Student Testimonials

I learned a great deal in just one day and it has fired my enthusiasm to become more than just a hobby photographer. Great fun and very inspiring.

Just completed the 10 day Viewfinder trip to Costa Rica! The trip ran like a Swiss watch, and the opportunities for great photography were mind boggling! Both Matt and Dagmar provide great instruction, and look after you with enthusiasm. Highly recommended!!!

What a great day today!!! You must hear this at the end of each course, but really, it was amazing. I didn't expect to go through so much information and so many things which until now were always so vague and unclear. Now it all makes sense.

I have attended several of Viewfinder Center's courses over the years and found them excellent. Matt and Dagmar plan them well and they have always met my expectations. The free element they throw in is the group of interesting people that are there.
