Hi everyone, I've been thinking lately about studying photography. I am about to finish High School and I've always been unsure about what I should study... The educational system in my country is pretty screwed up, on 8th grade you have too choose between 3 educational plans (Sciences, Computer Sciences and Philosophy/Languages) and I obviously chose the last option because as any 8th grader, I was scared of maths, physics or chemistry and I really regret it now, I really love technology and science and now I am kind of stuck with a list of careers I can choose that don't have much of what I like such as Law School, Journalism, when I would be way more interested into Architecture, Finance or design, however I suck and drawing so meh... I have always been a geek, I'm really good at using computers and I really like photography, I got a Nikon D3100 a few years ago and it was really life changing for me to be able to take great pictures of what is around me and I really enjoy making beautiful compositions and I even got some compliments on some pictures I've taken, however I have to admit that nowadays the camera makes anyone a good photographer. I really lack a lot of knowledge in the domain and I am really interested to learn more, but I never thought about studying this, mainly because it is an art and art is a risky business economically thinking. I imagine most pro-photographers either were really into photography even before college or got into it randomly during college and studied a more solid career such as economics or business management or similar things that can be applied in many domains and they can eventually help you even in photography so I if I take this step I would be completely submerged in this domain, I got pretty pumped about this idea when I realized that there are things that are appealing, I mean I almost can't find cons besides the economic risks and whatever. However I think I could handle it and eventually have success, my dream would be to eventually have a little studio/company that does things less boring as they are now at least in my city and I imagine that I would have a lot of things in common with people in this career. What do you guys think, did you study photography in order to be one, does it help or is it a silly educational choice?
