The Academy for Media Production (AMP) offers some of the most focused digital media production programs in the country. The courses and assignments at AMP provide each student with a solid foundation in multimedia work; whether they choose to pursue a diploma in Recording & Sound Technology, or Photography & DSLR Video, our students enter as creative individuals, and leave as media professionals.
AMP offers two different focuses in media production, emphasizing hands-on education and practical training for employment while also helping to cultivate students' artistic abilities.
Photography and DSLR Video
The Academy for Media Production’s Photography program is designed to give each student a solid foundation in still photography and DSLR video production. Our focus is on training for a career, therefore we emphasize the commercial and portrait skills that are needed to enter this field. Video production is included in the photography diploma program. It is designed to give each student a solid foundation in camera operations, cinematic techniques, sound for video and video editing.
The Academy For Media Production is currently the only private licensed audio production school in the state of Pennsylvania. Our college-level diploma program offers the same amount of audio training as most 4-year colleges, but at a fraction of the price.

Attending the Academy for Media Production helped me jumpstart my career in photography and videography. They prepared us with all of the knowledge and skills in a traditional classroom setting, along with a ton of hands-on demonstrations. They put a large focus on real world learning opportunities and made sure each student knew how to effectively run a business. The instructors always took time out of their busy schedules to help in any way possible. Before I had even graduated from the program, I already had accepted a job in the field. I have come back many times since I left and have always found the help I needed.

My time at Academy for Media Production started by attending their summer workshop. I learned a lot during the week and it also included a real world experience. After the workshop I knew I wanted to attend AMP. The program allows you to learn all aspects of photography including video. They have a state of the art facility along with great instructors and just about every piece of equipment you need. During my time at AMP I had a lot of real work experiences from photographing Civil War artifacts to working with makeup artists, fashion models and an accomplished fashion photographer. By graduation not only did I have an education, I was prepared to hit the ground running. I had my website set up, banking was ready to go, all my contracts were ready to go, I even had three weddings booked before I graduated thanks to the wedding portfolio I was able to build during Wedding Week. One of the best benefits of AMP, besides your education, is after you graduate, you do not become just another number, the door is always open. The staff is always there to assist you with questions you may have about photography. I graduated from the program over a year ago and I am still able to go back to discuss how to negotiate jobs and contracts! I would highly recommend the Academy for Media Production.
