Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The amount of love and devotion, not to mention time and energy that you put in, really shows in our wedding video. So many people have given us compliments on the video and photos, and we are eternally grateful for everything you have done for us!

My first class with Kim was Landscape and Nature and going into it I wasn’t sure what to expect.  What I found was that Kim enjoyed sharing her knowledge with others.  No matter the question, Kim was able to answer.

In regards to class content, I especially enjoyed viewing photos from some of her favorite photographers, and the thought process behind the shot. I enjoyed the class so I decided to continue on to the night photography class.  There I really enjoyed our “field trip” and shooting at night. Kim really helped me to understand lighting after sunset, and even helped me to understand my own personal camera a bit more.

I would definitely recommend taking these classes with Kim. They’re very informative, structured, and enjoyable.

Kim brings her personal, and training experience to class. Her teaching style is comfortable, and she speaks easily to all levels of photographer experience. Kim is clearly experienced, and very passionate about her work. She references several photographers, styles, techniques and equipment. I had some basic photography training, (years ago), and I was looking for a class that could fill in the gaps, help me improve and to be more creative. This class was a good choice for me. I most appreciated the instruction related to composition. We took our own photos over the week, and later reviewed them in class. Kim would offer technical advice, and constructive critique, (if needed), to help make the shot better. I would recommend this class, and I look forward to upcoming classes, (“Wildlife Photography”).

I took a one day class with Kim because I felt I needed to get back to some basics with my camera and settings. I felt as though I developed some bad habits and was becoming too dependent on post processing to rescue my photos. Kim was great. She is so knowledgable and friendly. She quickly made everyone in the class comfortable and no question went unanswered. I still keep in touch with Kim and will not hesitate to take another class with her.

On the day of, [Katherine] and Kim couldn’t have been more amazing! We had a very short window of time to get a lot of shots and their ability to fit everything in, was unbelievable. Throughout the day they were there shooting every moment but you wouldn’t even have known it! We got our photos within 4 weeks of the wedding and they are absolutely gorgeous! They captured our day perfectly and just looking at them gives me the same feeling of joy I felt that day. Thank you Katherine and Kim for doing such a fantastic job! We will cherish these beautiful memories forever!

Kim Clune’s class has taught me more in one day than a several series of online classes. She knows exactly what she is talking about and knows exactly how to convey her knowledge to the students in such a way that allows everyone to learn. I needed assistance in taking my film photography knowledge and translating it to the digital world. No question was to small for Kim to answer. Her passion for photography is contagious and it is what makes her such a terrific teacher. She is a gem and certainly do not delay in learning from her. The class gave me the tools to enjoy photography again instead of being frustrated by new technology.

I really enjoyed the wildlife photography class with Kim at The Arts Center in Troy.  Kim clearly knows what she is talking about and she shares her enthusiasm with the class.  Class sessions were well-organized and Kim was happy to tailor the material to the interests and abilities of the students.  The discussions in class and the homework helped me think about my own style of photography, why I enjoy doing it, and how I want to further develop my skills.  Overall I feel like I learned a lot from Kim and would be happy to take another class with her.
