Just took another trip organized by Peggy to the Dome Homes. Throughout the excursion, she shared tips to take better photos. I have learned much from her and look forward to continue to grow as a photographer with her and the company's guidance. Looking forward to my next women's trip in the winter!

I have taken both Peggy's photography class in her studio/walking about Naples shooting photo session & her more intensive online course. I am beyond thrilled at how my photography has improved! Peggy is also as pleasant as can be, and a great photography instructor. Her 4 week online course (1 time per week for about 2 hours) is easy to... More

Oh my! Thank you so much, Allison! What a nice review. We REALLY appreciate it!! Yes - the online course is also a LIVE course, with lots of support and homework to help the information really sink in. We've added more day tours and trips this season as well! Thanks again, Allison! More

Peggy is a wonderful teacher. My daughter, daughter-in-law, and I came to Naples for a weekend of learning how to work our cameras. Peggy has a great house which she rents out as a bed and breakfast. We each had our own beautiful room. Peggy is a very patient knowledgable teacher. We took photos of the pier, went on a... More

I attended a ladies photography retreat weekend with Peggy. She is fun, kind, patient, and very knowledgeable. I learned so much about how to shoot in Manual. She had many interesting and fun photo shoots for us planned the whole weekend. My brain is full! I highly recommend her to both novice and more experienced photographers.

Our guide was Joe Fitzpatrick of Understanding Photography. A four day excursion from Naples to St. Augustine. We began each day at the Alligator Farm Bird Rookery. The weather was perfect and the nesting birds and chicks were very cooperative. Afternoons were spent touring the city and visiting photographic sites. Joe took us down side streets that presented photo exposure... More

The weekend is filled with improving your photography techniques and learning new ones. It is a great way to learn how to use many of your setting on your camera. You also get the opportunity to learn HDR and Photoshop. Peggy is a great instructor!

An absolutely no-stop weekend of learning photography techniques, taking photos, post processing and just lots of laughs. Peggy is the best! Trip was well organized and schedule was well followed.

Brian was an excellent guide. His knowledge about photography and cameras was extensive so we spent a fair amount of time getting to know - a little better - how our individual cameras work. We walked a bit and got some history about Naples, and the Old Naples area in particular. The evening was unusual in that a fog was... More
