Dont waste your time or money. Although I have learned quite a bit from this school, I could have learned the majority of it on youtube...and $13,000 cheaper!!!!!! The actual intructors are not bad, but deserve a much better teaching venue. The owner Kristie is an absolute nightmare. This school is run by a small minded woman, and 90% of what was advertised on their website ""www.photocareers.cm"" is totally untrue. They claim to be a ""no equipment needed"" school, saying they will supply all equipment....and NO HIDDEN FEES, but then are charging students WEEKLY for use of their 5-10 year old equipment. Their website promises all students recieve a full studio setup (lighting, background stands, etc..) upon finishing their program, totally untrue. They do not give us any equipment for graduation, but are more than happy to have us pay to replace their junk equipment if it breaks. When speaking with the school before enrolling, I was told we were able to take as much money as we needed out in student loans (i mean, helloooo...they are OUR loans.) but once quiting my job and moving to moore to attend this school, they informed me that I was only aloud to take out 3,000 dollars extra for living expenses and equipment. And even that money was to be split up to be given at two different times. The first dispurstment was ""supposed"" to be for 1500, 30 days after starting the program... It took the school FOUR months to give me my 1,500 dollars. When questioning why it took so long, I was givin excuse after excuse, untill I called the board of education, and they told me the school couldnt hand out any student loans because the program WASNT ACCREDITED at the time!! We are supposed to be learning a creative business, but have absolutly NO say over what photographs go into our portfolio! How is this teaching? I honestly feel bad for every single new student I see enroll, because I wish someone had the guts to stand up and say how bad their experience was before I wasted all this money. Please beware of this school, and realize this is not worth the money. If you want to be a serious photographer, get a real degree. Unless you have 9 months and 13,000 dollars just laying around waiting to be wasted.
