How many professional photographers still use film cameras?
Common modern photography is a professional level digital camera, a computer, and a printer. I am not saying that all professional photographers use digital cameras now but many do. This also not say that professional digital cameras aren't expensive because they are. Many photographers do not have degrees in photography while others do.
"Equipment and facilities available while pursuing a degree I believe are not for commercial purposes, otherwise it's an abuse of privilege. Contacts, experience, feedback, are all fairly easily accessible, without the need for a degree in it.
Finally, "much more likely to be successful" is hardly a guarantee of success, and it doesn't rebut the claim that it's still reasonably useless. It is quite an idealistic fantasy neglecting to account for the competitiveness of the industry itself.
Reality check, top 10 of the world's best photographers/photojournalists, most if not all do not possess a degree in photography." mderi2012
I thought that was already pretty obvious
