Janet & Les, The workshop was the best workshop that I have ever attended. In the field, I asked both of you questions and both of you were ready, willing and able to answer them. I got the best sunrise shots that I have ever taken and learned about correcting the texture in waterfall shots and even how to swirl abstract photos. What it amounts to is I learned an awfully lot and enjoyed every day with you.
The Sunday afternoon critique was perfect. Showing us how to enhance 60 photos in 3 1/2 hours using Lightroom was the best technique I have seen in a photographic workshop. Too many of like sessions will critique photos telling what needs to be done, but not showing [participants] how to do it.
The Saucier’s “Art of Seeing” workshops are designed to help you access, and expand, your unique creative vision. And what better place and time of the year to really “see.” The Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounds in autumn can be captivating and a celebration for your eyes, your vision and your photography.

Les was my first photography mentor when I began to explore digital photography in 2005. His Lightroom workshop became the foundation for the file management and editing that I use. My creative photography skills have taken a huge step forward each time I attended one of Les’s workshops. Both Les and Janet are exceptional nature and fine art photographers with a personable touch in their teaching; as well as a philosophy that helps students find a deeper connection with nature and sense of purpose in their photography practice and the images they create. I have taken workshops with close to a dozen exceptional photographers and teachers, and the teaching style and expertise Les and Janet share put them at the top of my list!
