->> I can't say enough about the coolest event for Sports Photographers. I also would like to thank Robert ,Matt, Myung, Wally, Shawn, Rod, Mike, John, Sean, Christy, Rafael, Grant, Deanna, Ian, Mike, Sara and Ron, and Dave
So much good information packed in 5 days. We started early in the morning and didn't finish until late in the evening, shooting, editing, and getting some of the best feed back. It's about being pushed out of your comfort zone and that's what these guy's did.
The speakers Dave Honl, Matt Bailey, Myung thank you for sharing your experiences and your advice It was very valuable.
Well worth the time and money. I'm starting to save for the next one.

->> I just wanted to thank everyone involved in making the Academy a reality and giving us an amazing and extremely exhausting week, especially for Nikon and Dave Honl for helping out with giving us students the ability to attend for free.

I gravitated towards using remotes a lot during the weekend, so thank you so much Ian Ray and Shawn Cullen for all the help with setting them up.

Matt, I love how blunt you are, it really helps and is changing my thought process when I shoot. This is probably one of the most valuable things I learned this past week.

Another thanks to Ian from Pocket Wizard and Nikon for letting us use your gear. Now I really know what I'm missing out on and know what I want to buy when I am ready for it.

Thank you again for everyone involved in making this happen, I plan on attending again to have more experiences with the faculty members who have shared their time with us, it was really great and I really appreciate everything you have done to help everyone improve their work. Hearing different opinions helped me refine how I approach my work.

I'm still digesting everything that happened this past week and am still recovering from the exhaustion and lack of sleep. I highly suggest being well rested before attending. And don't forget sunscreen! Every day I got burnt in a different place, it was actually amusing, but still a hassle.

Thanks again everyone!

Bert and myself put a ton of time into the workshop and it pays off when we see the photos each night. All three of you got better. Jon, blunt is good and keep you on your toes. Keep shooting and make photos.
