Calling All NYIP Alumni: We’re About to Make You Very Happy

Students and alums have been asking for years why we don’t have an alumni association. And we’re tired of having to come up with excuses.

In just 3 weeks, we will officially launch the NYIP Alumni Association!

We can’t wait, and we know you can’t either. And for those of you who are itching for more information about the who, the what, and the how, some of the basics are below (the stuff I’m allowed to giveaway). But before I do that, I wanted to let you know that we’re giving one lucky reader of this blog post the chance to win a free year’s membership.

How to Win:

  • You must be a student or graduate
  • Share this blog post on Twitter or Facebook
  • Leave a comment below with your Twitter handle or email address

We’ll pick one winner at random next week and let you know.

Benefits of the NYIP Alumni Association:

1. An active social network of photographers all over the world who’ve taken one of NYIP’s photography courses

Facebook and Twitter are great for connecting with everyone and their mothers, but where else can you find a social network devoted to photographers who’ve graduated from your school. In the NYIP Alumni Association, you’ll be able to chat with other photographers around the world, set up groups based on your interests and passions, find people in your area to meetup or network with.

2. Discounts from photography-related retailers and manufacturers

When you’re a student, getting discounts is easy. But after you graduate, people expect you to pay full price. We didn’t think that was fair. So now, NYIP Alumni Association members have access to exclusive discounts from our partners, from Topaz to Multiblitz. It’s like having a student ID card to carry around for life.

3. A nationwide photography job board

One of the things we hear most often from graduates is whether or not we offer any kind of career assistance. The answer is, we’re working on it. And as a starting point, we’ve included a job board as part of the NYIP Alumni Association that lists jobs for photographers all over the country, sortable and searchable by location, pay, and other job details. Find your next big client or get your first big break through the NYIP Alumni Job Board.

4. Free business listings for you and your photography business

Looking for new clients? We can help. When you’re a member of the NYIP Alumni Association, we give you a free listing in our online photography business listings. People can search for and find you for a job, sort based on type of photography or geographic region, and link straight to your website. We get calls all the time from people looking to hire our graduates, and now we have a place to send them. Get your name and business listed today.

5. Webinars and events hosted by NYIP and its partners

Attend live online webinars and live events hosted by NYIP. Webinar topics will range from continuing education in the field, to interviews with professional photographers, to live Q and A with NYIP and it’s partners. Live events will include meetups all over the world, destination photo tours and trips, and live photography seminars in different parts of the country. Members of the Alumni Association will receive free invitations to many webinars and events, and will pay a reduced fee to attend others.
