Become a Part of Our Community

When you take a workshop you become a part of a community. You discover how much you have to learn from others - and how important that is. You also discover how much you have to give to others - and how good that feels. You'll want to stay in touch.


"For me, the only joy greater than taking a picture is seeing that image printed. When asked by colleagues and students who I turn to for advice, technique or guidance on printing, there's only one person I recommend and that is John Paul Caponigro. JP is to digital inkjet printing what his father is to traditional silver gelatin printing... a true master craftsman and artist."
