Photography contributes to both the cultural and economic aspects of society, and a medium that many aspiring artists hope to pursue as a life’s work. If you’re serious about photography, a college degree should be at the top of your list.
Why should you get a degree?
The easy accessibility of cameras and the ease with which more people can distribute their work to the public creates an increasingly competitive job market for aspiring photographers. However, the education and training that someone with a bachelor’s degree has is a real advantage and is one of the most important career resources you can have as an aspiring photographer. A BFA will differentiate you as a candidate with well-honed abilities in creative concept, problem-solving, communication and top-notch technical skills.
From fashion photography to photojournalism, the possibilities for a career in photography are wide-open to someone with the education, training and vision that spells success. But, let’s begin with that art degree.
