"Alan Kesselhaut's workshop was marvelous. He's informative as well as entertaining. I immediately went home and tried some of his suggestions. He's very generous with answering personal questions and giving much needed advice." CB
"Alan is very professional and personable and does a great job of sharing his insights and making sure everyone is getting good shots.

"This special Grand Central Terminal event was incredible, and Alan was extremely helpful and patient with my many questions." Brian
"I had read articles on Lightroom and watched the Adobe Youtube videos, but things made much more sense when I was able to follow along with Alan on my laptop...it was so helpful to have the opportunity to ask questions in a supportive environment. Alan is phenomenal. He knows his stuff inside and out. If he doesn't know something, he will research it and get back to you. He is also exceedingly personable and enthusiastic." Joe
"Alan was great. I liked that he kept saying 'please ask questions, I'm not a mind-reader', and that he came up to students throughout to see how they were getting on. It's given me confidence and excitement about photography. Great tips on composition, and Alan would point out interesting things such as reflections that I wouldn't have otherwise noticed. I think it has made my pictures more interesting." Hannah
