SkillsUSA Photography Advisors Workshop



Are you looking to go to college to study Photography, Video Production, Filmmaking or Audio Engineering? Then you came to the right place. The Academy for Media Production (AMP) is a post-secondary school that offers a common sense approach to acquiring the skills necessary to be successful in these exciting media production fields. How? Here are just a few reasons:
1. Affordable tuition: Compared to most private colleges, AMP's tuition rate is much lower. The way we accomplish this is to keep our costs low and pass the savings onto the student without sacrificing the quality of education.
2. Advanced training: AMP's curriculum was designed by professional photographers, filmmakers and audio engineers with university experience. Combining the best of both worlds means that the courses are designed to give you exactly what is needed without the fluff.
3. The combined Photo & DSLR Video Production program is a double major that provides students with 604 clock hours of advanced training. This is approximately 150 more clock hours within the major than is required by most 4-year colleges.
4. Great place to start: Are you interested in an Associate or Bachelor degree? AMP has partnered with other colleges to accept our credits toward their degree program. Why would you consider this? Simple, instead of waiting until your 4th year in college to take these classes, AMP grads who transfer already have the skills to begin working in the field.

There are many more advantages to choosing AMP as your school. We would love to show you around our campus. So give us a call or click on "Let's Talk" below to schedule your visit.

AMP helped me achieve my dream to be a successful artist! I am thankful for the amazing instructors and will carry what they taught me throughout my career as a professional photographer.
Derek Miller - Hanover, PA

The staff at AMP are extraordinary. They are extremely knowledgeable and truly care about their students. Being able to work hands-on with top of the line equipment, and industry professionals is truly an invaluable experience. They helped me build a great portfolio and now I have a job at UPS in their graphic design department.

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.
Grace Crawford - Chambersburg, PA

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.
