"This was an excellent program! The days were jam-packed with unrushed photo-shoots and classroom instruction and reviews. Jim Clark is a dynamic teacher and takes a sincere interest in helping each participant to improve their skills. I left this program feeling very motivated to practice new skills I learned to take my photography to a higher level. You are the best, Mr. Clark!"
"Jim Clark is a fun and extremely knowledgeable wildlife enthusiast. His passion for wildlife is contagious and his depth of photography is vast. The course is designed for those who like to be challenged with your camera and be ready for getting up at zero dark thirty to get those sunrise shots and as Jim says -- "Let's go, we are burning daylight."
"I thought I was a pretty good photographer, and I perhaps I was, but I was also a lazy photographer. Jim Clark gave me a crash course in patience and attention to detail, from equipment care to tripod use to proper light balace to focusing skills. Anyone will learn at least one new thing daily from this photographic master."

"Jim Clark is a wonderful instructor. He gave general instructions plus somehow managed to spend time with each of us. He also chose wonderful places for us to take photos. And lastly, he is simply a delightful person."
"Highly recommended -- Jim Clark is a skilled photographer who shares his knowledge of and passion for nature and nature photography with each participant, recognizing everyone's individual goals and photography experience and knowledge."
"The biggest asset this program has is Jim Clark, the professional photographer. His leadership and assistance in all matters, but particularly photography was exceptional."
This was the best Road Scholar photography workshop I have attended. The others were also very good, but this was the best because of the instructors. Jim and Mike are not only outstanding photographers, they are also outstanding teachers and experts in their field. They went out their way to make sure we learned and used the photographic techniques that were taught."
"Jim exeeded all expectations by a couple orders of magnitude. A published author, accomplished photographers, highly experienced naturalist, and expert in the Eastern Shore, there is no one better to serve as an instructor. He does do in a fun, upbeat, creative manner that engages the students and tailors the experience for each person's skill level."
"Jim is an affable man, very approachable and patient. He has a great sense of humor and has a knack for making everyone comfortable. He's a true naturalist and knows where to find animals, including the sometimes elusive ponies."
"THE BEST!!! I was happy to see that he is scheduled to lead many more of these photo trips. He is an excellent photo instructor - seems to know everything. He was well prepared, organized and always ready to answer questions. It was obvious a lot of thought went into selecting sites for us to photograph. I thoroughly enjoyed the photography experience. I have some fantastic photos from the trip. I really learned a lot and I think my skills improved."
"Jim Clark was an outstanding instructor. He had many excellent presentations during non-photo shoots in the classroom. His photographs were incredible. He was available in the field and was most helpful when I had questions in the field. He has a great sense of humor. He challenged and motivated me to try new ideas and techniques."
