Photography has been immensely popular since its inception more than a 100 years ago, but it’s only recently that smartphones and affordable digital cameras have made photography an extremely accessible hobby. Now more than ever, it’s important to set yourself apart as a photographer.

That’s why the New York Film Academy South Beach Photography School was designed with a modern curriculum to help you stand out in an increasingly crowded field. We’re preparing a new wave of professional photographers by teaching them the photography and business skills to succeed in the modern photography market.

Our renowned faculty of professional photographers works directly with students, helping you develop your own unique voice as you shoot photographs and create images that are immediately recognizable as yours.
