"I would highly recommend the retreat to others. It will take you places you never imagined. I came with doubts about my abilities and left with a renewed respect for myself as a photographer, and now as an artist. Kathleen leads and teaches with no judgment, and you are able to create your own dream and vision. Having the retreat in the beautiful land of Hawaii is a plus, not only for the beautiful location, but for the restorative time as well."   --Jill King

"I've been to many photo workshops, and this one has the best blend of shooting excursions, studio time, working with models, and relaxation that I've experienced. The locations were incredible and we were able to go during the best times for shooting. The food was wonderful. The retreat left me feeling revitalized, relaxed and renewed. I look forward to coming back. "  -- Carol Schiraldi

"Kathleen's style of teaching is so natural, I never felt inferior or intimidated. She was so helpful to me in showing how much potential I have as a photographer. I have come away with so much more knowledge than I was expecting. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge."   --Linda Taylor

"An amazing week that I will never forget. I feel so creatively replenished, and I'm going home with a whole new body of beautiful work. Every day we were presented with authentic Hawaiian experiences and opportunities to photograph so many magical places on the island. It was so much more than I could have even expected."   ---Alba Wejebe

"Thank you so very much for the best work/retreat experience I have ever had...it was truly wonderful. You created an environment that I felt safe to do what I love doing. For the first time in my life, I left calling myself an artist...I had never referred to myself as an "artist" before last week."   ---Barbara Bond
