  • We had such a great time with Malinda on Saturday for our 1 one 1 class with a friend. We learned so much from her in the 2 hours that we spent with her. I have been taking pictures for years and have always used AUTO. I will never go back to AUTO, I never dreamed I could take such great pictures. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to expanded there camera knowledge she is very friendly and most definitely patience.
  • Highly recommend classes to anyone! Malinda is a great teacher. She is super sweet and friendly. She shares her knowledge of 25 years experience and gives you useful information that will impact your photos. I learned so much in just one class and look forward to our next class.
