“Eric’s knowledge of photography is profound. In fact, it’s close to being encyclopedic. He’s also an outstanding photographer. But what makes him such a great resource for those of us wanting to improve our own skill set is his ability to share and impart his knowledge. Eric is a natural teacher.
Through both private instruction and seminars Eric has helped me exploit the potential of my own camera, and make the most of photographic software. In doing so, he has helped me to make better pictures and amplified my love of photography. I don’t think you ever stop learning to be a better photographer and I will continue to look to Eric for guidance, insight and inspiration.”

“It seems to me – not only with respect to cameras, but also with almost any kind of technological device – that the User Manuals are terribly deficient; they are disjoined, they are not intuitive or easy to follow, they fail to provide context, and they fail to recognize just how little a novice purchaser may know about the particular tool or toy they have just acquired. Your guidance through both private instruction and workshops have provided me with a much needed link to reality, versus the opaqueness and obtuseness of my camera’s User Manual.
The workshops I attend are gradually making a dent in my knowledge gap respecting my new camera, and it is exciting to see how many options there are to accomplish one or another effect in any given photograph. Your services are invaluable to someone genuinely interested in photography.”

“Learning with Eric is a real pleasure, whether in matters of Photoshop, photographic technique, or printing. His knowledge and understanding is extensive, down to the most subtle of details. And he conveys this in a completely patient and relaxed manner, so that I always feel at ease in progressing at my own pace.”

“Eric was amazing to work with for our wedding pictures. His diligence in understanding our needs and what we wanted him to capture during our ceremony put our mind at ease and upon just seeing the initial proofs we knew that we had made the right choice all along. He is not a photographer, but rather and artist and regardless of the project that he is asked to partake in, his artistry come through.”

“Eric is an excellent photography instructor. He takes what can be complex material and breaks it down into manageable segments so students learn without the usual frustration of being overwhelmed by facts and numbers, so science can become art when put into practice. This applies to both camera and lighting work as well as learning post-production techniques of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Eric’s ability to connect with students of all abilities and ages is invaluable; as a teacher he is able to impart a great deal of knowledge concisely and with clarity. I have taken many classes and workshops with Eric as well as field trips and always come away having learned a new technique to improve my work and bring it to the next level. Eric comes highly recommended by this student who is also professionally involved in the world of photography, and I look forward to working again with him in the future.”

“Over the past several years I have come to know and admire Eric’s photographic knowledge and skill. I have consulted with him numerous times about choice and use of equipment, and at each session he has been thorough and helpful. I have also attended a number of his workshops which were well organized, interestingly presented, and I have been a constant admirer of his photographic work, both at formal shows and over the counter chats.”

“I sought out Eric’s help after buying a camera online and realizing that I had no idea how to use it, as I am technologically challenged to put it mildly! After only a few private sessions, I was confident that I could use my camera on an upcoming trip. I was delighted with Eric’s knowledge and patience and thrilled with the photographs from my trip. I still have a great deal to learn, and I look forward to Eric’s continued tutelage.”

“I met Eric strictly by chance. I needed help finding the right equipment and more importantly understanding how to use it correctly. I have found over the past few years that Eric is an extremely patient teacher. He has guided me in the right direction helping improve my skills and has guided me into the right products never taking for granted that relationships are built on trust. I highly recommend Eric’s workshops. If you are serious about improving the quality of your photography, look no further. Eric provides a high quality service.”

“I signed up for a package of instruction that Eric offered designed to help a developing photographer learn about Photoshop and Lightroom. Eric’s coursework helped me to rapidly become adequately proficient to print photographs with colors that were accurate and to set the print controls to utilize high quality photographic papers. Eric has been exceedingly accessible when issues came up, be it my choosing the wrong setting for a specific paper or how to use a flash to take candid photographs. The Kaz Art’s program and Eric’s counsel are terrific.
When I have time, the next project will be a photo workshop to work on composition.”

“Being in the catering business I have found that photographs are very valuable to our potential clients. With this in mind, I wanted to capture our food and rooms myself as I would want our clients to “view” our work. I hired Eric on a couple of occasions to assist me in capturing exactly what I was after.
Eric remains my family’s Photography Guru as we know that when we need help he is always available. If you would like to see much of the work he and I have done to date you can visit our web site at www.frungillo.com.”
