“It’s one thing to visit amazing places but another to really capture the way you felt when you were there. That is the great challenge of photography and certainly my goal as a photographer. Shane McDermott helped me make, take a big step toward that objective when I had the opportunity to work with him in Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra.
Shane helped me in both “right brain” and “left brain” ways. He helped me simplify my process in the field, which for me was an important step. Shane has the ability to think about complex problems in very simple ways, which helped me get to the essence of what needs to happen to capture an exceptional image.
On the more artistic side, working with Shane helped me develop a better sense of colors, layers and compositions. He helped me develop a better ability to transfer breathtaking sights into breathtaking pictures.
Perhaps most importantly, attending a workshop with Shane McDermott was inspiring for me. Shane gave me some very practical skills, an increased development of my artistic sense and a large dose of inspiration for my next photography trip.”
