The Arts and Humanities As a Career/ Monmouth County NJ Photographer

Pursuing The Arts and Humanities

Pursuing the arts or humanities as a career has a bad reputation. A lot of people think you will not find a job or make enough money to survive. This stigma prevents thousands of people from chasing their dreams. Our society twists the arts and humanities into an outrageous career path. Even more shocking, many people find the arts and humanities a waste or a disappointment. Instead of embracing these dreams as the beauty they are, we shy away from these misleading stigmas. When did we start putting the hopes and dreams of others down?


New Jersey is Lucky

Living in Central New Jersey, I am close to one of the biggest art hubs of the world- New York City. I am lucky enough to hop on a train and be in a place where the arts and humanities shine. And some of that courage to pursue the arts bleeds through the state border and into Jersey. There are some great art museums in Jersey. And there are definitely a lot of places where you can go to get inspired.

But Sometimes That is Not Enough

You still read news articles of schools dying art programs and clubs. The academic system, even from elementary school, is finding it hard to place the arts in its budget. We need the ability to explore music and painting. And with all the stress from school, art can be a therapeutic release. I actually know someone who did just this.  But kids aren’t getting that option anymore. Due to this, the arts and humanities seem unimportant. It’s almost like schools aren’t even allowing children to explore art classes to see if that’s what they want to do in life. Simply because the education system doesn’t consider it to be “realistic.”

Life in The Arts

As a photographer, I am so happy with my decision to pursue the arts as my career. I chose to do what I love. I get to meet new people sometimes from all over the world. More importantly, I get to see the happiness that my service brings to my customers. It’s an indescribable feeling to have my photos bring joy to others. Also, I don’t even consider it “work” because I love doing it so much!



It’s time others should experience the same happiness I do! Let’s stop invalidating the arts as a career.

Continuing an Education

Continuing an Education


An active and educated mind is so important in life. A strong education can set you apart from a competitor. Also it can prepare you for a career, and more. Sometimes we don’t appreciate how lucky we are to have great education systems. With the amazing school system in  Monmouth County, our children are given great schools from childhood to adulthood.  


After We Graduate, Should We Continue Learning?

             I wholeheartedly believe that we should never stop learning. Students always say that it is hard to take classes they enjoy. Especially while they are working towards a degree. But if you are not following a curriculum, you can find classes for absolutely anything. From classes about Lady Gaga to zombies and unpopular movies, you can find just about any class that will peak your interest. 

Recently, I took Noelle Mirabella’s photography workshop. And, trust me, it Blew my mind. First of all, this workshop teaches you to see things differently when you are working behind the lens. From taking photos to editing them, her workshop discusses absolutely everything. And most importantly, she teaches everything in a new and interesting way. Her heart is so pure that it show’s in her photograph’s. For someone who works with photography constantly, It is so amazing  to be able to gain more knowledge. Because of this workshop, I realized you can always learn something new. To further my education with photography, I will consistently be looking to learn more. Monmouth-county-photographer


Never Stop Learning

In addition, in New Jersey, there are hundreds classes you can take to further your education. Most noteworthy, you don’t have to be behind a desk to learn something. There are different ways in which people learn. For example, if you’re a hands-on learner, you can find immersive classes. These classes allow you to involve yourself in lessons and activities. Maybe you’re a visual learner, you can take classes with photos, videos, and charts. And now in the digital age, you can take classes from the comfort of your own home online! In conclusion, you can have fun while learning something new. 


A huge thank you to Cass Vanhorn for teaching me a better way!
