Working as a Photographer
does anyone have an opinion or advice about the possibility of entering a career in photography without having a degree in the subject? or, perhaps a better way to pose my question would be to ask how i could learn just as much without entering a program. i am interested in working on a photographic project, as well as learning everything i can about the subject, but am not entirely sure the best approach. my goal is to have a depth of knowledge and skill equal to those with a degree which might just mean that i have to actually enter a program. not sure. while i realize there are several classes offered in the area on the subject, the majority of them are taught at night or on the weekends. with 3 kids to care for at night and weekends i am looking to find classes/instruction during the weekdays. advice, suggestions or resources? thanks! -hopeful shutterbug
If you want to be a fine art photographer, as opposed to a commercial photographer, that is a slightly different story. I think you will benefit from being in a school environment with other people doing the same thing you are, and having your work critiqued by Jthe instructor and other students.
If you woud like to discuss this further, I will be happy to give you more information. Feel free to send me an email. Misha
