Hey, 1st thread here. Im intrested in a carreer with photography. i have been shooting off and on for the last few years. beyond the basics i dont know much. however i have been told i have a good eye for it. im 25 and have been to college but EXTREMELY dislike the profession i chose. the only up side to it is that its REALLY good money, but it is hard work. i found there is a tech school close to home that offers a 2 year degree in digital photography/image processing. i know photography isnt something that can be tought, i know there is ALOT of art involved. so here is whare i stand. i like taking photos(mostly nature/landscape shots) and i love to be outdoors. if i could make a living doing this i would be a happy camper. so my question is how imparative is it that schooling is necessary? have any of you gone to school for it? and if so whare did you start off in the industry? i dont know anything about the industry but i imagine its a hard one. being that every industry with art involved is hard to make a decent living. so any info you can give will help. thanks!
