    Hi I just recieved in the mail some promotional stuff about the New York
    Institute of Photography, about doing a correspondence photography course.I
    would love to know if anyone here knows anything about them/the course/the
    content or the value of doing it?

    I've been doing it about 6 months and am enjoying it.
    I'm surprised with the effectiveness of the format and must say I'm taking
    longer than I thought. Taking pictures for projects is the hardest thing
    for me - the reading, tapes etc are very old fashioned but I can appreciate
    the traditional material. I am paying by the month.

  3. I'm doing the course. I've been on it over a year but its only because I'm
    doing it very part time and have taken on extra work lately.

    I must say that I think the course is excellent. It really gets your basics
    established. I don't find the materials old fashioned at all. There are
    audio tapes (I guess they could issue CDs), booklets and videos (They could
    issue DVDs). The formats are not the latest but the materials are first
    rate. They've been teaching photography since 1910. I also have a friend on
    the course and he also loves it.

    I highly recommend it.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    only self taught. I had a moderate understanding of the technical and
    technique aspects without the formal education. I still plan to go further
    with study after this course tho - I'm using it as preparation for a diploma
    on photography
