New England School of Photography

Known for turning out the area’s finest photographers, NESOP also offers workshop classes that allow budding shutterbugs to get top training behind the lens. Once students pass the basic digital-camera and darkroom classes, they dig into studio lighting, portraiture, digital imaging, and street-photography courses, or even put together their own documentary project. Best of all: NESOP’s classes include access to the school’s top facilities, faculty, and exciting community of artists.
