Hi,
I am a newbie looking for a good course in photography. Recently I came across this offering from the NY institute of photography. Has any fellow CSers taken this course or do u know anyone who has taken this course? Is it worth the money ? Looking for some feedback.

Have you tried RMIT - Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology? They offer full time photography courses too.

Plus it's cheaper to study in Australia than the States. Photography is all about yourself and your own initiative to expand. When I was studying in RMIT, I spend most of my time shooting by myself and coming up with my own set of portfolio.

Of course you need some guidance along the way to make sure your portfolio is up to industry standard.

If you check on some past threads, this has been discussed before. Try doing a search on RMIT, Photography Schools/Institute, and Education. I am sure it will pop up.

Do a search in Kopitiam thread as it was discuss before in there.

NYIP offers home study, non-degree courses. It's different from a full fledged varsity programme.

It's not just about exposure. It's where the action and money is. The US is the place to be.

The thread starter is asking about home study course, the course fee for NYIP is about S$2K, not studing photography at oversea.

I have heard someone sign up the course but yet no one ever told me that they have complete the course...

NYIP is run by an organization that does many home study courses. I personally did not take the NYIP course, but knew people who did. The general concensus is positive.

I don't think that I have the luxury to take a break from work and do a full time residential course (although I would love to do one ).

The NYIP course can be taken at home. There is a part time course from Nanyang Poly as well. But from the looks the NYIP course looks more established .....they have been around since 1910.

Nothing beats going to other the place to study.

Home study is ok but it's the exposure in other countries that matters most.

You don't really need to be in NY to be a successful photographer. Action can be anywhere you want to be. Australia is cheap but it's a great place to study. Plus your parents pocket must be deep enough.....

It's all about opening up your own opportunity.

If you can make it in Australia and Singapore, you can make it anywhere.

I was interested in the NYIP course for a while, but turned off by the fact that the materials were provided on tapes and videos only. No CD/DVD. This was still the case in April this year. :dunno:

NYIP is home study course. Home study is all about discipline & ur own passion. My own mentor is 1 good example. He hs been shooting for Porche every year.

You mean Porsche?

Yes home study is partly disclipine. Still there is nothing like being there in an institution to learn from the lecturers. Photography is 80% practical and 20% theory. When you do setups, it's great if someone like your lecturer can guide you.

Yes you need a basic portfolio to enter with at least a credit in English in "O" Levels. If you a basic Diploma in Art discipline would be easier as well.

MOST important is of course $$$$$$$

Portfolio can consist a mixture of Landscapes, Black and White, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography and so on. Only show your BEST work.

Danny, thanks for sharing on your experience with RMIT during the wedding. Another question. With an arts-related diploma, or whatever diploma, is there a possibility of accelerated course in RMIT?
