Hello New World,
I have some news. I started working!
Yeah, I ‘m tired.
You would think that I would be well rested, because I took two weeks off, from my classes. I decided to do some overtime. Christmas is right around the corner, and my daughter wants the latest and greatest something.
Well, the other change that I have made in my life is the place I plan on attending for photography. It was no secret that I wanted to attend the Art Institute of Washington, for photography. It seems like a very right choice, at the moment. They have a beautiful facility, due in part of the highly artistic students. It felt like a no brainer, at the time. Until they sat me down, and talked to me about the price. The cost, for a certificate, was a little high, for my price range, and I had used up my Financial Aid with the University of Phoenix. So I became a little discouraged. The enrollment counselor, for the Art Institute, told me to apply for scholarships. I really appreciated the help she offered, but for someone of my age, yeah, I am only 21 (LOL!), scholarships are not readily available. So I began to look in another direction. Thus, finding the Washington School of Photography.
“Washington School of Photography offers many courses, ranging from traditional film and darkroom
practice to digital media, in addition to a Professional Program leading to a certificate in
professional photography. WSP’s state-of-the-art facility features a black-and-white darkroom; a dedicated digital teaching area;
and a professional shooting studio.”
So, I went to the Open House the school was hosting on December 1st. It was mainly for students looking to gain there certificate, in Professional Photography. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted that, as well, but since the school is geared toward working professionals, I felt like I may need a few courses. I know I need lighting, business, and portraiture. The school has a very loving environment that is geared directly in photography. This means that you do not have to worry about theory courses, which is a huge plus for me. The school offers outside individuals the opportunity to learn, as well. The Washington School of Photography offers workshops. In fact, there are quite a few workshops that I would love to check. Also, a huge deciding factor was the price. The total price, of their certificate program, is $8,000. The Art Institute is $9,000 more than WSP!
In fact, don’t take it from me. Take time out to find out for yourself.
