"I hired John for lessons in Lightroom.  I found him to be an extremely
knowledgeable, effective and unfailingly positive and supportive instructor.
He was also dependable and flexible as to scheduling, his rates were very
reasonable, and I would recommend him as a wonderful teacher without

Having recently completed your Photoshop 101 course in Sparta, I am writing to thank you and recommend the course and you to others.I enjoyed the course tremendously. I learned a ton and had a great time doing so. While you obviously know Photoshop inside out, what made the classes special was your enthusiasm and ability to convey Photoshop’s staggering potential. I looked forward to each class and only wished the course had been more than six weeks.Again, thanks so much. It was a pleasure.

John Scalera is an excellent instructor.   I took his Photoshop class through the Sparta, NJ  Parks and Recreation Department.  John provides expert detailed instruction during the class.   One of his major strengths as an instructor is his willingness to provide help with individual projects. I learned to find tune vintage black and white photos for a professional project due to John's help.

I chair the committee for speakers and presenters for the Pocono Photo Club.  We were happy to have

John’s presentation on zoo photography last evening.  I believe it was enjoyed by all and a useful presentation

for everyone.  Not everyone can travel to exotic places to get animal shots to awe their viewers.  He shows us

that we can get these beautiful photos wherever you are even while enjoying time with your family.  His work is

outstanding and his knowledge of the animals he photographs is great.  He is an engaging speaker with a true

passion for the genre of photography he is doing.  Thank you John!
