  1. It's so refreshing to watch a course that's about developing as a person. What's more, I love that Joel is so generous and down to earth. Thank you for that Joel. And Mia, you did a wonderful job guiding the interview with intelligent and insightful questions -- the kind that we would ask if we could sit down over a coffee with Joel. Loved this interview and, of course, all the great advice that was discussed.

  2. It's always nice to hear from Joel. I love all of his courses, he's such an inspiring guy! Makes me want to go out and shoot more. Keep up the great work, Joel.

  3. I am not looking to make a living with photography but I do want to be able to create the photograph I have in my head - if that makes sense! I found Joel inspiring - especially the advice to not be derailed by other people and to believe in yourself. I am just beginning to believe that I do possess what it takes to be a photographer. Joel's talk has made me want to work harder to take my photography to the next level. A great inspiring course.

  4. Mia is an astonishingly good interviewer. And Joel Grimes gave me much food for thought, especially about the need for periodic re-evaluation and reinvention. Another in an outstanding series.
