“I really enjoyed my experience with Juan Pablo. We went through some photography fundamentals and in doing so, we were able to have some fun with some surprise elements! For example, we saw a motorcycle and were able to create a photo shoot catered towards telling its story. Overall it was a great experience and I even had the opportunity to meet his lovely wife and child. Thanks again for a great time. I strongly recommend this experience for anyone in the area looking to sharpen up a few skills and have fun in the process."
