Becoming a professional photographer. The years of going to photography school and the ability to learn what you need to be a photographer. More
I started the photography program at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale in 1975. It was in the beginning years for the school, where they did not have to many instructors, but the instructors they did have, were professional photographers still working in their field. I must say, I learned a lot from the instructors that were there at that time. Many of them from Big organizations like Playboy, Nikon, Canon, and the Miami Herald. Many students started, but only a few in numbers graduated, and went on to become some type of professional photographer. The following e-book is from the mid 1970's filled with black and white images that started my career.
