    Hello, my name is Brie and I'm a photographer. I do commercial and advertisement photography under the company FlipSide Studio. I'm also a student at NAU getting my Bachelors of Science in Photography.

    I was an artist all my life and at 15..maybe 14 I found that photography was my new favorite way to get my vision to paper. As of four years ago I decided it was what I wanted to do for a living and I haven't looked back since. It's been an up and down ride. I'm still learning how to conduct business as a photographer and hope to learn a lot about that here.

    My favorite work is done in the studio, which I am just now learning and having lots of fun with. I shoot film whenever I can, but have a d200 that I use mostly for business as I do not have a scanner at the moment.

    my website is at www.flipsidestudio.net

    Welcome aboard Brie.

    I would have though that Photography would be a BA :scratch:

    Most schools these days do not offer a bachelors of science in photography so you're right, normally you would have to get a bachelors of fine arts (which seems like a huge waste of time to me). At Northern Arizona University the Photo program is under the school of Communication so I the curriculum is taught from more of a business perspective. It's great, and I find it to be very useful. I got done with a Comm Theory class last spring in which I learned a lot of theory that can be applied to my work.

    I'll probably be unable to go but I'll see what I can do. I live in Flagstaff so I'm not the closest to everything.

    Back in the near dark ages Ohio State offered a BA or BFA in Photography and Cinema. I got the BA. I always dreamed of going to RIT to get a BS in Photography. Too many $$$

    It's a great program, I wish more schools would offer similar ones so I could transfer and get out of Flagstaff. I've only found a handful of other schools that do.
