Christina Lloyd, VA
Congratulations to Christina who won 2nd Place at the 2010 VA State Fair in the Scenic/Architectural category.
Tom  Freudenstein, NY


Tom used his NYIP Press pass (which students in our Complete Course in Professional Photography receive) to photograph the 2010 New York Village Halloween Parade. He received a request from Processional Arts, who make puppets for the parade, asking for a permission to publish one of Tom's picture's on their Web site.  They told Tom that "Good images are very hard to come by, and we truly value those few photographers who can capture ephemeral Carnivalesque moments with such a keen eye." Congratulations!

Christopher Correia is still working on his NYIP Complete Course in Professional Photography but he says the Course "has truly helped me expand my love for photography in a business aspect. I now have my own Web site - CJC Photography - and and have been doing work such as portraiture and bridal showers. Most recently I did a maternity photoshoot and will be doing a bridal shower next month. I was also working parttime at Lifetouch Sportography taking individual and team photos at little league games."
