What is PhotoUno?

PhotoUno is a NYC based digital photography school. It is a dream that was made possible through hard work and dedication. Patricia Burmicky, the head instructor at PhotoUno, began her photography career in Venezuela. However, life decided to transport her and Francisco (her husband) to New York City. It was time for a change and with the opportunity to continue her studies here; Patricia was more than happy to accept the challenge. But how did all of this lead to her teaching? Throughout her life Patricia found she had a knack for teaching. She was able to make things simple and fun for anyone to understand. It started with teaching her friend’s mother, then another, then a friend’s friend, until she realized that people really enjoy the simplicity and the enthusiasm in her way of teaching. With the support of her husband, PhotoUno Photography School came to be. Since then we are happy and proud to say that our photography school has expanded considerably. We can only hope to continue to grow with the help and support of our students.

What is our Mission?

Our mission is pretty simple … We want to provide the hobbyist photographer with the best learning experience. We want to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to become the photographer you want to be. Your next question should be … how is PhotoUno going to help ME become a digital photographer? We are going to provide the best teachers to help you become the best photographer you can be. Our photography courses are designed to be easy and simple to understand, and with a low student to instructor ratio you receive the attention you deserve. That attention, as you will see, comes from our instructors who have gone through a PhotoUno training program in order to insure the consistency in all of our classes. With our spacious and comfortable classrooms, you will find it fun and easy to understand your photography course. There will be nothing you cannot accomplish at PhotoUno!!

What does PhotoUno have to offer?

Our photography school has everything to offer you!! We offer courses for all levels of photographers; whether you are holding a camera for the first time or are ready to learn professional techniques, PhotoUno is always here to help. We also offer workshops and seminars on many different photography subjects. And of course we give private classes, tailored to our student’s specific needs. No matter what you are looking for PhotoUno can help you.

Where will I be learning?

Our school is located on 46th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. We have beautiful ample space to get the hands on training you need with your camera. In order to insure that all of our students are getting the most out of their photography course we take no more than nine students per class. But don’t fret!! We offer more than enough sections to accommodate as many students as many students as possible.

Who will be teaching me?

Our instructors come from many different renowned photography schools. However, they have all gathered here for one sole purpose…their love for photography. Even though they have more than enough knowledge, we provide additional training to insure you have a consistent, positive, and instructive experience at our school.

  • Digital Photography I: Taking Control of Your Camera

    Anonymous review on 11/28/2023
    It was a good course, very thorough. I feel that nothing important was left out as far as photography basics. The small class size afforded me plenty of individual attention and specific help with my particular camera. The teacher answered every question I had. Course structure with homework increasing in complexity each week and reviews to kick off each class made sense to me. I wouldn't have minded even more analysis of different photo examples and more study material on camera mechanics or techniques. Additional extended partnering with classmates where we can learn from each other would also have been helpful. The in-class exercises were definitely great though. I would recommend this course to anyone else who is interested in digital photograpy.

    Really great format for beginners. Each class breaks down on single component with minimal hw to help reinforce those ideas. After you've learned the basics in the first three classes you graduate to full manual mode and practice/learn how to layer all the components in together to achieve your desired effect. 10/10 recommend!

    It was a good class but I felt like the instructor wasn’t the best at engaging students. At times it was clear that majority of students were confused and not able to follow his thought process I did enjoy all the photo exercises outdoor but wish we spent more time outdoors than in a classroom looking at the presentation slides

    This is an introductory class on DSLR photography. I learned an enormous amount in 6 weeks. Leticia, the instructor, was very effective and motivating, and the materials she was teaching from were also strong. My only complaint is that the technology we used to do critique was a bit of a pain.
  • iPhone Photography

    Reviewed by Omari R. on 1/11/2023
    I just got my first iPhone after being team Android ever since I got my first HTC smartphone circa 2010. I'm still getting used to doing things the “Apple way” and PhotoUno's “2-hour iPhone photography class” is an excellent way to accelerate the learning curve of learning to harvest the capabilities of the iPhone camera. We had Francisco (Lyons) as the instructor of the class. We had a small class (4 students) which probably made for a better experience before we all got my individual attention. The class seats up to 9 people. We started the class off with short introductions, then we got into the very basics of photography. Think ISO, shutter speed, aperture, the rule's of 3rd's etc. I already knew most of this, but this was a greater refresher and I felt it was taught at an adequate level for the uninitiated. We got into shooting actually objects and learning about the multiple settings and functions that the stock iPhone camera app makes available. The class is laser focus on the default camera app, and the instructor didn't make mention of any 3rd party apps at any point. Overall, I felt that it was well worth the money. Francisco was great and was excellent at breaking down somewhat complicated subjects to a beginner level. I felt a lot more comfortable using the camera after taking this class.

    Amazing! I am a very visual learner so I was a bit nervous about a virtual class, but Francisco provided many visuals with EXCELLENT descriptions to help us learn. Within just 5 classes, I went from not knowing anything about photography (aside from auto) to knowing how to take real images on manual settings. I HIGHLY recommend this class, and I will be back to take advanced classes soon. Thank you!
