    To all those who are thinking about taking any of the photography courses please do so. These courses are tailored to you and your skill level. There are 6 units to the course that I just completed and the instructions were clearly written and easy to understand. The feed back is a great learning tool as well.

    I really enjoyed this course and I got so much out of it. The material was really helpful, especially the topics on composition and harnessing the light. I loved photography but was always scared of pursuing it professionally because I was afraid of encountering tricky lighting situations and difficult-to-manage subjects on paid gigs, but this course taught me everything I needed to know so I had the confidence to build my photography business and show people my work. While taking this course, I learned a lot about how my camera works and what equipment and camera settings I need in order to create the effects I want to create in all of my photos. So far, I have gotten great feedback from the new clients after I took this course. The materials and feedback to unit projects from professionals in the field were extremely helpful in improving my photography skills, learning about best-practices, and designing my business plan and strategy. I cannot recommend this course enough to anyone hoping to pursue photography professionally.

    I have a message for "seniors". As a recent retiree and long-time hobbyist I wondered whether I would benefit from taken the course. Without question, I can see a dramatic improvement in my skill level. Not only am I capable of taking better pictures, I can achieve better results more consistently. The written material is thorough, the instructional videos and exercises were extremely helpful, and the photo projects and reviews were very rewarding. One minor suggestion - an additional discount for senior citizens would be a nice touch (Lol). Well done NYIP.

    The Professional Photographer's Course taught me so much. The Units are concise, and easily understood. It covered every area of photography for which I could have hoped. My images were easy to upload, and Deborah's critiques were so spot on and I really appreciated her extra TLC.

    I am so much more improved as a photographer.

    Thanks.

    I honestly had no great expectation from taking the course with NYIP, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. I didn't realize how in-depth the training was going to be and for an online course at that. I started the course with a mindset to improve my skills as a hobby, an finished the course feeling that freelancing may be something to get into. The course and instructors helped me feel more confident about my work. I really enjoyed the feedback from the instructors because it was real constructive criticisms that made sense and not just a grade on a photo. With my last project grade, I now have the tools to try my hand at photographing our menu items and displaying them with pride... A Big Thanks to NYIP!!

    I loved taking this course. It pushed me to my limits and beyond. I am amazed at the quality of my photos now compared to when I first began. I loved having assignments to focus on, but that they were self-paced. This allowed me to do this in my free time and didn't interfere with my regular job. It was a lot of fun and I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their craft.

    I have been in the professional photography world for quite a few years. While most of my photographic knowledge was self taught (with some college courses) I decided to take the "Complete Course In Professional Photography" to learn new techniques or expand on techniques/procedures that I already use.

    I found the course to be a great "refresher" and a "skill sharpening" process and a great deal of the lessons learned have already been added in my "workflow procedures". In other words "This course can still teach an old dog like me new tricks of the profession".

    I was a real amateur photographer before I started taking the Complete Course in Professional Photography course, but I love photography. NYIP helped me to become a better photographer. My adviser was very professional. She was always very genuine. I struggled with my first and second projects. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. I did them anyways. after the third project. I got the idea of what I should do. I didn't fully understand what photography is all about until I finished the whole course. It just darned on me that I was doing it all along the way. I know I am a slow learner and I'm getting it. Thank you, NYIP!!!!

    I made the right choice in enrolling to NYIP's Complete Course in Professional Photography! At first, I just wanted to improve my skills as a hobby but as my training goes on and learning different techniques. This course has given me self-confidence in taking photos. I am impressed with the books and they are very helpful. My student advisor is AWESOME! She gives constructive comments on how I can make it more better and definitely know what she is doing. I know now how to control my camera to take better photos and I definitely improved my skills. Now, I am proud to say that I am a graduate of NYIP! Thank you NYIP for the amazing experience that you have given me! More power!

    Although I have been shooting for over 50 years, when I changed from film to digital, I became lazy in all respects because it costed nothing to take another shot. I decided to "start over" using NYIP's Complete Course in Professional Photography and am glad I did. There was a lot of refresher for me, but numerous ah-ha moments also. The evaluations on the projects were invaluable; my instructor's keen eye helped me keep focused on continually improving. The variety in assignments took me in directions I had not previously ventured and the breadth of what I enjoy shooting now is much greater. Obviously you can do an internet search and learn about a specific topic for free, but the true advantages of this course are: 1) A systematic outline that takes you from the basics through advanced (you learn things that you didn't know you should know), 2) the ability to call and ask questions and bounce ideas off of professionals, and 3) critiques by some very skilled sets of eyes.

    NYIP´s Complete Course in Professional Photography was one of the best choices I ever made in my life. It ´s been the accomplishment of an old dream of mine: I ´ve always wanted to understand how to use a camera in manual mode, but it seemed to me to be a very complicated thing, and neither books nor the numerous reviews in the Internet ever managed to make the penny drop! NYIP offered me exactly what I had been missing, and much more. NYIP´s lessons are very clear and well structured, easy to understand, every page of the course reflects clarity and perfection and this teaching material is very motivating and inspiring. First class teaching! I am extremely happy about all the stuff I learned about photography in theory and practice. Now I know what to look for, what a good photograph should look like and I know how to handle my camera to get to the wished results.
    After 2 years spent with NYIP I can proudly say that I have become a much better photograph and that this Course has opened to me new perspectives. Let´s see where my photography skills will take me along :-) Thank you to the NYIP team.

    I was very excited about enrolling in this course and now having come to the end I think it was one of the best choices I have made. Each learning sequence helps you improve on an aspect of photography. I loved the way the course unfolds and how with the completion of each unit you can actually see the improvements in your pictures. I feel proud to be an NYIP Graduate. Thank you to the NYIP team for this amazing learning experience.
