  • Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen because attending a workshop with Rich Baum will knock your socks off.   He is super informative and completely transparent in his practice and technique. I was pretty strong going into his work shop but walked out of it with a whole new approach and bag of tricks! Nothing quite like having an arsenal of knowledge taught to you by one of the best when you get into a tough photography situation”  Kristine Kohl  /


  • “I have been an avid follower of Rich’s YouTube videos, so when I heard that he was holding a workshop on real estate photography, I didn’t hesitate to sign up. Rich’s delivery style in person is very much like what you see in his videos. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and clear in his delivery of the content. He uses real-world examples that are relevant to real estate photographers and brings his years of experience into the classroom. I highly recommend Rich’s workshops!”  Cheryl DeCristofaro /


  • Rich Baum is an excellent instructor and it was a pleasure to see him work in person. What I truly appreciated was that he teaches you how to maximize your time both on location and during the editing process. He is full of knowledge, patience and loves sharing his expertise of real estate photography. It was really a great experience”  Mary Powell /
