Are You UPSET with the Quality of Your Photo Prints?

From The Home Offices of Matt Suess

- Master Photographer, Educator & Coach- OM SYSTEM, Fotopro & NiSi Ambassador

How much money have you already wasted printing your own photos - either at home or via an outside lab - only to receive those prints and be extremely disappointed...Why do your prints come out too dark?

Why does the color from your print not match the color on your monitor?

In this course you'll learn how to set up your own Color Managed Workflow so you can get repeatable results and consistent color.

You'll learn how to prepare your files for print - if you are printing at home or sending your files out to a lab. This includes sharpening, resizing, and more!

You will ultimately stop wasting money on prints that disappoint so you can start creating prints you can both enjoy yourself and even sell to others.

My studio featured on the local TV news.

Join me as I share everything I know about printing photographs!

I've been printing my own work since the early 80's first in a chemical darkroom and now digitally.

I regularly sell my fine art prints and have collectors worldwide - some of whom have paid over $10k for my prints!

Learn from someone who not only teaches, but from someone who has consistently printed and sold their prints so you too can create prints everyone - including yourself - will enjoy.


Picture Perfect Printing

Wouldn't it be great if you could stop wasting money with prints that fail your expectations and don't look anything like what you have on your computer screen?

Maybe you only want some prints for your home or office - or to share with some friends. You might want to print them at home - or have a lab print them for you.

Maybe you want to have the best possible looking prints for the photo contest you are entering.

Or maybe you want to start selling your prints but you just can't get them to look like you want them to look...

Let me share with you all I know about creating prints that are such high quality that I've been able to sell my own for up to and over $10,000 per print!

What to Consider First Before Printing

There's a few things you need to know first before printing, such as how to set up your editing environment properly and also how our eyes see color and tonal ranges.

Color Management: Getting Our Devices To Speak The Same Language

This module is all about color management and ICC profiles - super important to understand so you can get consistent and accurate color.

Getting Your Files Ready to Print

In this module we will learn about resolution (so many people get this wrong), we'll discuss how large you can print, and we will also cover choosing the right paper, resizing, sharpening, soft proofing, and more.

Home Printing

This module is all about printing at home. We will discuss choosing your printer and setting it up properly to how to do test prints as well as printing from Photoshop, Lightroom, DxO Photolab, Capture One Pro, Luminar Neo, and ON1 Photo RAW.

Lab Printing

Want to have a lab print your photos? We will learn what to look for when choosing an outside lab and how to send your files to them.


Why did your prints come out too dark (or too light, not enough contrast, etc.)? Is there a trick to reducing noise and banding? What about clogged heads and maintenance tank? We will cover those common questions and more here.

This Course Is For:

Photographers Who Want to Print From Home

Printing from home can be both economical and personally satisfying. There is nothing like holding a photo print you just printed yourself - especially when it comes out exactly like you intended it to.

Photographers Who Want to Print With Outside Labs

There are some media and print sizes that just can't be accomplished at home - or maybe you don't care to print your own prints at home. Outside labs are there for you and I'll share my experiences and what to look for (and what to look out for).

Photographers Who Are Frustrated With Their Current Prints

Prints coming out too dark? Colors off? Not sharp enough? There are lots that can go wrong that end up providing you with lousy prints. This course will get you set up properly with a solid Color Management Workflow you are set up for success.

Photographers Who Want to Enjoy Their Own Photos On Their Walls and/or Sell Their Prints

Selling my photography has been my full time job. Learn from someone who has the experience and the proof of selling their work to help you get the most out of your prints - especially if you want to sell your own!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this course show me how to enhance and post process my photos?

Only as far as printing is concerned. I'll talk about sharpening, resizing, working color spaces, sending the file to the printer, and more. But this course does not teach you how to develop your photos like a traditional Lightroom course would.

  • Does this course require specific photo software?

Throughout this course I show necessary settings and how to print from the following programs: Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, ON1, Capture One Pro, DxO Photolab, and Luminar Neo.

Personally I use Photoshop for the majority of my printing, so there will be extra info on using Photoshop. Photoshop also happens to have the most control over your photos as far as printing is concerned. But I do highlight any strengths and weaknesses of printing with the other mentioned software.

Matt Suess

Fine Art Photographer and OM SYSTEM, NiSi, Fotopro, Ororo Wear Ambassador

Photography has always been a huge part of my life starting at the age of 12 when I had my own black & white chemical darkroom. That early interest launched a full-time professional photography career that began in 1990 and continues today.

For the first 17 years of my career I was a photojournalist based in New England. I am a digital photography pioneer and began teaching digital photography to photojournalists in the late 90’s, helping bring digital cameras to two different newspapers. I was awarded the 2003 New England Press Associations Photographer of the Year award for my work at the Cape Cod Times. During my time as a photojournalist, I also photographed weddings & portraits, as well as corporate & commercial assignments.

In 2006 I decided to leave all of that behind and move West, where I am now a fine art landscape, nature, wildlife, travel, and Milky Way photographer, educator, and publisher. I also accept select luxury resort & architectural photography assignments.

I teach numerous field & classroom workshops throughout the year as well as online courses and I provide occasional free online webinars. You may have already seen my videos/webinars for OM SYSTEM / Olympus, Hunts Photo & Video, B&H Photo, Skylum and ON1. My passion for sharing and teaching what I have learned during my long career is evident in my down-to-earth and encouraging approach with my clients.

I am honored to be sponsored by Olympus / OM SYSTEM as an OM SYSTEM Ambassador but I teach photography to anyone using any camera brand.

I live in Bozeman, Montana with my blue heeler cattle dog. You can find me online on Instagram and YouTube at @mattsuessphoto
