"Our first class was amazing! I was so impressed by your knowledge, professionalism and patience you exhibited with our barrage of questions! Can't wait for the next class! The world should know there is someone like you working at their trade and TEACHING." ~ Nan Cuccia, Laguna Niguel, CA

"Thank you for the wonderful class! It was exactly what I was hoping it would be and I especially appreciated the focusing (maybe a bad pun) on the few things that really mattered. It was also amazing how you knew so much about so many different cameras. The more I have had time to explore things, the more I realize how much I learned from your short course! I really hope I can take some more of your classes!" ~ Nancy Fitch, Brea, CA

"Thank you again so much for all of your hard work to share your vast knowledge! Both my mom and I greatly enjoyed your beginner photography class. Not only did we learn photo techniques, composition strategies, and ideal camera settings, but we can now read the camera manual with understanding! Your knowledge of every camera model represented in class is astounding. We enjoyed the relaxed, fun-filled environment and appreciated your patience in explaining concepts and showing us hands-on application that have opened up a whole new world of photographic options." ~ Michele M., Orange, CA

"Thank you for leading such a wonderful class today! I really enjoyed it. Your expertise was so apparent, and your patience as you guided all of us was greatly appreciated. I am interested in furthering my knowledge and experience through one of your six-week courses. I am most interested in hearing about opportunities for future classes."
~ Katherine D., Costa Mesa, CA

"I have taken many digital photography classes with Mary. What amazes me is her extensive knowledge of photography, composition, all types of digital cameras and accessories, and Photoshop. Along with her expertise, Mary brings to the classroom patience, professionalism, a sense of humor, and an ability to create a comfortable relaxing atmosphere where it is fun to learn. You will find yourself anxiously looking forward to each class as I did. Mary encouraged me and gave me confidence to pursue my  passion and for that I am truly grateful."
~ Marijane Troche, Scottsdale, AZ

"I sure am enjoying the class Mary! It seems to be so important to keep taking classes and hearing over and over the things you teach. I learned so much tonight just doing exactly what you said we should do over and over again! You are a GREAT teacher and I'm looking forward to taking more classes with you in the fall!! See you Monday!
~
Susie Campbell, Laguna Beach, CA

"I took Mary's 4-hour "Walking Photography Class" at Laguna Beach today and I really enjoyed it. I walked away with learning how to take great close up shots with a blurred background and understand the White Balance and technical aspect of manual photography. The location was breath taking too!! Considering we had a large class, Mary did a great job being able to answer all our questions and still give the one-to-one attention. She is also very patient. Thanks Mary for a fun and educational class!!!!"
Yelp Review ~ Carolina L., Fullerton, CA

"I just wanted to compliment you on the excellent technical workshop you did a couple of weeks ago! I was so happy that you knew the specifics of my camera so I could look up the correct terminology in my manual. You gave me enough to get comfortable with some key manual features and the confidence to explore more! You also reminded me of the basics which was a great refresher. I look forward to taking more classes with you as my baby permits. :)"~ Michelle Cornell, Laguna Beach, CA

"I have been taking photography classes and Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom classes from Mary for a few years.  I love these classes and have learned so much.  I highly recommend these classes.  It is money and time well spent.  Thank you Mary!!!" ~ Donna C., Newport Beach, CA

"I started taking painting classes with Mary Gulino one year ago. Not only have my painting skills improved, but I've had the opportunity to be taught by someone who truly knows the art of taking what she has mastered and tailoring for my specific way of learning. She does with every student. To me, an extraordinary teacher is one who can show what they know in a language that an amateur can understand and apply. There is nothing more fulfilling than feeling mastery over a hobby. Also, she is one of the nicest, understanding, warm and patient people that I've had the opportunity to work with. Painting in Laguna Beach while overlooking the ocean every Saturday morning has become a treat that I look forward to. I highly recommend you taking her classes. You will be happy you did! Thank you Mary, for being who you are, a wonderful person who shares her gift developing our creative sides." ~ Shelby S., Dana Point, CA

