I am currently enrolled and have only done unit 1, I like it. Like most things I think that you will get out of it what you put into it. I haven't looked at the modeling or fashion book yet. Its very film driven, I do not believe that they are up to date with the digital world at all.

I don't know much about the NY Institute of Photography, but if you are looking for a great photography school that is up to date on not just film, but digital as well, try Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. I have heard all good and nothing bad about it.

The only thing bad about RIT is January, February, and March. The 12' drifts aren't so bad, but you know you're in for a long walk to class when you look out your window and the snow is blowing SIDEWAYS!! Also, there's this funny little yellow-ish orange ball that appears in the sky between about 11AM and 2PM during those months. At other times it stays hidden behind clouds. If it ever fully reveals itself, get yourself to church and start praying. With enough prayer (or animal sacrifice) it will go away and you can resume your dreary, grey-skied day.

I do have many better memories that involve Sinar view cameras, multiple power-packs, spacious studios, and ample darkroom time; not to mention sneak peaks at imaging technology that the general public doesn't get to see for 12-24 months.

Hi Joseph,

I bought into the course years ago. I think I got to about unit 4 or 5 before I stopped doing it. In my opinion, it is great if you are just starting out, don't know what an f-stop is, and you are looking for a lot of basic knowledge. You can get critiques that are a little more extensive than they are here on GG. If you are a bit more advanced than that, you would be better off spending your money on some of the workshops and seminars offered by the fine folks here on GG. I've been to a couple of them and learned quite a bit, but this latest one given by Robert Sanders and Marc Grant was fantastic! True, its not as convenient as going to your mailbox, but they are so much more current that its well worth the time and effort if you truly want to improve and learn.

Best of luck to you!

I did it years ago.....it's good for nuts and bolts info...if you're fairly new...it's actually quite informative. I'm not sure how "digital" they are now.

RIT and NYIP are great schools. Very technically driven as well as Brooks here in Santa Barbara California. Although in my opinion and after researching all of these schools - Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA) has probably the strongest photography program in the nation. Maybe I am biased but I have a reason to.

The instructors at this school are all working photographers, shooting for major advertisers, magazines, etc. Beyond the teaching staff - the school is geared very much around developing each and every student photographer at the school and helping them build their own personal style. The school has it's core classes but is very flexiable in the subject matter. Very conceptual and concept driven.

Sure we all have photographed an apple with 4x5 or a box of cereal. But, they really allow you to shoot what you desire and help you find your passion in photography. Technology - no contest. The digital darkrooms are ahead of the curve, adobe or mac offers new products - they are barely on the shelve for a day before the school has them installed on their computers. Digital prints from wallets to murals. And of course their is still the traditional film users. 35, 120, 220, 4x5, 8x10 you name it - also alternative processes (historial). Everything shy of a drum scanner - just barely.

Digital shooting - the school is backed by Canon and up to date with the newest digital gear. Just the facts...

And my 2 cents... I have an undergraduate degree in photography and have assisted fashion, wedding, and advertising photographers for the past several years. Sure all of that was great for technical and fundamentals. But, Academy of Art is really about refining what you know and expanding upon it conceptually - and nurturing your individual style and vision. Good luck in your choices - but I would be sure to check out Academy of Art and at least give it a once over on your list of choices.
