The old saying "It's good to talk" has made it into my head recently. After speaking to various friends and peers of mine I've decided I really need to look at my direction as regards to careers. Some people are really into the course, where as I feel a little that it's not quite right for me.
Imagine a big circle full of little dots, each dot represents a person. There people whose thoughts are purely graphics/illustration based are in the middle of the circle. I feel I'm drifting a little towards the edge of the circle. Originally I was under the impression that photography would have a decent involvement within the course, but It hasn't been so. Fortunately I can do graphic design proficient enough to keep my grades maintained thought I'd rather be behind the camera taking some interesting snaps.
How am I going to do this? Well After an indepth chat with Luke Bonner I've realised I need to be compilling a portfolio of my best photos. Maybe then I can approach an established photographer and be an assistant just so I can get a feel for things. If things feel right, then I know if I want to persue photography professionally.
Below is my portfolio booklet so far:
