There are many careers that can happen when you get a degree in photography. You can be your own business person and become a photographer for weddings. You can work with celebrities, work with newspapers and magazines or be an artist all in your own light.
When selecting the right type of photography course for you, determine your current skill level. If you haven't taken any courses yet, then starting with a beginning course is a good idea. If you have, you may need to determine if everything has been covered for you.
