Hey everyone!!!!

I found in a catalog about the New York Institue of Photography www.nyip.com
THey only offer a home study program that seems interesting. As I live in Bolivia ( south america) there are not many school of photography around here so i thought this Nyip could be a good chance. Does any of you have done this home study program ??? Have you heard about this institute? Do you know if the teaching is Good?? Well .. i you know or find some characteristic about this Institue please let me know.

Thanks to all of you!!

A respected school, but if I were you...collectively there is over a 1000 yrs of experience here on GG. Kick the hundo to Rolando, become a life time memeber and learn everything here that you would anywhere else in half the time!

Joseph,

I took the NYIP course.
I liked it very much. The course lets you work at your own pace and they teach you the fundamentals of photography. The course consists of workbooks, audio tapes and Videos. The material was created in the mid/late nineties and some of the fashions look funny in the workbooks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
The topics cover developing your eye, exposure, the different types of lenses, color, Darkroom techniques, portrait photography, wedding, glamour etc.
You get assigned a support person that you will send your photo assignments to and they will critique and send you a tape with an explanation of what is good or bad about the image and helpful advice to make it better. (the Monte Zucker wedding seminar tapes are really good too)

I live in an area where there arent too many resources so for me it was a good choice. I also supplemented my studies by joing forums like this one and learning from the critiques that people give each other. I was also fortunate enough to make friends with a very good local photographer who is very generous with his time and knowledge.

If you dont have a local school or college in the area i would say this is a good route to take...

If you have any specific questions about the course feel free to message me.

Hi Joseph,

My younger brother took the course several years ago, but never took it anywhere. I did all my studying through the lens and books on photography and I’ve been with it since 1972. I noticed that one thing the courses didn’t teach was how to pose your model. Not all models come from a modeling school where they teach that so sometimes that lack of that knowledge will show up in a lot of photos.

I try to explain, to the new models I work with, why I have them turn a certain way or sit just so. So if you can find a book or two on posing that will help you also.

Paul

Earl is right about the posing...the instruction is weak in that area. I've been lucky that my favorite subject is my wife and since she has no posing skills i get to practice my communication skills. And i do lots of posing myself to explain to my models what i want [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm about halfway through the NYIP course. Very good especially for someone without any previous background in photography. Good luck...

Hey Rudi,
thnks too much for the advice and telling me your history.
As we know the NWIP gives you a diploma when you finish all the course. My question is : Is this diploma useful for getting a job?? I mean... does it have some value in the US?? or it`s just a piece of paper to hang in your room?? They say in their catalog that it`s aproveed by the new york council or some institution like that.

Thanks again.
