It's funny how when I was graduating from high school I was so happy I'd never have to go to school again. The truth is, I was not a good student in grade school or high school.
Moving ahead I liked college a lot. Majoring in biology things really took off for me academically, and later got my degree. Photography found me about that time as well, and the rest is, well, history. It became an obsession as it still is today.
Taking classes at every opportunity, online classes, and webinars is a way of life. It seems like there is so much to learn and so little time. I't's my passion to learn new things, and continuing formal education is just one. Having recently gotten back from the Texas School of Professional Photography, the week was intense on learning some new skill sets that will help me keep me moving in a creative direction.
If you have a student or are a student struggling to find your place in this world, sometimes it just takes a little patience. And when you least expect it, it finds you!
