What are some tips and suggestions to becoming a professional Photographer or Videographer?

I am a junior in high school and ever since I was little I had been interested in Photography and Videography (Probably because I grew up in a family of Photographers). Though I had been trying to get more and more into these two subjects because I usually like being able to capture the moment(s). So, I was wondering if there would be any tips and advice that I could get in order to be able to become successful in these two subjects as either a full-time or part-time job. I heard that it is very hard for those who have photography as a priority because it is difficult trying to find someone who will be interested in your specific style in both photography and videography. It would be helpful knowing how to start off and put yourself out there where people would be able to properly acknowledge the story that the picture or film is trying to put across... Starting off has never been a problem but the motivation has been a struggle when I doubt the end product. How are people also so confident in what they produce? #photography #videography #job-skills #photojournalism #digital-photography #video-production #video #media-production

Is it better to get good grades or to make connections?

Hi, there! I'm curious as to how to succeed in school, and I'd love to know what my priorities should be. A lot of people have told me that connections are the best resource we get from college, and that it's what most helps with our aspirations. I'm hoping to become a photojournalist, and I've become involved in various clubs, and I've also gone on some career fair/networking events on and off campus. At the same time, I'm doing my best to maintain a 4.0, though it's becoming harder as time passes. So I figured: why not try to figure out what I need to focus on and make time for? So to anyone who's already "made it", what got you to where you are: grades or connections? #journalism #online-media #online-journalism #broadcast-media #broadcast-television #writing-and-editing #writer #photojournalism #networking

I plan to go to school to study Biblical Studies at Grace College in Indiana, and I wanted to know what is the best way to get into Missionary work. I want to start a blog about my missions and post my photography. Photography is a side job and would love to share other people's stories on my website to help get more hands involved in mission work. #missionwork #photography #missionary #missions #blogging #blogger #christian #christian-college #love-for-job #biblical-history #photojournalism #journalism #online-journalism #photographer
