A new career path has intrigued me to the point where I have decided to really invest my summer in exploring the possibility! A friend/photographer named Sarah Rhoades (some of her pictures are shown below) caused this initial spark of interest - her blog is fabulously designed and lets you view her work and understand what she does so clearly. Go here to check it out - http://www.sarahrhoads.com/blog/
I have always either incorporated photographs into my design work, been extremely inspired by it, or just plain enjoyed looking at them. I collect old photographs and have my very favorite blogs that are constantly updated with gorgeous pictures and colors. It is crazy to me that I am just now realizing that becoming a photographer could be a very fulfilling career path - not to mention financially fulfilling too - if it's done right and well. Sarah, my friend mentioned above, shoots weddings, engagement photos, and individual portraits. I feel that young couples are definitely looking for someone with a unique voice that can capture them at such a vibrant time in their lives... and I now plan on exploring the possibility of making this happen as Sarah Rhoads did.
It is the first time in a long time that I have really been excited about something. Don't get me wrong, I do love being a Graphic Design major because I have learned so much about the creative world but... I have had multiple design internships and jobs and just DON'T LIKE IT. I want to LOVE what I do so I am going search elsewhere for a while...
These images inspired me today :)
The one on the Brooklyn Bridge is my favorite!