"Mary brings years of photography experience, teaching know-how, high energy enthusiasm, a caring attitude and refreshing humor to her students. I took her 6-week beginning photography class in Laguna Beach. I wanted to learn how to use an SLR camera that my daughter handed down to me and wean myself from limited iphone photography (as much as I love my iphone for convenience!). I am a bit technology phobic, but I now feel comfortable shooting on manual mode which is saying a lot considering that I had no knowledge of my camera when I started. Mary gave us a great syllabus packed with information that I will use as I continue to practice. I really appreciate her diligence and attention to detail as well as her fun nature. It's a great combination to have in a teacher. I highly recommend her classes!"
~ Betsy G., Laguna Beach, CA

"My husband and I bought our first DSLR about a month ago and wanted to learn the basics quickly so we would be ready to take nice pictures at Christmas.  We contacted Mary and set up two sessions (two hours each).  Mary was very flexible and patient, and she tailored the sessions to our needs and desires.  For our first session, she went through all of our photo settings and showed us how the camera worked, giving us lots of tips and advice (as well as helping us choose the best settings).  For our second session, we decided to spend about an hour shooting our toddler (I told you she was patient), and then I spent an hour going over the basics of Photoshop Lightroom and editing some of the pictures we had taken together. For us, these sessions provided a great foundation of a mixture of basic skills, and we feel confident in our ability to take some great pictures on our Christmas vacation!  We enjoyed Mary's friendly, welcoming personality in addition to her knowledge and skill.  I was impressed by the way she assessed and responded to our skill level and desire for information, and I definitely hope to take one of her classes in the future."
Yelp Review ~ Skye M., Tustin, CA

"I wanted to send to you the announcement for the launch of my photography business.  I am very excited about being official and your class was such an important part of making all of this happen.  Thank you so much for all of your encouraging words, feedback, and fun projects.  It sparked something inside of me and now look…Life in Bloom Photography is up and running!"
~ Jacqueline Karam, Scottsdale, AZ


"Mary is very knowledgeable about all technical aspects of digital photography as well as composition and lighting. Her teaching style is very clear and she takes time to answer individual questions from students at length. Although I have been taking pictures for forty years, I still learned a great deal from Mary during the digital photography courses I took from her. In the oil painting classes, Mary also helps individual students a great deal. She is very good when it comes to color coordination, composition, and perspective."
~ Leo and Hermine Philippe, Scottsdale, AZ

"Mary, I loved the class yesterday! Just a few tips and already I see a difference in my photos and my confidence. I will return as soon as I see when I'm free."
~ Judi Marshall, Huntington Beach, CA

"Mary's knowledge and artistic ability has helped and encouraged me immensely. She continues to challenge me in my own ability to create art work. Mary is such an outgoing woman with always a friendly smile. We will miss her greatly and hope the future brings her great happiness and joy."~ Robert Milling, Scottsdale, AZ

"Many years ago, there was a movie called 'To Sir With Love.' This note is about 'To Mary With Love.' In the title song, it says, 'how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume.' For me, you have taken me from a blank white canvas to something creative. You have guided me kindly with your knowledge of color and form. Your instructions are always precise and accurate. You have opened a whole new world for me and for that, I am extremely grateful." ~ Marcia Weinroth, Scottsdale, AZ

"I had the pleasure of studying oil painting under Mary Gulino's tutilage for a few years.    Her comprehensive knowledge of color theory, composition, and perspective gave me a good fundamental knowledge of the basics of art.  Her teachings enhanced my confidence and lent predictability to my paintings that had been missing.  Mary's teaching style is nurturing and encouraging, demonstrating that kind and constructive criticism of one's work can be delivered very positively.  In particular, I will always be grateful to Mary for having opened my eyes to the study of perspective for which I dubbed her our Princess of Perspective.  Thank you, Mary, for enhancing the pleasure of my art."
~ Jim Gray, Scottsdale, AZ

"I have been in Mary's classes for a few years, both painting and photography. She is an outstanding teacher and knows how to get the best out of her students. Her shoes will be hard to fill and we will all miss her."
~ Marillyn Wakefield, Scottsdale, AZ
