Student Comments:

  • "I have attended several classes with several teachers -all talented photographers. But Kevin is the best of all of them. Great and talented photographer PLUS great teacher.
  • "For years I have wanted to take a photography class, but was reluctant because I thought it would be too overwhelming and didn't have the confidence to do it. Kevin is very thorough and made me feel very comfortable about asking any questions I had. I am so glad I finally decided to take a class and came across Kevin Gourley Photography Workshops."
  • "Kevin is truly an expert in his field. His breadth of knowledge is based on many years of fine tuning his craft and he does a great job of breaking down complex information into simple tips that even newbies can understand."
  • "Kevin is amazing at teaching his craft. He explains things in ways that are easy to understand and exciting, bringing the ah-ha moments to a reality."
