscripted style of instruction, as she takes the viewer through her process and explains the “why” behind her techniques, rather than just stepping through them. Watching and listening to the thought process makes the tutorials feel genuine and provides a very enjoyable learning experience."


Michael R.

"I love it. I truly feel like I have learned a lot. Although I’ve been doing composites for some time, I feel like you approach it more like an artist than simply a photographer doing composites ...which made things click..."
