Reviews and Testimonials

"Wonderful Experience!". Reviewer: Katie Wilson from Fords, NJ United States. February 23, 2014.
"I have wanted to take a photography course for a number of years but it was difficult finding the right program without paying an exorbitant cost. I could not be happier that I registered at Photo Manhattan as it was a quality program and I can now navigate my camera. Our teacher, Bradford, is a wonderfully patient instructor and a great source for questions about photography and settings. In addition, he teaches with an enthusiastic positive attitude; it is clear this is not just his "job". I am sad that it is over this weekend! I have recommended the school to friends and look forward to my next course."

"Great class with lots of camera time". Reviewer: Jason from New York, NY United States. October 3, 2013.
"Excellent primer on technical aspects of photography coupled with plenty of field exercises. Talented and knowledgeable instructor provided constructive feedback and helped us through some of the more awkward situations one encounters. Would love to see a Street Photography II offered."
