The course was very enriching, and my student advisor as well as my instructor were outstanding. I liked the auto CD lesson guides as well as the Weekend Photo Workshop DVD video programs. The NYIP training brought out my artistic side, and let me develop more of my love in photography. Thank you NYIP & your staff.
