I am stuck between wanting to be a Photographer and being an animal trainer...How do I decide which would benefit me more?
My whole life I have LOVED animals, I've lived with many different species and kinds of animals. Everywhere from a classic house cat or dog, I've had birds, lizards, fish, ferrets, bunnies, guinea pig's, snakes, all the way to weird exotic animals like a capybara, zebra, we had an elephant, kangaroo, we've had normal farm animals like horses, cows, goats, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, ect. Besides loving to learn about all my different animals I always, always did photoshoots with my animals. As my photography teacher has always said "I have an eye for the difference" I see things differently than others, I look at things in a different perspective. #animals #veterinarian #zoology #photo #photography #help #collage
I always encourage people to follow their passion. Sometimes we need to work a job to pay bills, but we can live our passion in the meantime and build that business/blog/website/etc.
I would leverage your photography teacher said about you seeing a different perspective. It is such a gift to find our personal perspective on life and share that with the world. #pov
Best wishes for great success!
I think you can be animal trainer first and learn somethings about animal then you can take your camera to start taking photo for animals. I think you can bring two passion together.
all the best.
In terms of educational careers, I would recommend a Liberal Arts Program - The goal of the BCC Liberal Arts Program is to develop students’ foundational knowledge and skills through a wide variety of academic disciplines in preparation for informed engagement in their communities, the ever-changing economic landscape, and successful transfer to a four-year institution. I love this program because it has 21 Free Electives which allows you to choose different courses and explore what you like so you may take some visual art courses as well as biology or environmental science courses that relate to your love for animals.
Below is the link to the program I mentioned. -Karen R.L.
