“I got the opportunity to spend some time with Susan and Neil at one of their workshops, and I have to say, I have honestly never seen instructors work as hard as they do to make certain their students got more than their money’s worth. They are passionate, thorough, and awfully fun teachers who are totally dedicated to giving their students the best workshop experience possible and I can’t recommend them enough. Worth every penny and then some!”

“Over the years I’ve worked with some of the most highly rated nature photography instructors & photographers in the world, including, John Shaw, the late Galen Rowell, Art Wolfe, David Muench, and many more. Susan and Neil Silverman are two of the very best teachers and shooters I’ve had the honor to work with! If you do a workshop with them, I can assure you that you will learn a lot and have a great time in the process!”

“I’ve worked with Susan and Neil quite a few times. I really enjoy working with them as an instructor, they’re very personable yet informative. Their instructive qualities are great, especially on their selected location sites. The thing I enjoy most is sharing with them the creative spirit and I look forward to doing it again soon.”

“I went back to school recently. Susan and Neil Silverman led an extremely interesting workshop on the inner working of the iPhone at the Gualala Arts Center. I have known and admired them as superb photographers and now I admire them as talented teachers. I highly recommend anybody with an iPhone catching their next workshop”
