To MFA or Not to MFA
I’ve had this discussion with a number of folks, and the arguments for one side or the other never seem to get any less compelling. Seems this topic is of as much interest to writers as photographers.
The key question any aspiring photographer (or writer) ought to be asking is “What are my goals or my vision of success?” More specific answers are more useful. This kind of question helps to clarify what benefits an advanced degree might bring, what might be provided by simple workshops or of simply working for years in the field.
