    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.

  • August Naude
    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

    My initial goal was to learn to use a camera effectively & artistically. What I learned was so much more! This course will bring you beyond the technical know-how of learning how to use a camera. 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.

    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!
