If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be a photographer. My main goal in this pursuit, would be to take pictures that inspire others to want to do the same. Photography to me is not taking a picture but capturing a moment. My goal would be to share this goal with everyone. In this way I can share my passion for photography and the moment itself and hopefully reach others.
There are many paths that can be taken to become a photographer. I personally would gain an associates degree in photo journalism and then major in photography itself to gain a bachelors degree. That way I would have experience in both journalism and the studio and commercial aspects of photography. This insures that I will be able to reach my audience more effectively because I can take pictures in many different styles that speak to a wide variety of audiences. After I gain my degree I would love to be a photojournalist photographer. I want to capture the nature of people and life in general and show that to the world. In closing, where this dream may not be my actual path or direction in college, it is an aspect that is close to my heart and I hope to some day make a reality.
