They are international speakers on business and shooting and have personally instructed over 1,200 photographers at their IN-CAMERA workshops. They are Top Endorsed Pro’s by Westcott Lighting, are members of the exclusive SanDisk Extreme Team, and and have been featured speakers on creativeLIVE, Photo-Vision, WPPI, PPA, London’s SWPP, Toronto’s Exposure show, and MyWed Conference in Moscow. Their work has been published in RangeFinder and People Magazine.
We saw a free video series from them a while back where they talked about their experience with Dave Ramsey and how they got their finances in order, and it made a big impression on us.
