This speech is amazing and worth watching. Robert Deniro gives an amazing speech to NYU Tisch arts graduates.
Photography is an artform like many others. Just like painting, photography requires both a strong technical understanding of the craft as well as a unique creative approach.
Too often new photographers approach photography in a haphazard manner without first acquiring a strong technical understanding of the craft on which later they will be able to hang their creative ideas off of. It`s this technical knowledge which turns photographs from mediocre to great. Knowing how to control light, what to look for in a color palette, how to approach the weight of a scene, how to effectively create a mood, how to control the manual controls of your camera and how to approach an environment to find the strongest possible composition are technical elements that need to be taught to be understood properly.

Our qualified photography instructors will provide one-on-one, personalized feedback on each of your lesson assignments.
We have a partnership with an online art magazine which provides a valuable opportunity for our students to get their work published in a popular online magazine with a readership in the tens of thousands.

How the photography course is structured
Our student HUB is the online community where our students download their digital lecture notes, take online quizzes and upload their assignments for our teachers to personally analyze and provide feedback.
At the end of the course you'll have a completed photography portfolio and you'll be asked to complete a final exam. Upon successful completion of this exam we will mail you a personalized 8x10 course completion certificate.
