Rebecca Nash - Wow, what an experience this would be!

I have always wanted to travel to Paris and learning from Scott in a small group like this – I can only imagine what it would do for my skill level and confidence. It’s a once in a lifetime experience!

I think the hubs and I are going to have to sit down for a conversation with our budgets to see if we can make this happen.

Crossing my fingers!

April 30, 2015 - 1:11 pm

admin - Let me know how I can help make this happen for you!!

June 23, 2015 - 1:36 pm

Haleigh Perez - I have been looking for a mentor to help me with my photography. Scott is my first choice and this is my solution to make that happen. I’m super nervous about taking this step, but I know that I won’t regret it. I’ve been wanting to check out Paris so this just seems too perfect 🙂 Just gotta talk to a few people and see how/if this will work

Doing this as a hobby and take pictures of my children and grandchildren

August 12, 2016 - 12:48 pm

admin - Jose, we would love to have you. Regardless of your skill level, I work with you where you are. As long as you know how to use your camera in manual mode, you will be fine and love it! You’ll learn so much from me and others and be inspired to want to get better! It’s a fabulous experience!

Angela Patrick - Hi There,
I would possibly love to join and this would be an amazing experience. I’m wondering about the payment plan. Would I just email to sign up for that? Curious as to how that works.

November 21, 2016 - 11:34 pm

Clarisse - Hi Scott,

My husband and I would love to attend. I am unclear about the model arrangement-Private sessions with models for hire. Do you supply the model and are they responsible for the outfit, hair and make up?

November 22, 2016 - 7:52 pm

admin - Hi Clariesse, every day there will be 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of shooting/portfolio building, models included- this is no additional charge. However if you would like extra time and more private time with the models they will be available to hire too which is a steal because to arrange models would be much more expensive! Also I will have additional one on one shooting if you want. i can’t take everyone but they are optional and for an additional fee which pays for models which you will also be able to shoot at these photo walks. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

November 22, 2016 - 7:53 pm

admin - Please contact me and we can work on a payment plan that works with you!! scottrobertlim@gmail.com I would love to have you!!!

April 8, 2017 - 1:31 pm

Dana niemeier - So the airfare and hotel is separate from this fee, correct? 😉

April 8, 2017 - 2:14 pm

admin - Hi Dana, yes, airfare and hotel not included but I found a great room for around $100 USD a night! Please let me know if you have any questions!!
