New York Institute of Photography Launches New Student Benefits Program

Press Release - New York, NY – March 21, 2012

The New York Institute of Photography has launched a student benefits kit for the thousands of photographers around the world who enroll in their home-study programs each year.

NYIP, the world’s largest and oldest photography school, has a long tradition of delivering high quality photography courses to people anywhere in the world. Serving over 20,000 active students in over 70 countries, it can be difficult to provide deals and discounts to everyone. However, with the launch of this new student benefits program, students all over the world will be able to enjoy discounts from retailers and service providers that also reach a global audience.

The world famous home-study photography school is partnering with Collegiate Services, Inc., based in Chicago, IL. Collegiate Services provides one of the largest and longest running discount programs in the North America, serving over 100 schools in the US alone. Through this program, students in any of NYIP’s programs will be able to save on purchases from companies like Verizon, Adobe, Best Buy, and Nik Software.

 “We’ve always tried to do right by our students,” said Chuck DeLaney, Director of NYIP, “and when we had an opportunity to offer aspiring photographers discounts on products they need, we jumped at the chance.”

Famous Alum: W. Eugene Smith

The New York Institute of Photography is proud of our 100+ year record of training great photographers, both hobbyists who have the equipment and want to learn to take better pictures and aspiring professionals. Many of our alums have reached celebrity status, and one of them is certainly W. Eugene Smith.

We salute his creative vision. He pioneered "humanizing" photojournalism, providing amazing and unflinching images from World War II and environmental disasters, and powerful stories for News Week (later Newsweek) and Life magazines - including his still-talked-about profile of Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Smith left his first family behind and moved into a New York City loft to devote his full attention to photography. He left jobs when he wasn't able to call the creative and artistic shots or when editorial policies tried to dictate his photography subjects and slant. He marched to the beat of his own drummer and was a fearless advocate for photography's ability to communicate the soul behind the image. His work and vision continue to inspire photographers through the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund.
