photography program, nonprofit photography program, after-school photography program

NYC SALT began in 2005 as a small photography class of six urban teenagers from Washington Heights armed only with disposable point and shoot cameras. Today, the program has more than tripled in size, and now provides students with training in cutting-edge digital technology, taught by working professionals at the top of the photographic industry.
NYC SALT is unique in connecting urban teenagers with these highly successful professionals.  Every NYC SALT instructor has at least fifteen years of experience in his or her field. NYC SALT’s teaching professionals don’t just provide NYC SALT students with top-quality instruction: they offer students exposure and access to the highest levels of the industry, teaching not just the art of photography, but also the business. 
Students meet each week for structured classes and photo shoots.  They also participate in field trips, including visits to CNN, Miramax Pictures, MTV, Sports Illustrated, Bloomberg News, the International Center of Photography, apple picking, The New York Historical Society, The Photo Expo, Syracuse University, and The Lucie Awards (the "Oscars" of the photography industry).  The program also encourages students to pursue higher education through college visits.  In 2008 and 2009, several NYC SALT students received scholarships to attend the prestigious summer photography program at Syracuse University.  
NYC SALT also hosts frequent showings of student photography.  Students are delighted to receive attention from their work and the shows give them confidence and business experience that will serve them throughout life.
