“Taking photography lessons with Jim Borden has opened up a whole new world for me.   Jim has extensive experience in wildlife photography and a love of the outdoors which make learning fun.   From ordering equipment to enhance your experience, to showcasing your finished work, Jim has everything you need to help you reach your potential.     Whether you are looking for used or new equipment, Jim can provide links to help find just what you need.   Hands on photography sessions help you progress from whatever level you are at.   I went from a point and shoot to using a semi-professional camera body and 600 mm lens in 9 months!   There is no substitute for shooting in the field and getting immediate feedback.     He then works with editing to fine tune your work.     At first you might not think you need to edit your “perfect” pictures but distortion from camera to computer can change what you saw and tried to capture.     Editing is the final step in achieving your photography goals! Jim’s attention to detail and his striving for excellence are contagious.  I cannot thank Jim enough for opening up the world of photography for me.
