Student Reviews and Comments  

Just completed a four-day Stephen Johnson "Fine Art Digital Printing" Photography Workshop at Stephen's Gallery in Pacifica. Outstanding experience that exceeded my expectations. Stephen is one of the pioneers of digital photography whose understanding of the medium, both technically and aesthetically, is profound.

An experienced and patient photographer and teacher Stephen is able to lucidly convey the technical details of the photo-editing and printing processes in way that allows for practical application buttressed by a thorough understanding of the issues involved and a means to problem solve.

At the conclusion of the workshop I felt confident in the knowledge base and practical experience gained in terms of essential print-directed photo editing skills, monitor calibration, printer profiling, and fine art/photo paper selection and characteristics. I also came away with a basic understanding of the archival requirements for mounting and matting a fine-art photographic print.

This workshop for me was a 5-star experience and should be considered by anyone who is seriously interested in honing their digital photographic and printing skills.

Although the emphasis of the workshop is not the immediate production of gallery-ready prints, the work produced over the four days by the workshop participants was noteworthy in the level of craft demonstrated and in the aesthetic sense gained during the workshop.

The Pacifica lab and gallery space are first-rate.

I just completed a Print workshop with Stephen Johnson at his Pacifica California studio. The best workshop I have taken. He is a passionate advocate for striving to produce excellent images and gives you the tools to do so. An absolute must if you want to improve your photographic output. He is articulate extremely knowledgeable and patient

Many thanks for your outstanding workshop.  It could not have been better, but it has wetted the appetite for more.

Steve's workshop on Printing has been wonderful. It's been an education in Photohop and Printing and the love of the craft that we share. If you want to learn, explore, come and spend time with him.

Your workshop is unbleivably terrific. I'm so happy to have had both the joy and the angst of learning how to make a better print.
