FEELING THE LOVE FROM OUR FRIENDS IN THE INDUSTRY!

Bob & Dawn,

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you to you for your inspiration to me this year! I met with you both almost a year ago in Minneapolis for the TCPPA, and I can honestly say it changed my business and how I view myself as a photographer! Thanks to you two I realized I was a real photographer, not just an armature anymore, and that changed everything! I think it hit me when I realized I could follow everything you were talking about, and that I understood it. :)

After the meeting I was so inspired, I studied a lot, practiced even more, and revamped my whole business to reflect the new me... or rather the one that was there but used to be too scared to go for it. My business has more than doubled this year! I'm new in my town so it's still not a huge business, but at this rate I will be maxed out in a year or two! I still have so much to learn; I'm constantly watching tutorials, reading blogs, looking at great photos, and challenging myself to try new things with my camera, but Ive never been happier in my work! So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for investing your time and passion! I am very grateful! Blessings,

I just finished watching your DVD WOW!!! I can't wait to go and shoot a wedding now! You have (once again) inspired me, and I thank you for taking me to levels I would have never imagined possible (intentional, or unintentional). I think I liked the video of the wedding shoot in Geneva the best, it made me feel like I was there with you all the way through. The follow up fireside chats were priceless.

I checked out the DVD this morning and I was floored. The Davis Impact DVD is informative and instills passion into the viewer to become a better light seeker. Bob's knowledge of photography and his passion for capturing the story is really highlighted in the DVD and now Bob is my photography hero. Floored! Even though the DVD is all about Bob, I want to share with you that Dawn is my HERO too. Executive producer Dawn Davis should create a DVD too. Love it!

WHAT a weekend!!! It was my privilege and pleasure to have the chance to spend the weekend hanging out and shooting with Bob Davis in Virginia! It was not only a ton of fun but the most enlightening shoot Ive ever been on. (Bad pun intended) =) I really don't have anything to add to an off camera remote flash sort of email because until this weekend I never understood how to do it. Bob changed that last night, he took the time to explain what he knows and how he does what he does in a way that I could understand and by the end of the night I was rockin' the house with off camera strobes using Ratios and ETTL. If you had told me that I would get it by the end of the night I'd have laughed but Bob stuck with me and made it make sense!! It was like a 1:1 flash seminar with the master.I would have paid to go on that shoot with him!

Hey... Ben was my photo coach with Bella, what a GREAT guy! And what he described in that email about Bob, I can totally see Bob helping him like that! Can't wait to see the video, Bob has such an easy teaching style that anyone will be able to learn from him no matter what their current level is!!

CONGRATULATIONS BOB! You've proven to have a great couple of weeks with the success of your WPPI presence down to BEST OF CATEGORY winner in the PDN Top Knots competition!!! I just opened my issue to see if I really was published there and saw your name screaming out from the TOP CEREMONY page. I wasn't as honored by being published in the magazine as much until I saw that I'm just a couple pages from my first mentor. As always keep on keepin' on (as you'd say).

I totally know how Ben feels! I remember after I shot a wedding with Bob (a couple years ago now!) it was like being at an all day intensive seminar. I learned so much that day and was so excited! I really credit Bob with helping move me along as a photographer in a big way Looking forward to the DVDs (although after being spoiled with a one-on-one, I don't know if anything can compare!). Bob really has a gift for both photography and for sharing knowledge, so I'm glad to see him producing some learning materials!!

You guys create magic because you understand that to be true storytellers, you must work to establish trust and rapport with your subjects so they let their guard down and are comfortable being themselves in meaningful, intimate moments such as a wedding. Sometimes, the best way to forge that bond is to be silly and poke fun at yourself. I just love that you guys are always so real and unassuming; you make everyone feel important and valued. Simply said, you guys rock.

This is great news you guys. Our whole industry benefits because of all you do, not to mention your clients. Fantastic! I saw Bob do something with a martini glass at Gary's wedding that will forever change what I think is possible with a flashlight. Incredible. I can't wait to learn from the master.

~ Dane Sanders, Photographer & Author

I think there are so many knowledge hungry photographers out there who are craving this kind of direction. The previews show that the DVDs are so well put together. Bob is a very knowledgeable and a patient teacher and his humbleness and grace show right through. I can't wait to see the full DVDs when they are available!

I am going right now to sign us up! I am so excited for the next wedding season and THIS is going to take us to a whole new level I just know it! Just looking at the photos has got me Christmas Morning excited! By the time we see you at WPPI I bet we will have watched it a hundred times!

Cant wait! The DVDs look wonderful You are such a gifted photographer, but also a generous teacher. Thank you.

~ Amy Boyle, Boyle Jillson Photography

How exciting for both of you! This will undoubtedly allow you to be home more, travel less but continue to share like you always have. This is going to be brilliant and iIm looking forward to your insights. You are both masters in my opinion. Thanks for all you do.

Bob~ Your seminar was great! I learned so much. I am ready to start testing some of the lighting techniques that you showed us. Thanks so much for taking time to give such an informative seminar. I was so engrossed in it, that I didn't have time to freak about being jammed into a room with that crowd!
