How to get into photography

I study Photography at college and have decided i would like to take it onto a career but i don't know how to go about it. Could you give me some tips, directions and advice of how i can enter the world of professional photography?

One of the best ways to get started in photography would be to work in a photo store or related shop area.

Note that many companies still offer official portrait services whereby you take photos of groups of people and so on.

Therefore a job like this would be ideal.

Also build up your own personal portfolio over time and enter photography competitions.

There may be a local photo society or club where you live and in which case you might get some great contacts and expert advice through this method too. Good luck!
