"I learned more in this on camera class than any other on camera class I've been in. Because my class was smaller sized, I felt that she provided good constructive feedback throughout, brought good energy all the time, and made me feel comfortable to be myself." (Adria Dawn, Instructor, On Camera 2).

"Great class, great teacher. I will be back to take more. She (Janelle Snow, Instructor - On Camera 2) is very knowledgeable and challenged us without going overboard. She understood everyone’s needs in the class and what we wanted out of it. She could always answer any of our questions."
