Aspiring photographer Brooklyn Beckham is reported to be quitting his photography course just a few months after moving across the pond to study.
The 18 year old relocated to New York last year, where he has been part of a course at the prestigious Parsons School of Design since August. But U.K. media are now suggesting the eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham is considering dropping out in favor of an internship with a leading photographer.
He has apparently had a number of offers from various individuals, as well as industry bigwigs, who have promised to take the young talent under their wing. Beckham is said to be weighing up his options so as to determine where he’d be best placed.
For someone relatively new to the industry, Beckham already has a number of career achievements under his belt, including shooting a Burberry campaign, and releasing a photo book — the latter of which received heavy critique for its “terrible photos and even worse captions.”
Further education in creative subjects has been the topic of much discussion in recent years, with their relevancy questioned. In an industry dictated so heavily by the mantra “who you know, not what you know,” should Beckham ditch his course in favor of first-hand experience with working photographers?
