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!

Photo Marketing: The Importance of a Website

Last year, we ran a series of photo marketing posts that served as an advice column for up and coming photographers who were looking to take the business of photography to the next level. In that series, I included some advice on setting up your website.


A website for a photo business is important for several reasons:

  1. It gets you noticed online.
  2. It can help drive new business.
  3. It gives you credibility.

And today, a website where you showcase your work and allow people to get in contact with you is almost essential to running a business.

At NYIP, we know that. And that's why we created SiteCatapult, a service designed for photographers who want to take their website to the next level. But we realized after we released it that many of you out there do not have an existing website for us to help improve. And so we went to work creating something specifically for photographers who want to create a website for their photography business.

And today, I'm happy to announce the launch of the SiteCatapult Guide to Building Your Photography Website, a downloadable eBook written for the photographer who doesn't yet have a website. In it, we provide advice on what platform to use, how to get started, and what to focus on as you launch and grow your website in the future.

You can purchase it now from for $19.99.
