What David's students have said:

"Working with David was a joyful and inspiring experience!"
- Amanda Sheehan, Sacramento, CA

"The best part was that David (the instructor) encouraged us to 'play' with both photographing & developing. This allowed me to take risks and see differently"
- Frencesca Galluccio-Steele, Portland, ME

"David is a great teacher. He's patient and works with the needs of each individual student while inspiring the whole class to go beyond their expectations."

"It was such a treat to spend the week being with everyone and in the world of David Julian. I had a blast."
