“I attended an outing with Mary to the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens. Mary did an excellent job organizing, and leading the outing. I love that she held a Zoom meeting prior to the event to share her knowledge of the Zoo, and what we could expect. The call also gave folks an opportunity to ask questions. The day of the event Mary made herself available to anyone who had questions or needed help. Mary’s passion for photography, and her love of teaching was apparent. She is a talented photographer, professional, and very well organized. I would definitely attend another of her outings, and I would recommend that others do as well. ”       -Marcy Murphy

“As a member of CNPA, I recently watched a zoom presentation by Mary Presson Roberts for an upcoming outing to the Riverbanks Zoo. Mary walked us through the steps to get the best photos possible. She explained what equipment she uses and why. She showed her photos, her creative process and answered all of our questions. She then led the outing to the Zoo a few days later, making sure we all had a great time while assisting if we needed anything. She’s not only an extremely talented photographer, but a great instructor, making sure you get the best photo and just a very nice person. ” -Gerry King
