I appologize in advance if this has been touched upon.
I just finished up my associates in Business. While driving home from my last class I started to question if that's what I really want to do. I decided it's really not. I don't want to be cramed in an office my entire life.
So I decided to look into photography schools such as New Ingland Institute of Art, New England School of Photgraphy, and Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University.
I have a feeling I'm going to run into a few problems.
1. Employment - I work full time 8-4 M-F. So obviously the majority of my classes would focus around evening and weekends.
2. My associates degree not being in art. I'm not sure if those schools mentioned above will recognized my associates in Business, meaning I'll have to do it all over again and that's a lot of money.
3. Cost - But that's a part of going to school, so I'm noto verly concerned with that aspect.
So now my question. Is it better to go for my bachelors in photography or a similar field, or is it better to go through a certificate program?
I understand that it's a ton of hard work, and what makes me realize it's what I want is the fact the hard work does not scare me like it did when I started school for my associates, or any one of my full time jobs. I'm ready and willing to accept the hard work.
Any advice would be super!
Thanks for reading.
