  1. What a great course. Mia is such a great interviewer and Cliff is full of life experiences which he describes so artfully. I will have to listen to Cliff describe what he has captured and the circumstances that he experienced at least one more time.

  2. Best wedding photographer that I have encountered! There needs to be more courses from Cliff on Kelbytraining.com. This guy could change the way wedding photography is shot and viewed for the next 25 years. I would love to see a course that follows Cliff through an entire wedding. Lets see more of Cliff in the future, I'd be willing to pay more for my subscription!

  3. Mia is doing a great job with these interviews. She is prepared, and personable. I am really enjoying this addition of interviews to Kelby training.

  4. This was a brilliant watch. I agree totally that it can be very easy to do the same thing for every wedding but you won't do yourself or your clients any justice.
