I am going to take the time to put my thoughts on individuals going to school and working towards a degree in photography. I look at it this way, if it’s something that helps you gain knowledge in the art of photography, if it helps you to understand the history of photography, then I say, “Go for it.”
Recently, a friend of mine was dragged through the mud so to speak, because they worked hard to earn a degree in photography. To this individual I say, ” You should be proud of your accomplishment. I envy your achievement and your sacrifice to earn this degree. You’re an inspiration to all of us who yearn to learn more about photography. Keep working, keep shooting, and most of all, Have fun.” Nuff said.
