rojow, also looking into San Francisco's Academy of Art, and Brooks College in California. Both are very elite art and photography schools. Well, Brooks is. My degree through my college will be from Brooks, they have a parallel relationship with Brooks.

NYIP is not a formal education. It's not accredited by education. It is designed to teach you to take better photographs through self study and projects. But then, it doesn't cost what a college degree in arts does either.

By the way...if you're set on NYIP, check ebay. Often people who've completed the course are selling their products. The downside is you don't get the instructor critique and such that you would via the NYIP corrospondence, but you do get some education.

Check with your local community colleges, it's probably not as expensive as you may think.

Financial Aid is wonderful!

If all you want is the text, buy a book.

in the nyip package you get a book that helps you get your own business set up and there is a freelance book that has all of the magazines that take photos from freelance photogrpahers. they tell you how to sumbit your photos and who to reach and where they are. As far as employment placement no they do not do that.
Hope that helped some.

I have also considered taking the NYIP course when I do have the money to do so. As I'm currently in school for web design, I would have to pay upfront for the course. On their website, which is pretty expansive, evidently, I haven't seen any prices quoted, or maybe I haven't looked indepth enough. It may not be accredited, but at least it would give some sort of look of professionalism to the resume, to be able to quote some NY "Institute"...

I am about 85% through the course.

Pluses:
+ They use several types of media to keep your interest
+ They have some top shelf photographers in their lessons
+ You will learn the basics well
+ You can work at your own pace
+ They do talk about the business side (I am just a hobbiest so did not care)


Minus:
- Seems a little outdated (although the basics never change)
- The critiques are very brief and on tape (I have actually learned alot more here!)

Not sure what you want, but the last three videos(DVD'S) are about wedding photography. I'll never do weddings or group events, but I did get some portrait advice out of the wedding videos.

Its not the end for me, I intend to study with other schools as well. But I think its a good cheap way to get the basics.

Thats my perspective at this point,

If you have an interest in them, get on their mailing list, watch and wait for their deals, I think it starts at $950, I got the package at $750, and recently got mail from them offering the course for around $650.

John, knowing what you know now would you recommend the course or suggest some books or other means?

Also, how are the critiques, would you say they're more valuable coming from them or do you think the critiques here are on par with ones there?

Thanks for any insight.

I would still recommend the course. But I have found many videos/DVDs' at the library that have been usefull. And actually one my best resources has been a DVD I bought that was made to accompany my D200 camera. There are also alot of good books at the library. So there alot of ways to learn, I think its a personal matter. NYIP provides had an orderly systematic way to learn.

I am not impressed with their critiques, its brief and one way, I am not saying there bad its just that I have been reading the threads in the feedback and critique areas here and find them more useful, more eyes and more opinions are better. While there are rules, this is still an art and so it will always be subjective.

I had one picture that went up for sale at my local frame shop, and at the end of this month will be for sale in an art gallery, NYIP gave a less than positive critique, so there you go, subjectivity comes into play.
