 Here are some reviews for Richard Berry Photography workshops and photo tours.



 "Richard Berry's photography workshops are a great mixtures of excellent practical photographic teaching in beautiful and inspiring locations. They continue to expand my knowledge and skill, and for this reason I keep coming back."

Stephen Morys, Calgary


 "Thanks for the wonderful Moab trip. I especially enjoyed the Fiery Furnace hike and the moonrise shooting at Delicate Arch. To me, your dedication to photography and your willingness to share your knowledge really separate you from the other photo tour leaders. I thoroughly enjoyed your workshops, and as a matter of fact, I am trying my best to organize my vacation days to coincide with one of your workshops. So hopefully I'll be participating again in 2010."

"Thanks for a great workshop --- it was a perfect blend of theory and practical, hands on, experiences."

Jack Cohen

"Having attended Richard’s Photoshop and Lightroom workshops as well as at least 4 of his photo trips, I can recommend both. My knowledge of digital photography from capture to print has been enhanced thanks to Richard’s ability to transmit knowledge and his willingness to share his expertise. The trips are well planned - a week devoted to photography with other photography enthusiasts in exciting locations – how much more can you ask for??!!"

Jean Parboosingh, Canmore

"My understanding and experience while on your lightroom course has greatly enhanced my photography workflow. Your teaching and help has resulted in gains in my photographic endeavours. Your tradition and technology course was the greatest improvement to my photography over the last several years and took me to the next level. Thanks."

David Thompson

"Both of your photo workshops that I attended were amazing. I learned more in the two days than in any other course to date. The information was easy to understand and the class size was small with lots of time to go over items that needed further explanation. I like that fact that you were able to explain settings to eah person regardless of the model of camera they were using."

Sherry Benko

"Richard is an excellent teacher who is able to relate well with his students. His calm, patient teaching style is a breath of fresh mountain air. I recently attended his landscape photography workshop in Canmore and learned so much more about planning and preparation. I really enjoyed the locations Richard tool us to and his local knowledge of the best times and places to shoot really made for any enjoyable, informative and relaxing weekend."

Bruce Clark

"On recently attending your weekend workshop in Canmore, it was much more than expected. I thought it would be 2-3 trips to photograph, followed by some in house critiquing. What was a pleasant surprise, was the amount of classroom instruction where I picked up some very useful tips on selective focusing thru my auto focus mode of my camera. Also, the morning shoots using the neutral grad filters and being able to purchase same. I got some pictures, especially the 3 sisters under pink clouds and Mt Yamnuska reflections that I am quite proud of. The small group atmosphere was nice, as the group mixed well and by providing the breakfasts and lunches we socialized more and made better use of our class time. Thanks for an enjoyable and learning experience weekend."

Brian Hayward

"It has been a long time since I've been to a workshop where I actually felt that I had taken the next step in my understanding of photography. Your grasp of each individual's station on the learning curve & you ability to address them at that level, was amazing. Your leadership in organizing, adapting to changes in circumstances & looking at the glass half full, gave us all energy to look forward. Your teaching & empathy for fellow photogs went beyond expectation. It was truly an unforgettable experience. Many thanks."
