WSP Incorporated

Welcome to the WSP Incorporated website. WSP Incorporated was formed in August of 2016 after the demise of the Washington School of Photography (WSP). Several of the long-time instructors at WSP (including myself) took it upon themselves to form an organization to take over the teachout of the Professional Program (PP) students of WSP who were currently at various stages in the state approved PP.

We are doing that, with the blessing of the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC), with no loss of classes for those students. One class has already graduated, and a second class is well on their way through the 1 year long program.

We also considered for a short time to continue the state program, but after some thought and consideration, we have decided to go our own way and start up an organization which is not technically a school, but which offers workshops and classes which we feel are the best to provide students with a thorough and complete photographic education, both those just starting out as well as the many who already have some experience but feel a need to enrich their current skills with new or different techniques or knowledge.

We are calling this new organization the Maryland Photographic Workshops, or MPW. You can find more information about this new organization and our excellent suite of classes and workshops that are offered at their new website,

MPW is still located in the same building at the previous WSP, at 12276 Wilkins Ave, Rockville, MD, 20852. We have a 1000 square foot fully equipped, professional quality studio where we hold both classes and workshops (see photo of our studio below). We have a variety of highly qualified, professional photographers who serve as your instructors, and we have the desire to share our extensive photographic knowledge with all of the students in our programs.

We hope that YOU will be one of those students! Come visit us at our website and join us for some amazing opportunities to expand your photographic knowledge.
