What a great day with Joe in the Everglades! I had been using my Nikon for point and shoot photos, and Joe rocked my world. He patiently made my camera my friend and off we went to find the wildlife. Thanks to Joe my photos of the landscape, birds, gators, a huge spider and a monarch butterfly look great. His... More

I found out about Peggy's classes in the Naples Daily News and went on one of the Naples Botanical "Almost Free" photo walks. I was hooked and have attended other almost free walks to natural and historical sites. Its a great way to learn about - in depth and with creative insight - some of the local places of interest....

We met Randi from Understanding Photography at the junction of Rt. 41. We jumped in her car, cameras in hand, and headed to her favorite spots to photograph wildlife. She was so informative taking us to places we would never find on our own. We saw all kinds of birds, bugs, plants, alligators, and a racoon came out to see... More

Our three day excursion into the Everglades hosted by Joe Fitzpatrick representing Understand Photography was an adventure beyond expectation. The behind the scenes organizing and prep work made for three days of photo shooting without a snag. I know Joe could not control the weather or nature by in large, but he did make sure we were in the right... More

When I registered for Peggy's beginner DSLR class, I was not sure what to expect. Turning the dial from auto to Manual was very intimidating! Peggy's enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for photography made it easy to get excited about taking that first "real" shot. Since the class, I've been playing with my settings and taking some great photos of the... More

I've taken several Photography Naples classes and participated in one free photo walk. Everything has been top notch. Peggy is a joy to work with–she's fun, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I've also taken a workshop with Joe and he did an excellent job. If you are interested in photography–whatever your level–this is the group to join in Naples.... More
