We are always committed to our students

Conventional educational methods often leave you having to remember the concepts you were taught or trying to figure out how to apply them. The method of imparting knowledge, unique to NSPD, is based on the concept of DIY (Do It Yourself). The idea is to equip the students to learn by experiencing real life situations and to deal with the dynamics of the current day environment.

We inculcate a multi-disciplinary approach, which promotes teamwork and creativity at the same pace with a conscious effort to educate the student about both art and business. We have a team of highly experienced photographers who help you get to an expert level quickly.

The Northeastern School of Photography and Design method leaves you applying what you learned naturally and without effort. Similar to anything you have already mastered, in our photography courses and in workshops you learn by direct personal discovery. From this experience a new skill is yours forever.

The NSPD method is more like coaching than teaching, more like conversation than lecture. All this will definitely enhance the carrier of the candidate and culminate it to a zenith.
