What our students say

Testimonials From Students At MIT School Of Photography
Here is What Few Of Them Have Said !!!

  • "I am from the first batch of MITSOP. I was entering a new phase of life of photography. It seemed very difficult for me at first. But the support and guidance I received from the faculty of MITSOP made it very easy for me. I could rely on them for any difficulty or doubts I had. I was given step by step guidance. Starting with the Principal, HOD and Mentors I consider these three people "The Three Pillars" of my life. The environment at MITSOP is very friendly. You get to learn a lot."

  • "My diploma course at MITSOP was literally life-changing. It was just the platform I needed to step up my photography. Under the guidance of the wonderful staff like Akshay Sir, Kumar Sir, and Ashwini ma'am, it was much easier to grasp the vastness of the technicalities as well the art. Everyone had some unique form of wisdom that they were "always" willing to share. It's just up to the receiver of how much he/she can receive and make use of all that. Beautiful and pleasant premises of the classroom as well as the studios. A one year journey that has made quite a mark on my career for which I'm extremely grateful."
