Melissa StullI'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!
