NYIP Student Successes

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:
 
Joseph Salonis, Arizona
  
Joseph has had great success getting his work published. His images have appeared on Lance Armstrong's Web site LiveStrong, eHow.com, Trails.com, the San Jose Examiner and the USA Today Travel section, to name just a few. Joseph has only been a student in our Complete Course in Professional Photography for about a year, but he says "None of these things would have
been possible without the support and knowledge I received from NYIP." Congratulations! 
 
Lila Stromer, Illinois

Since graduating from NYIP a year ago, Lila has started her own freelance photography business specializing in headshot, pet, and production photography. Lila was hired to take some photos for a local theater company producing a play by an emerging playwright who was about to be highlighted in American Theatre magazine. One of her photos was published with the story in the November 2010 issue. She also won a prize in the Tree House Humane Society photo contest. You can see her work on her Web Site — LilaStromerphotos.com.
 
Monica Starks, Michigan
 
Images Monica took at a Detroit rally on the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's assassination were published on the We Are One organization Web site. Monica's pictures were also part of an exhibit — Beautiful Detroit! Online Photo Gallery. You can see more of Monica's work on her own Web site.
  
Gary Bengsch, Georgia
 
Congratulations to Gary who won a First Place prize in a monthly online photo contest.  Gary also sells his fine art prints of his photos on his Web site.

 

Sal Cioppa, Ohio

Sal has been so busy operating his wedding photography business that he's had to ask for extra time to complete his NYIP Course. He says, "NYIP has really helped me sharpen my skills and, although I'm still learning and feeling my way, I'm getting better and better." In addition to his Web site — Columbus Wedding Photographers  — Sal has also created a video presentation of his wedding photos on Youtube for prospective clients.

Photo Challenge Winner: Eric Roseberry - Army Pride

Congratulations to NYI Student Eric Roseberry for his winning photo seen below. We asked Eric to tell us a little about how he created this image.  Here's what he had to say:

"This is my son Private Johnathan Roseberry the evening prior to his graduation from basic military training. I wanted to convey a sense of pride in my son, and my belief that his choice to serve is heroic. The classic superman pose and low angle is intended to enhance that feel. The Infantry museum at Fort Benning offers a patriotic setting with a fine display of the flags of the 50 states. I used the flags to direct and hold attention on my son and used a narrow depth of field to limit their potential as a distraction.

Select a subject, draw attention to the subject with size and location in the frame. Eliminate unnecessary elements that draw attention away from that subject.

Camera Settings: 1/640 F4 ISO 200 80 - 200 MM @ 80 mm"

 

 

We thank Johnathan, and all members of the military for their service. We will be sending Eric a number of terrific photography books from the NYIP library for his prize.

Thanks to all who participated!

With so many terrific images in our recent forum challenge, it was tricky to pick just one winner. There was a shot however, that told a story so well that we are proud to congratulate Torrie Cooney for her shot "Facetime with Daddy".

Please join me in congratulating Torrie. We will be sending six excellent photography books from the NYIP library for her prize!

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:
 
Linda Grant, NC
Congratulations to Linda who won 1st Place in the Reptile and Amphibian category in the 2010 North Carolina Wildlife Photo Competition.

Robert Discus, TX

Robert, a recent graduate of NYIP's Complete Course in Professional Photography, has opened his own photography business, Nostalgic Moments Photography, in San Antonio. Robert photographs weddings, Quinceanera events, portraits, and sports photography. According to Robert, he "enjoyed the course overall, it gave me the technical knowledge I was looking for to really be able to master my equipment.  Additionally, that mastery the course provided has given me the launching point for what really makes a great picture so I can continue to grow as a visual artist."

Ralf Schellen, Germany
Ralf, a 2009 NYIP Graduate, has been working as a professional beauty and fashion photographer and opened his own photo studio in Dusseldorf this year. He also shoots weddings and portraits. You can see his work on his Web site.
Michael Crawford, TX
Congratulations also goes to Michael Crawford who had a photo chosen, after a company-wide competition,  to appear in his company's calendar. Michael was told multiple times by both the ad agency and the Director of Marketing that they could have used only his photos for the entire calendar, though they were only allowed to chose one photo per employee.  Michael says that "out of all the photos I submitted, the photo they selected would not have been my choice, though it is quite colorful."
 
Fabian Carrillo, France
Great news from Fabian who just had his first solo exhibition in Brioude, France. He sold enough prints during the first day of the show to cover his expenses and make a profit. Plus, as a result of the exhibition he was hired to photograph pictures for a jewelry catalog!
