Learn How to Become a Photographer
In NYFA’s 2-Year Photography Program, students gain advanced knowledge and skills in commercial, fine arts and documentary photography through hands-on projects. Students begin with the one-year program curriculum, completing projects and exercises designed to establish and refine fundamental skills. In the second year, students progress to more advanced topics, and receive training in the art, craft, and business of contemporary image-making.
The goal of the program is for students to understand photography’s visual language and aesthetic theories, and learn to incorporate these in their creative work. Students also learn to manage their brand as a photographer, and build advanced knowledge in Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and Lightroom.
Students that fully commit to the 2-Year Photography Program walk away with a strong set of skills and techniques, as well as a series of photographs and projects for a competitive portfolio. Upon graduation, students will earn a college credit-bearing Certificate. As students begin with the one-year curriculum, NYFA welcomes individuals with all levels of experience.
