Today I wanted to talk to you about my dream career which is journalism.
All throughout my childhood I’ve loved writing stories and mini reports of my day and diary entries which I still love to do today. I get to share my love for writing and journalism online with you guys all throughout my social media platforms which is honestly something just adore!
Journalism I believe is a very quietly spoken about topic in today’s media and news and general topics which disappoints me. Thankfully when I left high school, I was able to find a college in the last two weeks of summer and find a perfect course for me which included journalism.
I’ve recently taken a love for black and white photography thanks to the inspiring tutors I have as well as the incredible documentary photographers I have gotten to know and love the work of. Vivian Maier is my current favourite and her work speaks so loudly and has so much power of influence to me. I have also been loving the work of Sally Mann and Edward Burtynsky.
I want to be able to discuss my views and thoughts through not only words, but pictures too. With a high quality phone camera and a Nikon D3200 I’d like to say I have everything at the tips of my fingers. However, everything takes planning. Naturally as a photographer you take pictures of the world as it is and if you see the perfect opportunity to take a picture you do so immediately which is I think a good thing in photography.
For journalism however, it’s all different and reports take research and careful planning with interviews and all sorts of things.
If you are wanting to write about your dream career, I’d love to read your posts. After you’ve read this blog I’d love for you all to tell me your dream career and then post the link in the comment section. Let’s see what we can make of this.
Till next time,
Ps. I’d love for sittingintheclouds to do this! X
