"Excellent class packed with incredibly useful knowledge. John is an amazing lecturer. He has also developed really great materials to help explain all the concepts and technologies that are explored in the class. Looking forward to my next class with him!" B Dimitrov

" Great class. So informative. John Greengo is such a fantastic tutor and explains everything in such and easy-to-understand way. I would highly recommend this class. Prior to doing this class, I was so confused about which lenses are best for various photography. Now I understand lenses completely. Thanks John!" Arleen

" This was my first Jon Greengo class, but it will not be my last! I've heavily researched the lenses I have, but still learned a few valuable tidbits about using them, and some great info about future acquisitions. He zips through info to get as much as possible in the class, which I appreciate - no useless repetition and a lot of bang for the buck. Excellent!" Jilly
