    I'll be sorting out a serious portfolio soon, ultimately I want to be a graphic designer but I also have an interest in photography so could potentially offer this as a service. Is it a good idea to combine my photography service alongside a graphic design website - or should it be kept seperate in your opinion?

    Any opinions are appriciated! Thanks.

    Hi, at what stage are, college, Uni, working?

    I would keep the two separate but I guess you could offer as addition service.
    Best of luck to you.

    I'm at Uni at the moment doing a Computing degree. But after realising the techy side of computing aint for me I'm going to be switching to "Creative Digital Media" this september.

    I don't think there's any harm in combining them since the two often intermingle anyway. Just make sure you have a strong portfolio in both individually.

    There are so many areas of design, and so many areas of photography so it's going to be tough to 'specialise'.

    I would think that it'd be best to concentrate on your design, and try to improve photography skills you'll need as a designer... i.e. Product Shots, Still Life... look at creativity in photography too, if you are a designer it will help you create images in camera and lead you away from heavily 'shopped' imagery which, unfortunately, we all have to deal with at some point :)
