NYIP's Professional Photography Course has trained more successful photographers than any other school in the world. Whether you're new to the field or you've been at it for years and would like to boost your skills, earn money, or start a new career, our Course will help you. We promise to make you a better photographer, and to teach you the skills you need to take professional-quality photos.
I found the course to be excellent. The audio CDs and DVDs are very useful and worth revisiting time and time again. I would recommend this course to anyone that would like to extend their photographic knowledge and/or pursue a career in photography.

The New York Institute of Photography is the world's largest and oldest photography school. Founded in 1910, NYIP has been successfully graduating photographers all over the world for over 100 years. Our affordable home-study courses allow students anywhere to learn the photography skills that they need from New York City's professional photographers.
The NYIP Professional Photography Course consists of 30 lessons, each of which is supplemented by page-by-page guidance on NYIP's "Listen and Learn" audio programs and step-by-step demonstrations on NYIP's "Live Action" video programs. We create all our own photography course teaching materials - they are unlike any other photography lessons, and you won't find them anywhere else.
We promise to make you a better photographer. And we do that by connecting you with professional photographers who review your photos and offer tips on how to improve them.
I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to be a better photographer. NYIP is like interning with the best photographer you know.
