I would like to give a shout out to one of my best friends David Birdsong! Thank you so much for everything! You're truly an amazing photographer and I have been so lucky to be your muse for the past two years. I would not be half as good of a model as I am today without you. I will always cherish our relationship as you are very special to me. I promise I will make you proud & will see you in April
All models should be thankful to shoot with you!! You taught me everything I know

Just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for all that you have done for me. You have made me the model I am today and I cannot thank you enough. I cherish our friendship immensely and you've truly made a huge impact on my life. You're an amazing photographer, and even more of an amazing friend. I love you so much and cannot wait to see what the future brings XO

This was great. Every time I attend a workshop, I always learn something new. The best thing is to actually practice with your camera. Thanks for doing a great job.

Good workshop. Got some new lighting ideas and better experience with natural light. Jem is a fantastic model and fun to work with.
Thanks for another fantastic workshop.
Great models, excellent sharing of your knowledge and a fun time once again.

What Models are saying about working at my workshops
What a great group you had attending your workshop!
I have worked with David several times since I have started modeling and he has helped me to grow so much as a model! He really works with you on learning and is supportive and understanding with every step of the way!! He is very easy to work with and the other photographers that he works with on occasion are absolutely wonderful as well!!
One of my Top Choices!!
Thank you Birdy for taking me under your wing!!
David! Thank you so much for letting me be the model for your dramatic sports workshop! It was a blast working with you and the other photographers. I was so comfortable in front of everyone thanks to you and you are so easy to work with. There’s always something fun to try, especially when there’s water involved! Can’t wait until I can be part of the next workshop!
I had the opportunity to work with David recently when he was in Southern California. After seeing his portfolio I knew I was going to get some awesome images, but I could have never expected what I got! David was very warm and friendly and allowed me to use my creative ideas in junction with his own to produce one of my best pictures yet! I look forward to working with him again in the future, even if it means flying out to Pontiac, Michigan!
