Here's what people are saying about Kelli's class:

"Kelli is always motivating; his enthusiasm and energy are infectious, and he makes learning technology fun!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed Kelli's class. He introduced many different photo techniques and apps in a coherent, user friendly way. Although there were too many ideas to convey in a single day, he showed us how to follow up. I learned more than I expected."

"Kelli is very knowledgeable and approachable. We learned a lot in a very short period of time and Kelli made the day very enjoyable."

"Kelli shares his knowledge with a warmth and sense of humor. He's very prepared and makes the class a pleasant experience."

"Great instructor. I am a firm believer that being creative in almost any field is vastly aided by fun. Kelli provided that--in spades! He created an ambiance within the class that was very open and friendly, so that I enjoyed my interaction with other students."

"Kelli is the perfect guy to teach an adult education workshop. Given, he has all the requisite knowledge and skill in photography, but he also has patience and an abundance of kindness. Great job Kelli, I learned a lot and will continue to experiment with all the things you opened my mind to."

"Kelli was an excellent instructor. He was extremely knowledgeable and clear in giving the instructions."

"This class was both fun and informative. I got more information and learned much more than I expected."

"One thing I learned from Kelli in his class: his spectacular photos are not an accident. They result from his education, his innate talent, and his years of experience."
