Andy is an excellent photographer – but he is much more than that. His technical and artistic skills with the camera are matched only by his extensive studies and field experience, not only with bird life but with all forms of wildlife. There wasn't a question that he could not answer quickly and authoritatively with explanations that were easy to understand.
Andy is passionate about his work, which was evident in the way he planned and conducted this workshop. He was always available for questions, and not once was he impatient or condescending. I was sincerely impressed by his willingness to show me, a relative newbie with the camera, how to use it to produce the best in-camera results.
As a prior student, I can attest to Andy's skills as a bird photographer! Standing next to him in the field I totally understand how hard it is to achieve an artistic photograph. Andy does it with natural ease. I am still learning. Totally worth it to learn from the master!
