From the Autumn in the Aspens Photo Adventure
" I will preface this by saying that in the past years I have been on a half dozen photo workshops led by the top professional photographers in the industry. They have been from the east coast to the west and many locations in between. I can say that without a doubt, Dusty Doddridge’s workshop was un-categorically the absolute BEST workshop that I have been on. None of the others come close. He was totally prepared, he made sure that you got the best photos possible, and did so with inspiring enthusiasm."
" Dusty was always there to answer questions, and continually provided input, suggestions, and encouragement. He has a complete understanding of all of the finer points of photography, including excellent composition, and is eager to share. He was willing to work with us on our digital darkroom skills with endless patience and guidance. His experience was a tremendous asset."
" I do not know how he could have been better prepared. He provided us with numerous handout packages covering all aspects of equipment, food, traveling, logistic, photographic capture and several digital darkroom approaches that were garnered from the best professional photographers in the field. I was not only satisfied; I was shocked at the thoroughness of his resources."
" Very Satisfied! Good God, I've got 2000 images and almost all of them are usable!"
--Henry S. and Tom B.
From the Zion and the SW Photo Adventure
"I wanted to thank you for providing me with such a great experience on the Southwest Photo Adventure last month. The help and instruction you provided me before, during and after the trip resulted in a portfolio of pictures that I could not be happier with. I especially appreciate the amount of time you spent working with me on an individual basis to ensure that my specific goals, such as night photography and improved technical understanding of my camera’s capabilities were met. The compositions and sharp details in these pictures were things I could never achieve before the workshop. The preparation, incredible and diverse locations, and easy, fun company also made this an exceptionally memorable experience. The trip exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to join you on another of your workshops!"
From the Great Smoky Mountains Photo Adventure
"I learned a great deal and , most important, had the opportunity to apply all the instruction in the many scenes you brought before us. Your simple and straight-forward strategy approach to focus and exposure set the stage for an extremely successful learning experience. I certainly had ample opportunity to put your instruction to use and produce some impressive and precise photos. You made it so easy and it worked so smoothly."
" I could not have asked for a more productive photo tour. The instruction, the photo ops, the camaraderie – all created a most treasured four days."
"Instruction and quality were excellent!"
-Gary S. and John P.
From the "Composition: Art in the Landscape" Presentation
" I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the excellent presentation you made last night at the SANP meeting. I truly enjoyed it and came away wanting much more. I have never heard a presentation on composition delivered in the format that you used and for me it came across in a clear and concise manner. Your structured, systematic approach to taking a picture is outstanding. Your photo examples and the questions you asked about each of them really helped drive home the two points you emphasized all night-Design elements and Composition strategies. I have a few books on composition and they don't even come close to presenting the subject the way you did last night. "
