David Marr teaches the technology and techniques of contemporary photography
with an artist's eye for composition and light. His knowledge of cameras
and lenses enables him to help students obtain optimal results with their
own equipment, be it large format view camera, point and shoot, or high end
DSLR. David's classes and photographic excursions are a delight, and his
many stories are informative and entertaining. Students become so engaged
that they often don't realize just how much they are learning.
We have joined David and some of his other students on several excellent
Cole Mare Photography Workshop excursions. Most recently, we went on his
spring nine-day trip to Alaska. This was truly an outstanding experience,
both because it was Alaska and because of excellent planning and
accommodations arranged by David's wife and partner, Kristen Cole. The
landscapes, seascapes, and wildlife are truly magnificent, all of which were
amplified by David's knowledge based on numerous trips over more than 30
years. This Alaska trip, spring or fall, will be enjoyed by anyone who is
interested in outdoor photography.
