Roy Corral is without doubt one of the most gifted photojournalists I have ever met. His photographs, whether scenery, wildlife, or people, display an unparalleled sensitivity and beauty. The accompanying narrative goes well beyond the mere descriptive and touches the reader’s soul. He is also an exemplary instructor, exhibiting not only excellent teaching ability but also a deep faith in the student’s capabilities and ability to learn from him. I count myself blessed to know Roy, and have learned a great deal from him.
