"Wow! If you want to meet a dedicated speaker, you gotta meet Alisha Cline. In preparing for her workshop she loaded her car with props so that the attendees would have the opportunity to be hands on and create their own sets. She answered questions about everything from safety in dealing with babies to safety when staging the set, discussed lighting, and extended the scheduled time so that we could play longer (with building our sets) and make more questions! Thank you Alisha for going above and beyond!
We also had the generous support of Millers Professional Imaging, Photobiz, and our very own Vintage Now Modern, a super cool antique store in downtown Greenville."
-Sabina CavalliProfessional Photographers of South Carolina Alisha has always been dedicated to education and giving back. It's one thing to have a speaker come to simply instruct, it's another to have them come and invest in your group. She took the extra time to add things to the class that would allow anyone in our area to apply the knowledge, but even more then that, she went above and beyond by helping attendees all throughout the event. For her it doesn't stop when her instruction concludes, it continues throughout the entire event and after. Thank you for being such a giving and thoughtful instructor to all those who wish to grow in this industry. -Rachel EdgingtonProfessional Photographers of Missouri
