    I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but here it goes.

    What kind of education do you pro photographers have? Did you just work as an assistant for a photographer and learn all the tricks of the trade? Or have you had some sort of college education? Or maybe, you just took some courses? I quite curious because I want to start a photography business eventually, but I'm not sure how I go about that and how and where I learn about it.

    Thanks!

    Lots of people start photography businesses without any kind of formal qualification. To a large degree it is art. If you know the technicals of using the camera and a few tricks, know how to work with light, then you are nearly there. Apprenticing is then only giving you the practical business experience.
