"My experience at HTL not only boosted my skill-level in photography but also my confidence as a photographer. I will be back for more. Thanks to JT and the gang for an amazing experience!" - Fishhook Creek Photography

"To say it is a 10 out of 10 is a is off the charts. Loved it!" - L. Wilke

"This was my first time experience at HTL. I really didn't know what to expect and went into it with a open mind. I learned so much photography wise, it was unbelievable. The mentors, models, and Make up artists and hair stylist are all excellent. That's only a small part of the HTL experience. Life had so few perfect moments and experiences but at HTL every minute was priceless. Not only the beautiful location in Gods country, but away from all the troubles in the world. To share such an experience with all types and ages of photographers is truly worth going in itself...I am still smiling every time I think of my own experience and I cant wait until next years HTL. Oh, did I mention the awesome home cooking at HTL..Life doesn't get any better than being at HTL. Making many new friends and seeing some old ones as well." - T. Rothe

"I absolutely loved every minute of HTL and our holiday to USA - You and the mentors have all helped me so much. I am really grateful for the HTL experience and all it has given. - G. Moppit

"No other event comes close to offering so many elements under one roof!" - A. Smith

"Had a great time at HTL 2014 - Will see you again next year. Thanks Everyone!" - J. Beharry

Michael Green - Hey JT just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for your program. I attended HTL back in Helen,GA a few years back and things haven't slowed down since. I just wanted to take a bit to remember and be thankful for my beginning brushes with people who in one way or another changed the course of my life. Since then I have signed on with the Rams Cheerleader Calendar for the second year now. I also will be attending the World Photoshop Expo and am nominated for a World Photoshop Guru Award for an image of Ginger from your workshop in GA. that I created of her. Positive energy is all around me now and I just feel the need to recognize its sources. Thanks and peace, Michael Green

Tom Reed - Thank you again to everyone involved in Phoenix. Having those images in my portfolio helped to land the fashion part of a western wear catalog. I am booked for four days of shooting on location in May for the fall catalog. This company puts out four catalogs a year ,so that will mean more work to come. I really think the Phoenix images got their attention. Thank you again.

Joseph Hillebrandt - Maybe I just lucked out, but attending the Tampa SuperShoot event with JT changed my life forever. I realize that this sounds corny, but I truly believe the above sentiment to be an understatement. To put it slightly differently, I gained more experience in one weekend under the expert guidance of JT Smith and the other participating photographers, and a great group of models than I would have accomplished in 6 to 12 months (or more) of independent work and study. The workshop gave me different perspectives to consider, skills I hadn't even realized I was missing, and most importantly, the CONFIDENCE to do a model shoot on my own.
