Student Testimonials

What our students are saying.

We can tell you about our programs all day long, but it will mean so much more coming from our past students.

This is the place to open your new-camera box or expand on knowledge you already have. Take a leap of faith, go forth with your decision, it will not be one of regret. I have gained knowledge and friendships that will last for the rest of my life. Take a ride on the wild side; you will eat, drink, and sleep photography for 6 weeks and you will love each moment.

I learned more about photography in the first two weeks coming to RMSP than I did in my two years attending a very good art school.

I was certainly on the fence whether to go to RMSP or college to study photography. I honestly didn’t believe them when they said they’d fit four years of college into one year at RMSP, and, “Was I really going to be able to pay my bills with this later?” ... Looking back, I’d do again in a heartbeat. Turns out, they actually weren’t kidding about fitting four years of college into one year. They meant it when 40% of classes at RMSP covered business. I really did leave there knowing what to do to become a full time photographer, and most importantly having the confidence to do it.
