Students say,

Micah was very good at remembering our goals for each of our images. He was able to help us with things beyond the scope of this course once we had understood the basics/ He was very clear in his instruction too. I felt he had a genuine interest in our success.

The feedback helped me think about my photography & explore what kind of photographs I want to take.

I am more confident taking/developing pictures.

Micah is very engaging + draws in a lot sources to back up his discussion on framing, content, technique etc. Lots & links to research which he has shared. Lots of encouragement.
