Jason says he really enjoys working with children and infants and that the "look on a parent's face when they see how I have captured their children's unique qualities is a treasure that makes my job a lot of fun."

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!

 

Jennifer Lebo, PA

 

Jennifer is running her own portraiture business, Jen Lebo Photography in Pottstown, PA. She takes natural light, on location portrait photography and specializes in children and family photographs. As a sole proprietor, she does all the photographic work as well editing, marketing, selling her services to good success. Jennifer had approximately 50 families book sessions this past year!

 

Christopher Correia, MA

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."

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!
