I thought Jon Canfield’s class was fantastic. His knowledge is unbelievable, a true pro. I was surprised (maybe I shouldn’t be) that the Digital Photo Academy could come up with such a qualified instructor. There was no stumping this guy.

I have taught for many years at university and medical school and am known by students and colleagues alike as a very critical guy. I know good teaching from not so good. I have no criticism whatsoever of this really fine workshop. In my opinion, Jon’s teaching was excellent. As good as it gets
