‘Seth, you have created a reputable brand with your workshops. I can contest to that and I have been to a few different workshops. Yours was one of the best I’ve been to. It was a learning experience from the start to the finish in post processing. Most workshops are for portfolio building but didn’t explain why we were doing what we did. I always tell other photographers about my experience at your workshop.’ ~ Troy Tribble, Photography

‘Seth.. What I do is try to learn from every photographer to create my own style. I’m not sure if I really have a style, but I think my voice is consistent in a lot of my work. What you do is way beyond my comprehension so instead of trying to copy it like a lot of other photogs try doing, I just look at the composition and expression and take those points home as to what makes a good picture. I think so many photogs miss the “expression” and “feel” of images. There’s a feel that I like about your work that is independent of all the technical aspects of it.’ ~ Daniel Patrick McBride, Photographer

‘Seth, I was most impressed by the workshop. A steal for the money invested. I learned a ton about lighting and how simple it can be instead of the 5 headed monster I have tried to make it. Posing is something I struggle with. It was obvious that some of the girls knew what to do and how to do it in front of the camera. For those who were a little lost, you directed them into very natural and provocative poses. I read you loud and clear on the topics. The lighting and posing were just what I was seeking. Really looking forward to doing an outside shoot at the next one and seeing how you do that. I have several friends who were upset that they didn’t know about this. They will next time. I have been teaching photography since the early 80’s. None of mine was about strobes or lighting but either the basics or composition or nature or similar. I feel like you opened up several windows of opportunity for me this weekend. I just need to get my lights out and do some trial runs before launching off into this. Again, THANKS for a great day of learning. It was fantastic! ‘ ~ Jim Griggs, Photographer

‘Seth, NRG at KC workshop was awesome, great people, great workshop, great shoot. With a dozen or more photographers in attendance you were cool and conducted a very clear presentation. The variety and complexity of the questions that you received and the clear concise replies were enlightening to say the least. The use of a light meter with reflector and flash and the correct balance ratios made my day. Thanks for the help while I was shooting multi lights in the afternoon, your suggestion of lowering the umbrella made a positive difference. I spoke with several photographers and they all appreciated your workshop. Hope to shoot with you again soon. Sincerely, ‘ ~ Bill Russell, Photographer

‘Seth, I think the workshop in Denver event helped me learn and improve on my studio lightning. You were excellent in coming around and helping me when I needed it. Actually, I have some questions for you in the area of after shoot editing, specifically Photoshop. I notice your pictures are so crisp and clean. I know that has one part to you with your lighting techniques, but is there anything specific in Photoshop you do to help make your photos pop? Thanks again for your help and I hope to work with you again soon! ‘ ~ Carlos Burger, Photographer

‘Seth, I definitely got inspired and learned a hell of a lot at the Denver event! Mainly, to travel light to events like these (speed lights that is). Also to look for many different angles to shoot from. The personal help you gave me while I was shooting the models was invaluable. Your workshop and presentation was very good. Thanks Seth. ‘ ~ David Bowers, Photographer

‘Seth, Your seminar in Fayetteville, AR was everything I had hoped for, clear and to the point. The demonstrations of lighting equipment for model shots and showing us how you get those beautiful lighting ratios was beyond exciting. I have all the equipment, I had never thought of using the way you do, I put your lighting techniques to work at the “AR” shoot and am very pleased with the result. Thanks also for the tips while I was setting up, I noticed you gave the seminar photographers a little extra attention while they were shooting, that was nice! Your information on directing models was useful also, in fact I found myself using it all afternoon. In a word the seminar was “Great”! Sincerely, ‘ ~ Bill Russell, Photographer

‘Seth.. I have to tell you, Yesterday’s class in St Louis, MO before the shoot was amazing and I learned so very much from you. Mostly I would like to say that I was amazed at how down to earth you were and how nice you were! It was my honor to be in the same room.. let alone to learn from you! Thank you so much for taking your time to help fellow photographers.. you are a true gift! 🙂 xoxo love, ~ Bellement Brise, Photographer

