Photography School NYC

What is PhotoUno?

PhotoUno Photography School is a dream that was made possible through hard work and dedication. Patricia Burmicky, the head instructor at PhotoUno, began her photography career in Venezuela. However, life decided to transport her and Francisco (her husband) to New York City. It was time for a change and with the opportunity to continue her studies here; Patricia was more than happy to accept the challenge. But how did all of this lead to her teaching? Through out her life Patricia found she had a knack for teaching. She was able to make things simple and fun for anyone to understand. It started with teaching her friend’s mother, then another, then a friend’s friend, until she realized that people really enjoy the simplicity and the enthusiasm in her way of teaching. With the support of her husband, PhotoUno Photography School came to be. Since then we are happy and proud to say that our photography school has expanded considerably. We can only hope to continue to grow with the help and support of our students.

What is our Mission?

Our mission is pretty simple … 

We want to provide the hobbyist photographer with the best learning experience. We want to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to become the photographer you want to be. 

Your next question should be … how is PhotoUno going to help ME become a digital photographer?

We are going to provide the best teachers to help you become the best photographer you can be. Our photography courses are designed to be easy and simple to understand, and with a low student to instructor ratio you receive the attention you deserve. That attention, as you will see, comes from our instructors who have gone through a PhotoUno training program in order to insure the consistency in all of our classes. With our spacious and comfortable classrooms, you will find it fun and easy to understand your photography course. There will be nothing you cannot accomplish at PhotoUno!! 

What does PhotoUno have to offer?

Our photography school has everything to offer you!! We offer courses for all levels of photographers; whether you are holding a camera for the first time or are ready to learn professional techniques, PhotoUno is always here to help. We also offer seminars and workshops on many different photography subjects. And of course we give private classes, tailored to our student’s specific needs. No matter what you are looking for PhotoUno can help you.

Where will I be learning? 

Our school is located on 46th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. We have beautiful ample space to get the hands on training you need with your camera. In order to insure that all of our students are getting the most out of their photography course we take no more than nine students per class. But don’t fret!! We offer more than enough sections to accommodate as many students as possible. 

Who will be teaching me?

Our instructors come from many different renowned photography schools. However, they have all gathered here for one sole purpose…their love for photography. Even though they have more than enough knowledge, we provide additional training to insure you have a consistent, positive, and instructive experience at our school.

With this said COME AND MEET OUR STAFF!!!
