NYIP Student Success

Many NYIP members have won prestigious awards in contests and photo fairs or have had their work exhibited in galleries. Other NYIP members are building careers shooting weddings, press events, corporate and commercial assignments, or have received professional recognition and publication of their photos. Here are some recent NYIP success stories:


Peter Mandzuk, Danbury, CT

Congratulations to Peter who had two photos published on the Danbury News Times Web site. Peter was stuck in traffic but had his camera with him and was able to take these photos of a car fire.


Kelvin P. Ringold, Sr., Liverpool, New York

Kelvin is a 1989 Graduate of our Complete Course in Professional Photography who says he "got his 'real' start in photography from NYI." In 2008-2009, he served as the 104th President of the Professional Photographers' Society of New York State, Inc (PPSNYS, Inc), headquartered in Albany, NY and was also awarded the PPA National Award for Meritorious Service to Professional Photography.


Jose Alejandro Flores Tino Aguirre, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

A recent NYI graduate, Jose took the photo essay he completed for one of his NYI projects to Puerto Vallarta's Department of Culture where, much to his surprise, they offered to exhibit his photos at City Hall.


Pablo Reyes, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Pablo has had great success with his photographs. He photographs major fashion events for Television & Celebrities Magazine and has even had a photo published on the cover. Recent work includes images of Dominican rock star Janio Lora's newest CD. Pablo says that when he "took classes at NYIP, where I learned many other tips that made my images pop up, and my pictures started to be published in some national newspapers too. I started my studio CleverXposure Photography after the recommendations of NYIP." He considers himself a fashion photojournalist and says he's applied those styles to his portait and wedding images. Pablo has also become a photography teacher and is giving courses and tips to the new passionate young photographers in Dominican Republic. Congratulations!

R.P. Granson, Pensacola, Florida

NYIP student, R.P. Granson of Pensacola, FL,  has had three pet photos accepted for inclusion in the 2011 Meals-On-Wheels Pet Calendar sponsored by the Pine Meadow Veterinary Clinic. Proceeds from calendar sales will go toward assisting elderly people who have been sharing their "meals" with their pets because they couldn't afford pet food and were reluctant  to have their pets removed to shelters or foster homes.