“Seth, You’ve sent some amazing photos out. I’ve learned a lot just having seen yours as examples of what is possible.” ~ Brian Livingston, Photographer

‘Seth, I was really impressed with your professionalism in Fayetteville, AR. That is and of it’s self a success and a measure of the caliber of who you are. I was very inspired. You were so helpful with me and focused on my needs that I was able to go to the next step of my understanding of lighting. The demonstration helped me tremendously as I was trying to make lighting harder than it should be. I am a visual learner and seeing how you set up a situation was very revealing to me. Also I liked how you articulated your thought process on how you shoot a subject. That is how I learn and that is something you do not get from a book. I loved the straight to the point delivery. Not overwhelming me with technical information and jargon. Thank you again Seth, it was a pleasure meeting you.’ ~ Norma Davis, Photographer

‘Seth, I can not believe how much my lighting improved from your class in St Louis, MO. I loved how you spoke in a way that we could understand. I had no knowledge at all of soft boxes except to have seen them. For you to explain how those different lights worked was a gift. It gave me ideas as to what to buy. I didn’t have a clue before. I have had no training what so ever. To hear you speak was just so wonderful. Me and God and thousand of hours! ‘ ~ Shannon Edwards, Photographer

‘Seth, You going through your Photoshop process helped fill in so many gaps for me. Thank you for sharing your actions and other software with us. Not everyone shares info and I have a lot of respect for you for doing so. ‘ ~ Eric Grapher, Photographer

‘Seth, I learned so much at the Power of Light 2in1 Workshop in Columbia, MO. Your presentation on how you take an unedited image and take it through your Photoshop process was invaluable. I consider my skills at Photoshop to be one of my strengths, but you taught me several more things I’ll incorporate into my standard editing process. Thank you again for sharing your actions with us. It’s rare to find a photographer of your caliber that is so willing to share like this. Also, Not only were the models high quality, but they were also very patient with the photographers while they were trying to incorporate some of the lighting tips you shared with us. All around a fantastic workshop that I would highly recommend to any photographer. You’re such a great asset to have here in Missouri and I’m glad we met.’ ~ Daniel McBride, Photographer

‘Seth, really, you’re incredible. In the 10 plus years I’ve known you, you continue to shoot, take the required time to clean the Images, promote, advertise the model and still continue shooting. It would be good to see & work with you again.’ ~ Nelson Jones, Photographer

‘I consider myself a very professional person. I do not work with people (models, photographers, etc.) that are unprofessional. I chose to work with Seth after a year of monitoring him and selecting photographers in the Midwest. Most that interested me proved to be unprofessional and am still glad I did not make those choices. When I shot with Seth he was very professional. He asked me what shots I wanted to do and as you can see in my profile pics/portfolio you can see I got the shots I wanted. I am proud of the work Seth did. I am shooting with him again. I trust him and although I do not recommend unprofessional photographers, I recommend Seth Garcia and will continue to recommend him.’ ~ Sarah Haze, Model

‘I met Seth Garcia back in December of 2008 at my very first photo shoot! He knew that I was nervous and did his best to make me feel comfortable and gave me great posing pointers.

Seth has always been extremely professional, delivers photos in a timely manner, and is a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend Seth to anyone!!! ‘ ~ Kimberly Diane Andert, Model

‘Seth Garcia is freaking amazing! I had a blast when shooting with him and that is to say the least! He was very professional and very respectful but at the same time we had fun. Right away at the beginning of our first shoot we collaborated, he gave me time to show him my style of modeling. This was the best first shoot I have ever had. He was respectful in every aspect of the shoot never pushing any boundaries and did not ask me to do anything I would feel uncomfortable with. Finally, I got 2 Images from him immediately, 1 of which is my all-time favorite image. He works very hard at making sure each detail is perfect whether it be the background or lighting. He has many concepts he likes to shoot as well as very open to doing the models concepts too whether they be his bag or not. Will I shoot with Seth again? Gee, I sure hope so because he’s awesome. Should you shoot with Seth? Most definitely!!!! Xoxo All ‘ ~ Briella Brooke, Omaha,NE Model
