Comments from previous Road Scholar attendees:
"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."
"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."
