The biggest thing I’ve learned from Lee is to challenge the way I look and see things before I photograph them. It's not just about the composition, but to actually think, is this the best angle, is this the best way, can I do it better?” explains Aly.

 “It’s more about seeing first…a lot of my photos are unedited… I have to learn about editing, lighting… but for now, I’m still enjoying looking at things from a different angle, seeing them in a different way.” ~Aly Wilson, Founding Member, Photo Mentor Academy
