  • Chris is a FANTASTIC teacher (and photographer). He is so very very authentic, warm, REAL, talented, knowledgeable, honest, open and true to his wonderful self. This class, in addition to endless nuggets of knowledge and insights, highlights how being true to your own self makes you a better photographer- emphasizing connection, authenticity, fun and easy relaxed simple joy. A refreshing take on children's photography for sure! Thank you Chris and CreativeLive!
  • Wow, I have been in search of my style. I've been reading and researching and listening to inspiring speakers and from each one I've gathered pieces of information that help guide me. This class, however, has been the most successful for me. Chris's approach to teaching and his material that he provides is Spot On for me. Thank you, Chris. I am so inspired and eager to move forward now that I can see my vision more clearly. I highly recommend this class.
  • I really enjoy Chris' down-to-earth approach to family photography. He packed a ton of information into this course including equipment, pre-session planning, site scouting, communicating with the kids and parents, technical considerations, finding and using light, marketing, turning your passion for photography into profit, post-processing, etc. The bonus material is very useful, and I'm sure it will become part of my field photography kit. His love of family and people permeates everything he does and drives his photographic vision, and I hope to be able to incorporate many of his techniques into my work.
