What students have to say about Sharon’s teachings:

Excellent balance of shooting and lecture time - theory and technical material. Also, the feedback on our work was truly useful. That is generally not the case in workshops I have attended. I appreciated the examples of other fine art photographers as it provides inspiration for our own work. Overall, this was the best workshop I have attended.

Over the years, I’ve participated many workshops on photography, including workshops by many “name” photographers, BUT this was honestly, one of the most enjoyable, and productive workshops I’ve attended. Thank you.

I have never met a Photography Instructor quite like Sharon!  I’ve taken two of her Photography classes at Langara College; The Long Exposure and Fine Art Photography  Courses.   Her instruction was, very detailed, clear, direct and informative.  I came into these two classes with very high expectations and came out completely satisfied.  I can say without a doubt that Sharon helped me take my photography to the next level.
