Low end colour laser printer for printing photos

Hi I need to source a printing solution for a kid who has just started at a very competitive high school.  I am hoping to be able to get a laser printer that does an ok job printing photo's.   Is this possible these days or should I just stick with an ink jet?

Lasers are the wrong choice for printing photos. They will print a better photo than an inkjet, on plain paper. They also print reports and homework much better, faster and cheaper. If that is your main concern, by all means get a laser. If you need it mainly for high quality photos (on special paper) get an inkjet.

I use a Fuji-Xerox CM305DF (with scanner). It gives very good quality, it's fast and economical. In the US, the equivalent is the Xerox WorkCentre 6505 (or the Phaser 6500 without the scanner)

HP LaserJet P1005 could do the job. It is an A4 printer. You have not mentioned your paper size requirement that's why I telling you an standard A4 printer. It is good deal in less price

I am specifically asking about printing photos' on a laser printer or whether I am best going with an inkjet.

I am talking a4 printing.

the P1005 is a discontinued product.

The reviews for the HP LaserJet Pro CP1025 say it is bad for photos..

I cannot say I have ever seen a laser printer do a good job of photos but I haven't had much to do with printing in the last few years which is why I am asking this question.
