    Does anyone have any experience with the NY Institute of Photography?
    I have thought about enrolling if they really have a good reputation.
    I have sent for their information pack.

    hi barry


    if they are anything like they used to be, it won't be time or money wasted !
    they have been around for a long long time and have trained some very successful
    people. i worked for a woman who was trained in the 1920s/30s by the NYIP,
    she was pretty much the best portrait photographer in the region for decades.


    good luck !

    I went through their program about 10 years ago. I found it to be a great basic photography course that taught me a lot and prepared me for more advanced education later on.

    Step 1: sign up for an info packet
    Step 2: wait a month or 3 for the price to go down by 30% or more

    I did their course many years ago and found it to be very comprehensive.

    it also depends on what your goal is?

    just to advance as a serious hobbist, or a professional?. I don't know about NYI, but for instances, the Altanta Art Institute in photography is basically digital. SCAC does a variety of film techniques as well as Ga. State (or at least they did)

    IMHO, if your looking down the professional avenue, study business management, pr promotion, etc. Those skills can make an adverage photographer and the lack of can take a talent one to the bottom of the heap.
