I'm doing freelance work here, shooting almost everything.. and I want to improve.. I've seen the works of students and I'm thinking of enrolling.. I know it's cheaper if I pay in full but If I pay in full it would take a while for me to save up for that much, I can sort of make enough for the monthly plan though and can start ASAP.. which do you think it's better? btw.. I'm living outside the US.

Old post, but since no replied, I'll point out -- no one accepts NYIP credentials for Adobe Student discounts.

Hi!!! i am considering to enroll on NYIP since I have seen most of the people are satisfied with their complete course. Please can anyone tell me how it has been so far? If the lessons are simple or difficult? Or how long does it took someone to finish all the units? Ive heard its a year or so but please I will apreciate it !!!

Another important thing: I have no experience on photography, besides my common digital camera but I ve realized I would love to make it as a professional. Does anyone think this course would work or I need some experience first?

THANK YOU SO MUCH

P.s. Excuse my english, im from outside the states, so im practicing it too :-P

I am currently enrolled in NYIP. I only use digital, I have just mailed my first project into them for review. The first section which I have completed I can tell you is quiet impressive. The information so far applies both to Digital and Traditional Film Cameras. The course is on CD's, and DVD as well as in print. Again, I have just completed the first section, but as of today, I am still happy with my decision to take their course.

But what about the content of the professional course? I read other reviews saying that it was a bit old. I understand NYIP have updated from tapes to CDs,but I would like to hear of anyone who took the course recently and could tell me about the content of it. Does it cover digital a lot as my camera is a digital one, I do not have a film one.
Thank you. I still haven't made up my mind as to sign up for the course or not.

not overly.. don't know what you paid then but I paid about $900 all told (including extra because I live outside of the states.)

I am working on my unit 2, but havent gotten my unit 1 photos back, so I am holding off on taking my pcitures.
03/24/2008 06:29:17 PM · #11
i got unit two almost a month after unit one. actually i got unit two and three at the same time. i didn't want to start those until i "officially" completed unit one. i am loving this course though. it's great!!!
03/24/2008 06:15:05 PM · #12
That's definatly a good thing.... Since I started I've been shooting almost exclusively Manual.. mostly for the practice... now I just want unit 2 to role my way
03/24/2008 06:11:53 PM · #13
oh hush!!! so i am a slacker, what can i say? i am finally learning the manual modes on my camera.
03/24/2008 06:08:48 PM · #14

03/24/2008 06:03:40 PM · #15

I paid in full (haha - with my normal school financial aid) and am in the US, so $648 or something right around there.

Im signing up for the procourse in september.
I am pretty excited.
It seems like a great course!

Whenever I see this thread, I have to say something about the NYIP. They are great people. DVDs are very informative, teachers are very nice. Once you get your tape back from your teacher, it's like sitting in a classroom. He or she actually calls your name and tells you what is good or bad with your photo assignments.

very cool :)
03/05/2008 01:05:10 PM · #19
surprisingly little... I believe I paid $850 ish...(becuase i'm outside the US I have to pay a bit extra for the shipping of everything) you pay a bit more if you do their monthly plan (administration fees etc.)

but for a full course on anything, that's pretty good.

One day when i can afford this course i may try it. But until then I'll continue to learn FREE from the DPCinst. of photography, the DPC dons, youtube-how to videos, photography forums and google :)
03/05/2008 10:38:41 AM · #22
I am really loving it so far. It is making me learn my camera.(and techniques).. or should I say it is inspiring me to learn my camera. Once I am finished ,I have promised myself a nice graduation gift of a 40D.
03/05/2008 10:31:08 AM · #23
Go for it.. it's good stuff... and hey the monopod, and new camera bag alos help :) oh, and the press card (can't wait for that to come), and the new shoot through umbrella (whick will even out my collection to 2), and the personal critique of my work (I'll get my fix from the school so I don't have to whine about the lack of commenting her...lol)

oh and of course the course material is really good too... :)

eta: I'm taking the Professional photography course

This thread oficially changed my mind from 'debating on it' to 'DEFINETLY, CANNOT WAIT'! I've been looking into NYIP for about a year now and this spring I am going to sign up!!

I signed up for the Professional Photography course and I'm digging it so far.

The first lesson is SO full of information! It REALLY good basics so far - I've already learned several things that are really going to help me out in my photography, and I haven't even finished lesson 1 yet. If the rest of the lessons prove as education, this course will definitely be worth every penny!
