Hi guys, I am 18 years old and right now I'm a freshman attending the University of Rochester to study Optical Engineering but I have a huge interest in photography. My first semester was very hard and I am starting to realize that engineering isn't for me. I am thinking about pursuing photography as a career and am looking around to other schools in the country to study photo. One school that stands out is RIT right here in Rochester. I would major in advertising photography and possibly do a minor in business. But I am concerned about the job market after school. I know photography is basically free lance which would be fine with me but I am curious as to how people acquire jobs and how I can stand out from the rest. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what school I should go to or any strategies to use with this route as a career. I would like to do more lifestyle or fashion photography but my main love is surfing and the ocean. My website is http://www.nickventuraphoto.com. Thanks!
