I have known Vern’s work for many years. His composition, photography skills and expertise in photo printing create wonderful images. During my time as a corporate executive, his large prints lined the walls of my office and reminded me of the beautiful Eastern Sierra. I've recently taken up photography as a hobby and was able to attend his workshop, The Alabama Hills, in January 2015. Vern is a marvelous teacher! He knows the right locations to get nice photos and he takes time with each student, offering suggestions and helping us learn his methods of composition. The handouts he provides explain his process in a way that makes sense. This was a terrific experience. I have since taken his Lightroom 5 workshop and again was impressed with his teaching ability. His wife, Margaret, keeps things running smoothly with coffee, tea and yummy munchies always nearby.
