Ever since I was 5-years old I've been obsessed with wildlife, especially fish. I would spend hours watching the wildlife series by naturalists like David Attenborough; blissful childhood memories! As many of you know the other love in my life is photography. I've been pondering over the idea for the last few weeks as to whether I should try to become a professional photographer/videographer. I have the equipment I need, I have a fairly wide breadth of biological knowledge and my A-level tutors say I have good prospects for Uni. I've been reading books on the subject and looking at the work of other wildlife photo/videographers and I'm very keen on the idea. My mom seems to be very supportive of it, she just keeps telling me to follow my dream. I don't know where to start yet but I'm going to start asking people. My A-level biology tutor (also a professional photographer) has given me some very good advice and a few pointers just to get my started in the right direction. The question of the day is: does anybody on here think I could even stand a chance in something like this? I understand perfectly that pro photography is a very competitive, dog-eat-dog world and the pay is cr@p, the latter of which I'm not concerned about since I know that I'd rather have a career that I enjoy than be interested in the amount of money I get thrown at me. Any suggestions or words of wisdom folks? My brain is full to bursting at this point.
