Summer Intensive. 11 weeks.

This is your 11-week foundation in all things photography. You can come to RMSP with minimal photographic knowledge and finish with a solid command of the basic technical and creative aspects of the craft. Whether you're fulfilling a lifelong dream of mastering your favorite hobby or pursuing a career in photography, this is your first and most important step toward gaining confidence in your abilities.

Professional Studies. 4 weeks.

Think of Pro Studies as your photography school "majors." Taken during the month following Summer Intensive, these focused courses are your chance to explore a variety of photographic disciplines with leading professionals who openly share tips of their trade from the art and business sides. RMSP offers 11 different courses, each taught by practicing experts in their field.

Advanced Intensive. 6 weeks.

The final—and many say vital—piece of the Career Training puzzle. Advanced Intensive is a six-week masterclass in the business and advanced techniques of professional photography. It's one thing to know how to take a good picture, it's another thing entirely to know how to be a professional photographer.

Each session may be taken separately, but for those wanting a career in photography, we strongly recommend the complete experience: all three sessions.
