I know absolutely nothing about becoming and being a videographer, but am intrigued with this profession. Hopefully, one or more of you can help me with some answers to my questions. What type of training is required, how long is the training, what's the cost of training and where is training offered? What type of equipment is needed and what is the cost of equipment? Are the majority of videographers employed by reporting firms or are they freelancers? What is the average income for a full-time videographer? And any other information you can give me about the profession of videography will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for anyone's help and/or input. This seems like a profession that will become more in demand as time goes on.
