New York, NY – July 30, 2012
On July 30th, the New York Institute of Photography answered the calls of thousands of graduates when they launched the NYIP Alumni Association. For the first time, NYIP-certified photographers all over the world will be invited to join a private online community developed especially for them.
Founded in 1910 in New York City, NYIP is the world’s largest and oldest photography school. The alumni association will offer thousands of graduates all over the world a variety of member benefits, including a social networking community, business listings, a photography job board, webinars and events, and more.
“At NYIP, we’ve always stayed by our commitment to support our students long after they graduate,” said NYIP Director Chuck DeLaney, “and this community is something we hope will benefit our photographers no matter what their goals are in the field.”
For years, photographers who’ve completed one or more of the courses offered by the New York Institute of Photography have asked how they can connect with other alumni. In addition to the opportunity to befriend and learn from their peers, members of the NYIP Alumni Association will be able to sign up for free continuing education opportunities and receive discounts on photography gear and accessories.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said NYIP graduate and student advisor Chris Corradino. “Graduates of the program will benefit greatly from the opportunities they’re given as a member of this community of this exclusive community.”
NYIP graduates who want to learn more should read about the NYIP Alumni Association or contact the school.
