“Mary is very generous in the sharing of her own Personal Photography Projects.  She creates a safe place for participants to share their personal story/stories that go with the photography being shared.  Mary’s passion for the personal project is evident as she seeks out and introduces workshop participants to other photographers from around the world who create Personal Photography Projects.  Seeing and hearing about Mary’s projects and those of other photographers as well as my fellow participants was very inspiring and has given me many new ideas of directions to go in pursuing my own.  Thank you for an inspiring workshop Mary!”

“Mary Presson Roberts is a technically knowledgeable and skillful photographer and outstanding instructor who teaches with clarity, wit, honesty and kindness for her students.  She is a courageous and gifted creative who uses the materials of life as we find ourselves experiencing it and turning that raw material into art that benefits the learner with the opportunity to learn, grow, explore, have fun and even heal the hurts.  I have benefited greatly from the private instruction I have received from Mary, as she listens carefully to what is wanted and then delivers above and beyond.  Her Personal Projects class is unlike any workshop I have taken and I am looking forward to continuing ot learn from Mary, both virtually and in the field.”

“Thanks Mary for a great Personal Project class. I’ve been thinking about doing a personal project but thinking and doing are two different things. Your workshop inspired me to get started on a project and got me excited about continuing with it after the class was over. I loved the examples you provided, especially the project you did while your mother was in Hospice. It was such a personal and meaningful project and your approach was very creative.”

“I have recently finished Mary’s workshop on personal projects. I have followed Mary online for several years and I have always enjoyed seeing the personal projects that she creates. I wanted to learn more about coming up with more of my own personal projects. Mary takes a considerable amount of time letting us learn how she created her projects and what motivated her to do each of them. She also shares many resources from other photographers that I found helpful in my thought processes around personal projects. Mary is always well prepared and is encouraging to each of her students to help them create their own projects.”

“I have known Mary Presson Roberts for many years and am continually amazed at the caliber and creativity of her photography. Her work often encompasses many different subjects in a unique perspective that is hers alone. She is passionate about her work, is a patient teacher and is very knowledgeable about photography. I would highly recommend taking a workshop or class from Mary” -Cindy Carroll.
