Student Comments

I’m so glad I signed up for Tom’s intro to photography class. I had my camera for over a year and had no idea how to actually use it. Now, I’m much more comfortable taking photos with it and no longer use the automatic setting. Tom is kind, patient, and honest with his feedback. I’d definitely recommend his class to others!

I’d like to first thank you for the lesson yesterday.  I haven’t been able to stop thinking about everything that I have learned.  I have not been a student for some time so it is taking a bit longer for some things to sink in.  I really appreciate your patience with someone as inexperienced as I am.

“Thanks so much for the introduction to photography. It was the intro we needed to start improving all the photos we’ll be taking in the decades ahead. We really appreciated your patience and enthusiasm.”

“I had the pleasure of taking the introduction to photography class provided by Tom Wiggins.  I went from not really knowing how to operate ANY of the settings outside of the automatic mode on my DSLR camera to getting a much deeper understanding of all of the available shooting options and parameters to make the pictures I take come out more lively….This class will provide an opportunity for someone to become familiar with all of the different camera settings but it will take time and practice to nail down a great shot!  Tom is very easy to work with and you can see his passion in helping his students understand the material even after the class is done.  I am glad our paths have crossed and I do recommend this class for beginners.”

Tom the blog is awesome! Thanks so much for your help. We could NOT have done this without you. If we come across people who are interested in learning photography we will be sending them your way!

We did get a few great shots in Africa thanks to your help!!!! I will send them your way once we get them uploaded to the computer and sorted through. Also, I have a good friend going to Africa with her family and I sent your information her way. Apparently her mom got a brand new expensive camera and doesn’t know how to use it…sound familiar?!? 😉
Thanks again!

The lesson was great – Annie really enjoyed it and I think she learned a lot.  We’ll keep an eye on your other classes, and see if I can get her out of bed in time to attend.
Thanks again,

Thanks so much for the recent class.  I really felt I took away some lasting info, but, naturally I will have to devote more time to familiarizing myself w/ the mechanics of the camera.  But, I feel I am getting there….I’ll be in touch once I have moved and feel ready to get back to the camera. Thanks again for your patience,

I enjoyed the class and feel like it helped me understand my camera much more.  This was the kind of information and instruction I was hoping to get and I feel excited to keep practicing and learning from here.
