The Nights of Wonder Workshop was one of the best I have ever attended. I consider Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka to be two of the best photographers and instructors I have had the pleasure to meet. They complement each other perfectly and make a great team. The workshop had just the right balance of classroom, field and instruction time. I learned so much during this one workshop, I will be sure to attend another. If you have an opportunity to join a workshop with Dave and/or Paul, do not hesitate!Gary Clennan
The knowledge, enthusiasm and sheer passion that Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka have for their workshops is so genuine and infectious to the rest of the group. These guys are just so openly giving with their teaching and coaching. I truly believe they want everyone to succeed as photographers and artists. I hear this all the time from so many people who have had the chance to spend any amount of time with them.T.E.
I have had the distinct pleasure of attending two workshops with Paul Zizka and Dave Brosha over the past two and a half years. Without a doubt, they have been the highlights of my photographic learning. Paul and Dave's passion for and knowledge of the art of photography inspired me to continue learning, to experiment and to be fully awake to the beauty of nature and capturing it in its finest moments. Paul and Dave fully appreciate and respect the natural world.Bonnie Pryce
