    I'm studying in Sweden on a program called MARK-IT which stands for Marketing & IT. This is my final year and for my final year I have to write an essay (about 40pages long orso). I got pretty much free hands to write about anything I want, as long as it got somewhat relevance to my program (Marketing or IT).

    Our teacher told us that we should write about something that we can have use for or something that we really enjoy, something that we "burn" for. In my case, one of the things I really enjoy is of course photography. So I've been thinking about if I could write anything about that.

    It could be a business concept, or a hypothesis or anything that I can examine.

    Do you guys have any idea of what I possible could be writing about that is photography relevant and preferably also marketing or IT relevant?

    Hmm, maybe something like "What does it take to become a professional commercial photographer?" , and then I could contact different professional photographer and interview them on how they became professional and what's it like, etc. Would that be interesting?

    Hmm, interesting. Hasn't it already changed though, since several years ago?

    You can do a report from 2000 on. The fact that we just had the first digital presidential photo made me realize how much things have changed since. To us it seems like digital has been around forever (the younger crowd, or new to photo), but it's still very recent.

    How about a paper examining the sort of imagery used by advertisers fifty years ago, with what is prevalent now. What are/were the most common images? Examine how photography (stylistically and technically) was/is used. The digital revolution can be traced, and you might talk about how that revolution in producing images has affected people in the various levels of marketing. You might want to have a section dealing with where the cutting edge of digital photography is now, and project where it will be in the future.
