    Hi there,

    Im in my final year at university and we've been asked to make a plan for the next year which will aid our career choices. The thing is I'm really looking into becoming a printer and all of our talks and handouts are directed towards digital and photographers so I have little information to go on as to what to expect and what my next steps should be. My biggest worry is that once uni is over i will have very little printing options due to lack of darkrooms in the north west. Do I apply for an artist in residence programme? Or do I aply for an internship with a lab? Or do I apply directly to printers themselves?
    Any help would be greatly and massively appreciated.

    Thanks :smile:

    It might help respondents to help you if you said the North West of where.
