Scott reviews all photographs from the stand point of “How could this be better.” Having photographed a variety of breeds and disciplines within those breeds, Scott brings to the portfolio review process a great depth of knowledge and experience and a willingness to share it. This can be extremely beneficial to anyone trying to learn how to improve their images with a review from this respected photographed.
Amateur or pro, anyone can benefit from an objective, experienced opinion, given with the educational intent of improving their photography. Finding someone that will offer such a critique with the purpose of helping you improve is not always that easy! They either a) tell you what they think you want to hear, and or b) rip it apart and offer no solutions regarding how to make it better.
Scott Trees’ approach is centered on trying to help his students improve and learn. “In my workshops I find portfolio critiques to be a popular and educational element. I attempt to offer an informative, constructive critique by sharing 40 years of international photographic experience. My goal? To offer suggestions and guidelines that help the recipient compose a more powerful, improved image."

Sherron's portfolio reviews are conducted from an "artist's point of view". Sherron judges numerous photography competitions and, in the process, critiques many images. Offering suggestions on student images is also a large part of her workshops. Sherron's approach to critiquing is centered on her own artistic approach to photography. She gives the makers honest suggestions on what is right about their images and also what will make their images better. In addition to her artistic vision, Sherron's success in photography is due in large part to her traditional art knowledge and following the artist's rules of composition and design. She uses her art background and considers those same compositional guide lines in her critiques and offers suggestions that are designed to add impact and to elevate the maker's images to new artistic levels.
