I came into this class thinking that I would learn a few new tricks because I was so familiar with and use photoshop on a normal basis. Also, I have been using Photoshop for several years. To my surprise, I found out that knew very little about Photoshop.

I would like to thank Michael Collins, the class instructor, for not only opening my eyes but for actually showing the many simple things that I have been missing. By going through this class I have already reduced my workflow processing time tremendously. Thanks Mike for being super patient, knowledgeable and funny. The class was very informative and fun. I recommend this class to everyone that is using Photoshop who is at the beginner or intermediate level. If you have never taken a Photoshop class before this is definitely the class for you regardless of what level you believe you are at. – Rocky Foster – WCS Student June 2015

“Thanks again Michael Collins for an outstanding class and experience. I cannot tell you how great it feels to understand what I am doing in Photoshop and I am practicing today and finding great results/fun. You really did an incredible job of giving a working overview of it all and the class really delivered on its description.

You have a great way of teaching and personality for it –  I hope you do many more classes/workshops. You made what I thought was going to be a task actually fun and the week flew by!”

I love West Coast School. I have learned so much about my profession over the last couple of years! Also the EZ Pay system allows me to pay over a period of time…It is EZ!

“Having had the honor and pleasure of teaching at WCS for many years… I can honestly say that the environment, the commitment of the WCS personal, the passion of the ‘schoolies,’ all contribute to the success of the learning there… you have to experience the magic to believe it!”

The educational opportunities at West Coast School are superb, the instructors are talented, the selection of classes are well rounded and the friendships created are lifelong.

I have been attending West Coast School for more than 18 years. It has made me a much better photographer. But more important than teaching me the skills I have today, I have made lifelong friends and get to see them every time I go back. WCS is more than just great education. I WILL BE THERE THIS YEAR. Now I have the honor of teaching @ WCS!

“West Coast School is the best educational photographic experience I’ve ever had! I’ve never learned anything more important that what I’ve learned at WCS.”
