    It took me 2 years to complete the course while working full time and a full life of family, a granddaughter, dogs, etc...busy busy....and I did it. I'm proud of what I have done and with the exceptional help from the instructors, the staff when you call you get someone right away that bends over backwards to help you. At the end of the course I have improved my photography 100% and I highly recommend this as your 1st step to become a great photographer.

    I was looking a course to improve my photojournalism skills, but with the Photojournalism course in the NYIP i didn't only improve my skills, i went far away from that, this course gave me the tools and skills to work in a profesional field, as i did publish with Xinhua from China, el proceso from Mexico, Revista Semana from Colombia and Worldcrunch.

    MY NYIP EXPERIENCE
    There was not a single Unit, nor sub-unit that I did not believe to be extremely helpful and important to me...I loved it all as it tested my resolve to become a technically better photographer than I was. I certainly appreciated the value and importance of not just including objects in the photo of a subject I was shooting because they 'looked good there', but to be critical and ask the questions: does any of the objects around the subject add value to the subject? Does any of it increase the universality of the subject matter? Did I unemotionally simplify the subject? Did I do everything I could in the actual shooting of the subject to ensure very little post -shoot editing had to be done? Was it my very best 'eye of the photographer' shot I could have done at the time?
    I learned to make all those issues and many others that impact on a good photograph, second-nature to preparing for every shot I set myself to take. I decided quite early in the course that anyone can shoot in Intelligent Auto, Creative Auto, Portrait, and all the other built-in settings in the camera...but I wanted to master Manual! 98% of my end of Unit submissions were shot in Raw and Manual...I have become adept at shooting in Manual in any environment and condition; further because I could not afford a wide view camera nor its substitute - shift lens, to do Architectural photograph, it was no 'big thing' for me as I had always tested methods of shooting buildings and ensuring they were not leaning towards each other or backwards, or even a term new to me...ship's prow effect. I just always knew that those were not normal, however because NYIP enlightened me to the Architectural information, I worked harder at my own skills, utilizing all the new information to make my Canon Rebel T4i SLR and my 18-55mm lens with a Macro Attachment 58mm, do for me what the specialized camera and lenses are expected to achieve.
    NYIP's Professional Photographer's Course ensured that I reinforced my own skill-set of innovation and initiative to overcome issues of absence of specialized equipment. I APPLAUD NYIP and I challenge anyone with the desire to be a better photographer to sign-on to the Professional course before specializing...it is paramount to your success.

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.

    I am so much more improved as a photographer.

    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!!!!
