NOTE: Two of Michael Seewald's best sellers, and VERY RARE LIMITED EDITION OF ONLY 10

'Only' you say? Yes only, as they will increase to $500,000 with the next sale, then one million dollars for the 10th and final one, then the negative will be destroyed!

One of the places Seewald holds his classes.
 

"I gained a new, better way of evaluating the composition of an image in terms of the impact on the viewer. Michael was able to dramatically demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of each image.

...The value of Michael's suggestions and comments was tremendous...Michael was sensitive and appropriate in his critiquing and his critiques were always directed to produce a positive result".

Robert Bennett
Weekend class of 4.16.'05

For beginners thru advanced.

Seewald on Channel 8 news
June 12th, 1992

Here, Channel 8 TV coverage of Michael Seewald and his and his wife's gallery
 (in her name back then, he Valerie E. Wong Gallery)
and was produced without Michael given advance knowledge they
were even going to do a piece on him. How wonderful and what a
nice surprise. Folks for years came by and said they saw it. 

Of course, the prices quoted are old, and his travels
not so low budget anymore, but it's still hard work and
he gets folks to sponsor to this day, with over
60 world-wide trips under his belt now.
