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."
"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 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."
