New Home, Same Great Content

Over here at the New York Institute of Photography, we're proud to bring you high-quality photography content that supports the top-notch photo education we provide to students all over the world. And we wanted to let you know that we're still committed to producing great content, just not here. For the last 2.5 years, we've filled this blog with tips and tricks, polls and success stories, news and trends, and lots and lots of photos. But this will be this blog's final post.

Last week, we excitedly launched our new school website over at! With that comes a brand new photo articles section that you can check out here.

The new website gives us a chance to highlight more student work, showcase more of what we have to offer, and give students the chance to interact with one another in our (soon to launch) student forum. And the new articles section comes complete with several new writers, hundreds of amazing articles, and two easy ways to stay up to date with all your NYIP content needs. You can subscribe to our free monthly newsletter, or you can subscribe to our RSS feed. Either way, you'll never miss an article!

This blog will stay put, and everything here will live on. But this will be the final post.

We hope that you continue to follow NYIP, and read everything we put out on Thanks to all of our readers for your support!

Apr132012 – Now Open for Business

At NYIP, we don’t like to brag. But we are proud of our school’s long history of providing quality photography education to students all over the world. And in an effort to inform the public on that history, we’ve officially launched a fun new website at

The main purpose of the site is to show off some of the things that don’t get a lot of attention on the primary school website. We’re providing more information on the history of the school, some of our most famous graduates, and some of the members of our staff and faculty that help make the school so great.

NYIP has a long and storied history, including a residential program, an office in Chicago, and a bankruptcy in the mid 70s. And throughout 102 years, we’ve kept our focus and determination on photo education. Learn more about NYIP’s history here.

Just recently we’ve started going back through our records to find out what many of our graduates are up to these days. And what we’ve found has been pretty amazing, even to us. We have some famous alums who have done some incredible things in the field of photography. We’ve featured some of our most famous NYIP graduates here.

And we know that one of the things that sets NYIP apart from other online or distance education photography schools is the personal touch we provide to each student. To highlight that, we wanted to introduce you to some of NYIP’s team members who make that possible.

And a special thanks to all of our students, grads, fans and followers for all your support!
