04 April 2010, 01:38 PM
Hello guys. My name is Maria. I was working as a fashion photographer for few years in both China and UK. But, you can not image how miserable my career plan for future is

I ve been UK for 3 years but photographer is totally not my cup of tea. Even I have gain few chance take part in several International photographic Festival but still can not find a full-time job.

Now I am seriously think about change my career into any post-production for film&Games.

My condition is : have very good experience in photography (lighting, explore,)
4 year BA in Fine art and Photography
No 3D exp,
but black-hand of Photoshop and composting, digital drawing
A residence of Mac OX....

Now the question comes up: I would like to take a diploma in 1-2 years in Canada. (Don't asked me why I always move to somewhere cold enough, just because my family will immigrate there soon)

Searched few film school, but the VFS is expensive enough to strike me. and I may not have enough portfolio for the interview. (all my staff is digital photography)

I also see Pacific Audio Visual Institute, Vancouver

If anybody got idea about my mapping, please say something.

Manythanks to you all!!

You might enjoy lighting and compositing.

Id learn both. Learn how to light and render in Maya (specifically with Mental Ray, learning Renderman wouldnt hurt either) and then learn a compositing app such as Nuke (or Fusion).
