As aspiring photography, videography, or print creatives, knowing who you are is an essential step in the process of launching your creative career.

Creative careers are rewarding. Those who are lucky enough to succeed at creative careers find their work meaningful and fulfilling. They will tell you that it is a privilege to support themselves by doing what they love.

Yet, creative paths aren’t always easy to pursue. Every creative professional encounters challenges in his or her career, and you will too. Regardless of the specific challenges you face, knowing who you are, what your values are and why your work matters to you will help you overcome anything. Your cultural roots can serve as a compass if ever you feel lost and as fuel if ever you feel stuck.

What you need to do.

At this stage, participants are to outline and explain the options that are available in selecting and kickstarting their creative journey by selecting their area of interest - photography, videography or printing.
