    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.

    Hi! I just received my NYIP graduation form today. After I started studying here, I started see an improvement in my pictures really quick. I now have the control of the camera and that is very important. The course is easy to follow plus the instructors are pros. I recommend this course. You will learn a lot of skills and techniques.

    Thanks!

    The NYIP experience was one of the best in my photography life. I thought I knew what portrait photography was about, reading up about it over many years. When my training commenced, I was constantly reminded what portrait photography really is about and it took a lot of intense focus and re-focus to successfully complete the course. The quality of the training was excellent, the assignments were tough but doable, the tutors were of tremendous help even considering the fact that I live in South Africa, i.e the distant learning was no issue at all.
    I recommend NYIP training to anyone, anywhere, anytime! The Course in Intense Portrait Photography (like the rest of the training at NYIP) is no walk in the park but as long as you do your part and always be aware that the tutors are of great assistance, you will make a success of the training, looking back over a year or so and know that you have indeed achieved something. Thank you NYIP!

    I did the Complete Course in Professional Photography 3 years earlier. At that time, all was with booklets and had to be posted by mail. The new course in Travel Photography came all in lessons to be followed online, and the projects could be submitted online too, quite some easing within these three years.
    The quality of the tutorials is excellent, the comments of my teacher really helpful.
    The only small fallback was the handling of the projects, which did not work on two occasions

It will teach you things that you never even thought of. The business of photography! The many opportunities available. Additionally, in this digital age, this course will even teach you both the digital, and film aspects of photography. You want to learn photography? Do yourself a favor! Study with NYIP! The Best!

    NYIP has wonderful photography courses! I am very pleased with this school and their advisers. My student adviser was very helpful and encouraging, you can actually see in your work what he is talking about during his critique, and saying to yourself “Oh Yea I see it”. They have done so much for me! I have already earned a graduation certificate for professional photography in 2013 and now one for Photo Shop from NYIP. I couldn't be happier! After having an occupational injury from my former career, I had to transition myself into new career and what better than photography, I really recommend these classes to anyone who wants to become, or better themselves as a photographer. The course materials are easy to understand and very thorough, they give a realistic approach to getting into the photography profession. I really enjoyed it! NYIP is one of a kind, staying up to date with the teachings of home-study photography education, from basics to more advance, NYIP gives you a future of great endeavors. I am very proud to be a member of a school with such excellent quality and great standards! I would definitely recommend this NYIP course to anyone that is interested in learning or improving in photography with NYIP.

    When I started this course had very little knowledge about this field , much less on the functions of the camera , lights , etc. After completing this course I feel ready to take a new direction in my career and not just consider photography as a hobby but as a source of income. I really recommend this to anyone who want to become a better photographer.

    The Complete Course in Professional Photography was exactly what I had hoped it would be plus more. The program allowed me to reinforce the basics and helped challenge me and force me to shoot outside my comfort zone. The personal reviews were so helpful and my clients even saw an improvement in my photos. The tips ranging from technicals to business advice really complete the package. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to start photography all the way up to those who have been shooting for years. Truly a great program!

    I started this course with the intentions of becoming a professional photographer, to expand my knowledge of photography & this course surpassed this 100%. This course was easy to understand for the most part, the staff was very helpful, explained things I didn't understand, responded to emails in a timely manner etc. This course is also on your own time, which I also liked about it. I have learned so much about all different types of photography by taking this course & I really enjoyed it! I can't wait to see where God takes me in the future! Thank you, NYIP!

    The "Complete Course" is incredible. Beginning my photography later in life and having read all the mainline photography magazines for years, I questioned whether this course would be valuable to me. It has pulled all those finite bits of knowledge together, added many new concepts, and placed them in the context of "creativity". I'm one of those photographers who leaned on program/auto in many photo ops and situations. Never again!

    The course was excellent. As a self trained photographer I had many gaps that would have taken a lot of time(especially when studying various areas of photography). The course helped me a lot in filing these gaps, as well as doing things in a different better way, in areas that I wouldn't have personally gotten introduced to. The course was excellent, support from student service was fast and very helpful (thanx Chris Carradino and other photographers who were always there to help) and the instructor feedback was MORE than super. Thanks Philip Mauro for all your guidance and advice. Every single detail in the course was great. I will definitely be doing more courses with NYIP. The Business component was unique for NYIP. If you are going professional, this is a valuable component that you would not find elsewhere. I definitely recommend NYIP for every aspiring photographer. It is not the paper you get, it is the quality of the things you learn

    This was the most amazing course that I could have ever imagined! Nothinhg is overlooked. The instructors are so knowledgable about every aspect of photography and the photography business. Every lesson is carefully planned, comprehensive, and builds on the one before. I learned so much information that will help me to be a better photographer. I would recommend this course to everyone...from the hobbyist who just wants to be a better photographer, to the serious professional who is interested in pursuing photography as a business and a way of life. It will not disappoint.

    I'd tried a similar course with a different school and the material was very difficult to grasp. So difficult I changed schools and so glad I did. I learned more in the first parts of unit one with nyip than I learned in 2 months with the other school. It's basically the same subject matter but NYIP teaches it in an easy to understand and retain way. I like that I can call for guidance and talk with the folks in see in the training videos. The advisors are experienced, knowledgable and ready to help. When I call the school they make me feel like I am the only student in the entire school! They've been wonderful, even helped me choose equipment that made sense, advised me on used equipment I bought online w/o a manual. Every time I interact with the course and advisors I learn more, take better photos and get more excited about my future as a pro photographer!
