photography as a career

I receieved a job offer today inviting me for an interview as a photographer, but I really don’t know if I want to be a real photographer.

It’s been two years since I first ventured into photography. I adopted photography as a hobby but photography as a means of livelihood? I think I would still want to see my name appear in the local broadsheet than be a full time photographer.

The drive of being a writer overwhelms my hobby as a photographer. I really don’t know why I clicked that APPLY HERE link when I was looking for a job weeks ago. All I ever wanted is to be a reporter, the one who goes to events, interviews people, writes articles and waits for my work to get published. All I wanted is to bag a job where I will know and prove my worth in this world, but my luck in jobhunting can still be found in nowhere as of this writing.

Like what the captain in Wall-E said, “I don’t want to survive. I want to live!” so I might as well make the most out of my stay here on Earth and live the life I want to be –as a journalist.

Still dreaming. Still hoping. Still making an effort to be better in writing.
