Brian Loflin LOVES to teach and he has what it takes to be an excellent
teacher. His depth and breadth of knowledge, not only of photography
but of his subjects, is amazing. Having known Brian for a few years, I
find him to be generous with his time and knowledge and he works
tirelessly to provide the very best learning experience. Beside that he is
just plain fun! –Linda Sheppard

What a GREAT workshop! Well prepared and executed. So many
opportunities to get great shots of a number of species--especially the
Green Jay and Roadrunner. Thanks for all of your expertise and hard
work. Definitely worth the money and the drive. --Kathy McCall

Brian put so much work into this workshop, it was amazing! He took
care of absolutely everything that you could imagine, meals, lodging,
bird attracting set up, and always making sure that we were
comfortable. At times there were so many birds around us, you didn't
know which shot to take first. We all had a great time, and I am ready to
go back again! --Cheryl Callen

This workshop was exactly what I'd been needing. Brian helped me
"make friends" with my gimbal attachment, and I finally learned how to
set my camera for shooting both sitting and flying birds. The result
was some very nice images, and we all had a lot of fun learning! The
blinds at the ranch exceeded my expectations. –Rose Epps

Brian, this was an awesome workshop! You did a fantastic job! It was
amazing how you were able to call the birds in...and the coyote! The
food was great; the accommodations very comfy, and the itinerary very
do-able! I would not have changed a thing...except maybe add one
more day. I would have liked more raptor time. But, I'm so very pleased
with the number of birds we saw and heard! And photographed! What
a great photography workshop! –Jane Kelley

Thanks to Brian for the extensive preparation that he did for the South
Texas bird workshop and always does for classes and meetings, as
well. Brian has expansive knowledge and photographic expertise. On
top of that, he is a very capable communicator and teacher who shows
much interest in his students. He goes above and beyond what you
would expect in order to make the learning experience worthwhile and
memorable. Our South Texas trip was first rate! –Nancy Naylor
