Thank you Don Gaetan for sharing your time, photography experience and knowledge with me. I really appreciate all the details and insights that you gave me to improve my shooting. All those little details needed, to take great pictures. Thanks to you I'm ready to go back into photography, as it is very especial and unique to me.Feb 25, 2015
I great enjoyed our time together on the one on one lesson I had with you. You made me feel comfortable and explained everything very clearly to me. I only wish we could have covered more new material. My lesson with you mainly confirmed concept I already had understanding of. I feel I was not clear on what I wanted to learn and this is possibly why the material was slightly redundant. I hope to return for future lessons as I do have interest in seeking a career in photography and feel you can assist me on that quest.Feb 28, 2015
I had the opportunity to take a photography course taught by Manuel Gaetan. Our class was comprised of all levels of photographers and Manuel addressed everyone's needs. He encouraged us to ask questions. He was interested in helping us improve our photography skills. He was a motivational instructor and worked toward helping us learn how to turn good pictures into excellent ones. He provided critiques of our photographs, telling us what we did well and how we could improve. I highly recommend him and hope to take another class from him in the future.Mar 2, 2015
I have the good fortune of participating in Manny Gaetans digital photography class at the Lourie Center in Columbia. The course is geared toward amateur photographers, beginning with a request for students to submit the type of camera we use so that the instructor knows our equipment capabilities. The following sessions have been loaded with dynamic power point presentations, practical suggestions for composing photos and operating the camera/camera settings, and one on one critique of student photo submittals all to assist students in achieving his stated mission of helping us with "making good photos into excellent photos. Very nice experience for me!Feb 24, 2015
I had a wonderful experience working with Manuel. His technical knowledge is superb and he was very patient while working with me. I knew very little about photography when I started working with Manuel 3 years ago. I am now working full time as a professional photographer, thanks to the skills Manuel taught me.Sep 8, 2013MGR Enterprises, LLC's reply
You are very kind Jenna. It was a pleasure working with an intelligent and dedicated person as you are. That you are making a successful career in photography today, comes to me as no surprise.
