This year’s student comments:
Thank you for a great workshop. I learned so much and now I have the understanding and language to analyze my photos. It was my number 1 goal and it was excellent! JB, Whidbey Island
Keron is so exceptional that I would pay much more to attend her workshops! MM, Langley, WA.
She is the BEST in every way! A+++++ MT, Seattle, WA
Her dialogue back and forth with students always has an amazing amount of content. Keron’s teaching style is quite remarkable – her knowledge goes far beyond photography and is beautifully integrated. JR, Seattle, WA
This was the best workshop and teaching experience I have ever had. Keron is compassionate, honest, highly skilled and inspiring! MW, Freeland, WA
Keron is a warm, affirming human being and an excellent teacher who genuinely supports each student in creating their unique photographic vision. She is an inspiring photographer and author who brings to her students a great appreciation and knowledge of painting as well as photography. It was a great privilege and a very rewarding experience to get to know her as an instructor as well as a person. BL, Edmonds, WA
About Keron and Arthur as tour leaders:
Keron and Arthur…there is no way that a simple number reflects the fabulous time that I had in Prague and Istanbul. This tour has provided me with a lifetime of memories that will never be forgotten. I am grateful to both of you for providing such a multitude of varied experiences that allowed me to immerse myself into the cultures of both venues. I am especially appreciative of the historical and political perspectives that our guides shared during the tour of individual venues. My heartfelt thanks to you, both. ~Gretchen Taylor, Seattle
Visiting and photographing Portugal with Aurthor and Keron provided a mix of photography, history, food, and fun. Aurthor’s wit and Keron’s graciousness set the tone for the whole group and they were always there for additional information or inspiration. It was a perfect trip and I left with new knowledge, new memories, new photographs, and new friends. ~Nancy Lehrer, Los Angeles

More about Keron as an instructor:
Best thing about the instructor? Her great depth of knowledge and wonderful open teaching style. ~ Student, PNWAS
I have been to work shops in the past. It seems to me that it was model, shoot, model shoot, with not much else in between. Keron’s workshop is completely different. You go in with expectations of great horses and time to shoot. You leave feeling like part of an extended family. There are models but more, much more than that, there is talk of art, seeing the light, and you end up with an appreciation of time. The workshop flows from morning shooting to uploads and edits, talk of fine photographers and a nice lunch. Then back to the shoot and then edit and conversation and then back to shoot. Time flows with each bit filled with information and lovely images. Keron not only draws on her own knowledge but the knowledge of every experience she has had and shares it all. I personally met some really nice people, shot some fabulous horses and models in a lovely location but more importantly, with the knowledge I gained both in conversation and after care (not just follow-up but CARE) I learned so much. It fundamentally changed my photography and what I learned in Keron’s workshop is still evolving. Keron is a gifted photographer and an excellent teacher, I would encourage photographers at any experience level to take one of her workshops. ~Marcie Lewis, Santa Rosa, CA
Keron has taken my photography skills to a new level of expertise. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and truly dedicated to assisting her students in accomplishing their photography goals. I have seldom found such an inspiring teacher. ~Marie Plakos, Whidbey Island, WA
While many people can articulate what they like or dislike about an image, you are able to give specifics that are attainable. Your critique consistently demonstrates your sophisticated aesthetic. Your willingness to share your technical skill as well was greatly appreciated. When you do share technique, you do it in a way that is sequential and easily understood. Thank you for your perspective and skill this week! ~Tacey J., Coupeville, WA
Keron Psillas, who assisted Arthur Meyerson, is superb. Great photographer, generous with all her broad knowledge, and commented astutely about participants images. Take a workshop with her! ~participant, PNWAS, 2012
