5 Reasons to study Photography

Photography is always an aspiring career option for anyone interested in the art of seeing and storytelling. It has become a stable profession now…as the need for a good photographer is in high demand.

There are a lot of photographers earning higher than the standard academic persons doing routine jobs.

Most important quality to pursue and be successful in photography is ‘passion for the art’ A passionate person can dedicate his/her time effectively in learning and become useful.

They must be willing to work 24X7 with a target to achieve

Though photography is a lot of fun, it should be learned and practiced seriously. Persons with an artistic bent of mind and who think out of the box have a better chance to become successful professionals.
In the present scenario, they must be willing to learn throughout their life and update the technology and trend.

There is nothing like ‘self taught’ in photography. We pick up lot of information from other photographers and their photos. Internet, You-tube, books, are other sources photographers learn and update. This helps the self taught photographers to do some trial and error basis learning. But as the need of today, a good photography school can help the students in the following five ways.

  1. The learners are given ample scope to understand all the possible technics and art through the structured curriculum
  2. A formal education gives lot of self confidence and helps to solve the problems thrown at them quickly and efficiently.
  3. A formal education makes learning fast and reduces the possibilities of mistakes that happens otherwise. For example, a phot ographer who has attended a formal course will be able to master the technics, art and business in a couple of years. Whereas, others may take years to achieve the same through a lot of trials and guess work.
  4. Most importantly, a good photography school can give hands-on experience on some of the expensive and rare state of the art equipment, facilities, special skills and real time job experience.
  5. A formal education gives an opportunity to develop contacts and network for business developments in the initial stage of the career.

These opportunities may or may not happen even after a long time for a self-learned photographer.
