I would look at Lynda.com or KelbyTraining.com. They both have good explanations as to what they cover in the courses and in Lynda's case they list each subject in the course. Kelby may as well I am just not a fan of them.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

My interests are: photojournalism, sports and architecture.

I have been informed about them but are they recognised institutions? The kind that can be used on a resume?

Read the tutorials in my signature link. They'll give you a good foundation in the basics of photography.

Thank you but I got the basics down and understand them (still practice them) but I am looking for intermediate to advanced.

The New York Institute of Photography is the only one like that that I'm aware of -- in other words, a photography "institute" that offers online education, rather than an online site that offers tutorials, correct?

I take it you have read the Digital Photography Books by Scott Kelby?

As Tony said, NYIP is the only one that comes to mind immediately when thinking of something from a "recognized institution" you could put on a résumé. You may want to check with your local colleges to see if they offer any such courses....more and more schools are offering online curriculum.

Many pro photographers conduct seminars which I'm sure would be greatly beneficial, but they're not online and I doubt they'd be considered "recognized institutions" as such.

Yes, i'm looking for an institution more than online tutorials. Have you ever taken courses from NYIP ? And if so, would you recommend it ?

I've seem some tutorials by S Kelby and greatly appreciated them...I still look for his tutorials as I think they are great. But I want an actual diploma from an actual recognized institute.

I will look into NYIP courses, read up on them and see how good they are, if they are recognised in the pro world of photography. As for seminars, they would be helpful and I would greatly learn from them...but as mentioned, i want an actual diploma from a recognized institution.

Does your local community college have anything suitable?

Yes they do but i need it to be an online course as i have a full time job and a family. I need something that allows me to do it on my own schedule.
