    Students in the One Year Photography Certificate program at the Los Angeles Campus of the New York Film Academy will show their work at the prestigious Ed Freeman Gallery, 945 Chung King Road, Los Angeles.

    The opening night reception is Friday, August 30, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.

    The exhibition continues through September 15, 2013. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 1:00 to 6:00 PM.

    Closing night reception, Saturday, September 14, 7:00 – 10:00PM.

    For further information, contact Bobbi Fabian, Chair of Photography at or 818-333-3558.

    The exhibition, which features the work of five outstanding young photographers, (listed below) is free and open to the public.

    The five featured photographers who explore divergent paths of the photographic image are:

    Born in the Philippines, Joseph Bornilla creates narratives that anthropomorphize everyday kitchen objects and food.

    Nicole Campbell, from Nashville, TN, obscures the landscape through plastic, steeping the scenery in a candy-colored spectrum. She reflects her inner feelings, lending her work “a serenity and clarity that is often unattainable in the city.”

    In Luc-Richard Elie’s project, Half Man/Half Amazing, we are asked to examine our own duality. The Brooklyn, NY, photographer’s subjects undergo a physical transformation for the camera, using their bodies as a canvas for self-expression. 

    Los Angeles native Liam Hayes questions the dearth of the male nude in the photo-historical canon of art. His images elevate the male body, asking us to find beauty in diversity.  “I want people to be intrigued. To follow those lines that make up ‘Man’ … Appreciate our differences.”

    Aanchal Kalra’s project, Cocoon, represents the moments in life that seem unphotographable. Born in India, she seeks out people in situations of self-reflection or abandon, giving us an opportunity to bear witness to the most private of worlds.

    These students and their work reflect the international power of visual storytelling, taught at the New York Film Academy. The Los Angeles campus of the New York Film Academy offers several Photography programs – MFA, BFA, One and Two Year Certificate and 8 week workshops.  For more information, please visit or contact Bobbi Fabian, Chair of Photography at or 818-333-3558.

    We look forward to seeing you on August 30!

  • NYFA Supports the NIAAA

    The New York Film Academy whole-heartedly supports the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). NIAAA is well known as a national leader in research on harmful drinking among college students. The institute offers vital information for students and parents on such abuse. “The ultimate goal of the NIAAA’s efforts in college drinking research is to share science-based information in accessible and practical ways to give college administrators, parents, and concerned students a foundation for alcohol intervention activities.”

    NYFA encourages its students to know the consequences of alcohol consumption and the impact excess drinking may have on his or her life. We also recommend parents to visit their website in order to properly educate their child, before sending them off to one of NYFA’s city campuses. Accidents and serious health issues can be avoided with the proper knowledge. So, don’t hesitate to take the time out to discuss this important matter with your loved ones.
