The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. – Steve Jobs
So as of September this year I will have officially finished my education, leaving me with a BA in Graphic Design and (hopefully) a MA in Fine Art. With the iminent end of my degree looming I’ve been panicking as to what to do with my degrees and what career I wanted. After a lot of worrying, tears, stress and fear I came across the quote above and it really resonated with me. I started listing things that I love to do:
- Painting and sketching
For writing I am lucky that I have this blog, it gives me the perfect opportunity to let the literary muses flow; my other creative outlets are overtaken with uni work at the moment and I find myself not wanting to paint or sketch at home very often. But one thing I do find myself doing quite often is photography. I love it. I’ve always believed in the importance of documenting everyday, memories are so important and photos are a perfect way to capture a moment.
AND THEN IT CLICKED
If I adore taking pictures, why had I not ever considered it as a career? With a few months left of university and time not being on my side, it’s time to start writing up a plan of action and that’s what I tend to do from here on out. As well as focusing my degree and speciality more so that I can be the best photographer that I can be.
