For the past four years all I've wanted to do is become a photographer. I love photography; everything about it. It's the only thing I've ever felt so passionate about. I would love nothing more to one day be a photojournalist. But I can't help but think what a struggle I will face to persue a career in art. I was in an art exhibit with Deborah Willis and she told me, "No one will ever encourage you to be an artist, because it's not safe, its not guaranteed." And thats very true. It isn't guaranteed and that is a very frightful thing. What are your guys' feelings on this? I am still young (19 next week ) and don't know much about the business aspect of photography. Is wanting to be a photographer too ambitious? Or any type of artist for that matter?
