As I was doing chores aroud the house, I thought of a recommendation that I would write for both of you. Really, it is just to express my appreciation: I wanted to go to New England in the fall to experience the colors and learn more about digital photography. I looked online and found a workshop offered by Michael Blanchette and Ben Williamson. I checked their websites, and their work was excellent. See for yourself. They took me and the other participants to many magnificent places and great places to photograph. Mike is about my age, but he still has passion for photography. HIs organizational skills made the trip so productive, and his knowledge is vast. Ben is the kind of person who gets up before sunrise to take a chance on getting a stunning photo. He is calm, but his passion for the art is evident. He gave me gentle pointers that were very helpful to me. I also watched how creatively he approached making a photo. Their workshop was a memorable experience for me.

I have done 2 workshops with Mike Blanchette and Ben Williamson in the Fall and at the Cape and I cannot say enough positive things about them. I have learned so much about composition, processing, etc. I have been a photographer for many years and yet I have learned so many techniques during these workshops that took me to another level. Expect to work hard while in the workshop but come home with incredible pictures and a wealth of information. Mike and Ben have a keen passion about photography and an easy going way about them that makes the entire time very enjoyable. No matter what level of photographer you are, you can expect equal hands-on attention from them. At the end of the workshop, I found it hard to leave!
