Fashion Photography (14)

Hi,
Currently I go to a university studying computer engineering and japanese but recently I have become unhappy with computer engineering (but not Japanese) and I was thinking about getting into fashion photography. I was looking in fashion magazines and just seeing this beautiful art form. I just wanted to ask if anyone else was also in or studying to become affilated with the fashion photography industry and how it was? Is it over saturated with photographers and also how demanding and competitive is it? I find this art form so beautiful and breath taking that I just want to start doing it. I don't know anything about photography though but I just would like to know just about the demand for photographers in that industry.
Thank you

I don't know much about the industry itself, but I have a friend who is going to be attending art school for just that.

Photography is really fun, there are hundreds of good internet resources for people who want to start taking good photos.

Very small extremely competitive market low pay long hours.

Don't change your major, take up photography as a hobby.

you need to keep upgrading your tools of trade (cameras) its expensive and risky if you dont have an eye for composition/colours etc

I think I might have been the one to post that, not sure.

Anyway, strongly seconded.

I've always wanted to be in the fashion career but now that >>3 says that, it's sounds like that's not the greatest thing for some people. If you would like some advice on that career then, I mostly agree with all of the posts because they are all true, but the good thing is you would be making the models feel good about them selfs everyday and that's what fashion photography is all about.

Unless you're talking about some sub-culture photography such as cosplay etc
The real fashion photography is completely closed world of gay/rich/aristocracy so its unlike you will archive anything

Gay fashion is wild enough to drive me mad
