The New York Daily News featured his images of a car accident on the newspaper's website - photographs he took after using his NYIP PhotoWorld Press Pass.  one of Rafique's photographs was used in a calendar for a company in Bangladesh. And, since Rafique's often asked to take photographs for birthdays, anniversaries, sweet sixteen, seasonal and housewarming parties, he's planning on opening his own photo business later this year. Way to go Rafique!

I couldn't have done it without the wonderful resources and program I finished from NYIP!!!"

 

Stefan Neagu, Romania

Congratulations to Stefan Neagu who just had his first solo exhibition featuring his interpretation of various art sites in the town of Onesti, Romania.  Stefan used multiple exposures,collage and zoom-out techniques in his photographs of sculptures, monuments and mosaics made between 1960-1970, and which have been forgotten and left into oblivion. Stefan says his project was a success and soon all those sites will be reconditioned. Check out this exhibit online and on Stefan's blog.

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:
 
 Sandy Tyler, New York
Congratulations to Sandy who just published a children's book called "Herkimer's Big Day." Sandy says that the "images submitted to me by my illustrator weredone freehand and the colors were dull. I was able to enhance all of the images through my experience as a beginner using Photoshop. I am only half way through NYIP's Digital Photography Course and I have already gained so much. Thank you NYIP." If you are interested in purchasing "Herkimer's Big Day", it's available on Amazon.
 

Antoinette Addison, California
Congratulations to Antoinette whose photo "Pure Love" won first prize in the Wild Wings competition run by the Wildling Art Museum. Antoinette took the photo of the two King penguins on the Sub-Antarctic Island of South Georgia. It will be on display at the museum as part of an exhibit on birds. Antoinette says she "could not take a decent photo for love nor money until I started your course -- it is nothing short of a miracle!! Thank you NYIP!"

Scott P. Baker, Ohio
Scott's photo of a controlled Fire Department burn of an abandoned house in Northwood, Ohio was published in the local weekly newspaper, The Press. Scott says that the main photographer for the paper is an NYIP graduate. Congratulations, Scott!

Marcio Silva,Massachusetts
Marcio has had terrific success selling his photographs to various micro stock photo agencies including iStockphoto, Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Fotolia, and Photospin. He has over 2000 images, mostly travel, nature and macro photos, placed with these stock agencies. In fact he's made so much money selling stock images that he's been able to purchase two new cameras and over a dozen lenses with money from his sales! Marcio recently started working with a wedding studio in Lowe, Massachusetts as well.

  

Nora Devane, North Dakota

 Nora recently participated in a art show in Chicago and was thrilled to report that she sold a print of her photo, "Rays of Hope."

Ray and Linda Whiting, Oregon
Ray and Linda are both students in the NYIP Professional Course and have had photographs and articles published in the local weekly newspaper, the Douglas County News. But having that success took quite a bit of perserverence according to Ray. "I was looking through the NYIP photo assignments and saw that I needed a newsworthy picture, and my son was leading the Cub Scouts on their annual pine wood derby. So I decided to see if he would let me cover it.  After I got done I called one of the local papers and was turned down because the pictures looked posed (some were the awards and final group) but after moping a bit I decided to try another and they also wanted me to write an 4-5 hundred word article for it so I did. The next day after turning in the article the editor called and wanted us to do an assignment at the senior center in town about a wood carvers annual show. So we did it and the 500 word article. Both were on the front page of the paper.We did not get paid for it but it was a lot of fun and seeing our stuff in the paper was a great rush."
 
Robin Thompson, Colorado
Robin's beautiful photo of birch trees framing autumn color won First Place and the People's Choice award in the Parachute, Colorado "Anything Goes" Art Show. Robin says the awards "came as a shock to me because I had entered for fun, but was pleasantly surprised by the win and even more excited to win the People's Choice award since that meant that the general public enjoyed my photograph. Thank you NYIP for knowledge necessary to produce this winning image!"
 

Peter Bednarz, Virginia
Peter won second place in an online photo contest for his photo of waterdroplets on a watch. He says he's glad he took the NYIP course since his confidence has improved so much that he's hoping to start making money this summer photographing family reunions. Congrats and Good Luck!

Here are some recent NYIP success stories:

He's been a successful wedding photographer for thirteen years and has been voted "the Best of the Best" by the readers of Oklahoma Magazine for seven straight years. Congratulations!
