What an amazing value! Instead of continuing to monkey around attempting to teach myself photography through YouTube videos, books, etc. I made the right decision to spend six weeks in Missoula for RMSP's Summer Intensive learning photographic theory then applying that theory through field shoots that further deepened our understanding. Each concept was strategically built up and reiterated in different ways throughout the various classes so that traditional homework and cramming for tests was not required (Thank God) to learn effectively. I highly recommend the Summer Intensive and if I didn't have family obligations - would jump at the chance to further my education with the Professional Intensive.

I have been taking photographs for 50 years on and off as a sideline to a busy professional career. When I retired at the beginning of 2018, I was looking for a photography program that would give me a more solid grounding in basics and also exposure (so to speak) to aspects of photography I knew little about (e.g., off-camera flash and night photography). SI did that very well in a reasonable period of time, in a nice setting with a group of welcoming and enthusiastic people (instructors and students). SI also included critical reviews of photographs from an artistic point of view that went beyond technical photography and gear. For me, that was a new experience and quite useful. I'm from New York City and was not able to find a comparable program there. It was worth the trip.

Before I came to RMSP I was so lost in my photography and I was struggling to produce quality work I was proud of. Living in a fully immersed photography community for six weeks has opened up my world to so many other types, genres, and perspectives to explore. Being at this school has allowed me to gain the confidence I needed as a photographer and It has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone. And the instructors are all amazing at what they do. There wasn’t one class that I was not excited to go to and was so inspired by all of them. My time at RMSP was exciting, challenging, and exhausting, but it was a summer I will never forget.
