Pam Baldwin was the only reason I signed up for Big Picture Classes! I have learned more from her two classes I've taken than years of online searching and fumbling trying to figure it out myself.
This is my first Big Picture class in many years. The content was very useful and Pam did an awesome job of covering the material. She shared a lot of tips and tricks that I will be playing with a lot in the future. Thanks Pam for a 5 star job on this class.

Absolutely amazing class! As a photographer this class has opened up a whole new world for my photos and memory keeping. Love her way of teaching. Everything was easily digestible and simple to understand.

This was the best class I have ever taken. It taught so much about PSE that I could never find in a book and gave me so many new ideas. Please bring this instructor back again. She is fantastic!
