David and Jennifer are two outstanding people, photographers and workshop leaders. They are there for you and you only. They keep the groups very small and are always available, They know the locations intimately so they always have a plan B to deal with whatever the weather deals us. Just finished two workshops with them in short order (this is my third one with them), and can't wait for the next trip. Keep up such amazing standards.

I participated in the Anza-Borrego workshop this month led by David and Jennifer. It was a very enjoyable workshop and my expectations were exceeded. Both leaders were very welcoming and took good care of every workshop participant. The attention to detail was outstanding and every activity ran very smoothly. Both David and Jennifer have done a great deal of preparation in scouting the best sights providing the group with the best photographic experience possible. David's professional guidance helped me to take my landscape photography to the next level. I benefited greatly from David's picture critique session, an innovative workflow discussion and Lightroom and Photoshop sessions. Both hosts are very passionate about their work, nature, and environment and are dedicated to providing the best learning experience to their clients. Thank you, David and Jennifer, for the wonderful experience! Looking forward to the next workshop with David and Jennifer.

This workshop in Death Valley was simply amazing! David and Jennifer are the quintessential workshop leaders and had an exceptional agenda worked out for us. As they spend considerable time scouting out their locations in advance (sometimes living there for months), their knowledge about the best spots and times is unparalleled. They don’t’ take you where all the tourist and other photographers are either, so many times you have the place to yourselves. They are also able to pivot quickly to adjust the agenda if weather or other factors dictate. During down times, David and Jennifer had training and critique sessions in a local hotel board room. These were excellent and I learned many new techniques. The other photographers in the group were so friendly and we all had a great time. I can’t say enough good things about this workshop. I am still buzzing about it five days later. Looking forward to my next workshop with David and Jennifer!

This was my first workshop with David and Jennifer and it certainly won't be my last (Can't wait for the Grand Tetons in 2020). Even with the fall colors arriving late in the Ridgway area of Colorado they still managed to find great and interesting subject matter for the group to photograph. They are truly great individuals that do care about the workshop participants and go out of their way to ensure that you have a great and safe experience. They are extremely knowledgeable and they do their utmost to share that knowledge with you without being overbearing. They were always available to answer any questions you may have and offer encouragement when needed. I came away feeling more confident in my abilities and excited about continuing on my photographic journey. David and Jennifer are the best and I am looking forward to future workshops with them.

A workshop with David and Jennifer is like having a personal trainer for intense three-a-day workouts four days in a row. Wake up early for the sunrise photo, spend mid-morning through mid-afternoon learning the ins and outs of post-processing, then close the day with a sunset shoot. Just like a good trainer guides you through a personalized routine, David and Jennifer tailor their instruction to the individual. The beginner as well as the seasoned photographer can learn from this dynamic duo. Their knowledge of the landscape alone is worth the investment. Each shooting location was paired with forecasted weather conditions. Storm clouds or clear skies, dramatic light or flat, David and Jennifer guided us to just the right grand landscape and to the perfect small scene. And when the weather changed unexpectedly, they pivoted expertly. As a result, I captured more portfolio-worthy images in four days than I have in the last four years. To boot, David and Jennifer are personable. They were my teachers and my trainers, but they've also become my friends. I can't wait to book another workshop!

The student always comes first

There are good photography workshops and bad photography workshops, and David and Jennifer are among the best. Small session sizes, extensively researched locations and intimate knowledge of the area, easy going and friendly, and the ability to determine your strong and weak points and work with them to make you a better photographer. They're not there to get their own photos, they make sure you're getting the best pictures you can. I've seen some workshops where the instructors turn their students loose to fend for themselves, but that's not what you'll get here. Always available, and always offering tips without being overbearing, David and Jennifer are the best.

This was truly one of the best workshops I have attended. David and Jennifer are attentive, knowledgeable teachers, and two of the nicest people you will meet anywhere. I found the workshop to be an excellent mix of field time and classroom time, and I came away feeling more confident in my ability to take photos with strong compositions, and edit them properly afterward. I will happily take part in future workshops with them any time, any place!

Paul

This was my third workshop with David and Jennifer but my first time to Death Valley National Park. I have attended workshops by other photographers and I feel that you will not find a better environment for learning than David and Jennifer are able to create. They make every effort to accommodate a wide range of experience levels. If you need basic instruction or want space to create on your own they are very sensitive to those needs. I have not found a student on any of the workshops who did not have a very positive experience and a high opinion of their workshops. Along with being very accomplished professionals, David and Jennifer are both genuinely thoughtful, interesting and fun people to spend time with!

Had a wonderful experience with David and Jennifer in Silverton, CO. Great location for wildflower, waterfall and nature photography. Both David and Jennifer are terrific people who run a good workshop and are attentive to there customers. They offer great advice and their first priority is that everyone in the workshop has a safe and enjoyable experience. I really appreciated them, their knowledge and their help.

If you are a fanboy/girl of a famous photographer and want to be in a large workshop group with other fanboys/girls of said photographer, then move along; Exploring Exposure is not for you. If you are looking for a small group experience where you the client is the raison d'être for the workshop, then you will be delighted. David and Jennifer are intimately familiar with each workshop location and work hard to provide you with every opportunity to accomplish the stated goals of the workshop and most importantly, the goals that you may have set for yourself. They eagerly want to know how they can help you, and what you are interested in learning how to do. With other big groups, there can be a loss of accountability, with David and Jennifer no client ever gets left behind, literally. I have seen how they assure that everyone gets a good experience even if a client has to moderate what they are able to do. You will always be accompanied by an instructor. Every individual is valued. It "don't get no betta dan dis"! It occurs to me as I am writing this that I may have become a fanboy/girl of Exploring Exposure, but that's a good thing.

This was a great workshop. A few things that I really appreciated: David sent handouts ahead of time, this allowed me to look over the material and make a point to ask about things I did not understand. Sometimes during the presentation, the amount of information can become overwhelming to process. Both David and Jennifer were easy to approach and ask questions. Like many other reviewers have stated, they are there to help you. I liked that we got to do both, take photographs and edit. I learned quite a bit about Lightroom. The small group size was nice. One felt like, you got the one on one attention time to ask questions. Definitely recommend a workshop with Exploring Exposure.

Sejal

I have attended several workshops, and this one ranks at the very top for several reasons. David and Jennifer are awesome photographers, very passionate and helpful. They are always available to assist you in every aspect of your photography, on the field and in post. They went out of their way to change our schedule because of weather conditions, and that was truly appreciated by the entire group.

Giancarlo

This was my first workshop with David and Jennifer, and I had a great time. Both were very helpful and available for questions and advise. They know the area well and we visited many different locations throughout Anza Borrego State Park and Borrego Springs. I look forward to my next adventure with them and will recommend them to my friends.

Alice

First class experience. David and Jennifer provided the exact right mix between support and freedom, instruction and relaxation. It's hard to imagine a better workshop. I learned about the absolute critical importance of great light. And I realized more powerfully than ever before the importance of careful composition. I am now a confirmed tripod-using, exposing to the right, (for me, black and white) photographer. Be sure to go on a workshop with these gentle, knowledgeable people.

Bob Feldman

This was my first photo workshop. I didn't really have any expectations going in but when it was over, I was sad it was over. I had a wonderful time with the group. David and Jennifer are very knowledgeable and patient. The weather didn't always cooperate but they were flexible in the scheduling and got us out to some really cool locations. The between shoot post-processing sessions were extremely educational. I finished the course a better photographer than when I began. I can't recommend it enough.
