It is official. I just finished requesting all of the information I need to register for photography school.
This is honestly my biggest passion - telling pictures through images.
I am serious about finally doing something about it.
Here's the deal, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Telecommunications (which is Broadcast Journalism.) I have taken tons of classes on video. Now I want those images to stand still and speak volumes. I want to capture moments. I want to be creative in my own way.
Now is the time.
So I have a plan...
I will enroll in the program in November of 09. Then - by February, I will purchase a newer camera (super nice one.) But June, I will purchase a nice, new Mac. Then by August - I will purchase Photoshop. By the following November, the program will be over - and my hope is to have a portfolio and officially begin working specifically in the world of photography.
What does that mean?
I hope to open a studio.
The good news is - I can start by freelancing in order to build the portfolio.
I know it sounds silly - but I have been wanting to do this for YEARS. Why wait any more?
I have a long way to go - but I have a plan. I will continue to work, and do what I do - then I can make the transition when it makes financial sense.
Also - it is a great back up, for when and if Yass and I move back to Egypt. It is something that requires very little "arabic."
WOO HOO.. so the secret is out.
I will add another skill to my tool belt of all things media related. Yippee... I am thrilled.
