Would this degree be a waste of time? Some people told me that photogrpahy degree isn't gonna work out and I should find more realistic degree.
I really like wildlife photogrpahy but now i am afraid that it will be hard to find job after. I have search for other courses like photography with graphic design, graphic design don't really intrest me but atleast i would have other options. There was other one with photography and film production which I like more than graphic but would i still be able to get to wildlife photography after? Is marine and natural history photography degree really a waste of time?

Think I've replied to another one of your posts already but whilst some people may see as pursuing an art subject as a "waste of time." Photography and digital media is one of the largest growing job sectors and althought the course is based around natural history and marine life, you could very easily take this in any direction you feel, I have friends from a fashion background as well as zoological backgrounds who find photography a way of documenting there discoveries.

I also had people tell me dont bother with photography or art subjects but, if you enjoy it and its your passion, you'll get to where you want to be.

Best decision I have ever made coming to Falmouth.

I'm interested why you think that. Why do you feel the course is a waste of time?
