Though I had friends who had taken courses with the Sherriff of Baghdad before, I had not previously heard of him as a high level instructor so going into the course my expectations were not very high. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well we were shooting by the end of the first day due to the attentive level of instruction John provided. There’s nothing quite like being able to see someone break down your movements on film and to receive instant feedback through the video analysis. Another aspect that I enjoyed was although John was our instructor, he did not speak to us as students, and he engaged us more like colleagues. The way that he was able to take the complicated tasks associated with long distance shooting and compare it to real world applications was impeccable. Despite the cold, windy and sometimes snowy conditions he made the class engaging and informative enough that you almost forgot the windburn on your face. Overall, I would say that this is one of the best experiences that I have ever had in a shooting course. I hope to continue to train with John as more classes in my area arise and plan to recommend him to any and all of my friends and colleagues.
