RIT in Rochester NY and Brooks Institute should be shut down or sued because they are selling a dream, snake oil to all those paying the tuition because there is not job when they graduate.

People who attend these courses should do more research before hand.

It is not true that there is no jobs, but it is true those who come out of phtography school find no jobs. I know of not a single pro had been to any photography course and everyone that I know who had been to one, do not work in photography. In fact their photos generally arent very good.

Why is that? Because photography is actually a very gear demanding art and a very frontier art. low end gear often will struggle making good image and techniques from 10 years ago do not always work today. You only way to stay on top of the game is not going to those courses but actually learn from these youtube tutorials. they are much more current and more useful.
