What People Are Saying

“…the book is elegant, the photographs stunning… and the sentiment within Cheryl Machat Dorskind’s style lovely and utterly charming. I love her work and I think the people and children she photographs are fortunate to have themselves "captured" for a moment in time by the internal lens within her creative mind's eye, as well as the technological and mechanical one within her camera...the one that listens to Cheryl's creative interpretation of what she sees, of what is in front of her.”~ Suzanne Hulme

“Glad to see your work! I am so very tired of photographers arranging overly sentimental images and contrived settings.”~B.J. Bolender

"Cheryl, Congratulations on the ebook! Your print book (and online class) on photographing children got me through my very first family photo shoot, 2 years ago, and is still one of my go-to's when I need some ideas or references. I recently was a photographer for a mission in Haiti with so many children there...your teaching on the basic principles of taking pictures of children stuck with me and led to some amazing pictures and a very happy customer. All the best to you…

Downloaded the eBook last night. It has something for everyone who photographs children—from the basics to recommendations on equipment, lighting, and photo shoots.”~Kris Jensen McGarigle

“Enthralled by her eBook that came out this week…Great advice, quotes, along with compelling imagery.”~Karen Meyers

"Cheryl is extremely generous in sharing her personal experience, knowledge, and story. The technical knowledge I learned from her was invaluable, but the greatest gift I received was an understanding and appreciation of my own creativity… “~Margaret Joanne Cotton
