The New England School of Photography was founded in 1968 by the Academy-Award nominated cinematographer John H. Carruthers. Located in Boston, Massachusetts, the school was started to fulfil the need for trained and qualified photographic media professionals in the Boston area. The Professional Photography program the school offers is a sixty week course during which the student is given intense training in the nuts and bolts of the art of photography. They also have the option of choosing from a wide range of majors. Not only does the Boston area provide a vibrant landscape for photography, but students are usually quickly integrated into the tight-knit photography community in the city. With the school’s website in itself a work of art, the school sure does strike a lasting impression.
