I recommend Angie & Ernie’s – Wonder of It All workshops without any reservation.  I left not only richer in beautiful images, but left feeling I had made life-long friends.  Every member of our workshop turned around and registered for the fall workshops.  They are a perfect balance of giving wonderful instruction and giving you the space to explore.  I always felt their focus was on the workshop attendees and not their own agenda.  I feel I am quite advanced in photography, yet learned so many tips that I am using on a day to day basis.  They have taken master naturalist classes and could give me the names of every wildflower or tree when asked.  They have researched the areas so thoroughly that when we had a small rain one morning, we still were taken to another venue and captured amazing images.  Angie & Ernie raise the bar in workshops and set the standard for an enjoyable trip and learning experience.

Dear Angie and Ernie,

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful learning experience, not to mention the fun, I’ve had in your photo workshops.  I’ve had the good fortune to be with you multiple times and each time I’ve learned more and more.

You understand how to break down the information so that even beginners understand it while not completely boring the more advanced shooters. No one is left behind and everyone goes home with valuable information and feedback.

You are highly competent, knowledgeable, open, friendly, accessible, patient and helpful. But perhaps the most important thing I gained was new friends and contacts.  It is stimulating to learn from such dedicated people.  You are always willing to share, generous on both the technical and inspirational levels.  I’ve attended workshops before where the instructors were more interested in getting their own shots than with helping those who needed it.  You have sacrificed getting the shot yourself to help me, and others, get the shot.  You have the rare combination of passion, outstanding talent, and the desire and ability to teach others.  Your abilities as photographers, your commitment as teachers, your warmth as friends are incomparable. You have a comprehensive understanding of the technical aspects of photography and are able to illustrate and explain these in a manner easy for anyone to understand.

Each time I attend one of your workshops, I am ready to go back to “work” armed with lots of new ideas and with the fire to shoot more.  I’ve learned so much and can hardly wait to start expanding my portfolio based on the knowledge you have provided.  You have inspired me to start looking at things differently.  I only hope that someday I will have the creative vision and technical skills to create great images.

Thank you for a wonderful experience!

I have been doing photography for less than a year.  I shoot with a Canon T2i camera.  I was having trouble figuring out my settings, lighting conditions, etc. . .

I had heard of your workshops/classes on photography. You provided in-field, hands-on photo instruction coupled with classroom sessions and image critiques that really helped me understand.  You tailored your instruction to meet the needs of each photographer regardless of skill level or camera equipment.  Because of attending your workshops I now feel confident of my shooting abilities. I have learned camera settings, lighting conditions, and composition along with the workings of my camera.

I will highly recommended anyone wishing to learn anything photography to take one of your workshops. You are a pair of confident instructors that went out of your way to help me learn and grow in my photography. I thoroughly plan on attending many more of your future workshops. Thank you for the experience….and a fun time was had by all!!!

This past month, I took a trip to a location from my “Bucket List”, the Canaan Valley in northeast Almost Heaven WV. I had booked a workshop with Ernie and Angie Page who know the picturesque locations in beautiful West Virginia. A word of explanation on how Canaan Valley made my bucket list; in the early eighties I worked for Union Carbide in West Virginia, I had heard of Canaan Valley as a high country ski area. Also, being married to Dianna, a West Virginia native, we have made yearly pilgrimages to Pocahontas County in Southeast West Virginia. I had read and heard a lot about Canaan Valley, but had never been there. So, I read about the Page’s workshop last December, I signed up immediately. The workshop was to visit Canaan Valley in the Fall to shoot the Fall foliage that turn early due to its higher elevation. The workshop began on a Wednesday evening with an introductory slide show by Ernie and Angie. Our group was small, with another experienced shooter and a complete newbie besides myself.  The small group had the flexibility to quickly adapt the itinerary to changing conditions and we took advantage of it by covering a lot of ground and different locations during our stay. The next morning we drove up to Dolly Sods to capture the morning’s sunrise over the rocks and heath fields, and while the sunrise sky was mostly cloudless, the high meadow of rocks and low foliage provided some interesting subjects. The next three days had up chasing locations to capture the Fall color.  Each day we could see the changes in the hillsides as Autumn did it’s thing. We shot country roads, old farmhouses and barns, a wetland area and the iconic Seneca Rocks. The Pages were great hosts, very knowledgeable and accommodating to our every photography desire. The time at Canaan Valley was memorable and the images I brought back a welcomed addition to my portfolio. I highly recommend the Page’s workshop for shooters of all experience levels.

The Canaan Valley Workshop was the first photo workshop I’ve attended and although I wasn’t sure what to expect, I was looking forward to it. I’ll have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn’t want it to end! I want to send special thanks to both Angie and Ernie for the time spent on providing instruction to a somewhat ‘newbie’ – I appreciated your patience and knowledge, as I left the workshop with so much more information than expected…THANK YOU! If you are hesitant on attending a photography workshop, hesitate no more – Angie and Ernie are down-to-earth people with wonderful personalities and not only do they make a great team, they make for a great workshop!

 I had a good time in new surroundings.  Both of you sure knew the area and although I thought the color was not at its finest, we had good pockets to work with.  The experience was great!  Ernie and Angie are both knowledgeable photographers are eager to help their students attending their workshops. They are experts in the area they are in and make sure each student is taken care of with regards to technique, questions and camera functions.  You simply can’t go wrong with this combination”

I can’t begin to tell you both how much I enjoyed your Spring in the Great Smoky Mountains workshop. It was just what I needed. Like millions of other folks, I’ve been snapping pictures for years with my handy point and shoot camera. A couple of years ago I made the big plunge and bought my first DSLR camera, a Canon 60-D. Naturally, I quickly discovered that it made little difference in the quality of my images. This was due in large part because of my reluctance to move the settings dial off of Auto. At one point I began to use the aperture priority setting. I didn’t exactly know what the term aperture priority meant, mind you, but I did see a marked improvement in my shots. Still, I hadn’t the foggiest idea what I was doing and my photos were often disappointing. That is, until I attended this workshop. Now, with the exception of my occasional absent mindedness and forgetting to remove the lens cap, I can say without question that I have a good understanding of the principles of managing and controlling light. I left the workshop with some wonderful photographs and much needed confidence that I’ll continue to use to improve my skills going forward. Not only did a learn far more than I expected, I also made new friends along the way.
