Student, Texas School
“This year I studied with Cris and Deanna Duncan. I wanted to send a special note because I know it was their first year at Texas School and I want to make sure that they get invited back so more students can have the opportunity to study with them. They both put so much into the class -- personally as well as professionally. They made every minute available that they could and taught concepts in a meaningful and practical manner. Their leadership also inspired a kind of camaraderie among our group that I think is truly unusual. They created an environment where we all teamed together for the week to tackle the challenge of lighting and portraiture and posing in all kinds of contexts. They delivered what the promised at the start of the week and more. They took such a personal interest in each of us and continue to share their time and expertise beyond Texas School. On top of being great educators and photographers, they are exceptional human beings. Inspirational in every way. Cris and Deanna seem to be the perfect fit for Texas School and I hope that there will be a place for them on the roster for many many years. They are an outstanding addition to Texas School and I would recommend them highly in every regard.
All Day Workshop, Lawton OK
“The lighting workshop last Saturday was a treasure. Your presentation was well done, adding light hearted moments that provided a nice flow to the content. You packed a lot of information into what seemed like a short day.
The math segment still has my head spinning because that is a foreign element in my brain. ;-) However, as per your challenge, that will be my 'something hard' to overcome. ”
“I have been teaching lighting and light theory for just over twenty five years. One of the most gratifying things for me personally is to watch the progress of young photographers as they do their part to elevate our profession and our craft. Cris Duncan has been doing this for a while now and he's doing it well. He has an easy going, Texas style of teaching coupled with solid techniques and proven information. If you are looking for a really decent guy to teach a class on the topic of light who knows what he's doing, I'd be pleased to recommend my friend Cris Duncan. ”

“Cris does an amazing job of his image designs from concept through execution. His presentation at IE was awesome. No ego, no fluff, only solid information with tons of enthusiasm. ”
