So in the organization i work for there is a photography job that has opened up. Requirements are high school diploma and 4 years photography experience. I meet the educational requirements, went to college and got a business degree, but picked up photography well after college and graduation.
The application starts off asking for a Resume to attach or copy. and here is where i run into my first question. My entire career has been in business administration and customer service. I have been doing photography personally for fun for a few years, but i have no "professional experience". I mean i've done some paying gigs for product photography and some family portraiture stuff, but its not what i'd call a side business or any sort of regular income.
My entire photographic journey has been self taught, i've taken no formal classes. Its all been reading books, articles, websites and watching stuff on youtube. That and just lots of practice.
If i have free time, i want to spend it doing something photography related.
So I guess my real question is how do i convey this information in a resume to be seen by some corporate hiring manager and have them not immediatly toss my resume into the big old round file?
