    Just finished the printing class and it was amazing! I came to the school thinking that there was photo paper, after photo 3 I learned that there was Matte, Luster and Glossy papers. Now after finishing this class, I know that there are 25 different papers to print on, and like fine wine those papers pair well with different types of photos. John took us through printing on most of those papers, helped us understand their unique properties and how to use them to deliver on what we are trying to accomplish as photographers and artists. His style is understated but his coaching and teaching is fantastic. Highly recommend this class and John in particular.
