    On one hand you could wait for it to change, or on the other hand you could be one of those helping to make the change, which I see you are well positioned for with your choices in the next phase of your life. Why not be one of those making the change?

    All the best!

    Lasalle is offering Diploma in Fine Arts Photography, but you'll need to complete a 1 year foundation studies (includes painting, drawing and all sorts).
    Think before you enter Lasalle

    Just to share; I'm currently a NAFA student, and the things I learn in school are very useful, though not all. I did not regret choosing NAFA, however.. you need to be very dedicated, as assignments stack like there is no tomorrow. So therefore time management has to be good. And NAFA has the tools you need in the design world.

    And yes very true that art cannot feed you in Singapore.
    I guess you are in visual comm or multimedia?
    Oh yeah 1st year basically the sch teaches all foundation subjects from fine arts to air brush and photography. But too bad air brush was discontinued after my batch.
    Time management is useless in my previous course cos tutor will only approve your final design before the assessment and everybody is rushing sleepless day and night without tomorrow just to complete. Its either you do it or you fail.

    Yes, TP rocks!! They treat their students as customers.

    TP is customer-oriented, the customer is always right. Go TP!

    how many out there are actually studied photography, but doing something as a career?
    I have quite a few classmates who ended up working office jobs. Damn sad life.
    im working non-photography job. How sad is that. But yearning to come back to photography line. Haha

    Not only do you need better skills (where digitalization has evened out the playing field), you need opportunities as well. Oh, and if you can speak/talk well, it's a bonus.

    Yah, especially wedding photographers, must have good sense of humour too, cause must say jokes to make the bride/ bridegroom smile.

    I really regret not brushing up on my bullshit-ting skills, no offence to everyone here who think otherwise. But i have seen first hand, really cmi photographers, managing to persuade unsuspecting people to buy their works, by persuasion.

    Damn i need lots of practice talking to people in person from now on... too introvert no good if wanna do photography business. Haha

    i think the photography market in sg is slowly becoming more and more saturated...those who can communicate their ideas well, tend to seal the deal.

    Confirm saturated. We have people who picked up photography for just a few months, then can set up website to offer their photographing services liao. Amazing.
