Raves from Students
“We learned a TON from Brian's workshop! Watching him during a live photo shoot was incredibly beneficial and eye-opening. We just stood back in awe. On top of seeing him in action, we were blown away with how openly and honestly he responded to each and every question asked by attendees. His laid back and fun-loving personality combined with his passion for photography was just icing on the cake! —The Bergs”

“Learning from Brian was unbelievable!! In just a few hours my perception of how to look through my viewfinder was changed forever. I wish that I had the words to articulate my gratitude. The most important thing: Brian made learning fun! I never felt intimidated or embarrassed. If you ever have the opportunity to learn from Brian Callaway or attend his workshops, do everything you can to make it happen. You will not regret it!”
“Following Brian's system makes it safer to take chances on an interesting image because you have all your bases covered, even under the inevitable time pressure that we all confront at weddings. It’s also a great way to give your couples even more than they knew they wanted by creating a lot of variety in how you tell each part of the wedding day story. I’m looking forward to some very happy clients next year if I can really integrate this system into my wedding day approach. :) ”
