..."Seewald's images communicate in a quiet, lyrical way. Speaking to the photographer, one feels that this is an individual so in love with his art, so in love with the world, that he'll work for as long as he's able to see, as long as his legs and arms will carry him." -Photographers Forum Magazine-_ _ _ _Here is a statement from an advanced photographer concerning Seewald's three day photo classes: "...The night after the first day of Seewald's class I was unable to sleep well, conceptualizing in my mind what had been learned, reapplying it to photos I had brought to class that day ... I have not been so excited about my photography in years. Michael's instruction would help ANY photographer improve their work, and allowed me to take "nice" photos I had, and turn them into dynamic pieces of art. ..." Dan McGeorge, Lakeside, California/ Class of 3.'05. _ _ _ _Workshops held in San Diego, Yosemite, Carmel and Napa California: http://www.seewald.com
