I'm at a crossroad in life. I'll be graduating from a degree in economics and finance come July, and I'm deciding my career choice at the moment. Going through the list, private banking, economists, finance, etc etc... comes a possibility, a photographer.
Amongst the things I really want to do in life ( being an f1 driver, rally driver ) , being a photographer seems most realistic. Still, it is almost impossible to be successful in Singapore. My skills are below par, absolutely below a standard required to be successful. If I do decide to fiddle with the idea of becoming a real, professional, full time photographer. I'll probably have to take a year off to brush up my technical skills, especially in the area of lighting, studio lighting. My real interest in photography marries my passion for cars, I love Car Photography... be it journalistic or commercial. It is a niche market, which is good in a way. Of course being a car photographer entirely wouldnt be exactly feasible, I need to do other areas of photography too... perhaps glamour, product, etc etc, but primarily a car photographer. I need a huge studio to photograph cars, and lots of lighting. This studio (somewere damn ulu) could possibly be used for glamour, etc etc, rented out to other car photographers maybe.
I guess some of you could possibly be laughing your ass off reading this, because its like building castles in the air. Well, it is actually. Nothing concrete, just all ideas , all talk. Its such a big step to take, incredible. The possibilities of failure is enormous. And I have no capital at the moment. But i really want to do something I like in life... definitely nothing to do with what I study.
It is highly unlikely that I undertake this thought and ambition of mine. I wish I could have the guts to take the bite. My parents wouldnt be supportive in my opinion.
What are your thoughts ?
